Since showing at the 2015 New York Magazine’s Annual Wedding Event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in April, our high-end invitations department, Village Invites, has been mentioned in several wedding features that can be seen in magazines and blogs such as, Brides, Carats & Cake, and Dauphine Press. Appearing regularly in features on WellWed, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Wire, Racked NY, and New York Magazine (just to name a few), it’s clear that the experts that make up Village Invites know the exact formula to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind invitations and printed pieces for weddings and events. Therefore, we thought they more than deserved a few moments of bragging.
What’s one reason that we feel it’s important to give Village Invites the spotlight today? “Your invitation is the first experiential moment for your guests (for any event). Therefore, it’s important that it is true to your style and your relationship,” says Simone Takacs, Senior Design Consultant for Village Invites. In order to achieve this, you need to work with creatives who understand the importance of every minute detail that goes into a wedding or an event, and have the ability to make these important pieces unique and true to your style. Village Invites is where you will find these highly creative individuals.
