Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Emily Brocklehurst and I am the Founder of Envytations. Envytations is a new UK startup which specialises in online e- invitations, designed to take the stress out of wedding & event planning. By sending professionally designed digital invitations straight to guests’ inboxes, we aim to simplify the invitation process without compromising on design or impact.

Covering all wedding events from Engagement Party, Hen Party, Save the Dates & Wedding invitations, we offer an affordable, modern day solution which takes the hassle out of wedding planning – leaving couples to spend more time & money on other elements of their big day.

To use Envytations, simply sign up, choose an existing design & customise your invite by adding details about your event. Invitations are then sent to guests via email; the invite then pops out of an animated envelope to wow your guests! Guest numbers are monitored using our clever online RSVP Tracker. The site also includes a new chatroom feature which allows guests to discuss the event.

We also provide a unique bespoke invitation service where we can customise invitations to match the clients’ wedding theme.

What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

Seeing a happy bride-to-be! We love to design bespoke invites for our clients – offering a personalised touch to match their thoughts & ideas for their big day. Wedding guests love to see something different & our service gives couples an easy way to get instant feedback & visibility, helping to minimise stress levels in the wedding planning process.

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

Listen to your own advice. Weddings come with such a wide range of options from venues to food and everyone you speak to will have an opinion on the latest idea or trend. Get the main elements booked and you can tweak & add extras as you go along – but make sure it is what you both want!

What keeps you passionate?

Being an entrepreneur is definitely a rollercoaster ride! – but having good friends & family who understand this & support you along the way has been invaluable. I think it is important to set goals on a regular basis to keep you focused on the big picture. It is easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day workload but having a step back & realising where you are going definitely keeps you passionate.

Do you like to keep up with trends? What’s your biggest trend to watch currently?

I love keeping up with trends but also like to go against the grain sometimes! There are so many new wedding based trends & ideas on Pinterest, so my advice would be to look online to get initial ideas but try to add a twist here & there to keep it unique to you.

What’s next for your business?

We are looking to partner with events planners & venues to help organise big parties & weddings.

How do we book/use your services?

Who are you and what do you do?

We are Big Day Print and we create personalised, unique and affordable wedding stationery for your big day. Our aim is to create stationery that mirrors you and your theme/colour scheme on paper. We are a new husband and wife business team based in Leeds – Frankie runs all the social media promotions and Mark is the graphic designer with 10 years worth of experience. Whatever you think of, we can transform that into a quality bespoke design and then print it and have it packaged ready for your special occasion.

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

Frankie: Trust your gut – if you are able to chat to somebody and feel comfortable, they probably understand you and your needs. Also, be open to ideas: they are the specialists and no-one wants you to have a bad day.

Mark: Ask as many questions as you can and get as much information as possible. Don’t make any rash decisions and shop around. Cheap doesn’t always mean rubbish!

What keeps you passionate?

We keep passionate by meeting new and exciting people, hearing about their wedding plans and making their day extra special by giving them something unique and personal to them. It also reminds us of how excited we were for our day

Do you like to keep up with trends? What’s your biggest trend to watch currently?

We always like to keep up with trends, and seeing what ‘the next big thing is’ in the wedding industry. Whether it’s something classical, or something modern and contemporary, we can design it and print it for you.

What’s next for your business?

We currently are building our client base, but we continually adding new and exciting products to our ever expanding website for everyone to see.

How do we book/use your services?

Once a client contacts us through our social media or website with their brief, we provide them with assistance of sizes and general ideas that we can provide. Once the client then pays for the item(s) on our website, our creative team then gets to work – we create your products in our design software to your specifications with creative flair and print know-how, so that when you get your products, they are printed and crafted perfectly. Once a design is produced, we email it out to the client, and then it’s at this point that you tell us what you want changing or tweaking. Once the design is settled, we crack on with the printing and finishing of your products and we send them out to you, using tracked delivery. Our customer notification system sends you an email when the shipment is on its way, so you can track your parcels to a 1 hour delivery slot.
