The décor may range from having fancy knots that are unravelled to reveal the words, to coming as origami creations that artfully unfold into an evocative message. Thanks to the rise of Geek culture, there has even been an explosion of invitations in the form of comics. With the whole potential of sequentially juxtaposed images unlocked to you, the depth of emotion that can be invested in the canvas of a blank sheet of paper will propel your invitation to the forefront of the popular imagination. You can match the theme of the invitation to the wedding, or you can be adventurous and have fun with it; your engagement is just the start of many celebrations! So pace out whatever you think needs to be said and march to a drumbeat that you alone can hear. It is your imagination and your wallet that make your card unique, attractive and beautiful.
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).
Know Your Colors: Think about your wedding colors too. You may want to incorporate your hues and a motif (if you have one) into your wedding invitations—and then carry them throughout the rest of your wedding paper (like the escort cards, menus and ceremony programs) for a cohesive look. While ivory, cream or white card stock paired with a black or gold font is the classic choice for formal wedding invitations, you can also brighten your invites with colorful or metallic fonts, paper stock, envelopes and liners. Just keep readability in mind when choosing your colors (more on that later).
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).
