Meet Lavender Paperie

We recently had the pleasure to do a Q&A with Lavender Paperie. Here’s what they had to say!

Tell us a little about your business!

Lavender Paperie is a wedding stationery company based out of Southern California. We specialize in handmade wedding invitations primarily using real lace and embellishments.  We just recently expanded our line with laser cut designs and designs using handmade paper from India!

How you got started and why?

Lavender Paperie was established in 2010 when my career path took a turn. As a former teacher who was let go do to budget cuts, I began a quest to follow my dream of owning my own business. I am proud to say after much love and determination my dream has come true with Lavender Paperie!

How long have you been doing this?

For 5 years

What makes your invitations unique?

We strive in creating one of a kind handmade lace wedding invitations that you can’t find anywhere else.

Do you offer other paper products besides invitations?

Yes, we offer day of stationery, menu cards, programs, table numbers, placecards, thank you cards, etc.

What’re the average costs for your wedding invitations?

Our base invitation begins at $4.00 for invite only and can go up to $9 or $10 depending on embellishments, insert cards, etc.

What advice do you have for couples when buying wedding invitations?

Make sure to shop early, this way you are not limited to only a few choices.  Most small businesses have a turnaround time of 6 to 8 weeks so if you are running late you may not be able to purchase that one invitation you love.

What’s the best way for couples to contact you?


We believe communication is key and do our best to respond back to inquiries within the same day!!

Happy Anniversary!

Today is my anniversary – 8 years! It is also the anniversary of two wonderful couples we worked with three years ago:
