The time to send wedding invites has finally arrived. You cannot wait to tell the world that you are getting married and to do that you need an immaculate wedding invitation card. Your wedding invitation card is the first thing that your guests will see related to the upcoming wedding and hence it is very important that its design reflects your personal style.
WedAbout recommends 7 things to keep in mind while deciding your wedding invitation cards that will help your personality shine on paper:
Designing a good wedding invitation card takes time. You will need to select a design, finalize a color theme, decide on the paper type, and not to forget the number of edits, changes, tweaks before the final design is ready. Therefore, start the design process as soon as the wedding date is finalized. And don’t settle with the replica of someone else’s card. It is your wedding and you should sit with your designer to create something custom and unique.
Will your wedding be a close family affair in a pretty garden or a grand celebration in a farmhouse? Do you want to go for a destination wedding or a formal black-tie affair? Have a clear vision of your dream wedding and incorporate the idea into your wedding invitation cards. A good idea is to select a monogram that can be used in all the wedding stationeries.
While most couples put in a lot of creative effort to design the cover of their Wedding Invitation Cards, they overlook the most important aspect i.e. of what is written inside the card. Decide whether you want to include details of all the wedding functions in one wedding invitation card or want separate cards for different events. Also, clearly list the name of the bride, the groom along with the name of the hosts. Include clear details about the date, time and venue too!
Would you like to include a box of chocolate or a pack of sweets along with the Wedding Invitation Card? Will you need to send a single card or include multiple Wedding Invitation cards (of different functions) in one envelope? How about decorating the invitations with ribbons and envelope liners? Think about all these aspects and try a variety of samples to help you decide what you like the best for Wedding Invitation Cards.
Once the final wedding invitation draft is ready, proofread it carefully. Lack of proofreading is the main reason why we see so many wrongly printed invitations around. Check if the spelling of your name, your parent’s name, your fiancé’s name and the venue is printed correctly. Once you have checked it thoroughly, get it checked by another person, again!
With so many flashy and high-end invitations suite on display around you, it is easy to get carried away and thereby going over-budget with your wedding invitation card. It is good to have a general idea of your budget. You can then work with your stationer to create an invitation that you love and which fits your budget as well.
Make a rough estimate of how many guests you are expecting in your wedding before placing the order for invitations. Reduce the number of guests by half (because couples) and you will have a good estimate of how many Wedding Invitation Cards to order. Add some extra invitations too just in case you want to make some last minute additions to the guest list.
Designing your wedding invitation cards should be fun and not stressful. And having all these points in mind is surely going to make your journey a lot easier and of course fun too!
