At a Milestone Paper Co. we create custom wedding invitations and all of the related wedding paper goods. We are based in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
My sister Sue, our sister-in-law, Kate, and I founded Milestone after working together on invitations for our own weddings. We fell in love with design and pretty paper goods. We also wanted to be a sweet spot in the planning process for brides – a place that feels effortless and fun for the brides we work with.
We know you want your wedding day to be just the way you envision it-unique to you and beautiful! We also know it’s a lot of work to plan a wedding and life doesn’t slow down for the planning process - you still have work and fun and maybe you are buying a home or getting ready for a move. And then there is the budget. There are a lot of items to factor in to the wedding budget. The planning process can be overwhelming!
Some brides start looking for invitations by surfing the web or browsing through books at a local shop. In this process many find that minutes become hours quickly and the lack of flexibility in design or colors, the confusing pricing structures, the lingering etiquette questions, or the fact that she can’t feel or see samples in person leaves the bride frustrated and no closer to the perfect invitation. Don’t worry - we have created a process designed to be easy, friendly and creative.
We know you are busy, but you also likely have questions and you definitely want to make sure the quality and design ideas mesh with what you envision. That’s where we come in. We’ll meet with you face to face over a cup of coffee. In less than an hour we will have a clear idea of paper goods that will reflect your style, you will have had a chance to see lots of actual invitations, we’ll chat about any etiquette questions you have and discuss invitation options at various price points. After our meeting we’ll create a set of designs that we hope capture what you were envisioning and email those to you along with a quote. There is no cost or obligation for this process. If you choose to work with us, we want it to be because you are 100% confident that we can create the perfect wedding paper goods for you.
When you’re ready to start planning your invitations call or email to schedule an appointment.
On a personal note, Sue and Kate are settled in Sartell and Walker respectively and keep busy with their families and other careers. I work from home in Burnsville, Minnesota and have taken the reins at Milestone. In addition to meeting with brides and designing pretty paper goods, I have three of the world’s most amazing kids and a sweet husband. We’re busy at hockey rinks, baseball and soccer fields, mountain biking courses, tracks, theater and at the kids’ schools. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends, trail running and camping.
