Hello! I’m Amanda, designer and lead coffee maker at Be My Guest. We are an online store, based in Mosgiel (20 minutes south of Dunedin, New Zealand).
I’m the one with curly hair, and sitting on my knee is my daughter Sophie. To my left is my son Henry and our black lab puppy Jed, and the old fella to my right is Ruger, our black lab (and my own personal foot warmer in winter).
For a detailed rundown, you can check out this article on The Mum Tribe.
Why pick Be My Guest for your wedding stationery?

Practical, down-to-earth design and designers
- You get your own personal designer for tweaks, changes + enquiries. That’s right, a person designs your invitations – not computer software.
- We design for the real world, not the etiquette books. Sure, if you want to know what is the “right” way to do it, we can advise.
- We aren’t design snobs. I want you to have the stationery YOU want. Unless you ask for Comic Sans. Then I will judge you (just kidding).
Locally designed and manufactured
- It’s important to us that you get top quality printing and card (order a sample pack if you want to see for yourself)
- We use a local printer and source my envelopes and embellishments from New Zealand businesses. Yay.
- One of my goals is to support NZ Mums with my business, so all my contractors are NZ based Mums (i.e. designers, writers, website admin).

More about Amanda (because once you get me started, you can’t shut me up)
I started Be My Guest after the birth of Henry 5 years ago. After a nasty dose of PND and PNA, the thought of returning to a demanding full time role was overwhelming- especially while hubby worked out of town during the week (he still does).
I wanted a part time job that keep my brain active and would contribute financially (mainly towards my coffee habit). I couldn’t find anything with the flexibility a young family needs, so self employment it was! I now manage a small team who look after the different aspects of designing and printing our range of beautiful wedding invitations.
Creativity has always been an outlet for me. It’s not just creating something I enjoy, but the challenge of problem solving. I love the process of creating… taking raw materials, lines on a screen and turning it into something beautiful, practical and awesome.
