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.
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).
Don't Forget the Rest of Your Suite: Order your menus, programs and thank-you notes with your invitations. That way, your stationer can include all of the pieces in one order, which may save you money and time. It's also a good way to ensure all your stationery has a cohesive look, even if you want to vary the design slightly for each element (by switching the dominant color or alternating between two patterns, for example). Also, don't forget those little items like favor tags and welcome bag notes.
