- Premium Wedding Invitations
Christa Alexandra specializes in fine custom wedding invitations and wedding stationery that coordinate with your color palette and theme. These one-of-a-kind, couture wedding invitations will set the tone long before the guests arrive. We love to hear all the special details that make you both who you are, what brought you together and what elements you are carrying through to your wedding. Professionally designed invitations differ from other wedding invitations because you will work one-on-one with a graphic designer. No matter your style – elegant, rustic, vintage, romantic, fancy, modern, simple or preppy – we can work with you to create designer wedding invitations that will truly impress your guests.

- How it Works
» After you submit the Custom Invitation Inquiry (form shown above), you will receive a quote based on your information and a general price list; upon your approval of quote, you will schedule time to discuss your wants and expectations via phone or in person
» Once you feel comfortable moving forward, Christa begin the design process which requires a deposit of 50% of the final cost (to be credited towards the final balance)
» Next, Christa will send through a general schedule outlining what you should be expecting to review over the coming months
» Designing begins, a digital proof (mockup of what it will look like) is sent to you and samples of paper are mailed via the post
» Upon your approval, we modify and then print accordingly
» Finally, your invitation package arrives in the mail approximately two weeks before you need to send it out, so you have 10-15 days to address and stamp. Generally invitations are sent out 2 months before the wedding date.
- Custom Pricing
Given the differing customization options, prices will range. To help get a better idea, we can give you a starting price point for both typical digital flat printing as well as letterpress printing.
For a quantity of 100 custom wedding invitations, 2 piece invitation suite (invitation and RSVP, envelopes included):
» Digital Flat Printing :: starting at $990
» Letterpress (1-color) :: starting at $1500
Additional materials such as seating cards, weekend itineraries and thank you notes can be designed with the same theme as the invitation suite for an additional cost but pricing varies depending upon your needs.
- What We Do
Over the course of a few months, Christa, of Christa Alexandra Designs, will work with you every step of the way—from deciding wedding invitation wording, which paper and envelopes to choose, creating a timeline for the stationery, to preparing multiple invitation mockups. Many brides feel that after working through the invitations with Christa, they are more at ease and prepared for the wedding because all those significant decisions need to be made when designing the invites. We promise to find a creative and beautiful way to incorporate your theme and vision into an invitation suite that you will hold on to long after the day has passed.

A quick note to say thank you, as genuinely as I possibly can ,and to tell those of you looking for invitations to hire Christa. I really enjoyed working with her on the invitations. I had a look and feel in mind, and Christa made that happen due to her willingness to take every piece of feedback and incorporate it into the design, without ever making me feel overwhelmed or like a nag. When I wanted to get a custom embosser to do the return address, she coordinated it for us and got everything put together for us. Everything came out perfectly; we had a million complements on our invitations, seating chart, and table numbers.” - Pauline in Rochester, MN | Wedding: 10/05/2013
“I was extremely pleased with all of my wedding stationary provided by Christa Alexandra Designs. I worked with Christa long distance (her in Vermont, me in NY) and did all of our communication through email and over the phone, and everything came out PERFECT. Christa asked me tons of questions about my style and what I was looking for and came up with gorgeous designs for my Save-the-Dates, invitations, table number cards and ceremony cards, and would send them to me through e-mail. I would tell her what I liked and what I wanted changed and we worked together throughout the whole process. It felt really amazing to see how she took my ideas and created something so beautiful (which I never could have done on my own or with anyone else). I know I could not have gotten the same results if I had done what I was originally planning, which was just to find ones I liked online from a cheap web site and order them. Christa worked with me to keep the cost as low as possible, and even went to great efforts sending me tutorials so that I could DIY a few things to save. I highly recommend using her!” - Sasha in New York, NY | Wedding: 07/13/2013
“I was lucky enough to work with Christa to design my beautiful wedding invitation suite as well as some day of materials and thank you notes. Christa is absolutely wonderful to work with and she is very talented. From the beginning, I knew I had made the right choice in deciding to work with her! I had looked at local shops as well as some of the online sites for my wedding invitations and I had a really hard time finding something that pulled all my ideas together and to blend all my wedding elements together to convey what my wedding was in my invitation. After just a short phone conversation with Christa, I had a number of mock-ups for invitations. She was very patient as I requested small changes and blending of her different mock-ups, until we came to the perfect one. She even created some fun wording for our info card and our RSVP card – not to mention the details (band and envelope liner) that she suggested really helped to bring everything together for me. I also had her design our favor cards, menus, and thank you notes. I got so many comments on Christa’s work – even from my calligrapher who said “it was the most beautiful invitation suite” she had seen! As a note, custom invitations are more expensive than if you were to use a big company but in my opinion you definitely get a deal by working with Christa – a beautiful product you will cherish long after your wedding is over! Thank you Christa for making the most beautiful wedding invitation suite and other wedding materials!” - Sara in Glastonbury, MA | Wedding: 06/28/2013
“ Christa Alexandra was one of the best decisions that I made regarding my wedding. She was so professional and timely and worked with me on my budget. She also produced the most amazing, customized invitations that I could dream of! I want to keep using her for everything! I would 100% recommend doing business with her. Simply amazing (and it doesn’t hurt that I still get comments on the beauty of her work). ” – Colleen M. in Albany, NY | Wedding: 04/20/2012
“ Christa’s aesthetic matched mine perfectly and she helped me hone in on ideas for our invitation suite as soon as we started working together. Together, we came up with the perfect rustic but elegant invitations, and many of our guests commented on how beautiful they were. Additionally, Christa created our day-of materials to tie in with our invitations, and she was game for anything. I’m a teacher and wanted to incorporate my student’s interpretation of Pete and I getting married, so Christa found a way to use that image for our welcome box tags. We also had our friend make cookies for favors, and Christa designed adorable stickers to seal the cookie bags- again, she will do anything and everything! From our invitations to all of our day-of materials, Christa did an amazing job at creating gorgeous yet highly personalized materials. Most importantly, she is incredibly sweet and dealt with my indecision with grace and professionalism. I changed my mind on her so many times (often, very last minute), and she was always understanding and calming. Thank you Christa!” - Laura P. in Cambridge, MA | Wedding: 06/16/2012
“ We were having the hardest time finding our perfect wedding paper. It ended up being the most difficult part of the planning process for us. I looked through books and books of invitations and met with different invitation designers in NYC. No one could help me find something that seemed to fit the wedding weekend we were planning. Then, my awesome wedding planner Becca Newton, introduced me to Christa. I looked at her website and chatted with her on the phone and I knew she was the right person. I’m not creative at all so it was hard for me to even articulate exactly what I wanted. Somehow Christa knew all the right questions to ask and very quickly after that conversation she presented me with these stunning invitations. They are the perfect blend of romantic, rustic, refined, and sweet that we wanted. Also I really wanted to put everything in a little folder so that it would be easy for the guests to have everything in one place since it is a destination wedding. Christa even managed to make that look amazing! Working with Christa has really been a dream, she is so easy to communicate with and is eager to make the product exactly what you want. It’s so great to work with people who obviously love what they do. Thank you!” - Laura G. in New York, NY | Wedding: 09/24/2011
