My review is long, so if you don't read it all, at least you'll see my note above that Denise and Persnickety is the way to go, but for more detail, read on. Before I get into exactly how and why Denise (as well as the rest of the staff at Persnickety) is so wonderful, let me say that I am a perfectionist, and therefore, I sometimes have difficulty finding service that meets my expectations. That said, Denise has gone MORE THAN ABOVE AND BEYOND what I could have expected in multiple areas! In less than two months from meeting Denise and Persnickety, my fiancé, future mother-in-law, and I have already had Denise work on wedding invitations, party invitations, personalized products, AND I got my veil and a wonderful barrette from Persnickety, too. Here's the whole story (so far): I found Persnickety while at one of those bridal expos. Before that, I was having the hardest time finding someone to make beautiful invitations for mine and my finance's wedding. Everyone told me that "nobody makes invitations in person anymore because everything is done online." Well, I wasn't happy about this because whenever I tried to make my invitations online, I either had to adjust the wording/format that I wanted to have a design I liked, or I had to have a design I hated in order to have the wording/format I liked. In other words, I could only pick one aspect I wanted; I couldn't have both. Therefore, when I saw Persnickety's table at the expo, I was SO RELIEVED! I had never seen so many huge binders filled with examples of people's wedding invitations! Plus, they were all different (which meant that I'd be able to customize my invitation--no more templates!)! I immediately booked an appointment. Oh, and I was also drawn to all of the gorgeous combs, clips, and accessories that were at the table, so I figured I'd check those out during my appointment with Denise, too. My first appointment was to discuss exactly what I wanted our wedding invitations to look like; right away I could tell that Denise knew her stuff! She had so many binders full of samples, and it did not take her long to help me nail down the kind of paper, colors, fonts, and style that we wanted. While Denise was quick to understand my wants, she took her time to listen and to get to know my fiancé and me (as well as my future mother-in-law and her cousin who also went with to the appointment). Our first appointment lasted about an hour and a half, and I can honestly say that we got more done in that time than I had in the month before the appointment as I tried to work on invitations on my own. We designed our invitations, response cards, separate rehearsal cards, another party invitation, and Denise even helped my future mother-in-law designed shower invitations at that time, too; she was also impressed with Denise's expertise. Not only did I get my invitations done with Persnickety, but I also purchased my veil and hair clip from the shop. I had no doubts that I'd find a hair accessory because there were so many beautiful options, but I had no idea that I'd find the veil that was perfect for me. I'd had a lot of trouble finding one at bridal chain stores and other chic boutiques, but right away Denise and one of her staff members pulled out several veils and helped me find the best one! They scrutinized photos of my dress and made several suggestions, and wouldn't you know, they found something that I love. The one I wanted didn't have a blusher, but Denise had one added to it, and it looks awesome! Oh, and the price was right, too, which was great since I, like many other brides, was not looking forward to spending hundreds of dollars on a piece of tule that I'd wear for a couple of hours. It's important to note that we've had about 4 appointments with Denise so far (plenty more to come, as we still need our programs and welcome bag notes made and printed), and between each one, Denise has been excellent when it comes to communicating. If I send her questions via email, she responds quickly. I also appreciate that if she isn't sure about something, she says so, and she checks and then gets right back to me. When there was something my future mother-in-law needed edited with her shower invitations, Denise took the time to sit down with her and figure it all out. Every time I interact with Denise and the staff at Persnickety, it is obvious that I'm being well taken care of. Going to appointments there is fun, and Denise makes you feel like an old family friend. She legitimately cares about her clients and her work that she does for them all. It helps that she's a perfectionist; if you work with her, there's NO WAY that you'd get lazy, low quality products. Denise takes the time and puts in the extra effort to make sure that everything is perfect, and if you aren't exceptionally happy with it, she makes sure to fix it fast. If you've read this much, you already know that I think Denise and the staff members at Persnickety are wonderful. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who needs wedding attire and/or any kind of printed materials for a wedding or any other event. If I could give Denise and Persnickety 1,000 stars, I would. I'm already getting other products made from her (not related to the wedding at all), and I will go to her every time I have some kind of stationary need or if I am looking for a quality fancy accessory. I'm so glad I found Denise and Persnickety at that bridal expo; I only wish I would have found her sooner! GO TO PERSNICKETY AND SEE DENISE! You won't be disappointed!
My original invitations on the day I was to pick them up--had not arrived, literally the woman told me they must have slipped through the cracks, needless to say I was 6 weeks before my wedding with no invitations until Persnickety! They LITERALLY got me my invitations overnight. They were perfect. Simple, Classy, Elegant. And the service. I was thrilled, and will use them for ALL my other paper needs--truly for the rest of my life.
Denise was very prompt with responding to phone calls and emails. She was very accommodating and worked with all of our requests, including changing the design layout of our invitations. Many guests commented on how lovely our invitations were and we couldn't be happier!
Willing to Go the Extra Mile
Denise was wonderful to work with. She listened to everything we asked and was willing to go the extra mile for us. She also made sure that we were able to work within our budget and took extra steps to help us achieve that. She dealt with my OCD-level nitpicky-ness and our invitations turned out EXACTLY how we wanted.
Persnickety promotions is always available for you when you need them. They are extremely polite and will help you to stay in the budget you are aiming for. After we ordered our invitations, we were contacted and made aware of the arrival dates. Then there was another follow up email and call to make sure we were satisfied. Knowing that you have someone to work with that cares about your needs and your requests is fantastic!
The Persnickety Bride was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had looked at other companies prior to choosing Persnickety, but there was no comparison. Denise is thoughtful, professional, and puts pride into each job that she does. Working with her has beyond exceeded my expectations and I cannot thank her enough for making my wedding invitations so special.
Denise at The Persnickety Bride was such a joy to work with! As a bride, there are so many details that can overwhelm you, but Denise made everything so easy! She was very responsive and happy to help in any way she could. Our invitations and wedding favors turned out beautifully and we have received many compliments on them already! Scott and I are so pleased that we made the decision to make The Persnickety Bride part of our wedding, and look forward to working with them in the future! Many thanks!!
Denise and her team were extremely professional, flexible, responsive, and a joy to work with. I was behind my timeline for save the dates and had been searching for a certain type of pocket invitation when I met Denise at a bridal show. She quickly followed up with appointment options. Denise took all of the stress out of this entire process. She was amazing! When we met she made sure I didn't settle for anything other than what I described I wanted. She even placed a customized order for my invitations. It didn't stop there. I had been traveling a lot for work and wanted to time the arrival of the save the dates and invitations. Again, Denise and her team came through and made sure I received the shipment, on time, in the out-of-state location I had traveled to. I could go on and on about how positive of an experience I had. Their extraordinary level of customer service and friendliness, and the quality of the finished products were well beyond what I expected. My guests are still raving about them!
Denise was wonderful to work with in selecting our wedding invitations, save the date and thank you cards. Her experience and personal service helped us pick out just the right selections we had in mind. We definitely would do business with Persnickety Bride in the future and will recommend Denise to others.
Denise was wonderful! I could not be happier with my invitations and everyone has said great things about them. Persnickety Bride was extremely helpful and I will be using them as well for other items for our wedding. I would highly recommend to anyone!
Loved the service and loved my invitations. They were a perfect representation of the wedding that I am planning.
I used The Persnickety Bride Online site and love my wedding invitations! The website was easy to navigate. Personalizing the invitations was fun as the site is user-friendly, and they offer a variety of options for colors, fonts, and spacing. I received the invitations in record time – they were shipped 6 days after I ordered them. I could not be any happier with my wedding invitations and will be using their services for any other stationary needs. Thank you!
The Best
Out of everyone we are working with for our wedding, Denise is the absolute best - hands down. She literally works 24 hours a day with a smile on her face and has the best attitude! I don't know how she has the time to be a wife and mother as well! We worked with her on our wedding invitations, save the dates, and more. She has access to a ton of things and has a great eye. Every time I e-mailed her, she always responded right away, and when she says "I'll get back to you" she never forgets. Not only was she great to work with, she becomes a great friend. She listened to me venting on a weekly basis and handled it with grace and gave such good advice. We had some good laughs together!! She always made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with - which I know is sooo far from the truth. I wish we could have hired Denise to be our wedding planner... it would have been nice to have her on our side through it all... I definitely recommend working with Denise. You will be so glad you did.
As a proud groomzilla and the fiancee of a very busy attorney, I was dreading the process of picking invitations. I imagines endless cards of lacy riduculousness, looking and smelling like an explosion at a Macy's perfume counter. Denise at the Persnickety Bride asked me pointed questions about our styles and went right to the suite that fit us best, and the results couldn't have been better. We've gotten so many compliments on our invitations, (so stylish, so classy, so elegant, so US!) that we've won the Ultimate Compliment of making other couples getting married before us SUPREMELY JEALOUS. On top of this, the service was excellent. Denise dropped what she was doing in three different states (!) to take my calls and answer every question. Use her or lose out, folks!
