Meet Sonia.

She is, by far, Birmingham’s top wedding stationary designer. There’s none better.

We met Sonia via a mutual friend and the interwebs, and immediately fell in love with her work. She brings a unique style to each and every one of her client’s projects, and we’re always blown away when we get a peak at the final product! In addition to her wedding stationary company, Sonia Davis Design, she also owns and operates Inflations and Invitations, an awesome little invitation boutique in downtown Homewood.

If you’re looking to personalize and create wedding stationary that’s unique to you and your wedding, there’s no better person to do it for you then Sonia. We asked her to stop by the studio one day and tell us a little more about her business, and also to shoot some images of her gorgeous work …



GP: Tell us about the services you offer.

Sonia: I offer custom designed stationery for your wedding day, which can include Invitations, Save the Dates, wedding favors, thank you notes, programs and everything in between. I believe your invitation should capture your story and personalities, and in the end, give your guests a glimpse of what your day will be like. First step is meeting with the clients to get to know their tastes and style and all about their day: How did you meet? What flowers are you using? Do you have any colors in mind already? I try to get a good feel for what they are all about and use this insight in my designs to give them something that is unique and fresh. Once we decide on a direction, the fun part begins, designing the pieces! From the RSVP card to the envelope, all of their wedding stationery will have a consistent look that will bring a unique brand to their wedding…and their love story.

GP: Describe your typical client.

Sonia: My typical client is usually looking for something different than the norm. They are open to different shapes, paper texture, color…and are full of ideas on their own. Sometimes it can be difficult to find “the one” in a book or album. I love the challenge of making their ideas come to life and finding it for them. It’s very much a collaborative effort, so everything the clients shares is so valuable to getting a great design.









GP: Tell us a little about how you got in to this business.

Sonia: I have a graphic design background and was working in marketing for 4 years designing for a National Bank here in Birmingham. My twin sister was got married in 2006 and asked me to design her wedding invitations. She didn’t fit the mold of the typical bride and didn’t want a traditional invitation, so we came up with something that she loved and was truly an expression of them as a couple. From then on, I started designing invitations for friends and decided that this is what I really wanted to do full time. Soon after, I bought a invitation boutique in downtown Homewood and have been there ever since. Design is my first love, so to be able to do this for a living and work with so many talented vendors and wonderful clients is amazing.
