Tips For Creating Wedding Invitations
Wedding invitations set the ball rolling for one of the most memorable days of your life, so you want to get them right. From design to details, every element speaks volumes about your upcoming celebration and sets the tone. Here are some tips on how to ensure your wedding invitations perfectly fit your special day.
What Information Do You Need?
A wedding invitation should contain all the main information relating to your special day, including:
- Names of the couple getting married
- Wedding date
- Arrival time
- Location of the ceremony
- Reception details
Self-Made or Company Order?
If you can afford to splurge on wedding invites, then this can really add to your whole weddings aesthetic. Ordering them from a company offers a stress-free option, with the security of knowing that they will look professional. Most companies allow customisable designs to fit your wedding theme.
Themes and Embellishments
Depending on budget and theme, you can add embellishments such as ribbons, pressed flowers or confetti inside the invitations, to add a unique flare. To further personalise, you may also wish to add a photo of the happy couple. These little additions can really bring the whole invitation together and make it stand out from others that your guests may have received.
How Many To Order?
If you are worried about having too few invitations, there is no harm in ordering 10% more than you think, which can be used for last-minute additions or as a keepsake if they do not get sent out.
Any Other Cards To Consider?
- Save the dates
- Table placement cards
- RSVP cards
- Thank you cards for post-wedding
Creating the perfect wedding invitation is a blend of providing essential information whilst also adding your personal style and wedding aesthetic. With careful thought and planning, your invite will become a cherished keepsake for many guests.
