My husband and I met the Creative Director of Anista Designs, Christa Talarowski at the WedLuxe wedding show last January. We immediately fell in love with her work!
The team at Anista Designs is extremely creative, talented and accommodating. They helped us to find the perfect wedding invitations for our vintage-themed wedding. After seeing the invitations (and their adorable lace envelopes) and hearing such positive feedback from our friends and family, we immediately ordered more (place settings, table numbers, programs etc!).
I would highly recommend hiring Anista Designs to help make your wedding (or any special event) everything you want and more!
Love & many thanks,
Claire & Bryan
Dear Christa & Staff,
I would like to thank you so much for creating the most beautiful save the date cards and invitations for my wedding. Your creativity, quality, design and professionalism are extraordinary. I loved working with you and your staff during this special time in my life and had so many compliments from my guests on your work. I appreciate everything you did for us during this process and I can’t wait to plan another event featuring your gorgeous stationery! Thanks for making this so process so fun!
Love Lindsay and Brad
My husband and I first came across Anista Designs by simply browsing the internet for wedding stationery in the GTA. Based on the designs featured on the website, I knew I wanted to at least set up a consultation to meet with Christa and her team. Anista Designs ended up being the first and ONLY company that we considered. After our consultation, we knew that these were the people we wanted to work with leading up to such an important day in our lives. The first time we visited the store was on a cold evening in the winter, and immediately upon our arrival we sat down with Christa over a cup of tea and a book of design ideas. Christa took great care to listen to our vision and in the end, we decided on one of her existing designs with a slightly different graphic. Throughout the design process, her team remained very patient as we worked to get the invitations just right. They turned out to be absolutely beautiful - more than we could have asked for. We then also asked Anista Designs if they could help us with some additional stationery - name cards, table numbers, seating chart, etc. Although we were in a bit of a time crunch, Christa and her team happily created these additional items as well. I would, without hesitation, recommend Anista Designs to anyone who is looking for not only beautiful stationery, but a team of very special people who want your wedding day to be just as beautiful as you do!

Words cannot describe how happy I was for choosing Anista Designs for my wedding stationary. One of the first (and easiest) decision I made was choosing the stationary vendor. One of the hardest decisions, however, turned out to be deciding between all the beautiful elements from her beautiful collections. At the end, Christa and her team helped me design a beautiful custom invitation which combined all the elements I liked from all her collections. I worked with them for almost 2 years before the wedding - I'm the most indecisive person ever and it didn't help that Christa would always come up with new beautiful things during the months leading to the wedding. I worked with Christa, Kara and Maggie the most - they were always so patient with me and was always there for me when I was so confused and needed their professional help to make sure everything came together perfectly. Thinking back, I didn't have a wedding planner or someone to tie all the decor elements for me, but Christa's stationary made my wedding 1000% more beautiful. The custom invitation Christa designed for me was a work of art - every guest was blown away (even the guys!). Many people told me they regretted not allocating more time/budget in their invitation design after seeing it - it does leave a lasting impression. It's one of the few things guests get to keep from the wedding.
Thank you so much for everything! From start to finish you were wonderful to deal with! Our invitations are still being talked about! They truly set the 'tone' for our special day and gave our guests their first glimpse of our wedding! You and your team made our visions a reality! We cannot thank you enough for that!
Love Ashleigh and Jaime
When my husband and I first got engaged, we were excited but also a little nervous-we didn’t know the first thing about planning a wedding! After frustrating bridesmaid fittings, venue tours, and menu tastings, I can’t describe the relief I felt after meeting with Christa and Kara. Anista Designs has a warm and welcoming feeling as soon as you walk in. Christa and Kara immediately make you feel like you are at home. They are helpful in offering suggestions, and they are open to a variety of ideas. When I told them I wanted to create an invitation that looked like my parents wedding invitation, they were happy to help and did a wonderful job bringing my vision to life! Kara and Christa were also helpful when responding to emails-they were always very prompt, and never made me feel like I was asking too many questions!
After we received our beautifully wrapped box of invitations, my fiancé and I were pleasantly surprised when we saw the total cost for invitations- they were incredibly well priced while still delivering very high quality. We also asked Kara and Christa to make our Thank You cards. They modeled the cards after our invitations and they matched perfectly. We received many compliments from friends and family about both the Thank You cards and wedding invitations.
I will be returning to Anista Designs in the future (honestly, I never wanted to leave-I would work there if they would let me!) and I would recommend Anista Designs to anyone who would like to have a pleasant and stress free experience.

Christa was an absolute dream to work with. I'm from Australia, so I was initially hesitant to order my wedding invitations from as far away as Canada, but I am so glad that I did! Not only was correspondence with Christa easy, clear and quick, she was incredibly flexible in helping us to alter an existing design of hers to suit us. I felt as though nothing was a problem for Christa and that I wasn't just one of the many brides she was working with at that time, I, and my order, was special and important. Being so far away, Christa's excellent communication really helped me to feel completely comfortable and reassured that my invites were in safe hands, and she kept me informed every step of the way.
My order arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully and carefully, with obvious attention paid to ensure the invites arrived safely, but looked lovely at the same time. Our invites were even more beautiful than I was expecting and I can't wait to send them out to show off Christa's work! I would not hesitate for one minute to recommend Christa and her team at Anista Designs to anyone who is looking for amazing invitations or party stationery, I could not be more thrilled with the amazing service and products they provided. Thank you so much!
Anista Designs creates the most beautiful invitations I have ever seen anywhere. When I got engaged, I saw them on several wedding websites and etsy.com and dreamed that my invites could be from this wonderful company for my wedding! Working with Anista Designs was a real treat! Any questions were responded to the same day. I had a couple of last minute ideas and changes, and there was no problem to incorporate these. The invitations arrived beautifully packaged and did not disappoint, in fact, they were even more beautiful in person! Anyone I have shown them to can't believe how gorgeous and unique they are!
I would highly recommend Anista Designs to any couple getting married, as well as to anyone who is having any kind of special event (shower, baby, birthday, etc) for simply beautiful custom made invitations!
I stumbled upon Anista Designs on Etsy while I was searching for someone to do my wedding invitations. I loved her style and some previous invitations she had done - exactly what I was looking for! I took the risk, not knowing anything about them and got in contact with Christa. Her first reply to me, almost made me positive that I was doing the right thing, with her bubbly and friendly approach - almost like I had known her ever since!
I have received my invitations and words cannot describe how happy and impressed I am with them! I live in Barbados and Christa made everything so easy and seamless for me. The invitations are incredibly beautiful and exactly what I imagined them to be! I would recommend Anista Designs to anyone looking to have their wedding invitations or any other invitations designed! Fast, efficient and professional with Christa's amazing, warm personality! Thank you again Anista Designs and Christa, for making that part of my wedding planning worth every second.
Our only daughter is getting married this summer and fell in love with these beautiful custom invitations from Anista Designs. Christa of Anista Designs is an absolute pleasure to work with. Her customer service relationship is exemplary. Every email inquiry was responded to promptly, no matter the time of day, and there is a significant time difference between our locations. The invitations arrived and are simply gorgeous! The quality, detail, and uniqueness stand alone. It's an exciting way to set the tone and theme of our daughter's wedding. We are absolutely thrilled that we chose Anista Designs for our family wedding.
