Kim took a design I liked from Pinterest and made it unique to my wedding. She had a wide variety of papers to choose from so I was able to tailor my design. I got tons of compliments on everything. I kept things rather simple, but she has all sorts of different options, and got everything for a reasonable price. Kim sent proofs of everything and quickly accommodated changes with ease. Financing a wedding is tough, but I am so glad I invested with Kim. It was well worth it! She deserves every 5-star rating she has!

They are the first thing that your guests really see and I think it sets the tone/expectations for your wedding day.... Read More I had been looking online for months trying to come up with ideas. Once I found a few design ideas for our fall themed October wedding, the only person/company that I could find in the Pittsburgh area that I thought could make those ideas come to life was Kimberly at Purple Wagon Designs. Her website at www.purplewagondesigns.com is extremely well laid out with several examples of her work for any occasion (weddings, baby showers, birth announcements, etc.) as well as packaging options. She can do invitations to fit into any budget. She was extremely accommodating in working around our hectic work schedules in order to do meet-ups. At the initial meeting, she took two hours to get to know us and what our vision for our wedding was and patiently answered all of our numerous questions! She was excellent at picking out different paper and color options that would work together to form our wedding invitations. From there, she was very quick to come up with design ideas, to respond to questions whether through email or by phone, and was very receptive to my feedback on the designs and any changes that I wanted made or added to the design. Another thing I loved about Kimberly is that she takes the time to customize every person’s design. When you look on her website you will see that no two designs are even remotely the same. I honestly believe that she can take anyone’s vision/theme and turn it into a reality. I never get too excited about anything, but when I saw the actual printed invitations for the first time I was floored with what she created! I could not wait for people to see them. The responses to our wedding invitations ranged from BEAUTIFUL to STUNNING. I received so many compliments. The whole wedding invitation suite turned out better than I ever thought it would when I first starting coming up with ideas. I HIGHLY recommend Kimberly to anyone looking for announcements or invitations for any occasion and will most definitely be using her for any occasion that I have in the future.
