Make it Grand: This is the most common way to design a wedding invitation. Every detail have to be very nice looking. And it mainly connects with the elements and printing processes adopted in the wedding invitation card. Some common elements that will be used are vine patterns in Victorian style, Monograms or even the word double happiness in the context of Chinese wedding invitation. These elements are used to create a sense of nobleness. To facilitate this sense of nobleness, process such as hot stamping, embossing, engraving and die-cutting will be adopted.
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.
Play With the Shape and Size: A 4.5-inch-by-6.25-inch rectangular card is the traditional size and shape for wedding invitations. But couples are channeling more playful or modern vibes with circular, scalloped and square invitations. Don't forget to consider that veering away from the standard envelope size can increase the postage—bulky or extra-large invites may cost more to send.
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.
