Elisha Bertrand. Wedding Invitation. July 13th , 2018.
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.
What Type of Reception? You should also give an indication of what type of reception you will be having so that you guests will know what to expect food wise. So if you are planning on having a two hour cocktail party, it’s a good idea to put a start and assumed finish times on the invitation; this way people will be expecting nibbles and not a full meal. Size, Shape and Weight of Your Invitations. Finally you should also consider the size, weight and shape of your wedding invitations as these can increase postage costs especially if you have many invitations that need to be posted.
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.
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.
