Five Top Tips
Define Your Wedding Style: Before you start planning and designing your wedding invitations you should already know the basic details for your wedding including but not limited to location, date and time. Not only this but you also need to have an idea about what kind of wedding you are throwing, for example, are you going to have a contemporary and modern wedding or more of a casual and relaxed affair? Knowing these things will allow you to design your invitations to reflect your wedding, allowing for your guests to prepare themselves in accordance.
Know Your Colours: Do you know what colour-theme your wedding is going to boast? Most weddings colour themes are incorporated in as many ways as possible into the day, from bridesmaid dresses, to flowers and much, much more – These colours should also be used within the wedding invitations. If, however you want your wedding invitations to be mainly white and subtle to show elegance and class (like many do), there are many other ways in which you could bring in your chosen colours, such as the text within your invitation or the envelopes that you send them in.
Make Invitations Easy to Read: The text on your wedding invitations must be clear and easy to read so that all of the information that you provide is easy for people to see. You should make sure that your text stands out from the background that you are using and put text readability on the top your wedding invitation musts.
Choose Words Wisely: You don’t want to overcrowd your wedding invitations with too much text, but at the same time it is vital that you provide all of the information that your guests may need. Make sure that you list only the key points such as location, date, time and your names on your actual wedding invitations. Having too much text on a wedding invitation can take away the class and elegance. Other details that you may want to provide can be provided on an insert within your invitation.
Start Early: You should aim to send out your save-the-date invitations as early as possible so that as many of your invitees as possible can ensure they are able to attend. Generally it is a good idea to send out save-the-date invites 6-8 months in advance and then the actual wedding invitations, with more details 2-3 months in advance.
