My initial search for wedding invitations began with a do-it-yourself website that allowed you to choose a template, fill in the basic information, then the finished product is printed and sent directly to your home. Sounds simple right? Well, it wasn’t! The further along into the process, the more concerned I was with the inability to guarantee my invitations were going to look the way I wanted without a physical sample to show for it, as well as, be handled with the individualized care each one of them deserved being mass produced. The thought of having to deal with correcting potential wording, name, or address mistakes online versus dealing with an actual person, was also starting to make me even more nervous. That’s when I finally stopped the nonsense, and did another online search, but this time for an actual professional in the new york city area who could help me with all of my invitation needs and concerns. Lauren’s website was one of the first few I came across, but just after one look at some of the work she had posted online, I knew I wouldn’t need to look any further. Besides her impressive showing of artistic skill, she was also nothing but curteous and genuine from the first interaction I had with her. I felt instantly comfortable that the job would be done with the utmost perfection, and to my satisfaction, our invitations turned out above and beyond what my husband and I had hoped for. In fact, I was so happy with how our invitations turned out, in addition to, how easy Lauren had made the process for me, that I couldn’t resist then asking her to make our programs and menus needed for the special day as well. Choosing Lauren and her incredible talent was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process!

Lauren Weyand is wonderful! She combined her artistic expertise with my personal preference to create stunning save-the-date cards, invitations and place cards for my wedding. She even designed stamps that matched with my theme. I HIGHLY recommend working with Lauren.

Lauren was wonderful to work with. She was able to help design a invitation within our budget that looked absolutely amazing. She was there every step of the way listening to what we were looking for and making suggestions bringing to life the ideas we had in our heads. She was also very flexible and understanding when unexpected changes needed to be made. Lauren is in constant contact with you from when your first contact her all the way till the finish product is in your hands. She is also very understanding of stressful brides and the wedding process. Everything was unique and specific to what we wanted. Our wedding invitations were beautiful and one of a kind. We can’t thank Lauren enough for the beautiful job she did.

I worked with lauren on my wedding programs and I could not have been happier. Lauren is creative, design savvy, honest and reliable. We were working on a short timeline and she not only came up with the perfect design but also delivered the programs (ribbons and all) on-time. I highly recommend using lauren brooke new york for any of your upcoming events.

Lauren was so great to work with. We initially chose to go with her because her invitations were really unique and creative and stood out from the rest. We were pressed for time when we hired her and only had a couple of weeks at most to get them out. Lauren was fantastic and came up with a really beautiful design while getting all the invitations out in time. My husband I both enjoyed working with her and we received so many compliments from our guests on how the invitations turned out. I would definitely hire her again for our next event.

First off I would like to state my experience with Lauren has been nothing but wonderful and memorable. I first met Lauren and her mother at a Bridal Expo in Manhattan. Her table was very eye catching, her mother friendly and Lauren a true professional and very personable. I would like to note, that Lauren’s invitations are the only thing I got from the bridal Expo. My first appointment with Lauren was like reuniting with an old high school friend. We talked about my up coming wedding, my colors, theme, location, I could list all what was discussed but I don’t want to make this too long :o) Lauren came up with a one of the kind invitation for my Turks & Caicos beach wedding. My guests were very impressed and to this day still talk about them. (my aunt has the box-invitation on display in her living room) The invitations captured every aspect of my beach wedding and they had my guests ready to pack their bags. After my wedding I called Lauren to create yet another masterpiece – my thank you cards. I will be using Lauren for EVERY one of my upcoming events!!! Thank you again Lauren for being apart of my special day. xoxox Shanna

I approached Lauren with a surplus of ideas, most of which were half-baked and, at the same time, quite particular. From concept to print, Lauren was a fantastic creative advisor and designer. She was responsive to my requests for edits, patient when I needed to sleep on something, flexible when I hoped to see one more option, and candid and resourceful about how we could stretch our budget. Whether it was the invitations, ceremony program, menu or table numbers, she helped us to bring our stationery to life in a way that matched our wedding venue and added value to the celebration and mementos of the day. It was exactly what we wanted–modern, clean, playful and, most important to us, original. Much success! di

I worked with Lauren on my destination wedding invites and they came out just beautiful! I could not have asked for a more professional designer to work with to create the invitations. Lauren was knowledgeable, fun loving and a joy to work with. The finished product, although I am a little biased, was the best invitation I have ever seen! Thanks so much!

Working with Lauren was 100% a pleasure and I would recommend her beautiful work to anyone! I received an email from lauren brooke new york after I attended a wedding expo here in New York City. I never actually saw Lauren there, but I thought her invitation designs were beautiful so I reached out to her to schedule a consultation. My fiance and I went to Lauren’s studio to meet with her and were greeted by an outgoing, upbeat person that was excited to hear our ideas! I wanted something sort of specific for our wedding invitations, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted it to look like. Lauren had some great ideas also and said she would love to make a sample for me incorporating both of our ideas. We discussed pricing, and my fiance and I were almost heartbroken when we realized her services might be just outside our budget. We told her we would think about it and get back to her, and left feeling a little defeated. The very next day, I had an email in my inbox from Lauren saying that she couldn’t get the look of disappointment on my face out of her head and that she would really like to try to find a middle-ground. She offered to make a sample and see if she could bring the price to a reasonable number and I agreed to meet with her the following week. Let me tell you, nothing could have prepared us for the amazing invitation she presented us when we sat down at her table. It was….BEYOND stunning. It was, without me fully being able to explain to her, exactly what I wanted and more than I could have hoped for! She said that she was able to bring the price down significantly and, much to my excitement, my fiance informed me we could squeeze the extra space in the budget and we could do it!! WOW! I was beyond thrilled! From there on out, Lauren was in constant communication with me, which included a final sample of the invitation and PDF versions of all of the elements inside for approval. She also helped us design save the date postcards and she printed them for us; all we had to do was pick them up! If anyone out there is planning a wedding, you realize how extremely helpful this is! Lauren was more than patient with us submitting her our guest list with addresses for the final invitations and even helped us design custom stamps to use on the outside of the envelope. When it was time to pick up the invitations, she had done everything for us! They were all wrapped up in brown paper ready to be taken right to the post office! What a surprise! Having Lauren do our invitations was a wonderful experience and our guests are still talking about how beautiful they are! Thank you Lauren! Your beautiful work really set the tone for what was a perfect wedding! We cannot thank you enough!

“After one meeting with Lauren, she instantly understood what we were looking for and basically hit the target on the first try. Elegant, creative, personalized, and our guests all loved them and said they had never seen anything similar! We were so pleased with the outcome and the ease of the whole process – one of the easiest steps in all of planning! We will definitely be back for future events.”
