  • When I got the invitation for my best friend's wedding a year ago, I immediately commented on how beautiful and unique they were. She told me about Laura's Etsy shop - and it was an easy choice to go with Laura for my own invitations! We decided on the Astoria wedding invite suite, which perfectly captures our modern but elegant style. Laura was a pleasure to work with and the process of ordering and proofing the invitations was very easy. Best of all, the quality for the price is unbeatable!

  • I cannot begin to tell you how many hours I spent searching for the perfect save the dates, invitations, and thank you cards, and I was beyond thrilled when I found By Invitation Only on Etsy. I ordered the Miranda II Vintage Luggage Tag Invitation Suite and the accompanying save the date and thank you cards. Laura was WONDERFUL to work with, very accommodating, and quick to respond on all inquiries. What I ordered through her would have easily cost double or triple at most of the other places I looked at, and the quality was very impressive. A lot of people were shocked to learn I used an Etsy shop as they looked so professionally done (actually, they turned out better than a lot of the samples I got from Zazzle and those type of sites). We received a TON of compliments on everything, and several people said they were the best invitations that they have received as a guest. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  • Invitations are tricky... they are your wedding's "first impression" but they are also thrown away by most guests. With that said, picking them out can be an emotional rollercoaster! It was a pleasure working with Laura. The initial order form she sent me was a bit daunting due to the customizability of her products, but she was there to step me through the whole process. I chose to purchase digital calligraphy for outer envelope return address and guest address, inner envelope guest names, and RSVP envelope address. It was well worth the price. In the end, we were able to stay way below my budget and I received so many compliments on our suite!

  • My husband found Laura's Etsy page (lvandy27) when Googling for invitations in our wedding colors and when he showed me the picture of the invitations he came across, I fell in love. I contacted her via her Etsy page and we immediately got to work. She always responded quickly to my emails and worked with me no matter what I asked for. There were even a couple of times when we wanted to add additional guests after our first round of invitations had been mailed out and I just emailed her with the quantity and the names and addresses and she took care of it with no problem. We used her for our invitation suites and digital calligraphy and my only regret was not using her for more items. My husband and I both work overseas and we didn't really start planning our January wedding until the previous August so we were very short on time when it came to ordering additional items. I really wanted to have her do menus and food labels, rehearsal dinner invitations, program covers, etc., but we we... Read more

  • I found Laura on Etsy and from the moment I ordered a sample, I knew she would be the one designing our invites. Throughout the entire process she was professional, responsive, and informative. She made what can be a very detailed process very simple. Her products are high quality at a reasonable price. There were 2 minor printing errors with items I recieved; she rectified the problem immediately and sent out the new product the next day. We used her designs for our invitations suites, mad-lib menus, place cards, table numbers, and she even made customs pieces for us - favor stickers and welcome box stickers. The mad-lib menus were so original and a keepsake we have from all of our guests! It was wonderful to be able to extend her designs thoughout our wedding. Our wedding would not have been as beautiful had it not been for Laura! Highly recommend!!

  • I loved my invitations! I found By Invitation Only on Etsy (Lvandy27), and I ordered 3 sample invitations. They were beautiful quality and different from what I had been seeing on other sites and in stores. I ended up ordering my wedding invitations and thank you cards through Laura. She was very helpful throughout each step of the process, and she applied my feedback to create beautiful digital proofs before printing. I would highly recommend this company to brides looking for elegant and unique invitations!

  • Laura was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the very beginning she was incredibly responsive and open to making our invitation suite unique and very "us". I was impressed with the creativity of her designs, the quality of the materials she used, and the speediness of getting them from proof to reality. I will definitely work with Laura again in the future and will be recommending her work to others.

  • Laura did a wonderful job with our invitations. The groom and I couldn't have been happier! She was prompt & accommodating. Everyone that received our invitation loved how unique & elegant it was. We were so happy with the invitation suite, that we had matching cards made for the reception. I would recommend her to anyone that wanted a unique & beautiful wedding invitation. Great value too!

  • I used Laura for my entire suite.... From Invitation to menus, to place cards, to table numbers to church programs. And everything was BEAUTIFUL and very resonably priced. I found her on Etsy (Lvandy27) and I knew immediately I wanted to work with her. Her suites are gorgeous. My husband has very plain and simple taste, whereas I like a more fancy and oppulant look...so Laura worked with us to find a design that we both liked. On my response cards, I kept getting little notes where people said "beautiful invites" and my guests loved them. Laura was very easy to work with, extremely professional, and mostly very talented

  • Laura was amazing and so easy to work with. She took the pain out of the invitation process! At the last minute we decided to do the digital calligraphy on the envelopes...an it literally saved the day! I was 5 cents short on postage on all the invites, and my postal delivery person left all of my gorgeous invites in an open container on my front stoop...in the snow and rain...for 3 days...over the Christmas holiday. Imagine my grief when I arrived back home from visiting relatives out of state to discover a soggy mess. BUT THE INVITES WERE IN NEARLY PERFECT CONDITION!! The materials Laura used are so high quality, that they all held up, and more importantly dried out. And because I went with her digital calligraphy, rather than doing calligraphy by hand as I had originally planned, all of the addresses on the envelopes were perfectly legible! Calligraphy ink would have run, and I would have had to start from scratch. I still can not believe that something so horrible could turn out so... Read more

  • Laura was amazing to work with. She was patient & communication was swift. She made 75 of them in 1 week & they were in my hand 4 days later. The invites were more than spectacular, they were beautiful... I still get compliments on them. I can't wait to work with her again!

  • I absolutely love my invitations. The VALUE of her service/products is unbeatable. Our budget for 150 invitations was $500. I looked and looked, and it was really hard to find something nice/quality for under $800. I cam across Laura's Etsy shop and was so surprised to see what all she includes in her invitation suites for such a reasonable price! We ordered a sample and were so impressed with the quality of paper - it is not that thin cheapy paper that bends easily. She was very quick to respond and provide proofs to my exact specifications. I love our invitations and cannot wait to send them out!
