One word – AMAZING!!!!!!! Allison is simply amazing! I ordered invitations, programs, escort cards, and a guest book sign from Allison Barnhill Designs. Everything she designed blew me away! Allison is extremely personable and easy to work with! She is super responsive to emails and will go back and forth until the product is perfect! She was able to really set the whole tone of the wedding through the stationary. We steered away from the traditional look of a wedding invitation because we wanted everything to be bright colored and whimsical. She brought my vision to life, making it even better than I imagined! All of my guests absolutely loved the invitations, noting how beautiful and creative they were. The pocket invitation is the way to go because you can give your guests the logistics they need for your big day. Allison even was happy to accommodate a last minute request the night before picking up my order. When I picked up the wedding day accessories, she gave me the biggest hug, and I knew she was genuinely excited for me! I absolutely LOVED working with her because she is so great at what she does! Her customer service is top notch, her prices are great, and her products are high quality – what more can you ask for?!

Allison Barnhill Designs is AMAZING! Allison works closely with my photographer so I knew when I saw her work I HAD to have her. I loved the organized sleek look of the pocket invitation but I didn’t know if I could afford custom invitations nor did I know what the cost would be. After emailing Allison and shopping around on the internet I knew she was the perfect person for my invites and she was affordable. After having her design my invitations I also had Allison design my programs and place cards. We had tons of compliments on all of our paper products. Our wedding just wouldn’t be the same without her! Our family will definitely be using her again.

I heart Allison Barnhill!!!!! This woman is great! Allison was recommended to me just in time for me to meet my invitation deadline. I had tried looking online for invites for about a month, but none of them really suited our personality. I checked out Allison’s website and she was actually working on a project that was similar to what I was looking for and the rest has been history. She is extremely communicative and I can always rely on a reply from her via email almost immediately. She was able to design and print my invitations on a tight deadline and they looked awesome!!!! But that’s not it, she also designed our fan programs and escort card bookmarks. I ordered them right before the famous D.C. Derecho that knocked out power for most of the area for half a week (also the week before my wedding). Despite no power for a few days she still was able to get the printing done for me before the wedding. Even with all of the craziness with the weather, I never even thought about worrying about whether Allison would get the work done on time. She is a complete professional and I am so happy that I was able to work with her for my wedding.

Thank you setting the atmosphere of our wedding…you really gave my guests “something to talk about” for months to come. Allison Barnhill….YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

Although I am the Mother of the Bride, I know that I speak for the Bride as well. Allison Barnhill Designs was a TREMENDOUS plus to the Wedding Planning experience. Allison’s workmanship was beyond exceptional. She was very attentive and made us feel like we were her only concern. She was expeditious with all of her responses and we knew when she told us a date, she would meet it – even if it meant she had to work through the night. Allison did our daughter’s Save the Dates, Invitations, Programs, Chapperone Cards and Favor Inserts. They were all beautiful. Thank you Allison for a JOB WELL DONE!

ABD was so awesome in creating our invitations, programs, and other wedding day accessories. We received our invitations first and they were so beautiful. I wanted something traditional yet unique and she did just that. Living in Texas I was a little worried about not being able to see alot beforehand but they sent me samples in the mail so that I could see the different types of cardstock and ribbon so I could pick which ones I liked best. After those they were amazing in making our table cards, menu cards, and programs. They did those in such a quick turnaround time it was almost unbelievable. Everything came out perfect and so beautiful. I would definitely recommend!!

Allison did amazing work for me for my save the date magnets, my invitations, change the dates(due to hurricane irene) table names, my fan programs that had to get changed, and all the other little things! She was easy to work with and did amazing work! Everyone raved about her work she did for me! She has some really creative ideas! Amazing work!

Allison Barnhill Designs is by far the best wedding invitation and coordinating accessories vendor in the Annapolis area. Her designs epitomize Annapolis style: elegant, classy and vibrant. She offers a wide range of invitation styles to fit whatever budget you decide upon. When my fiancé and I received our wedding invitations, they were absolutely gorgeous! There was one problem; I had spelled my fiancé’s middle name wrong. With grace and ease, Allison helped me rectify the problem quickly and smoothly, thus illustrating her constant professionalism. As if her designs do not speak for themselves, I highly recommend Allison Barnhill Designs for her chic style and expertise.

All that I can say is WOW and AMAZING. Allison started off my wedding process by planning our engagement party invitations, then came the save the dates, and last but certainly not least came the invitations. My fiance and I met with Allison back in January to start designing the invites and her and I worked together over the next 4 months to come up with an invitation design that literally moved me to tears when I saw the finished product. I could not imagine anyone else but Allison Barnhill Designs doing my wedding stationary. Her creations have played so much of a big part in what will be the happiest day of my life.
