“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Azure is built on the belief that being a gracious host is an art form, and that memorable events start with a thoughtfully designed invitation.
Historically, inviting someone to your wedding is a grand gesture. In many cultures, invitations are hand-delivered and sweetened with a box of chocolates or treats.
Beyond setting the tone, your wedding invitation welcomes your guests to share in your joy and serves as an artifact of your union. Your invitation announces the journey that brought you to this milestone, the day your futures are joined before your community.
We take pride in honoring this tradition with deep creative discovery. We believe that amongst the clutter of bills and advertisements, your guests should find a beautiful invitation to escape their everyday, celebrate with loved ones and reconnect.
Our goal is to make sure this correspondence, sent from your heart, is designed to distinctly echo your sentiments and your style. Because it may seem like a small gesture, but your guests will always treasure the way you made them feel.
THE AZURE DIFFERENCE
“Andaleeb totally got my vision and was able to customize our invitations with beautiful results. Wedding planning is so stressful with so many pieces to organize and keep track of, but Andaleeb always made us feel relaxed and confident in our decisions. Highly recommended!!”
– Allison, NY
“We were finding it really difficult to find invitation suppliers who incorporated our ethnic backgrounds without it going over the top. I was initially concerned about the fact that we’re based in the UK, and that the distance could possibly compromise on the design/vision of what we wanted. But Andaleeb was absolutely lovely in keeping us up-to-date, suggesting alternatives, and taking on board what we had to say. Our invitations look chic and classy, and convey our personalities exactly.”
