Wedding Invitation. Wednesday , August 08th , 2018 - 17:24:22 PM
Wedding invitations are one of the most important wedding decisions. Not only do they notify your guests of your impending wedding, if chosen carefully they can also inform your guests about: the style of you wedding (formal or casual), your wedding locale (destination-wedding, your personal style (contemporary or traditional), color scheme, and the theme of your wedding, if you have one.
Set Your Wedding Date. It is important that you set and confirming your wedding date early as this will help you set a timeline in planning your wedding. Also by having a confirmed date you will be able to notify any out of town guests of your planned wedding date by sending them save the date cards. With this advanced notice your intended wedding guests can plan to take time off from work and make travel plans. Confirm Your Ceremony and Reception Venues. You need to confirm the time a location of both your wedding ceremony and reception venue as these details will all need to be included in the wedding invitation; you should also get the correct name and address of both venues.
Let’s imagine that you have completed the first two steps. If you have not already realized, you have now chosen the invitation itself, the colour within the invitation that will bring it to life and since you already know all of the details of the day including your ceremony site, your reception site, the date and time of one of the grandest events of your life, you are now ready to "write" the text of your invitation... which means you are half way to completing the process of selecting your perfect wedding invitation. The text or written element is by far the most important part of your wedding invitation. Here you will highlight all of the pertinent information your guests will need to know in order to be part of your special day. Therefore, it is crucial to confirm that the date, time and place are firmly booked and have no possible chance of changing before ever writing and/or ordering invitations.
Do you have to use light colored card stock? The selection of colors in card stock has never been wider. Cards are available in many shades of greens, blues, pinks and browns. Depending on the look that you are going for, you may choose a subtle pastel or a vibrant bold color for your card stock. Generally, couples who are looking for a more traditional wedding invitation will choose a lighter color, as will those planning a casual ceremony. For those planning a contemporary ceremony or a more formal affair, bolder colors are a more common choice.
