Graphic Designers: Offer Brides A Wedding Package

May 6, 2010

Planning a wedding can become a full-time job for brides. It's just one decision after the next from the location, to lodging, to food, to music, all the way down to the color of the table linens and the flavor of the cake. The busy bride will be working with tons of vendors and any way to streamline the madness and save some money will be a welcome relief to her and her family.

Another key fact about weddings: There are a ton of items that need a graphic designers' magic touch. Here's a list of wedding items that are a MUST on most bride's checklists:

  • engagement announcements and invites
  • personalized stamps
  • save-the-date greeting cards
  • wedding website
  • invitations
  • reply cards
  • invitation accessories (maps, directions, itinerary)
  • bridal shower invites
  • bachelor and bachelorette party invites
  • wedding ceremony program
  • dinner seating cards
  • welcome kit cards (for destination weddings)
  • parting gift souvenier cards
  • thank-you cards

Whew! That's a lot of design deliverables! If, as a designer, you are looking to increase your freelance business and gain new clients, why not come up with a wedding design package that offers the bride a simple rate for as many as the above services as possible? Partnering with local printers, paper stores, wedding planners or wedding photographers may help you drum up more business and streamline the process for the bride even more. The benefits for the wedding party will be that they'll receive a high level of personal service and attention to detail, and save money by using one vendor for all their design and printing needs. Also, the the look and feel of all the wedding communications, from the announcements, to the website, through to the thank-you cards, will be streamlined and reflect the couple's wedding style.
