Do you have a wedding coming up soon? If you do you will have many aspects to carefully consider and plan. Here are some helpful hints and tips to help you to choose the most suitable wedding invitations for yourself to mark that special day.
Wedding invitations can make a massive first impression when it comes to informing your guests about the wedding. This is likely to be the first thing your guests see when they find out you are getting married. Your invitations will need to make a good first impression because you will not get a second chance at that. As well as making a good first impression your invite should be informative and designed in the style of your wedding.
Wedding invitations are no longer narrowed down to just white or ivory cards with dark text. Some people will still choose to go for a traditional style wedding invite but nowdays people are getting a lot more creative and are going for there own custom creative designs. A good way to design the theme of your invite is to base it on the location of your wedding. For example if you're getting married in Las Vegas then you might want a casino styled Vegas invitation.
Once you have written out your guest list you might want to contact a specialist wedding invitation designer. When selecting a designer an important aspect is to make sure you will not be charged for seeing a proof design of your invite. This way you can change designer if you do not like the style of the invitations you have had designed already. You will need to tell the designer how many invitations you need and ordering maybe 10-15 extra may be advisable for those people you have forgot and want to invite at the last minute. Another important aspect that people can often forget about is envelopes. It's no use ordering 200 invitations and then having to buy envelopes that fit on the high street. So ordering envelopes with your invitations can save you time and money.
You may also want to go the full way and order all your wedding stationary from the same supplier. You may need things such as thank you cards, reply cards, menus, place cards, gift registry cards, and seating plans. Ordering them all from the same supplier can save you time, hassle and money.
