Handmade. Wedding invitations that are handmade are gaining popularity because they are cost efficient and they add a nice personal touch to your very special day. You may want to consider using a desktop publishing program, too, and attractive stationary to make the process a little easier. Note: Remember to plan on making additional invitations in case of mistakes and allow plenty of time to prepare them.
Engraved. Engraved invitations are classic wedding invitations. They are generally used to announce a very traditional-style wedding. For very formal weddings, engraved invitations are an absolute must. Engraved wedding invitations are also very expensive and time consuming because it takes an engraver several steps to complete the invitation. Note: You should order your engraved invitations no less than eight weeks from the date of your wedding--preferably further in advance.
Pick it out. There are literally thousands of styles and designs of wedding invitations available, there are only a handful of basic types of invitations. You’ll find invitations that are: Engraved, Thermographed, Offset Printed, Calligraphic, Embossed, Handmade and Boxed.
Thermography. Thermographed wedding invitations are an affordable alternative to an engraved invitation. Thermography creates the illusion of raised text (like engraving) through a printing process that heats the ink and resin chemical in a combination causing the printed text to appear raised while the paper beneath it looks smooth. The end result has a very elegant look and works very well for semi-formal weddings. Note: Plan on ordering these invitations at least six weeks in advance.
Will Your Wedding Be Traditional? It is always nice to inform your guests as to what you expect them to wear to your wedding so you should decide on the formality of your wedding. Will your wedding will be formal, semiformal or casual these details are usually put at the bottom of the invitation. Will There Be Children At the Wedding? Are you going to allow children to the wedding? If you choose to have an adult only wedding reception you could state this on your wedding invitation or on your RSVP cards by simply stating "Adult Reception".
Embossed. Similar to engraved invitations, the raised print on an embossed wedding invitation looks impressive and classy, but might be hard on the budget. Since it is rarely seen, though, embossed wedding invitations stand out among the many pieces of mail your guests receive. Note: Buy a small embosser with your monogram or return address on the plate. This will allow you to create custom stationery in a more affordable way.
