Kelly and Jay were chosen as the winning couple in Pear Tree Greetings' 2012 Dream Wedding Contest. As the winning couple they won $1,500 towards her dream wedding dress and custom designed wedding invitations from www.peartreegreetings.com. Follow their story as they share wedding planning highlights on our blog, Pear Salad.We have just received our custom made wedding invitations that were designed and created by Pear Tree Greetings and are so excited to share them with our family and friends!
We were overjoyed when we won the contest and realized that not only would we be able to eliminate the cost of invitations from our tight budget but they were going to be custom designed just for us! Shortly after winning the contest, we had a phone conversation with Angela from Pear Tree who has been amazing to work with throughout the entire process. We discussed what my fiancé and I were looking for in terms of our invitations and what Pear Tree had to offer. Not being a very creative person myself, Angela and the team were so helpful in offering suggestions and showing us ideas for wedding invitations that had already been done from the website.
Pear Tree helped us decide on the type of folded envelope, the invitation wording, the exact colors, designs for reception cards and wedding favor tags, and much much more. I have always wanted my response cards to be mad libs, and they were able to incorporate that in a way that I feel all of our guests will enjoy. We communicated our ideas for wedding invitations back and forth with Angela through email for a few months. She would send us pictures of the pieces of the invitations as they were finished. We really didn’t have to make many changes as the Pear Tree team listened to our wants and designed something that truly fit the look of our wedding. We never thought we would have the opportunity to have something created just for us, and this has been a great experience!
We love our wedding invitations! Thank you Pear Tree!
