Your wedding invitation is your wedding’s first impression, and we all know that first impressions make a huge difference. Which is why working with Anne Marie Gaines of AMG Design Co. will truly help to set the tone for the rest of your Charlotte wedding.


“Being a part of the front line of the look and voice of your wedding is really cool,” says Anne Marie. “I love working with brides on a personal level to get a feel for their vision and the heart behind their wedding. I love the personalization that truly brings the vision to life.”


Anne Marie’s personal style for design is timeless, clean and modern although she has worked with everything from the rustic to chic looks. Her clients love working with her because of her communication and ability to listen.


“I meet each couple and portray that I am there to support them and their vision,” says the designer who loves to box (a huge contradiction to her design style of dainty and elegant). “I want them to understand I won’t try to impose my viewpoint on them in any way; instead I will help them to illustrate their vision. I want to work with them, not just for them. I know the process can be stressful but I want them to look back and remember loving every minute of designing their invitation suite.”


One of the few Charlotte natives, Anne Marie loves revealing the final design to her brides:


“There is so much anticipation around the one wedding invitation they will ever get to design. The excitement once they see their final product is so meaningful.”


While she hasn’t planned her own wedding yet, she knows that providing a service that’s based on communication and high-quality designs means that couple’s will love their end product. For this designer who loves to cook (despite the fact that she says she’s terrible at it), her passion and eye for style are truly what set her designs apart (which are now beautifully illustrated on her new website – click here!).
