Adrienne was simply amazing to work with! I had a particular vision in mind when it came to our wedding invitations and Adrienne made the vision a reality and exceeded my expectations. Right from the beginning, she was a pleasure to work with - she was very responsive, quick with everything and of course one of the nicest, friendliest people not only to work with but in general.
During the first appointment, we looked through a bunch of samples and Adrienne helped me narrow it down to the few I liked best. Then we played with colors, papers, fonts, textures, even lace (a unique feature I had wanted to incorporate). She has such a keen eye for detail and knew exactly what would work and look best! Everything was so easy and smooth working with Adrienne, I don't think our invitations could have come out more perfect.
Not only was she responsive and helpful in the design process, but her turn around time and helpfulness were nothing less than the best. Throughout the entire process she made everything easy…even when we had last minute address changes or additions, Adrienne was great!
The invitations turned out absolutely perfect, better than I could have imagined. We got so so so many compliments on them, people were truly impressed! It was the perfect way to set the tone for our wedding! We couldn't be happier :) Adrienne and Admire Design LLC are 110% worth every cent! I highly recommend her to everyone I know (bride or not) and look forward to hopefully working with her again one day! Thank you times a million Adrienne! Everything was PERFECT!

Adrienne was an excellent professional to work with. My case was somehow special, I live in Connecticut but my wedding was in my home country, Venezuela. For our invitations, I looked for months for a provider in CT that best fitted the style used for wedding invitations in Venezuela. I was looking for nice quality invitations that looked very elegant, very formal, unique (for a black tie wedding), and within our budget. When I first visited Adrienne and had a look of previous invitations she had created I immediately told myself “this is it”. All her invitations were simply beautiful, no matter the style or the occasion. I just wanted her to do my invitations. When she first sent the quote, it was a little over our budget but Adrienne suggested changes that lowered the price to stay within our budget, and most importantly without compromising the quality of her work. Her invitations really look like the most expensive ones you find in store catalogs but at half the cost!
Once she started with the design, Adrienne was very easy going and patient. She took about a week to send us the first draft. Because of my job, I couldn’t get back to her with comments right away but she was very patient and worked at my pace. She always exceeded our expectations whenever we suggested an idea to include in our invitation. She would give us several options for fonts; frames, etc. so we could chose whichever we liked the most. She created a beautiful monogram with our names, which she was happy to provide in digital so I could create a cake monogram. The quality of the paper, printer, and designs she uses are excellent! Most of my invitations were in Spanish, but I had a few English-speaking guests and Adrienne kindly offered to print some of my invitations in English free of charge!
I have to say, in Venezuela the costume is to hand deliver the invitations to each of the guest’s houses. I traveled to Venezuela 2 months before the wedding to deliver them with my fiance. There was not a single person who didn’t make a comment when they opened their invitation. Everybody said words like wow! Beautiful! How elegant! And asked who had done these invitations. Even my friends and family living in the US had something to say about the invitation. I honestly felt so happy and proud of our invitations. It was a real success. I have saved a set because I am planning to frame it and keep it as a portrait in our home.

Adrienne was beyond wonderful to work with. We were able to create our own designs while Adrienne provided her professional opinion and made sure we didn't miss anything and kept good etiquette. She was able to meet deadlines on short notice and was so easy going when it came to making last minute changes with additions or name changes. I wasn't at all worried or nervous about how our invitations, escort cards, and table numbers were going to come out. After sending out our invitations.... my mother and I both received numerous phone calls and texts telling us how extravagant the invitations were. We received a ton of compliments on them. I highly recommend working with Adrienne.

We had a vintage travel theme for our wedding, and wanted the decor and wedding paper to reflect that theme. From start to finish Adrienne was amazing to work with. We live in Chicago so I only had the chance to meet with Adrienne once during the design process. Despite that she understood exactly what we were looking for. We sent her ideas for inspiration and she went above and beyond creating the most beautiful save-the-dates, invitations, and wedding day paper you could imagine. We received endless compliments on how unique and beautiful everything was. She is responsive, creative, and a dream to work with.

My husband and I were married this past August 10, 2013 on the island of Trinidad and Tobago. We used Admire Design LLC for all of our stationary needs. If you want to make a statement about your wedding this is how you do it! Our family and friends raved about our invitations created by Admire Design; they set the tone for our wedding. Our invitations were classy and unique, with a quality that is unmatched! I also had our escort cards, table numbers and programs done by Admire Design, details that many of our guests commented on. I can't say enough about this company. Adrienne Craig was professional and timely with all of my inquiries. They have an online program that lets you visualize and proofread all of your stationary before it goes to print. Admire design works with all budgets. All of our stationary created by Admire Design gave our wedding the elegant finishing touch that all brides are looking for!!

Admire Design did an amazing job for us. AD met with us in person to help us brain storm and design our invitations. Going in we had only a vague sense of what we wanted - colors and quality - and a significant challenge of including two languages. AD picked up our style sense immediately and when she sent us an electronic draft shortly thereafter we were shocked by how perfect it was! She went back and forth with us perfecting the look and feel of the invite including a last minute change to our overlay which required reprinting. Always gracious and never exasperated, AD met each challenge we presented.
AD also created our wedding day paper including programs, name cards, and specially designed reception programs.
I cannot tell you how many of our guests raved about the beautiful invitations - some even writing RSVPs in separately to save the whole invite for themselves!
We were beyond satisfied - we were amazed by Admire Design!!

Adrienne at Admire Design was amazing to work with for our wedding in Brooklyn in June, 2013. Our save the dates with an old hollywood/art deco theme turned out great, as did our gorgeous invitations. Menus and other wedding day papers were also top of the line in terms of quality. Adrienne listened to what I wanted in terms of design and made the necessary adjustments to give me exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely recommend her to any bride!

I had the pleasure of working with Adrienne of Admire Design for my wedding Save the Dates, Wedding Invitations, Shower Invitations and Wedding Day paper. Everything that Adrienne produced was absolutely beautiful and amazing! She is a great person to work with and would recommend her to anyone!

I used Admire Design for all of my wedding stationery including wedding day paper. Adrienne is a lovely person and a consummate professional! She listened closely to my ideas and was extremely flexible. Our wedding design concept was 1920'/1930's Hollywood Glamour. Adrienne found a beautiful vintage style illustration for our Save the Dates that worked perfectly. Adrienne was always willing to work within our budget and even found an alternative paper supplier for our invitations so we could have the same look for less. I highly recommend Admire Design to any brides looking for exquisite, personalized invitations and more!

Our wedding took place in my CT home town however we live in France and invited guests from over 7 countries. Adrienne handled our complicated requests with incredible professionalism and creativity. She came out with a perfect invitation, so special one of our family friends framed it as a wedding present. I highly recommend Admire Design. They are truly pieces of art.

Adrienne was beyond amazing to work with. So many other stationers were either pushy or apathetic and were inflexible with budget, colors, fonts, etc. Adrienne spent a few hours with me to come up with a very creative solution to fit my expensive taste and mid-range budget. She happily accomodated all my changes and was so fast in her responses and delivery of the paper goods. Everyone, even my finicky parents, raved about how beautiful the invites were. They looked like they cost 5 times what they did, at least. Want more proof that she's the best? Two stories: I approved a proof while in a parking lot 2 towns over, and she had my envelopes done before I got to her house, 20 minutes later! Also, envelopments discontinued the paper I fell in love with, so she reached out to them, got them to send her the pattern, and custom printed the paper. How amazing! Truly above and beyond! Stop looking around, call Admire.

We chose Admire Designs as our vendor for stationery and had such a pleasurable experience. Adrienne made such beautiful stationery. We had so many comments on our invite replies stating that our invites were the most beautiful ones people had ever seen. We were blown away with not only the final product, but her service. She is extremely reliable and does wonderful work.I will most certainly recommend her to anyone, for any occasion.
My fiance and I will most defintiely hire her again, when a special occasion comes up.

Adrienne did my wedding day papers and they were gorgeous! Adrienne was a dream to work with, I never had the opportunity to meet with her in person because I was living overseas prior to my wedding. Adrienne was able to work with me via email and send me ideas and samples, and the distance made little difference. Adrienne is very professional and very quick to respond to all of my emails.
Our wedding day papers were gorgeous and we received so many compliments! We decided to use luggage tags as favors and Adrienne was able to create inserts that fit our luggage tags perfectly!
I couldn't have asked for a better vendor! I would highly recommended Adrienne to anyone looking for paper needs!
Thanks for everything Adrienne!!

It was a pleasure working with Adrienne from Admire Design. She was patient and had some great ideas based on what my Husband and I wanted from our invitations. After a couple of revisions, she had produced EXACTLY what we wanted and they came out better than we anticipated. The wedding day paper matched our theme perfectly and we wouldn't have changed a thing.
While the price tag may seem high, Admire Design is worth every penny and you get more than what you pay for. I'm glad we spent the extra money and chose Adrienne because those invitations were beyond perfect. We are still getting compliments on them one month after the wedding.
My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Admire Design!

Admire Design was the best vendor choice I made for my wedding, hands down! Adrienne was the most professional, helpful, and attentive person to work with. Being married to an officer in the Army, I wasn't able to be in Connecticut for a lot of my wedding planning. I was only able to meet with Adrienne once, and from that first day, she was able to understand what I envisioned in my stationery. She worked within my price range, always sent proofs to make sure they were perfect, and everything was completed in a timely manner. Adrienne would send friendly emails to remind me when it was time to get started on the next phase of the stationery. She was never pushy in seeing if I was interested in additional stationery (i.e. wedding day paper). I was very last minute on getting some information to her, and she stayed up all night to complete the escort cards (don't recommend this though), all without a single complaint! I always dreaded having to talk to my wedding vendors, except for Adrienne. She was the one vendor I truly enjoyed working with. As perfect as Adrienne is, her work was just as amazing! All of my guests raved about the beauty of the stationery. Breathtaking, stunning, and gorgeous were some of the descriptive words I heard from guests about Adrienne's work. The smartest decision you will ever make in your wedding planning (or any time you need stationery) is to go with Admire Design!

The old adage is definitely true, but in this case I'd like to make an amendment. It's rare that you get a second chance to out do first impressions overtime. I worked with Adrienne on our Save the Dates and invitations at our very first meeting and I was already impressed. Then when I saw the proofs, I was even more impressed. By the time guests were getting invites in the mail they were totally blown away! Every time I thought that Adrienne had made her masterpiece, she came back with something even better for the next project. She did our save the dates, invitations and wedding day paper and each one was absolutely perfect.
Beyond her designs being beautiful, she is so easy to work with. Adrienne's work tied our whole event together from start to finish and I really felt like she was personally with us every step of the way!
I wouldn't work with anyone else.

Adrienne created my wedding invitations, wedding programs, a unique wedding itinerary card and menu cards. The experience of working with Adrienne was simply amazing! I had a complex "wedding" where we were hosting three events in three different states. I was overwhelmed and did not know how to get organized. During our first personal meeting Adrienne worked with me to organize my event invitations, took down my design ideas, and then created customized invitations that were high quality and very personalized. I got so many compliments from friends and family! During the time we were supposed to be proofing our invitations my grandmother passed away causing me to be very late in proofing our design. Adrienne was very understanding and flexible. Somehow she still managed to get us our invitations on time! Here is what is great about Admire Design & Adrienne Craig: high quality products, creative design ideas that can range from fun & whimsical to elegant & sophisticated, inviting design studio in her home, great communicator, works with proof sessions to perfect designs, provides suggestions at different price points, respects budgets and does not try to up-sell you, but will also let you splurge if you so desire! I really enjoyed my Admire Design experience and can't wait for the next time I need paper products so I can work with her again! In fact, I think I will be having her design us some thank you cards! If you are on the fence about who to select for your invitations and/or wedding day paper I highly recommend Admire Design!

Working with Adrienne at Admire Design LLC was an amazing and pleasant experience. If you are looking for a vendor you can trust, it is Adrienne, hands down. I can be a critical / picky person under certain circumstances, and of course a bride wants everything perfect on her wedding day. Adrienne is the person to work with, no matter if you know exactly what you want, or if you need some help figuring that out. You will leave with an amazing product and will be beyond satisfied! My invitations and seating chart created and provided by Adrienne were among my favorite parts of the wedding. I still have my seating chart at home, and it is beautiful. Adrienne, thank you for all of your dedication and efforts towards making all of us brides so happy! xoxo
