Tell me a little bit about your business!
Purple Wagon is a Pittsburgh-based invitation design company that specializes in unique wedding papers like save the dates, invitations, programs, place cards, table numbers, thank you notes, etc. We even do hand-written chalkboard signs for weddings and events. That’s one of our favorite things!
What makes your work unique?
I’m passionate about what I do and I’m committed to making my clients’ visions a reality! I take pride in my personalized approach to taking the stress out of designing wedding stationery. I’ll answer questions, make suggestions, and keep them on track. There’s already SO much to deal with when planning a wedding – I do whatever I can to make this part fun and painless!
What is your ideal client like?
I love working with people who are as excited about paper and their invitations as I am! It’s great when they have an idea of what they’re looking for before we meet, but it’s not necessary – some people need more guidance, and that’s ok, too! Anyone who is fun, easy-going, and excited about their wedding is someone I’d enjoy working with.
How do you work with couples to make their wedding paper dreams come to life?
I love to create “brands” and give everything a cohesive feel – from the save the date and the invitations to the ceremony programs, reception items, and even the thank you notes. I love pops of color and patterns…used with restraint. I believe form and function go hand-in-hand; that a beautiful invitation is useless if you can’t read it. Above all, I put my clients first, and make sure that whatever the final result is, it’s something that THEY are happy with.
I have designed invitations for every style of wedding – romantic and charming, classy and sophisticated, rustic and vintage, etc. The Purple Wagon Collection covers a wide range of themes and everything can be customized to make it more authentic to each couple.
