Stephanie did such an amazing job on invitations for my wedding. They were unlike any invitation I have ever seen and she was able to take my idea and create exactly what I wanted. She is the nicest lady and is beyond creative. She doesn't just do invitations either. She created a stunning seating board chart as well as menu cards for my wedding. I cannot speak highly enough about about her and highly recommend her!!!!
Invitations are beautiful! She is so easy to work with and results are stunning!
If you are looking for the perfect Stationary for your big day, look no further! Stephanie Somodi is the most amazing person to work with, not only is her work Unique and Exceptional, she is so easy to get in touch with! She will make whatever it is you are dreaming of come to life, with her endless designs, colors, and ideas! I am still getting compliments about my one-of-a-kind Invitations!! She also made us the most beautiful Programs, Menus and a Seating Board for our Wedding Day and they all got rave reviews from our guests! Everything got delivered to our Venue (Bonnet Island Estate), so I did not have to worry about a thing, which was so nice during those last few hectic days of planning! Your Stationary sets the tone for your entire day. There is no one better for the job than Stephanie! I will recommend her to everyone!! Happy Planning!
Stephanie creates truly stunning pieces, without a doubt. Our invitations were gorgeous and we received many compliments from our guests. However, we found Stephanie really difficult to work with and quite unprofessional - I don't think the gorgeous invitations are worth the pain! First, our invitations were really delayed - I think simply because Stephanie has a small business and doesn't effectively manage her time. Second, she didn't give us some basic professional advice, such as telling us that adding a pearl to the invitation would make it much more expensive to mail, or that certain paper materials would cause variations in color. Third, she sent us horrible programs that were completely the wrong color (all we wanted was for them to match the invitations) -- and although she fixed them, I find it difficult that she made such a mistake to begin with (isn't your whole job to provide things that match each other?). All of this doesn't deserve the rating I'm giving, however. The rating comes from the fact that she was very unprofessional with me and my mom - snapping at us via email, dodging our phone calls, and generally acting like she didn't run a business that she wanted to be successful. I would highly encourage any potential buyers to look elsewhere -- the gorgeous end result is not, NOT worth the pain of engaging with this vendor.
Your Paper goods for your wedding reflects you!Reviewed on 10/19/2015 jeannine d
I cannot tell you how many people raved about the different paper goods we used for my daughter's wedding! Even I was blown away when I saw them on the tables and displayed around the ballroom! Stephanie Somodi was recommended to me by the florist we were using! When I first met with her I was struck by her professional persona mixed with friendly warmth! I was shown many examples of each category I was looking for - and was convinced on that day that she was exactly what we were looking for! The quality of the paper, and ribbons used, were the best available - the colors were perfect! If you chose Stephanie you will be one step closer to the perfect wedding!
Stephanie Somodi was an absolute joy to work for during our September 2015 wedding. I really can't say enough about how professional and down to earth she is. We used many of her unlimited services for our invitations, reception menus, table assignments, table numbers, and ceremony programs. Stephanie has an extreme talent working with stationary!! After we worked together on the invitations Stephanie really understood the look and feel that we wanted for our wedding and ran with our ideas. It was wonderful to work with someone who we felt we could say we wanted something different and she wasn't afraid to do something unique while also guiding us with her experience of what looks good. Our guests were blown away with her beautiful work and we received many compliments. Stephanie also came on the day of our wedding to set everything up and ensure it was perfect!
Very responsive, quick turnaround, beautiful designReviewed on 9/28/2015 K
We used Stephanie to do our menu card, seating assignments board, ceremony program, and various signs around the cocktail hour. She had great ideas, worked well with our venue, and was so responsive and helpful in all of our email communications. At one point about two weeks before the wedding, she called me to be completely sure of what I wanted (we had be speaking exclusively over email until then). Anyone that decides to use her will be very pleased with her work.
Stephanie is simply amazing! I had searched high and low for wedding invitations that caught my eye (for what felt like forever). Once I saw Stephanie's work displayed at the Ashford- that was it! I had never seen anything like it before. Her work is stunning and unique. The amount of detail she puts into every facet of her work is incredible. You can tell that she truly loves what she does. Stephanie was a pleasure to work with; she always responded promptly to my emails and any other questions I had along the way. Using her creative eye, she helps you to create the invitation you imagined. Once you meet her, she feels like a friend you've had forever. We are so thrilled with the way our invitations, (programs, menus, and everything else!) came out. If you decide to work with Stephanie, I promise you will not be disappointed! Thank you for all you do, Stephanie!
People are still talking...Reviewed on 8/09/2015
Stephanie Somodi is truly an artist! She created the most beautiful and memorable invitations and paper goods package for us. EVERYONE commented on her beautiful pieces - men, women, staff at the hotel and venue, minister, florist, DJ, photographer, etc. She took our theme and carried it across the save the date, invitations, program, menu, seating chart - even to the label on the wedding favors and thank you's after our day. In an age when people are too busy to RSVP, her invitations were so beautiful that people called and emailed to say how wonderful they were too! She is a joy to work with and literally made our day more beautiful for everyone :D

Fabulous InvitationsReviewed on 10/27/2014
Our invitations were in a silk gift box with a rhinestone clasp; absolutely beautiful! All guests commented on the presentation. Not only did I have Stephanie create the invitations; she also made our Save the Date cards; Thank you cards, Seating Chart; Table numbers and provided beautiful easels. Everything she created for us had crystals placed on them! Outstanding! I was able to go to her home and pick out what I wanted and pick up everything when it was done. Stephanie is a wonderful person and I would highly recommend her!

InvitationsReviewed on 10/14/2014 Ashley R
Stephanie's work is just amazing. When we sat down and met for our first meeting she knew exactly the feeling I was envisioning inside my head. The most important thing to me was how response-full Stephanie was, immediately answering emails or phone calls and had the proofs to me quick. The invitations came out even more beautiful than I had imagined, she has truly tasteful style. I recieved MANY compliments of how beautiful and elegant my invitations were, even down to the response envelopes! I would recommend Stephanie 100 times over!

Stephanie truly has serious talent, and she is such a sweetheart too. I tell all my newly engaged friends about her.

Great Handmade ProductsReviewed on 10/10/2014 Jennifer E
We used Stephanie for our invitations, menus, table cards, and place cards. Everything is custom made by hand. She was a pleasure to work with and her prices are very reasonable. Both her designs and customer service were excellent. We received countless compliments about how our “invitations are the most beautiful I have ever seen.” When you sit down with Stephanie, she has countless samples to look at. She worked with us to pick different parts of various samples to create a custom, one of a kind look for our invitations. She responds promptly to all questions. Stephanie was very accommodating when we had to change our seating arrangements last minute because people told us last minute that they were no longer coming to our wedding. She had new place cards made in less than a week. We highly recommend Stephanie Somodi for your wedding.
If you are looking for magnificent invitations...Reviewed on 8/22/2014 jenna g
I had Stephanie Somodi make my save the dates and wedding invitations. I thought they were stunning. After we sent them out, the feedback we got from friends and family was even better than I expected! I have not received so many compliments on any other piece of my wedding. I believe that details will make or break someone's opinion at a wedding. Stephanie has that same vision. Her work is truly beautiful. The theme I was going for was elegant and classy and she nailed it! I highly recommend her because of her work and friendly personality. After we got received so many compliments about the invitations I went back to her for programs, table numbers, and place cards. I believe that her products are going to make my wedding exactly the way I want it!
Love! Love! Love! My invitations!! :)Reviewed on 6/30/2014
I absolutely loved her!! Meeting with Stephanie Somodi "Designing the Most Inviting Day" was absolutely awesome! She is funny, enthusiastic and very helpful. She helped me pick out our perfect invitations and helped me stick to my budget :) Her work is hands-down flawless and I am so happy we made the trip to meet with her. I am extremely picky. My fiancé and I have literally looked at thousands of invitations and we really were having a rough time finding "the one" that we both liked that was in our budget. Stephanie was the answer to ALL of our last minute issues! She does everything from invitations to day of rentals, and it is all beautiful! She took the time to meet with us and go through all of our color options, types of papers, glitter, foils and embellishments. She is extremely professional, very knowledgeable and at the same time down to earth. I felt very comfortable and never once was I overwhelmed. I felt like I was talking to one of my closest friends! I HIGHLY recommend her, she is wonderful and I just cant say enough about her work. It is beautiful and intricate, you can tell she puts a lot of time into each and every detail. Meeting with her has been the most enjoyable part of my wedding planning experience, seriously. She has lifetime customers here!!
Invitations set the tone of the weddingReviewed on 3/03/2014 Michelle D
I had a very clear vision of what I was looking for when it came to our wedding invitations and accompanying escort cards and wedding program. Something very clean and classic and traditional with a touch of lace and pearl. Stephanie understood our vision and through our meetings together we put together the final look and it was simply stunning. We received dozens of calls and notes about how gorgeous our invitations are and the beauty of them really set the tone for the entire wedding. Through the invitation,course guests were able to see that they were headed to a very elegant wedding. Stephanie then carried our theme through the escort cards where we incorporated vintage buttons and pins and everything was simply beautiful. Stephanie did an incredible job and I couldn't have enjoyed working with her more. She has vision and creativity not to mention a fabulous personality.
