Here's what you can expect from one of our design experiences...
We love helping people. It's what makes us smile from day to day :)
There are plenty of designs to look at in our showroom and on our website, and we welcome people to come and take a look at our range. We're sure there will be something you will love!
You do not need to make an appointment to browse through our showroom (although calling ahead is advised), and there will always be an expert on hand to answer any questions.
However, if you feel you need a bit more help, our design experiences are perfect for people who have a specific idea in their head, or for people who want to sit down and go through their invitations step by step.
They are completely free of charge if you need more than 40 invitations, or you will have an order value of over £200.
If you need fewer than 40 invitations, or will have an order value of less than £200, then there is a £35 charge for your two-hour design consultation. For the kind of expert advice you will receive, this still represents exceptional value!
This investment in your wedding stationery will be payable at the time of your consultation and is in addition to any stationery ordered (even if you choose not to place an order).
So, what happens during a consultation?
Experience our showroom
When you visit our showroom, you will spend time with our expert designer, Jo. She will spend time talking to you about your event and getting to understand the kind of style you would like.
The showroom is organised into different themes and different price brackets making it as easy as humanly possible for you to make an informed choice about your wedding stationery!
We have eight main themes, and five main price brackets for invitations, although the choice doesn't end there...
Experience different material
We can show you a wealth of different available materials...card, ribbon, lace...as much bling as you can shake a stick at, and even beads and buttons if your design calls for it! Together, you will then sit down at the computer and begin to lay out your stationery by designing it on screen.
Experience expert advice
You will have direct input into your design, whilst being able to tap into expert advice. You will have access to a wide range of different imagery should your design call for it and together, you will bring your design to life.
Experience free samples
We have specialist cutting equipment and print all of our stationery onsite, so your session will conclude with a free of charge hard copy sample enabling you to see your design in real life.
Design consultations take around two-hours, including the production of your hard copy sample.

comments about our design experiences:
We cannot thank Jo enough for her patience and time with us during our consultations. Firstly for our wedding invites, followed by our On the Day stationery and finally our Thank You cards.
Both my 'husband' and I are perfectionists and after an initial three hour first consultation with lots of cutting, sticking and 'organza' we had created a day invitation we loved and a big mess of Jo's studio!
I had been in contact with two other stationery companies, but finding JMS Creative meant we were able to make completely bespoke invites, which many of our guests displayed on their fireplaces until the wedding!
After Jo's longest ever consultation we left her to design the evening invites. She took on board all our ideas and 'fussiness' and created amazing evening invites which were as stunning as the day invites.
After two shorter consultations Jo went on to create beautiful on the day stationery and fun thank u cards. I think by this point she knew us inside out and we LOVED it all.
Jo was really helpful in giving us advice and ideas for our wedding invites. We didn't have any ideas before we went so lots of decisions, but Jo made it easy. Jo is friendly and approachable and clearly knowledgeable in her field.
Our consultation was great & they were both so friendly & helpful. Our save the dates were perfect & have gone down really well with our guests. We can't wait to see our invites come to life.
Thank so much Jo for yesterday. Can't wait to get the other invites made and sent out. So excited! Such a lovely a lady.
We went today to look at design ideas for our wedding reception invitations and came away with exactly what we wanted! Will be looking at seating plan designs too! Very pleased with design and the lovely service we were provided! Would highly recommend
