Meet our guest bloggers, Jaee Likhite & Reena Vadehra from 3 Bees Paperie, giving a snapshot of the story behind the company and how they could help your wedding stationery needs.
3 Bees Paperie is an eco-friendly, social event stationery company inspired by South Asian designs. Launched in 2009 by two friends – Jaee Likhite and Reena Vadehra – the company aims to usher in a new era of unique and luxury stationery for South Asian brides and grooms by offering high-quality, eco-friendly paper with contemporary designs.
The inspiration for the company came from a common reality for many South Asian brides – the range of choices for modern wedding stationery is slim. The duo saw a lot of their friends get their invitations made from India and heard about the problems of gaudy design choices, poor paper quality, slow turnaround time, and poor customer service.
The idea, then, was to combine South Asian aesthetics with the Western appreciation for high-end paper. The result is a modern, unique and fresh alternative for wedding stationery for both South Asian and non-South Asian brides and grooms. 3 Bees Paperie has since branched out to baby, personal, and holiday stationery as well.
The girls at 3 Bees Paperie also wanted a commitment to green stationery –their lines carry recycled and FSC-certified papers. They also work with printers who use eco-friendly technology.
From Persian emblems to tribal art to henna patterns – 3 Bees Paperie’s ready-to-order line, Couture Weddings, offers 10 distinct designs to suit any wedding theme. Included in each stationery suite are wedding invitations, inserts, save the dates, RSVP cards, and thank you cards.
Aside from the 10 designs available in their ready-to-order collection, 3 Bees Paperie also offers custom design services to couples, including a complementary consultation, with their Made for You service. Working closely with the married couples-to-be, Jaee and Reena extensively research designs and motifs to match the wedding theme. The finished invitation suites are unique and personal, matching the preferences and personalities of the engaged couple.
