Triple-Check the Proof: Before your invitation order is printed, your stationer will send you a proof (either a hard copy or an email attachment of the invite mock-up). Don't just have your fiancé and mom read it over. Ask your English-major friend or a grammar-savvy bridesmaid to check the proof before you okay it. You'd be surprised at the things you may miss (pay special attention to details like date and time and spelling). Borrow a tip from copy editors and read the proof word for word from right to left so you don't accidentally gloss over any mistakes.
What Should I Write? (Your brain is probably screaming the above words at you… more like throwing it like a pair of high heels on your face.) When it comes right down to the engagement invitation wording, please try not to get stressed. This will take a bad turn and will spoil the way your engagement invitation reads. Writing is not a daunting task at all. It is definitely not similar to pushing a lazy-thristy-donkey up a hill and to make it drink water. It is more akin to finding the elephant in foggy room; you only need to feel around to find it. Always remember that according to the type of couple, the invitation card’s content changes to replicate the mindset. Keep in mind to add a hint of you and your significant other’s personality.
Make Sure They're Legible: As you consider colors and patterns, don't forget about the text—the information you put on the invitation is the whole point of sending it out in the first place. Your stationer can help, but, in general, avoid light ink on light backgrounds and dark ink on dark backgrounds. Yellow and pastels are tough colors to read, so if you're going with those, make sure the background contrasts enough for the words to pop, or work those colors into the design rather than the text. Also, be wary of hard-to-read fonts like an overly scripted typeface—you don't want to sacrifice readability for pretty letters.
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.
