Great news! Two of Spokane’es TOP wedding vendors have teamed up to make your wedding plans a little easier!
Mango Ink is a local stationery company who has a reputation for modern invitation design, incredible customer service and affordable options. The company also happens to be owned by Heidi and Ryan, some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.
aNeMonE is a Spokane based paper flower company owned by Mary. Mary’s unique and beautiful florals have had huge success not only here in Spokane, but also nationally. Even though you might see her flowers in weddings in places like New York City or LA, Mary is passionate about local business and serving Spokane brides and grooms. She has a cute little shop on 2nd Avenue in downtown Spokane.
Mango Ink has traditionally been an online company. But that’s all changed! You can now find Mango Ink in aNeMonE’s shop! With stacks of wedding invitation sample books, paper and color swatches and even a whole DIY wedding invitation section, this is your one stop shop for finding your wedding stationery!
So how will this new partnership help your wedding plans?
1. See invitation books, choose colors, paper types and more!
Sometimes you need to touch, see and feel something to know if it’s right. If you visit Mango Ink you can spend as much time as you want flipping through invitation sample books (both of Mango Ink and other leading designers!) so you can be sure to choose the right set for your wedding. They also have stacks of color and paper swatches!
2. DIY invitation supplies!
Mango Ink has a whole section of DIY wedding invitation supplies! This is a total time and money saver. You will find perfectly cut paper, tape, envelopes and everything you need to create your own invites.
3. Find your perfect paper bouquet!
And the fun doesn’t stop with wedding invite shopping! You can also peruse through the gorgeous aNeMonE paper flowers including bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres and more.
4. Free consultations with some of Spokane’s top designers!
Perhaps the best thing about the new aNeMonE and Mango Ink partnership is that you have access to two of Spokane’s top wedding businesses right under one roof!

Here’s an interview with Mango Ink owner Heidi…
Why did aNeMonE and Mango Ink decide to team up?
Mango Ink was invited to be aNeMonE’s first friday artist of the month in January of this year. Once inside the store, with bricks + gorgeous paper flowers + other local artists’ products, we were smitten. We have been an online store since 2005 and to imagine being inside a brick and mortar store WITH paper flowers, seemed like a match made in heaven.
What common bonds do you have?
Oh goodness, there are so many. Mary is so full of life and sparkle that everyone who meets her feels connected… bond number one. Second, we LOVE paper and can talk all day about our businesses and the love we have for what we do, both of us are passionate about paper! Not to mention, we just love Mary’s heart (and her fabulous team, Missy and Amanda!) to bring beauty to the world though bright paper flowers (that don’t die) and encouraging words thoughtfully written on a piece of paper, it’s all so inspiring to be a part of!
What benefits do you think this partnership will bring to brides?
I think having a beautiful space to visit anytime and peek through wedding invitation books is a huge benefit. Personal service + paper swatches to hold up to bridesmaids dresses + hearing how everything can be customized to reflect their special day is huge and having a personal designer working with you, showing you proofs of everything, is how it should be.
What will couples find at your new location?
They will find an exclusive Mango Ink wedding invitation book and other various artists’ wedding invitation books. For the creative, crafty bride, they will find DIY pieces (envelopes, liners, cardstocks), paper swatches from various paper sources, and endless options to create their own wedding invitations. Also, they will find Mango Ink exclusive packaged notecard sets, washi japanese masking tape (which we can’t get enough of!), and more! The store is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm, so brides to be can stop in anytime and see hundreds of designs in person.
And how will this make wedding planning easier?
This will make wedding planning easier in the way that we are local and present. Drawings, napkins (brides have brought them in to show a design they love), design ideas, and colors can all be brought in and talked about face to face. Our clients across the country don’t get this advantage, so we think Spokane and Coeur d’alene brides should feel very special and loved.
What else should brides know?
- We have free matching wedding websites at mywedding.com!
- We have paper swatches and kits to show them so they can create their own invitations!
- We have free consultations!
- We are really fast once the bride + groom approve the proofs!
- We love to help with wording and etiquette.
- Our pricing is ridiculously amazing. Nothing hidden and we fit any budget. (as low as 85 cents per invitation!)
