BDI Loves Working with Clients

From save-the-dates and invitations, to menus, programs, table numbers and gifts—our goal is to capture the joy of life’s special moments.


It all begins with a conversation about your dreams and ideas to create a signature look for your wedding. Next we will help you choose products needed to make the day perfect. Then we will provide the BDI timeline and proposal that makes design, development and delivery enjoyable!

Brand Development

Using ideas from the BDI consultation, the initial design concepts for your wedding’s brand will begin as soon as the timeline and proposal are approved. After reviewing and revising, your chosen branding theme will be incorporated into all your celebration materials.

Product Development

Following the BDI timeline, design and layout will be created for each product. You will review and revise as needed, and with your signed approval, the artwork will be sent to press.


The BDI timeline will provide a schedule for each project’s printing and estimated arrival. Delivery of products will be set-up to work with your timeframe—before, during and after the wedding.

What our customers are saying

Beth was amazing to work with! Everything she made was so beautiful and she made the whole process easy for us. She always kept us updated and even gave us a schedule when we first met on when to start working on each piece which was a huge help as me and my fiance had no idea. She incorporated our theme beautifully in every piece! I would highly recommend her! Thank you Beth!!

What our customers are saying

Bdi was amazing to work with! I ordered my invitations, place cards, menu cards and table numbers through them. I was married October 6th, waited until the last minute. (procrastination at its finest)Beth was able to make a gorgeous invitation and get it in my hands in four weeks time. Not only did she move her schedule to get my order delivered promptly she is one, if not the kindest, sweetest vendor I worked with during wedding planning. If you or anyone you know is looking for an amazing company for their wedding paper needs. Stop and contact Beth now!! You will not regret it. Thank you so much for the hard work and everything you did to make my day possible!
