Your wedding invitation is your guests' first peek into your wedding day, so you want to make it shine. Not sure where to begin? We've got everything you need to know about this important piece of your stationery right here. Define Your Wedding Style: Along with listing the location and time of day, the invitation—and, more specifically, its style—hints to the formality of your wedding. You should have an idea of the type of event you're throwing—classic and elegant, casual and relaxed, or glam and modern—before you start shopping for stationery, so you can choose an invitation style that hits the same note. Then browse stationers' websites and others couples' wedding invitations to gather inspiration so you can give your stationer an idea of what you like.
Make it Grand: This is the most common way to design a wedding invitation. Every detail have to be very nice looking. And it mainly connects with the elements and printing processes adopted in the wedding invitation card. Some common elements that will be used are vine patterns in Victorian style, Monograms or even the word double happiness in the context of Chinese wedding invitation. These elements are used to create a sense of nobleness. To facilitate this sense of nobleness, process such as hot stamping, embossing, engraving and die-cutting will be adopted.
The ‘who’ of the invite, consists of the names of the people invited to the engagement party. ‘What’, refers to the type of eventparty that they are invited to, (here, engagement). ‘When’ refers to the date and time of the engagement. ‘Where’ is the venue for the event, (which should be held in a place where the number of invited folks can be easily accommodated without clustering). The ‘why’ in the invite could be optional, as it isn’t necessary to add it, but in case you’re planning to add that, then, you can write something like, "because you’re special to us and we’d appreciate your presence".
Start Early: Your save-the-dates should go out six to eight months before the wedding. It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks—or longer, depending how fancy you go—to print them. While your save-the-dates don't have to match your invites, ordering everything from one stationer can save you money and make the invitation process easier on you. So start scouting stationers 9 to 11 months before the wedding. Aim to order your invitations about four to five months out so they're ready to mail six to eight weeks before the wedding. If you're having a destination wedding or marrying over the holidays, send out your invites even earlier (10 to 12 weeks before the wedding).
