    First class!

    Absolutely delighted with all our wedding stationery from Bee Invited. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful everything was. Gillian was a pleasure to do business with and communication throughout was first class. Nothing was too much bother to her, even when on several occasions we had to change or add on items. Delivery was prompt and very well packaged and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for wedding stationery.

    Bee Invited Wedding Stationery's reply:

    Thank you Jane, it's amazing to hear you loved all your Wild Thistle wedding stationery and that your guests loved it too. Was more than happy to change and add on items for you and so pleased to hear you were delighted with the service and would recommend Bee Invited to other couples. You were a pleasure to work with and I am delighted you both had such a fantastic wedding day. Thanks very much, Gillian

    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 :)
