When I chose Ceci New York to do my invitations, I knew my guests were in for an unforgettable experience. From the consultation with Ceci and her team to the rounds of edits, the customer care was top notch and luxury at its finest. When my fiance and I received our sample in the mail, we cried! I never knew I would care so much about paper until I opened ours! My fiance said he wanted to frame it, that's how much he loved it (and you know guys don't care that much)! The envelope liner, bellyband, invitation suite, envelopes, and every little design touch were so carefully laid out it was perfection.
Our guests began to receive theirs in the mail and the calls and texts came in like wildfire from across the country. No one had ever seen anything like it before! My dad joked that we didn't even need to have a wedding because we had "wow'd" everyone enough with the invitations - that's how much people were in love with it!
I would highly recommend that you invest in Ceci's work for your invitations. It's a great way to introduce your guests to the aesthetic of your wedding and personality of you and your fiance. The process was so fun and the reaction of everyone who receives it will make your day over and over again!
My husband and I used CECI for our invitations suites, program cards and menus. It was really important for us to send out invitations that we could be proud of. Our project manager was Meghan and she was so wonderful! From start to finish she advised us well listening to my vision she kept our project on time and me well informed. The response to our invitations were so overwhelming; compliments would not stop coming! Our guests were blown away and it created so much excitement for our wedding day. We even had guests calling us to RSVP over the phone because they wanted to keep the entire suite. We were so honored! The program cards and menus tied in the design from our invitations and they were so beautiful! Everything was custom which made it so special for us! Heavy stock on everything; not cheap at all; just the look and feel of our stationery was so impressive that guests are still talking. We ordered more pieces than we needed for programs and menus and at the end of the event when we were gathering our things they were all gone! Our guests took them as keepsakes :)! We are so thankful that Meghan and the design team gave extra just for us. It truly was a wonderful once in a lifetime red carpet experience for us! We highly recommend CECI to couples who want to make a statement with beautiful stationery on their big day! Your invitations are the interest "arouser" for your event and the only opportunity you really have to set the tone for your big day so make it count! Thank you so much Meghan and the CECI team!! We really appreciate you!! xoxo Ele & Dan :)
We have worked with Ceci on two occasions. Both times Ceci and her associates were fantastic! They came up with incredible design ideas, executed them flawlessly and delivered them right on schedule.
We first hired Ceci to design a very special birthday invitation for my husband. It was so unique and personal - everyone loved it! After that great experience, we then hired Ceci to design our daughter's destination wedding suite which included save the dates. She helped us with the color selections and created a gorgeous watercolor which was stunningly beautiful! Ceci is simply the best!
Ceci designed a custom wedding invitation for us that is an unforgettable piece of art and we've heard from scores of guests about how it's the most incredible invitation they've ever received and how excited it made them for our wedding. Nothing could have set a better tone for our wedding day than the invitation they created.
Ceci took the way my fiance and I feel about each other and turned it into something our friends and family were able to touch and hold. Which is amazing considering I'm not artistic at all. But she took the time to get to know us and our story and was able to express all of that simply in our elegant invitation. And even our guests have been commenting on all the little details and extra touches that I wasn't sure anyone else would notice, but when something is done so well, it will shock you who will notice. Ceci also incorporated our location, our colors, and the whimsical tone we're hoping for on our wedding day. I didn't even know that was possible, but when you hire an artist instead of a printer, you get more than you could have hoped for.
Despite being unique and special and evocative of our relationship, the invitation is not ostentatious at all. It's still tasteful and fully functional as an invitation, despite also being a masterpiece made of paper. They completely understood the understated tone we wanted to achieve and were full of ideas about how to achieve that without just adding bling. Although I'm sure if you want bling, they'll give that to you.
They have a great process for designing as well. They sent us the material options quickly to see in person even though we were on the West Coast and involved us at every step so we could collaborate when appropriate. They were prompt, perfectly responsive, and if you get the chance to work with Adhari as your project manager, you should consider yourself extra lucky!
They're not cheap, but they're worth every penny. They created an invitation that will be remembered in people's minds for years to come. How many invitations can you say that about? How many invitations have you already forgotten about? If you're going to use a stock invitation, you might as well email your invites because no one will remember them. If you want something special for your wedding day, there's no one else you should hire. I can't recommend the entire team at Ceci New York enough.
Great invitations were really important to me, so I vetted several potential partners and am very happy we went with Ceci. Within minutes of submitting my inquiry, I was contacted by Kayla to discuss my invitation vision. Where other vendors told me I'd have to adjust my budget to work with them, Ceci offered creative solutions to stay within my budget parameters. The service has been excellent and I could not be happier that we chose to work with Ceci!
Being a Ceci Bride was truly the best decision I made in the entire wedding planning process! And certainly the most fun!
My fiancé and I chose to be married on the South Coast of Sri Lanka and my vision was to incorporate the colonial glamour and historic richness of Galle Fort with the casual vibe of the Sri Lankan tropics.
Keeping in mind that Sri Lanka was going to be hot and steamy at this time of year (just prior to the wet season), and that our guests were travelling from Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Singapore and the UK, we wanted our wedding to be fun and relaxed but still have a strong sense of occasion.
I was having difficulty bringing my ideas of glamour in the tropics to life, but when I collaborated with the Ceci team, they knew exactly how to translate my ideas into beautiful invitations and accessories. The invitation suite worked beautifully to give our guests an insight into our occasion before the day, and the style of the accessories added a more formal touch to an otherwise relaxed, fun, beach wedding.
Ceci and her team, particularly Meghan, were the ultimate professionals with a level of detail and personalised service that made them an absolute dream to work with, even from the other side of the world in Dubai.
The fact that I was more excited about receiving colour samples and design ideas from Ceci New York than I was about choosing my wedding gown, or any other part of the planning is testament to this.
I would highly recommend Ceci New York to any bride - the outstanding service and exceptional quality of their product makes them truly peerless in their category.

I am currently working with Ceci and staff on invitations for my upcoming wedding in November. I have been overwhelmed with outstanding inspiration and creativity by Ceci and staff. In my initial consultation, Kayla was very attentive to my desires and inspiration for my wedding. She was detailed and enthusiastic and made me feel like she really knew what I was looking for.
Throughout the beginning process I have been extremely pleased with the staff's attentiveness, patience and creative talent. Ceci's first round design floored me and I felt that my needs were being heard and expressed beautifully through their designs. I am excited to see the end product and appreciate Ceci and staff for their hard work and talent !
After meeting with some other companies, my fiance and I chose Ceci for our invitations and we could not have made a better choice!
We knew we didn't want the same old boring invitation we had seen so many times and Ceci was the right place for unique, beautiful designs.
We just got our last RSVP back and our guests all loved the invites.
Ceci is alittle more pricey than some of the other companies but the product is outstanding.
I would definitely recommend Ceci to other brides!
We used Ceci for our Save the Dates and had a wonderful experience. They have a wide variety of unique patterns and the NYC skyline print was the perfect choice for our Manhattan wedding. The staff was nothing but pleasant to work with... Our order was packaged beautifully and was ready exactly when it was promised.
I would highly recommend Ceci's services.
If you want the best quality and design of formal invitation, Ceci is definitely the place for you. They are knowledgable in invitation etiquette and work with customizing your designs. Whatever you decide the end product will be amazing. There is a price attached to this level of quality but it's definitely worth it.
For our wedding my husband and I wanted a Ketubah that was a little more unique than what you typically see and Ceci New York definitely exceeded our expectations! The staff was amazing & listened to everything we wanted and answered all of our questions. We could not be happier with the end result which is prominently displayed in our home as one of our most cherished pieces of art.
If you are looking for something truly unique and special I would absolutely go see the wonderful people at Ceci New York!
i have only the best things to say about my ceci new york experience and invitation suite. from my initial meeting to see options, to the final product, the entire team treated me like a princess. each person was kind, patient, attentive, responsive, and creative. everybody was on top of their game, which meant the world me. the end result was delivered right on time (even with thanksgiving, christmas, and new years closing their office), and utterly dazzling---three months after our wedding, guests continue talking about our show-stopping invitations. i have nothing but praise for the ceci team, and would recommend them to anyone who is happy to pay for the ultimate wedding invitation suite and the white-glove experience getting it! (one star off for value because it is indeed expensive.)
Working with the Ceci New York team for my wedding was probably one of the easiest experiences of the whole process. They were friendly, organized, helpful and 100% on their game from start to finish. From the account team to the designers to Ceci Johnson herself, it was a hands down pleasurable process. Literally any design element I wanted to add, they could do. Any deadline I needed, they made. I had no idea that the invitations were going to be my favorite part of the wedding process! They were a dream to work with!
I can not give higher praises to Ceci and her team…I think we are still getting compliments on our inviations months after the fact. We got married in December at the Boathouse in Central Park in NYC and wanted a save the date that captured the surroundings with some whimsy while still feeling classy. Ceci came up with the most amazing scene of the park that was incredibly personalized, yet still very timeless.
Our inviations themselves were fairly tradtional but Ceci and her team helped us add some subtle creative touches that helped our invites stand apart.
Overall, amazing quality, amazing customer service and so much personal interaction. Definitley set the tone for our day, and I would recommend Ceci to any bride looking to invest a little bit extra for an outstanding end result.
Ceci Johnson and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with – plus the process was easy, streamlined and professional. The best people in the wedding industry are able to read the bride and groom and provide suggestions that align with their style. This is exactly what the Ceci New York team did for us. Our invitation suite reflected both our personalities and the overall tone we were trying to establish for the wedding. Their work is best-in-class!

Ceci New York created a spectacular invitation for my outdoor California wedding. To keep with the hacienda feel of the resort where I got married, Ceci was able to incorporate the Spanish tile into my invitation for a classic (yet unique) look. It was a joy working with her and the team, and I would gladly recommend this company to anyone!
My experience with Ceci and team was the most magical and beautiful process. Ceci’s creative ideas and accessories were exactly what I wanted and completed the full design of my wedding. When I went to meet her for the first time I immediately felt as though she knew exactly what I wanted and that we were both on the same page. She tied in everything I described my wedding décor to look like and even brought the venue feeling into the design. The process of working with Ceci and team was so seamless and stress-free from start to finish and I really feel it can be credited to the team being exactly on target in what I had envisioned from the first time we met. I was so lucky to work with such a talented and creative team!
We used Ceci for both our save the dates and invitations. Ceci had come highly recommended by a friend and they did not disappoint. The save the dates and invitations were beautiful and we received so many compliments from our guests! Also, the customer service was excellent and everyone we worked with was professional, well organized and extremely responsive. I highly recommend Ceci to other brides - they were a pleasure to work with.
I stumbled upon an incredible idea in a Real Simple Wedding magazine - paper plane ticket invitations, how perfect for our destination wedding! That's how I heard about Ceci New York and we were living in Manhattan at the time, so we went in for a consultation. Kayla - an account manager walked us through the process and became our primary contact. We quickly changed our minds and decided to design a beach- / island themed series from scratch.
A couple of disappointments: We never actually interacted with Ceci herself and the exact color of the invitations looked different in every light. Because of my perfectionist tendencies and the challenge of aligning ideas with my husband, we spent hours upon hours communicating design details over countless drafts, which made the process pretty labor intensive on our end.
In the end, however, we LOVED our invitations, received many 'wows' and acknowledgements and felt taken care of by the team every step of the way at Ceci New York. I'd definitely use them again if I could afford another round of $5,000 letter-press invitations ever again in my life. (And that was the low-end of their scale for services and packages!)
Ceci New York is fab. I (unfortunately) waited until the last minute to order my name cards, table numbers, ceremony programs, etc for the wedding day...and Ceci New York managed to turn my order around in no time at all!...For a rush fee, of course. Overall it was a very easy process. Lovely people to work with. And such beautiful work! Theirgo to style is so classic and straight up gorgeous. Of course, with most things wedding and production related, you pay a hefty price for excellent work. But if invitation, table #'s and ceremony programs are important to you..you can't go wrong with Ceci New York!
