THE NEW HOME OF GATHERIE CREATIVE

It’s here! The new, rebranded home of Gatherie Creative. We’ve had the wonderful opportunity of building this incredible business together and we have both found the last two years to be transformative. With every new season comes new perspective, and we have felt the pull of change in our business journey together.

After months of thoughtful preparation, we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out and more excited to share it with you all. Our new aesthetic is simple, wistful, organic, artistic, minimal, and all together dreamy.

So go right ahead and explore our new website, but most importantly, make sure you subscribe to receive updates from us. We promise to send you lovely things every once in awhile!

THE PROCESS BEHIND YOUR WEDDING STATIONERY
process_advice-01.png

As fellow bride-to-be's we're very familiar with the confusing processes that go into working with each vendor. It's easy to get overwhelmed with multiple contracts, due dates, meetings, and planning details to take care of, but oh boy do we have news for you! We're here to ease your mind and explain how everything works around here so you don't have to worry a bit and you can enjoy your little love-bubble with your fiancé! As our third part of this Wedding Stationery Crash Course, we're going to dive in and tell you about our creative process so that you're never in the dark!

MEETING

First things first, we like to meet you! We usually meet in a coffee shop if you're local (our recent go-to is the newly established Horizon Line Coffee) or if you're located anywhere else in this big ole' world, we'd love to chat with you over Facetime! We're going to want to know all of the details from how you first met to engagement and all of the pretty wedding plans, but this is a very important part of our process! We need to get to know you and your love to the fullest extent to really understand what you're looking for and create beautiful, unique designs that reflect you! Of course we'll collect the fundamental details as well such as guest count, wedding & ceremony location, and your budget. (but we'll get to that later!)

ESTIMATE

After gathering all of these details about you we'll put together an estimate within a week's time of our meeting. We try our best to fit every budget and we always have tricks up our sleeves to save you money while not giving up quality or style!

GATHERING

Once we have received your written approval of our estimate and contract, as well as a 50% deposit we will begin work on gathering elements of your wedding style and putting them into a style board! This process can take up to two weeks. We will then send you this mood board to review and make sure we're on the same page.

DESIGNING

After the mood board is approved we'll officially begin designing your wedding suite! We will then send you up to 3 proofs where you will be asked to approve all designs and check over all wording, grammar, punctuation, and spelling. This entire process can take up to a month.

PRODUCTION

Before sending your suite to print we will ask for the remaining balance to be paid in full. The production process can take up to 3 weeks and depending on if we are hand-addressing or assembling any of your pieces, it could take longer. We will then hand-deliver or ship your wedding pieces to you and anxiously await your wedding day to see our handiwork in action!

Our goal is to be as helpful as possible in this stressful, yet exciting time in your life! If you have any further questions or if you're ready to schedule a meeting with us, shoot us an email at hello@gatheriecreative.com! We hope to help you create the wedding of your dreams!

gATH·ER·IE

The great adventure of becoming a business includes a few hurdles. One huge struggle for us was the quest to find the perfect name. The question of how we came up with our name is asked again and again, and that's when we decided we'd put it out there as public knowledge for all who are curious as to how we came up with the name "Gatherie Creative Company".

It all started during our month long search. We would find something we loved and that we thought was so creative that it can't already exist, but time and time again we were wrong. It was getting to the point that we were out of ideas and almost picked something random with no meaning behind it just to put the naming process behind us and move on. 

That's when we came across the word "gather". It felt like a weight off our shoulders when we both loved the word. It actually has a double meaning for us, one being that we gather elements of our clients' personalities and styles, and the other being the fact that a large portion of our business is creating designs for gatherings. We wanted to make the word unique to us, therefore, we added the suffix -ie, which denotes a place set aside for a certain activity, for example an "eatery". When you combine the word "gather" with the suffix "-ie" we became a place set aside for the gathering of elements and designing for gatherings.

So there it is... short and simple and we wouldn't change it for the world. It's funny how some things come about like that, isn't it? They just somehow fall into your lap and become what you never knew you were looking for. Never in a million years would we have thought we would have a business at age 21, but it has become quite the blessing that we are eager to share with the world! Welcome to the world Gatherie Creative Co!
