I love wedding invitations! They were probably the hardest thing for me to pick out for my own wedding because they are the first detail that sets the tone of your wedding to your guests. And I believe that many times the theme conveyed in the invitations can be a guide for a DIY Bride when it comes to picking out the final decorations. So when I saw the designs from Jessica, the owner of J Char Designs, I could see how they really conveyed a strong theme and represented the couple’s personality.

J Char Designs is a wedding stationery company based in Dayton, Ohio offering custom designs to fit all of your stationery needs.  As a graphic designer, Jessica created invitations for her own wedding and shortly after began designing invitations for friends and family.  After many years of working on corporate designs, Jessica decided her true passion lied with designing wedding stationery and she started her own business.

What sets Jessica apart is that she really gets to know the couple and their personalities to create a one of a kind stationery from scratch. Many of Jessica’s pieces feature custom made watercolor artwork and laser cut designs that range from fun and modern to soft and whimsical.  This talent brings versatility and gives way to marvelous wedding invitations.

I love to offer my services to brides who are looking for something unique. For example, maybe they have a unique theme they just can’t find the right invitations for, maybe they have unique colors they can’t seem to find. Maybe they want their invitations to have a custom feel that will be so different from anything their guests have ever received in the mail. My favorite is when a client has a special personal detail they want to be a part of the wedding but just can’t figure out a way to incorporate it. This is where I can get really creative by using the invitation to share a love story, tell special details about the bride or groom, or even remember a loved one who has passed on in death. I love to make invitations feel rich in texture and style as well as in personality and intimacy.


What is Your Pricing?

In general, my invitations are moderately priced.  Pricing really depends on how the invitation is designed and we can work within a budget.

People should get in touch with me at least 8-6 months before their wedding date, but I do welcome early planners. The sooner the better!
