Arguably one of the most stressful aspects to planning a wedding is selecting the perfect invitations and post-ceremony thank you cards. The stationery you pick plays a major role in advising your guests on the type of event you're throwing (fancy wedding=fancy invites) and should reflect your taste and set the tone for the whole shebang.

LA is blessed plenty of fabulous paper goods boutiques with gorgeous designs to help make your day as perfect as it can be, and ensures that your invites will say as much about your wedding as the actual event. From luxury letterpressers Sugar Paper to family-owned stationer An Open Invitation, we've rounded up 10 local options for customized invitations, big day tabletop accessories, and more.

Sugar Paper

This high-end letterpress stationery company, known for its tasteful design aesthetic and exceptional attention to detail (famous for being collab-happy) also offers personalized invitations with custom envelopes and hand-lettered calligraphy for your wedding. The process takes approximately four to six weeks and full wedding suites (invites, reply cards, and envelopes) are printed on extra-thick paper and include hand-painted, metallic gold accents. Pricing ranges from $1137 to $3050, depending on the number of colors, invite size, and the amount you order.

This Beverly Grove stationer is also quite green: meaning he'll plant a sapling with non-profit org American Forests for every custom order placed. Wright and team offer a full range of services, from event invitation suites, die-cutting, embossing, engraving, professional calligraphy, foil stamping, and more. It's definitely worth making an appointment with Jonathan to go visit his custom studio and get his advice on putting your personal touch on invitations, reminder cards, and follow up thank you notes.

Color & Creation

Established in 2001, this paper boutique specializes in custom designs for all print materials including flyers, business cards, catalogs and wedding stationery. Every step of production is handled in house, and they work incredibly hard to bring attention to the lost art of the printed invite, noting that "there is something just personal and special about printed material and we strive to bring awareness to the importance of this art form."

Underwood Letterpress

Touted by Martha Stewart, this printing press creates customized wedding invitations and social stationery to fit your budget and your big day needs. Their unique lettering style and gorgeous paper is very Cali-cool and perfect for the LA bride looking for something a bit more unusual and unique.
