The Perfect Wedding Invitation. I just loved Salutations from the first time I walked in as an overwhelmed bride with no direction for my invites! Jessica spent so much time with me. She made sure I saw a gazillion examples and had lots of good ideas. We were on the same page from the start. From the narrowing-down process to the wording to the printing, all of the ladies I came in contact with at Salutations were professional and very friendly. They made me feel special each time I walked in the door. We got so many compliments on the invitations. Our guests just LOVED them! The finished invite was a perfect reflection of our classic, romantic vision. I loved them so much, I ordered all our "thank you" notes there, too. Class-act over there. A big thank you to Jessica, my invitation hero!
Over-priced and limited inventory. Well, I like so many have driven by and finally stopped in. Was very disappointed in the limited amount of "on-hand" products. Seems like most of what you would normally expect to be in a store of this kind was something they would order for you. I would suggest using this as a place to get ideas and then find it yourself online compared to having them order it. They are extremely over-priced for their products, especially Wedding Invitations. They offer the same invitations that dozens of others shops in the are and really, why are you paying more here? They all submit their orders to the same main company somewhere else and they are all processed there. Weddings are expensive enough without adding in their large upcharges on your invitations. The money you save goes along waystoward other things. Just my opinion, I found it disingenuous that the review the responded to was the one where someone spent 3.5 hours with them and had many revisions....who does she think pays for this time and revisions. Again, there are many, many, many other Wedding Invitation sources around South Charlotte that will assist you with this most important decision without fleecing you in the process.
This ?review?, filled with misinformation and spite, shows a complete lack of understanding of our business by one who is not even a customer. I'm especially offended by the accusation of fleecing. We don?t aspire to compete with online companies that pedal invitations at very low cost ~ you do get what you pay for. If you have a real issue with a product/service we delivered, please let me know. However, this attack on a business that has never done anything to offend you is really out of line.
wedding stationary PERFECTION.
If you're a bride-to-be looking for stunning wedding invitations coupled with the most attentive customer service, stop looking around at other stationary shops and head directly to Salutations. I had the most wonderful time working with the ladies at Salutations! Holly, Melanie & Charity are all amazing: highly professional, incredibly knowledgeable and just fun :)
Charity was my personal consultant, and I cannot thank her enough for introducing me to the Smock line of wedding stationary. Salutation has lines that are well known, Vera Wang, William Arthur, Crane, etc. all beautifully displayed throughout their boutique. Since I was looking for something I could embellish with my own personal touches for our wedding, I wanted something unique—but I also didn’t want to overindulge on my budget. (I’d looked at custom designing with other lines and at other stationary stores. I couldn’t justify spending almost $3500 on 125 invitations on something that most people will look at, stick on their memo board for a few months & then eventually throw in the trash… but that’s just me.)
When I first contacted Salutations via their website, my email was promptly responded. Holly, the store owner, set up and appointment time that was convenient for me, happily willing to see me before their regular store hours. On my initial meeting, Charity let me peruse over every single catalogue of stationary. Waiting patiently and attentively, she offered suggestions and input on everything I liked. I was never once rushed in the 3.5 hours I was there. Upon narrowing down my choices, Charity prepared for me 3 full proposals including all the details and pricing for three completely different stationary lines. Nothing we discussed was left out. Charity had my font styles and colors, paper choices, envelope linings, folio options, added design elements and embellishment options noted exactly as I wanted. She took better notes than I had! Charity helped me work my budget, decide what was truly important to me for our invitations, and contacted each vendor as many times as needed to finalize my quotes.
Even though our wedding is black tie and I knew I needed something befitting of our nuptials, I didn’t want our invitations to be too traditional and staunchly formal (read: predictable and bland). I wanted something that our friends and family would open and instinctively know I took the time to hand pick this invitation and help create it. I found exactly what I was hoping for in the Smock line. Bamboo paper, earth-friendly inks, proprietary fonts & calligraphy, beautiful colors, elegant letterpress, countless stylized options… I could go on and on. But if you really want all the details, go to Salutations.
Charity was incredibly thorough in the submission of my invitation design and all the revisions (there were several). Any time she didn’t happen to be at the store, either Holly or Melanie followed up with me on her behalf. Any time I had a question or even the smallest of changes, Charity conveyed exactly what I had said to Smock, and Smock executed it beautifully. Salutations & Smock are a perfect marriage for wedding stationary.
Our wedding invitations exceeded my expectations. I am excited, proud and delighted to be announcing our wedding to our family and friends with such a gorgeous invitation. Everything about my experience was wonderful! And as I told Charity and Holly yesterday, I look forward to returning to them for hopefully many more happy occasions for years to come—couple’s stationary, baby showers, announcements, anniversary and family celebrations.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Lilly. We love what we do and it is people like you that make our jobs so fun. We are also very fortunate to work with amazing vendors like Smock who make us look good.
We can't wait to work with you again ~ you brighten any room the moment you enter it.
The place to go!.
Salutations was amazing when it came to my wedding invitations. I was under a tight time constrain and my purse strings were getting tighter and tighter as my wedding planning pursued.
I first went to a place in South Park called "Personally Yours", and the person there was not helpful or willing to help me in the least.
I went to Salutations, after being there just once, and I was pleasantly greeted by Charity, who ready for the challenge! She was amazing and helped me pick out the most beautiful wedding invitations. The other folks there were equally as kind and helpful.
Salutations and Charity were with me every step of the way.
I will ALWAYS recommend them to everyone who needs invitations, stationary etc....
Great service. I couldn't have been more pleased with the expertise, knowledge, and patience displayed by the staff at Salutations. We worked with them in planning my daughter's wedding starting with the engagement party invitations through the Save the Date cards, wedding invitations, programs, napkins, and the place cards and escort cards. Throughout the entire process, they were always accessible, available, and accomodating. I would highly recommend Salutations to anyone planning a wedding!
Barb and Lauren were such a pleasure to work with. From start to finish, they were fun and creative, and always open to new ideas. We are thankful to have had the opportunity to play such a part in their celebration. We wish Lauren and Cole much happiness together (and can't wait to work on their birth announcements!).
ABSOLUTE BEST INVITES, STATIONARY, and SERVICE IN CHARLOTTE!!. Salutations is the place to go for phenomenal stationary/invite selection, perfect service, and professionalism. They are currently working on my third order for various parties, etc and I've never had such flawless service IN MY LIFE! Not to mention-my invitations have been receiving rave reviews from my guests who say they are the cutest they've ever seen! I couldn't be happier! THANKS SALUTATIONS!
Wonderful selection and paper - but it is their customer service that makes them great!. OK - I do love stationary, so I am somewhat "picky". The selection at Saluations has always had just what I wanted, and so much more. I love to go in there with a project and see what they help me come up with. I got so many compliments on my wedding invitations and thank you notes. Although product is important, it is the customer service that sold me. They are so helpful - and it doesn't matter who is working that day. I have worked with at least 4 of their staff and always love not only the process, but the end result. They are great with details and I think that is what makes the difference.
Editorial Review. Stationary store keeps unique cards, pens and paper on hand.
I'm fairly certain that the "editor" has never been to our store. We do have "unique cards, pens and paper", but we have oh so much more. See for yourself!
