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.
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.
Count Your Households: You don't need an invitation for every guest. Take a look at your guest list and figure out how many houses need invitations before you give your stationer a number—you might be able to cut your order in half. Cohabiting couples get one invitation; for couples living apart, you can either send one invite to the guest you're closer with (and include both names on the inner and outer envelopes), or you can send out separate invitations. Families get one invitation (addressed to "The Smith Family," for example). The exceptions: Children who don't live at home (like college students) or anyone over 18 who lives at home should get their own invitation.
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).
