Your wedding invitation is the first glimpse your family and friends will have of your special day. It sets the expectations of your guests and the theme of your wedding. The invitation also reflects the commitment and effort you’ve given to your wedding. Don’t cut corners when creating your wedding invitation. A wonderful day deserves an excellent preview.
Decide on a Wedding Theme
Everything you’ll see and use for your wedding must go together. Having a theme guides you in the right direction. Once you’ve decided on a style, it will be easy to look for design ideas for your wedding invitation. If you’re throwing a black tie event, for example, you may incorporate this style on your wedding invitation. This way, guests will know what to expect on your special day as soon as they see the invitation. Additionally, the design and colours of your invitation give your guests an idea of what to wear.
Make Your Invitation Stand Out
Let’s face it, some people don’t regularly go through their mail, especially when they’re not expecting anything more urgent than bills. When you use the conventional, rectangular 4.5 inch by 6.25-inchcards, your guests may not notice it immediately. They may place it on their mail stack, thinking it’s another piece of unsolicited mail. Make your invitation stand out by experimenting with shapes, sizes, and colours. Round, square, and tea-length shapes are popular ideas for wedding invites.
Only Include the Essentials
Resist the urge to include all your wedding details on your invitation. Putting too much information on your invite may make it difficult to read. Furthermore, putting too many details on the card won’t make it look elegant. Just list the essential things, such as your names, the date, location, and time of the ceremony, and RSVP information.
Go Through the Proof More than Once
The last thing you’d want to happen is receiving a hundred invites with your names spelled incorrectly. Before printing your invitations, your printer will send you a proof. This is your last chance to change or correct anything on the invitation. Once you give the go signal for printing and you find a mistake on the final copy, you’ll have to pay for another set.
