We're the co-founders, best friends and designers behind East + West Designs. Since 2016, the same year we graduated from design school, we've been working with couples everywhere to create custom stationery for their wedding day.

We created the journal specifically for you as a type of guide during this unique experience of planning a wedding. You have so many other things to check off your list, so we want to make sure your invitations and all of your stationery needs are as simple as possible.
