Wedding Invitation. Monday , August 27th , 2018 - 12:13:15 PM
The day has finally come...the proposal was made, the date is set, the place is chosen and now it is time to choose the invitation to spread the joy to all of your loved ones that you are getting married. With so many details to plan and so many choices of styles, colours, themes, etc with which to choose from, the process and ultimately, the final choice can be so overwhelming for some. The truth is, like the decision to unite your life with the one person you have decided to do so with, this too should be an easy decision. As with love, you cannot chose who you love, as your heart will decide that for you... the same applies to selecting an invitation, you will know it when you see it.
The other part of the text is your font or lettering style. The style you choose is but another key element in the overall mood of your wedding day. A very scriptive or cursive font exudes romance and softness, while a block style lettering often suggests a more serious, modern flair. Remember, the lettering itself will probably be the biggest element on the page, therefore, it will also be the biggest and first thing your guests will see once unveiling your invitation from its envelope, so think about the "statement" you want make with the lettering style to choose.
Take a count. Though you may not have an exact number of guests that you’d like to invite to your wedding, you should have a ballpark range. This way, it will be easier to come up with a realistic budget for your wedding invitations. Create that budget. A good estimate for wedding invitations is about three percent of your total wedding budget. If your wedding budget is $20,000, you’ll want to limit your spending on invitations to no more than $600.
Start now. It’s good to give yourself plenty of time to see what’s out there. You’ll not only save money, you’ll have time to order samples. Take six. You should allow for a six-month window when it comes to ordering your wedding invitations. This way you’ll have enough time to allow for printing, AND the correction of any errors in your invitations. You’ll also need time to assemble your wedding invitations and prepare them for mailing.
