Engagement Invitations: Here are a few pointers to be kept in mind while preparing the wedding invitation for your family and friends. They are easy to remember. Besides, once you get the hang of it, you’ll feel dumb to have been worrying about it in the first place. So, go ahead and give it a read: Always Remember The 5 W(s) & 1 H. Your invitation must clearly mention the fundamentals i.e. 5 W(s) – who, what, when, where and why.
Also, one of the most important aspects in an invite is the set of directions. You must provide your guests with directions that are easy to understand. Gifts are not traditionally given at an engagement, though that is of course the prerogative of the happy couple. A good way to clear any doubt is to mention this preference on the invitations themselves. The couple themselves can specify on the gift requirement, since a lot of couples these days are opting to go for gifts of cash instead of getting a host of items, most of which will, according to narrative law, either be exchanged or passed on as an engagement gift in a never ending circle of magnanimity.
Have a Pro Address Your Envelopes: When you order your invitations, see if you can take the envelopes home immediately (or as soon as possible). That way, if you're having someone other than your stationer (say, a calligrapher) print the return addresses on your envelopes (most stationers print the return addresses for little or no charge; it's often even included in the suite's price), they can get a head start. While you don't have to hire a calligrapher to address your envelopes, we highly recommend it—it looks beautiful and makes an elegant first impression. Traditionally, addresses are handwritten, so unless you have impeccable handwriting, it's best to leave the envelopes to a pro.
Do a Weigh-In: While you probably can't wait to drop those wedding invitations in the mail and check another thing off your to-do list, weighing a sample invitation (enclosures and all) at the post office first could save you many more to-dos later. Trust us, you don't want to deal with the hassle of invitations being returned because of insufficient postage. And while you're at the post office, ask about hand-canceling your invites. This involves a stamp that says your mail is processed (instead of running your invites through the processing machine like regular mail, which could bend or even ruin them).
