We recently saw Melita for our wedding in November. Not only was Melita ultra knowledgeable in invitations and card stock, but about weddings. I've been back numerous times since then and will (hopefully) continue to for future events. Thank you so much Melita for your awesome knowledge and caring attitude towards customers. Absolutely wonderful experience.
Melita is an absolute star. Having seen her for my recent wedding, she is an absolute wealth of knowledge. I don't think my wedding, or invitations, would have gone as smoothly if I hadn't dropped in. Thank you :)

We had absolutely no idea what we wanted for our wedding invitations. Thankfully, though, we found Melita – the stationery goddess and the wedding invitation guru! With creative (and tasteful) oversight, Melita helped guide us towards everything we needed. The final product wasn’t something Melita ‘sold’ to us, nor a carbon copy from someone else’s wedding. It was “us” – and nicely captured the theme and feel of our wedding. To top it off, when many of our guests asked us, “who made your invitations? It looks like they would have set you back a fair bit!” we had the pleasure of telling our guests, “we made them ourselves, and it was so affordable!” And to have them reply: “Really? But they look so professional, so classy!” made us feel so proud and glad that we opted to make the invites ourselves (after Melita’s tutelage). Four words sum up Invitations by Melita – You can’t go wrong! Petah Rhynehart & Warren Hughes
Jody & Rob , Canberra
I couldn't let this opportunity pass to say a huge thank you for all the work and effort you put into our invites and place cards. Thank you for putting my ideas on paper and making them work. We were so impressed by how professional and gorgeous everything looked. Thankyou also for your time to show me how to put the invites together ... you had more faith in me than I had in myself! We had a wonderful day and thank you so much for helping us in the process. Much thanks.
Dee & Rob , South Coast
Thank you for helping me with my wedding invites and planning. I have no idea how I would've managed without you - your help made the work not only easier, but also more enjoyable. I really appreciate everything you have done for Rob and I. Thank you so much for your kindness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to make an appointment? Can't I just pop in?

Saturday morning is a "drop in" morning and you're very welcome to pop in, although you will be sharing Melita with the other customers who pop in.Saturday's can be a little chaotic, and so Melita offers appointments Tuesday to Friday.

  • There is no charge for the appointment.
  • It gives you one on one time with Melita.
  • If you pop in and you don't have an appointment, you may be interrupting another customer's appointment. Meaning that it's difficult for Melita to give you both the attention that you both desire.
  • To receive the best customer service, please book an appointment :)
