My #WeddingPaperDivas Bridal Shower Invites & Thank You Cards #IC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Wedding Paper Divas. 
I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

(Also note that I have edited most of these photos to omit any contact information or addresses to protect the privacy of my loved ones--so that is why there are blank spaces in the pictures.)

Hello my lovelies! We have some wedding talk happening today! Do you remember when I posted about my Wedding Paper Divas sample kit? WELL now I am going to tell you all about the bridal shower invites and thank you cards that I ordered from Wedding Paper Divas!
In April I'm having 2 bridal showers: one for Michael's mom's side of the family, and one for mine. This means I needed 2 very important kinds of stationary: bridal shower invitations and thank you cards (for all the gifts I'll be receiving at the showers!) And, as always, Wedding Paper Divas delivered an amazing experience and spectacular results!

First, we needed to choose which designs to get. For the thank you cards I found the prettiest, simplest, most affordable options and then Michael helped me narrow it down to the Flourish Focus Thank You Cards. For the bridal shower invites I chose about 6 or 7 of my favorite designs and let my mom choose her shower invitation from that and Michael's mom choose hers. My mom went with the Dreamy Details shower invitations and Michael's mom chose the Rose Ring ones. I loved all of them!

BUT-we definitely needed to do some customization. Using the amazing Wedding Paper Divas website I was able to enter in all the bridal shower information for the invites and customize the color of the Dreamy Details to "red lantern". I was also able to add notes with specific requests (such as that the font colors be changed to match the custom color and that my wedding website be added to my mom's shower invites, and to request on Michael's mom's shower invites that they include both my and Michael's names). Same basic principle for the thank you cards-I entered our names, customized the color to "rich red", and asked them to change the font to match. (If you're adding photos to personalize, Wedding Paper Divas is great for that too! There are a variety of ways you can import photos onto the site and you can play around with everything until it's perfect. I had experience with this when I made my Save the Dates.)
Then came my favorite part: free proofs! Every Wedding Paper Divas order comes with complimentary online proofs. Within a couple days of placing your order (which--there's like...always coupons! Which always makes my deal-loving heart happy!) you get an email with your proof(s). And it's a real person who emails you. And this person took time and thought about it and they will edit certain things in your order to make them look better or flow more nicely or to keep in line with etiquette (things which you can 100% change if you don't like). You review your proofs and if you love them then HOORAY! You're done. You approve them and continue on your merry way. But if there's anything that isn't the way you want it then you just say so! They will work with you (in an extremely expedient fashion, in my experience) until everything is exactly the way you want it. 

In my case they changed some things with the fonts so they looked better, changed up little bits of wording for etiquette's sake, and they adjusted the custom color for my mom's shower invite in a way I hadn't specified but was exactly what I wanted. Everything definitely looked better for the changes that Renata (my proof expert!) made. When reviewing there was only one small thing that I wasn't pleased with-the custom color for the font on the Thank You Cards hadn't been changed and was gold. However, pretty much as soon as I sent that feedback they apologized and revised the proof to what it should be. And they were perfect-so I accepted them and waited for them to be shipped.

--I need to add that all of Wedding Paper Divas customer service is awesome-I had a slight problem with a coupon code while checking out and, using their live chat, the problem was resolved super quickly and easily after having a quick chat with a customer service representative (who was actually knowledgeable and helpful, always a perk!)
In the end I received 3 beautiful pieces of stationary that totally represent my wedding. The quality of the paper is beautiful, the colors are vibrant, the fonts are lovely, and I am SO excited for everything that's coming up! Everyone has raved about the bridal shower invitations and I love how simple and elegant our thank you cards are. As usual, I had a flawless experience with Wedding Paper Divas and I can't wait until the next occasion comes for me to use them again!
