Now is the fun part – tweaking your design until it’s perfect! We’ll listen to what you do & don’t like about the initial design(s) and revise till it’s right. When you’re happy, you’ll give your final approval and take care of your balance to move your order into production.

what past clients have to say
Chrissy was wonderful to work with…Chrissy helped my vision become reality. She created several artistic proofs to help me decide what combinations of fonts, layouts, and designs would be the best. She was very responsive, professional, and accommodating to what I envisioned. The final product was beautiful! I absolutely loved my invitations and received many compliments. I would certainly recommend Invitations by Chrissy to anyone!Allison - weddingwire
Chrissy totally got it! She designed the most beautiful invitations I have ever seen and they were designed for us, with us…I don’t think there was one guest that didn’t comment on how incredible our invitations were, and I agree completely!! I would absolutely use Chrissy for future work, and am hoping to do so whenever I can!Karen - weddingwire
