I love that the beauty and simple joy of stationery is having a renaissance, and that it's more accessible than ever. At Southern Bee Designs, we want to make the process of creating your invitations as simple as any of the larger companies you may come across. However, we also strive to offer what big invitation companies cannot - a truly tailor made suite, with handwritten calligraphy and hand-drawn art. These pieces not only set the tone for your event, but are designed to your exact specifications - to be both a compliment to all other details for your big day - as well as a keepsake to cherish. I cannot wait to create something special for you.
