Invitations and Gifts from Hello & Co.

She loves how “fresh and energetic” her wedding clients are, and they love her totally original designs and gracious, personalized service. She’s Mali Chi, and her “correspondence company” and gift boutique Hello & Co. is one of Houston’s finest sources for completely custom invitations and unique, eco-friendly, utterly elegant gifts.

To get a sense of her wedding couples’ invitation needs, Chi asks clients to bring in “albums, magazines, pictures of things they like—as much stuff as they can.” She also inquires about their wedding flowers, color palette and bridesmaid dresses. From there, Chi sets to work. “I get really into creating textures and patterns,” the veteran designer notes, and Chi’s passion for her work shows in her finely wrought representations of peonies, peacocks, butterflies and clematis vines.

When it comes to printing techniques, Chi says she’s a sucker for letterpress—the relief-printing technique that produces beautifully textured invitations, often with an alluring vintage feel. But with the expense of letterpress, it’s no wonder Chi says that these days, “I’ve started doing a lot of embossing,” which provides a pressed-dye texture similar to letterpress, but at a lower price point.

To view more of Chi’s designs, visit Hello & Co.’s invitation gallery, and remember that each one of the styles you see is totally customizable—your design will be yours alone. Which is exactly what you deserve for your wedding, Houston bride.

  2. I’ve have been giving a great deal of considered to doing something similar to this. Asking loved ones to each and every bring a flower towards ceremony-their favorite bloom, the content used at their wedding, or simply something pretty they found that day-and erect it in a vase. Then we’ll scoop them up and tie a ribbon around before I walk down the aisle. At my cousin’s wedding, the many children while in the bride’s family walked up to her while she stood on the alter every handed her a rose. When they were done, my cousin gave his spouse-to-be a massive tropical bloom and tied up her bouquet himself. Like others have said, it had been an incredibly special area of the ceremony.
