I could go on forever about how AMAZING The Silver Starfish is. Kristen and her team are SO talented and go above & beyond to make sure that your stationary is nothing short of perfection. You may think you've seen the best, but I guarantee you haven't until you've seen their work. TSS is every brides dream come true- from the extreme Type A who has every detail planned out, to the extreme Type B who only has one vague idea of what they want. You can be as simple or as intricate as you please, and it's sure to be perfect. Kristen designed my save-the-dates, invitations, seating chart, programs, and more. Every time she sent my proofs, I felt like it was Christmas Day. The best part is that she can make anything (ANYTHING!) you want. I was struggling w/ how to incorporate my wedding colors into my stationary items, but she created a pattern that did it perfectly, and everyone loved it. I never knew it was possible for me to get so excited about invitations, but I definitely wasn't alone...SO many of my guests went out of their way to compliment how nice they were, making it even more worth it. I'm so glad to have something so nice to keep forever (unlike many other wedding purchases). Kristen takes everything into account and turns your ideas into something even more beautiful. She gives realistic recommendations that compliment your ideas and she's not pushy in any way. You can tell that a lot of effort goes into their work, no matter how busy they may be. It's 100% worth it to have Kristen and her team for your stationary...you really can tell the difference in what it's like to have dedicated people to work with. Your customization is endless which can really add that special touch. And to top it all off, she is extremely responsive, which is very important when it comes to wedding stress and deadlines. Even if you don't need invitations, you should stop by the shop to see it and some of the many samples on display. I promise you won't be disappointed!
I researched and researched invitations for many months. I finally found the Silver Starfish. Most people say that picking out their invitations was one of the hardest things, not so with the Silver Starfish. Out of all the things I had to choose for the wedding, this was the easiest because of Kristen and Brittany. They showed us the types of invitations they had and then helped us narrow down to what we ended up choosing. I really appreciated that Kristen and Brittany gave their honest opinion when we couldn't make a decision or were indecisive. These ladies changed my view on picking invitations. I am so glad I went with them!!!!
We were so happy with our invitations and save the dates from The Silver Starfish! I worked with Kristin and Brittany for nearly a year before my wedding, and we worked together to create a custom Charleston skyline to go on all of our paper products that was gorgeous and looked so great on every item that we used. Their team is great with communication and really goes over ever option financially with you to make sure that everything is within budget. Unfortunately, after we accepted our proposal for our invitations and paid our first deposit, our second deposit came back significantly higher because they had left some items off of the initial proposal. As a result, we spent much more than we had budgeted for invitations and weren't able to use them for the paper products for the reception, as I did them myself. Other than that, the finished results were so gorgeous and one amazing service they offer is to stuff, stamp, and mail your invitations for you if you can't/don't want to do it. Thanks girls!!
Thanks for the great review Liz, we hope your wedding day was perfect!! Let us know if you ever need any other paper items!! xo
I specifically went with The Silver Starfish because I really wanted letterpress invitations (without breaking the bank). Kristen had tons of options that saved us lots of money. She also designed the invitation of my dreams, mostly on her own. She is super personable and her store is extremely charming. The entire process was very easy and painless. I would highly recommend her to any bride looking for a classic, elegant wedding invitation that people will remember!
From the moment we wandered into Silver Starfish after an unsuccessful day of looking for invitations, we were so impressed with the service they provided. I had my heart set on letterpress invitations, and Kristen provided by far the most economical letterpress options I saw anywhere. Our invitations, our programs, our menus, our seating chart - everything was absolutely beautiful and fit the design of our wedding perfectly. Kristen was so helpful along the way and even got everything done on our short time schedule - even when I made things hard by being slow to get back to her. I'm SO glad we found them and would recommend them to anyone who wants beautiful invitations.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review Caitlin! It was such a pleasure getting to work with you, and we would still LOVE to see some wedding pictures when they're ready if you wouldn't mind sharing!! I'm sure everything was amazing ;)
Kristen was AMAZING! I searched ALL of the invitation online websites but couldn't find what I wanted. I found The Silver Starfish on weddingwire.com and checked out her website and fell in love with her work.
Kristen checked out my Wedding Invitation Pinterest board before our meeting and she was so prepared! We designed my invitation, RSVP postcard, Reception/Accomodations cards so quickly.
The proofs were great and when I got the finished product - they looked EXACTLY like the proofs.
I've gotten MULTIPLE compliments on the invitations and the RSVP cards.
Kristen was so great to work with. She made my vision a reality. She's flexible to work with, quick with responses and very detail oriented.
DEFINITELY use Kristen - she's worth it!
Thank you so much for your kind words!! It was so great to meet you and work with you on these! Can't wait to see pics from your beautiful wedding :)
Kristen from The Silver Starfish was to say the least amazing! Given that I came to her under a bit of a time constraint, she still managed to help me pull off wonderful invitation cards, ceremony cards, and guest cards. They were more than I had expected (given that I was under a certain budget and seriously crunched for time). She was not only helpful but she really guided me in the right direction, which produced fantastic results! I would definitely recommend her to anybody, especially to those brides living in the south. She brings decorative flair to every product that she helps produce! Definitely a true gem in Charleston!
From the moment I choose The Silver Starfish as one of my vendors, I knew I was in great hands! Working with Kristen was the most relaxing and fun experience of my entire wedding planning! Kristen’s design work is incredible! Having gotten married in September, and not liking the typical fall colors ( browns/ reds/ oranges), I knew I needed a theme that would still reflect the change of the season, but give way to those last warm summer nights of September. Charcoal grey and light pink were the perfect fit! With very little direction, Kristen took the ball and ran with it! The end result was a totally romantic letterpress suite that I fell in love with! I was so impressed with how amazing everything turned out! Kristen is professional, fun to work with and mindful of her customers along the way! Kristen stuck to my budget, helping me to adjust when necessary! I can’t say enough good things about this company, and will be raving about her work to my friends and family for years to come! Thank You, Kristen, for all of you help!
Felicia, thank you so much for taking the time to write this awesome review! I loved getting to work with you (even if it was long distance!) to create the perfect wedding stationery for your day. Thanks for sending your beautiful pictures, congrats Mrs. Silva :)
From the second I walked into The Silver Starfish studio, I was in love. So bright, so clean, so stunning in design...all things that I was of course looking for our invitations to be, too!
As I took a seat and unloaded all of my questions, (and I mean ALL of them...I am an inquisitive person and a detail-oriented perfectionist), the owner listened kindly and answered very professionally. Before I even shared how much I was looking to spend, she proved that she had my best interest in mind by directing me towards a product that was a bit more inexpensive than another, but in her opinion, equal in quality.
She had a plethora of samples on hand of every sort of design you can imagine- which was crucial for me since I am a visual learner and the other companies I had gone to had NOT pulled out nearly as many samples for me to look at. I was especially pleased to hear that it would be no problem for The Silver Starfish to create a custom design, since my fiance and I had attached ourselves to a particular image that was to essentially be the centerpiece/theme of our entire wedding.
As any bride out there reading this will know, planning a wedding is probably one of most stressful things you have ever done. The last thing you want is a vendor that doesn't respond to you promptly or respectfully. I can honestly say that from all the various vendors I dealt with throughout the wedding planning process, Kristen at The Silver Starfish was the MOST responsive, the MOST professional, and the MOST creative.
I could go on and on with how phenomenal my experience with The Silver Starfish was, but suffice it to say that while I had a wonderful experience finding my wedding dress, I didn't cry over it the way that I cried over the invitations when I received them in the mail!
Two thumbs way up for The Silver Starfish!!!
Caitlin, thank you so much for your kind words!! It was such a pleasure getting to work with you, and I wish you and Kyle nothing but the best for the future! Thanks again :)
I cannot say enough great things about my experience with The Silver Starfish! Kristen was amazing to work with! She is so talented and created such beautiful invitations and programs for me! I have received so many compliments from my guests about them! In a stressful time of planning it is refreshing to work with such a flexible and genuine vendor like Kristen! She treated my wedding as if it were her own and gave so much attention to details. I would highly recommend her to any bride needing invitations, programs, seating charts, escort cards, ANYTHING!
Kristen did an amazing job with my wedding invitations. I had many changes through-out and she was always so patient and helpful with suggestions. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for the review Ashley! It was an absolute pleasure working with you! I hope the wedding was amazing, send us pics! Congrats again :)
I had chased down the owner of the Silver Starfish, Kristen, after seeing her business at a wedding expo. Of all of the invitation vendors I had met with, without even talking to Kristen, I knew I wanted her to do my wedding invitations because of the gorgeous and unique portfolio she had at the expo. And boy, was I right on the money! She was the most friendly, easy-going vendor I have worked with through the whole wedding planning process. I could tell she was smiling in our emails without ever even seeing her face. Her willingness to change things as they came was amazing and reassuring. She sent me multiple samples and never got even the slightest bit flustered as I changed my mind over and over again. Her friendly attitude was not only the amazing thing about Silver Starfish, the invitations were flawless - everything I imagined them to look like. I would use Kristen again and again and have actually already recommended friends to use her and I just received my invitations 2 days ago. If you like fast, friendly and helpful people, the Silver Starfish is the way to go! I can't wait to have a baby so I can use Kristen for THOSE announcements too!! :) :) :)"

Kristen was fantastic. She was always easy to contact and replied quickly to emails. She came to our house, helped us pick out the perfect invitations, and worked with us on price to find us stunning letterpress invitations at a very reasonable price. I would definitely use her again.
Kieran, you were wonderful to work with as well, and thanks so much for taking the time to review us! Your mother sent me a beautiful picture of you and Spencer from your wedding day - you looked absolutely gorgeous! Best wishes to you both, and do let us know if you ever need any other printed stationery! :)
Beautiful craftsmanship and Kristen took every detail into consideration and was so helpful and responsive. Only a minor error on the program but remember to double check your proofs!! I think she was the cheapest letterpress option out there and I'm so glad we went with her. She even offered the bridal showcase discount which was a nice bonus!
Mandy, thanks so much for the great review! It was such a pleasure to work with you and Ben, and I hope married life amazing so far! Feel free to send along any pictures from the big day if you get the chance and think about it! :)
Kristen at the silver stafrfish was great. She had exactly what we needed, worked with our budget and delivered on time. I would recommend the company to anyone!
Working with Kristen at the Silver Starfish was great. For our first meeting she came and met em at a location of my choosing nd brought along many samples to review. Once we had choosen my invitations she was very responsive to any emails I sent her and provided proofs in a very timely manner. Great value for letterpress as well! Our invitations, programs, menu cards, and name plates were amazing!
