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.
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.
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.
Use a paper punch to make some flower shapes. Begin making your flowers. Use a small glue dot or a drop of glue to begin assembling the base of your flower. Stack the top petals slightly turned on top of the bottom one so that the bottom petals are visible. Add more petals to finish your flower. Add more petals in smaller sizes, using a different color paper for the smallest petal for the top center.
