    Cannot wait for friends and family to see the invites?

    Absolutely in love with the first part of my order.
    It all came packaged super professional and cute too. I can’t wait to put everything together and get things sent out!
    Gillian is really great at responding quickly and kindly. Adjusting to any changes or requests I made.
    Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to take their wedding stationary to the next level, for a very reasonable price ??

    Fantastic quality with friendly, fast service


    Bee Invited provides a really excellent service. Through out the duration of our order, info gathering, correspondance,, personalisation and order conformation - Gillian was super friendly, efficient and very responsive to our messages and to any tweaks or changes we wanted to make. I would highly recommend choosing Bee Invited for your invites.

    Given the uncertainty of COVID we were concerned about how long it would take to get everything sorted and get the invites sent out to us but Gillian made everything seamless and had our invites with us within two weeks of ordering them.

    The invites themselves are really beautiful and exactly what we were looking for.

    Thanks Gillian!!

    K & R :)

    Gorgeous invitations and amazing service

    Ordering our wedding invitations has been a pleasure. Gillian is passionate about her work and caring and makes the whole experience very personal. She has regularly been in touch and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with everything. We couldn't recommend Bee Invited more. Our Copper leaf invitations are absolutely gorgeous. Everything was perfectly packed and it was a delight to open the parcel. Thank you so much again for everything and all the best for the future.

    Wow!

    i can't thank Gillian enough for our stunning wedding invitations. As we don't have a lot of time before the wedding she rushed our order through. The correspondence from her is first rate, she kept us updated on a regular basis. The quality of the invitations is outstanding and she put them together for us. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Gillian once again - you are a genius!!

    Beautiful Stationary, Amazing Service

    We wanted something classy and elegant for our wedding stationary and Bee Invited was perfect. Gillian was fantastic in every way, from creating our invitation samples to correspondence about the design and delivery. We received our 'Save the Dates' days after placing an order and could not have been more thrilled with the outcome. Thanks Gillian, we will definitely be placing the remainder of our wedding-stationary order with Bee Invited!

    Cares and goes the extra mile

    So pleased with our wedding invitations! Within 3 weeks of ordering an invitation sample we have our wedding invitations with information cards and envelopes all here and they are just perfect. Not only was the process or ordering easy, the communication throughout the process with Gillian was a great help and shows just how much she cares and goes the extra mile. Alice, Aylesbury

    Personal touch that is second to none!

    I'm not sure where to start - I can't thank Gillian enough for everything she did for our son's Rehearsal Dinner Invitations and place settings (Love Tree) in America in April and then our Scottish Reception in September where we had the beautiful Thistle Heart Invitations, place settings, table place cards and Gillian even created a beautiful unique Menu to match the table settings, ideas I'd never even thought of! I cannot thank her enough, she helped and advised me with everything, completing last minute orders before rushing off on holiday or completing orders so I could hand carry them over to the States. Your beautiful work was admired by everyone and I highly recommend and will do in the future to anyone who would like not only beautiful, unique stationery but with a personal touch that is second to none! Thank you so much Gillian you are an absolute joy to have worked with. The Fayle Family xx

    A truly friendly, professional service

    I ordered day and evening invitations from the Wild Thistle range which went perfectly with our colours and theme.  I was unsure about some of the wording but Gillian was a great help and made suggestions which we used.  A lot of our guests commented on the invitations too saying how stunning they were,  with a few saying they nearly bought reply cards as they did not want to ruin the look of their invitation.  I also wanted to order place cards and a table plan but I left it too late (despite Gillian advising me of when my order needed to be in by but I forgot).  Gillian did manage to complete our order with time to spare although it did mean a few late nights for her.  It added the finishing touches to our wedding and it meant so much that she would put all that effort in for us. A truly friendly, professional service with great advice given and we can not thank Gillian and Bee Invited enough for helping make our special day.  Thank you so much, Karen
