Careful planning for your wedding is important because you want to ensure that everything is perfect on the special day. You probably have a theme in mind and want everything to tie together, so choosing personalised wedding invitations can get you off to a really good start. By choosing personalised invitations you can also be sure that none of your friends will have the same stationery and you will be able to select more items such as menu cards to match, carrying on your chosen theme throughout the whole occasion.
Wedding invitation design
Wedding invitations come in various designs including wallet style, flat and classic fold so the first decision you need to make is which format you would prefer. Colours are also important and can reflect the table settings, flowers and bridesmaids dresses. Choosing something to complement these can help to create a coherent theme.
With personalised handmade wedding invitations, you can incorporate your own designs, perhaps featuring a photograph of you and your partner so that the people receiving the invitation can immediately see whose wedding it is. Other creative touches such as a specially written poem or message can be incorporated, making the invitation something unique for your guest to keep.
Ordering your wedding invitations
It is important to allow plenty of time for your guests to respond to the invitation, so order them in plenty of time. You really need to be sending invitations for non-destination weddings out a minimum of eight weeks before the big day. The most convenient way is online through a company such as https://www.looneylizardcreations.co.uk/handmade-invitations/wedding-stationery/. You will be able to customize all the elements of the card, see what the invitations will look like and be able to approve the final draft before the order is printed and delivered to you.
What to include
According to Brides Magazine, not including sufficient information is one of the top mistakes that can be made on wedding invitations.
Specify the date, start time and the location where the ceremony is to be held. If the reception is at the same venue, simply add “reception to follow”. Otherwise, you would need to include the location and start time of the reception. Specify exactly who is invited too. This is particularly important if you are inviting a couple, but not their children.
