Sofia & Andrew's Fall Wedding 2016

"When you start the search of wedding invitations, you have two options - to do something generic from a stationary store or online, or to hire a designer and spend more on your invitations than on your entire wedding. Molly is neither of those things - she is an artist! After reading Molly's reviews, I had to contact her, and when I did I got the sweetest, friendliest email back. We met with her in person to start going over some ideas, I did not know what I wanted but I knew what I didn't want and she was very receptive to that. She showed us a book of past invitations and it really seemed like her talent was endless!

The best thing about Molly is she will work with you until it's exactly what you want, she doesn't put any restrictions on things, or tell you something can't be done. She will send you mock-ups and examples until it's perfect. We ended up with a 100% unique invitation that no one will ever have, and we feel that what we paid was incredibly reasonable.

You can tells he does this because she loves it, in her office there is a chalk board of all the names of her current couples. Molly also understands that weddings are a living thing, and sometimes you have months or sometimes you have weeks to get these out the door and she is very easy to work with in terms of when your invites go to print or when you will receive them. Most of her services are a la carte, and she gives you many options so you never feel like you are choosing a package that may not fit your needs.

She is a wonderful person, very easy to talk to, to be around and was simply a joy to work with! My only regret is that my wedding is over and I don't get to continue designing with Molly! "

Our Design Process

Each One-of-a-kind design starts with original art created to reflect only YOU & your story!

1.    Please email or contact Molly directly @ (616)633-2060.  We will schedule a complimentary phone call or meeting at my studio to discuss your wedding, inspirational ideas, stationery needs, art ideas, and more.  This will allow us both to ask any questions we have of each other. It will also allow me to gather the information I will need to provide you with an estimate as well as it will give me the opportunity to share with you what it is like to design together.

2.    Upon approving your design estimate, a signed contract and a 50% deposit is required to begin the design process.

3.    We’ll create a personalized timeline that will be communicated with all parties involved outlining what to expect during our designing together.

4.    A variety of designs will be emailed to you (this process will be discussed in more detail as we are designing together) and once your final designs have been selected we’ll review your final invitation design on a variety of paper samples for selection.  We’ll make changes to your One-of-a-Kind Designs until they are exactly as you've imagined —with no limit on revisions.

5.    All materials are ordered and the invitation suite is printed. After reviewing each design, I will assemble and finalize your designs for pick up, shipping to you or mailing directly to each of your wedding guests.  Your One-of-a-Kind Fine Art Designs will be finalized and ready for mailing to you or your guest in plenty of time of prior to your wedding or special event date.

Please keep in mind:

Invitations are generally mailed 8 to 10 weeks prior to your wedding date. We encourage our clients to inquire as early as possible to ensure there is enough availability and time allowed for the creative process.

For our One-of-a-Kind Fine Art Stationery Designs our most common timeline begins 8-9 months prior to your wedding.  I’ve designed in less time, as little as 4 months prior to the wedding. Contact me, let’s talk about your timeline and let's see what we can do!

Our Exclusive MAXE Invitations Wedding Collection by Maxe Designs

Our Custom Invitation Collection created to reflect you & your story! 

Our Custom Invitation Collection created to reflect you & your story! 

I absolutely LOVE to create and am over-the-moon passionate about our One-of-a-Kind MAXE Fine Art Wedding & Stationery Designs I've created over the last 16 years.  Thanks to a great deal of inspiration, as well as another way to share my passion for loving what I do, I decided to take the additional pieces of fine art I've created and put them to use.  By turning those works of art into completely customizable invitations for happy couples and those looking to announce a special event, you'll be able to create a design that truly reflects you and your style. 

Our MAXE Invitations Collection by Maxe Designs incorporates original art designs that ready for changing, creating new designs, adding your personalized wording, your colors, and your style to each design.  This is a completely custom invitation line that will be changed to reflect you and your story.  Unlike our One-of-a-Kind Wedding & Special Event Designs, these designs are available for purchase by any of our happy couples and those celebrating a special event.    

These designs have been created with original art that was inspired by my surroundings, by sketching, by taking paint to a canvas or by an idea that popped in my mind.

The excitement and experience that happens while designing with each of my clients, for those I’ve created One-of-a-Kind Wedding Designs for, have inspired me to create a wedding collection for 2017 to compliment your beautiful wedding!  I can't wait to design with you!
