Planning the perfect wedding begins with making one-of-a-kind invitation cards to go with it. As many expert wedding planners say, your invitation card is more than just a piece of paper with details about your wedding; it is also a way to communicate to your guests what kind of wedding experience they will have. That means your invitation cards should embody your wedding, down to the invitation envelopes you use.
Making the perfect wedding invites requires several considerations. Of course, you have to think of the colors and design you want. Both will depend on the theme of your wedding. If you’re thinking of a rustic-themed wedding, you should use earth colors for your invitation cards and simple designs.
Another thing you have to think about is the content of the invites. The cards always contain the basics such as the date, time, and venue of the wedding. However, you should provide your guests with more details so they can properly prepare for the event.
For example, they need to know the dress code, the reception type, and whether they should bring a plus one or not. Putting all the wedding details may overstuff the invitations, so you just have to carefully select the most important information to include.
After deciding on the look and content of your wedding invites, your next step is to follow invitation etiquette. How soon should you send invitation cards before the wedding? How much time should you give your guests to respond?
