Don't Crowd the Card: List only the key points on your invitation: ceremony time and location, the hosts, your and your fiancé's names, the dress code (optional) and RSVP information. Trying to squeeze too much onto the invitation card can make it harder to read and it won't look as elegant. Leave things like directions to your wedding venue and details about postwedding activities for your wedding website andor print them on separate enclosure cards. One piece of information that doesn't belong anywhere on your suite: where you're registered. The only acceptable place to list registry information is on your wedding website.
Put a Stamp on It: It may seem obvious, but it's easy to forget: If you want guests to mail back their reply cards, include stamped (and addressed) envelopes. That way they don't have to pay for the postage. Traditionally, the return envelopes should be addressed to whoever is hosting the wedding; however, if your parents are technically hosting, but you're keeping track of the guest list, you can use your address instead. And you can find customizable stamps to coordinate with your design at The Knot Shop. Tip: Rates do change from time to time, so check before you add those stamps to make sure you have adequate postage.
Assemble the materials to make the party invitations. You will need just a few simple materials to make these pretty party invitations: colored paper (You can use text weight paper or for a more substantial card-like feel, use card stock paper); flower punch (You can use any flower shape you like; for a 3-D effect, you can get flower petals of different sizes and fold up the petals to make raised paper flowers. The flowers used in this craft were made with hydrangea flower punches by Martha Stewart Crafts); glue dots in size small; ruler (You can use the ruler to give the cards a nice, neat fold); scissors or a paper cutter (To cut an 8 12" x 11" sheet of paper in half to fold each half into a card.); washi tape
Choose Your Words Wisely: Learn the rules to wording your invitation. Traditionally, whoever is hosting is listed first on the invitation. Customarily, you should spell everything out, including the time of the ceremony. On classic wedding invitations, there's always a request line after the host's name—something like "so and so request the honor of your presence." The wording can change as the hosting situation does, so make sure to double-check you've added everyone who should be included.
