Smitten Invitations was created in 2002 by owners Melissa and Chad Bumstead. 2002 was also the year Melissa and Chad got married. The name comes from a friend who noted how Melissa was completely smitten by Chad- head over heels in love. We named the company to celebrate other couples in love and thus Smitten Invitations was created.
As experts in wedding invitations, Smitten Invitations has helped couples navigate through the most important (and sometimes the most stressful) time of their lives. Providing convenience, education, quality products and superb customer service, Smitten Invitations has become the first resource engaged couples turn to when purchasing wedding stationery. Our business philosophy is to value people above all, and to celebrate marriage through providing excellence in wedding stationery and services.
