Highly recommended
From the first time I got in contact with Rae to do my wedding invitations she was polite, kind and very quick to answer any queries I had. She was fabulous with drafting up our invitations, she sent the proofs very quickly and make sure she kept us in the loop throughout the whole procedure. We received our invitations yesterday and are absolutely blown away with how beautiful and bespoke they look, we can’t wait to frame one to keep as a memento, we would highly recommend Made by Rae designs to anyone looking for wedding stationery.

Rae is a dream to work with!
Rae is a dream to work with! I was looking for something that went with my Snow White theme that wasn’t too childish and this was exactly what I was looking for! Shipping was fast and communication is fast despite the 5 hour time difference.

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding was a bespoke commission for an ultra-stylish and very private A-list celebrity couple. It was a real 'pinch me, is this really happening!?' moment :) Their wedding was breathtakingly beautiful and 100% eco friendly too!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Eco-lux, vintage, floral, bohemian, illustrative.

What about your business are you most proud of?

1) Providing value for money and down-to-earth good customer service. Let's face it, wedding planning can be stressful, so whatever I can do to make this part of the process stress-free and enjoyable is of paramount importance to me. I answer emails promptly, keep clients updated, deliver when I say I'm going to, and I'm here to offer advice whenever needed :) 2) My business is super eco-friendly! I only offer stationery that's made from sustainable/recycled papers, and everything is sourced from UK paper mills. I also print everything at my studio in Worcestershire. 3) I serve EVERYONE. Whatever your background, sexual orientation, religion, race or class, you can expect to feel valued, welcomed and treated with respect :)

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

This is your day, so do it your way. And try to make your wedding as eco-friendly / waste-free as you can.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

-- A little photo display remembering lost love ones -- Favours that have been handmade by the couple.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

If you are interested in placing an order the first thing I offer is a friendly, no-obligation consultation to discuss your requirements. I'll then email you an itemised quotation that will detail what's included, delivery times, payment details etc, and I will answer any questions/queries you may have. I will then send you a free sample. If you would then like to place a bulk order I will ask you for your wedding information/text along with a deposit. Then within 5-working days I will email you high-resolution proofs to for you to check for any errors/typos etc. Any textual amendments are carried out free of charge and amended pdf proofs are emailed to be checked again. Once you have approved your proofs, the balance can be paid and your finished order will be delivered via 1st class recorded delivery within 2-3 weeks thereafter. Shorter turnarounds can be offered for urgent orders. At any point during the process, from inquiry up until delivery (and afterward) you are very welcome to get in touch. I am always at hand if you need any advice or a chat about anything you may be concerned with.

What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?

I'd say the invitation, for sure. It gives your guests an exciting glimpse of what it is to come.

What is your best seller?

The majority of my workload is made up of bespoke commissions, which I love as it keeps things interesting and challenging.

What is the most innovative delivery method you have come across?

I always use Royal Mail first class recorded delivery, or clients are always welcome to pick up in person if they live nearby :)

How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?

The stationery I produce is design-led, so I use a lot of illustrations, fonts and calligraphy.
