Start Early: Your save-the-dates should go out six to eight months before the wedding. It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks—or longer, depending how fancy you go—to print them. While your save-the-dates don't have to match your invites, ordering everything from one stationer can save you money and make the invitation process easier on you. So start scouting stationers 9 to 11 months before the wedding. Aim to order your invitations about four to five months out so they're ready to mail six to eight weeks before the wedding. If you're having a destination wedding or marrying over the holidays, send out your invites even earlier (10 to 12 weeks before the wedding).
Make Sure They're Legible: As you consider colors and patterns, don't forget about the text—the information you put on the invitation is the whole point of sending it out in the first place. Your stationer can help, but, in general, avoid light ink on light backgrounds and dark ink on dark backgrounds. Yellow and pastels are tough colors to read, so if you're going with those, make sure the background contrasts enough for the words to pop, or work those colors into the design rather than the text. Also, be wary of hard-to-read fonts like an overly scripted typeface—you don't want to sacrifice readability for pretty letters.
Ready made Concepts: The notion of Ready made Concepts does not necessarily mean it is not unique. The true meaning of "Ready made Concepts" here is "picking some ideas items we see everyday and transform them to wedding invitations". In Hong Kong, there has been wedding invitation design trying to imitate a passport. This is an interesting and creative concept indeed. The couple can put their photos in this "passport". They can even put their story, such as how they met, when they became boy and girl friends in this passport. The wedding invitation is not only an invitation, but also a story book which tells the story of the couple.
Make a batch of invitations in different colors. Work together with your child to choose different colors of paper and washi tape patterns to create a batch of party invitations. Let your creativity shine as you make beautiful cards in whatever designs you choose. You'll have so much fun, you may wanna create a batch of cards to keep on hand for the next time you need a thank you card or birthday card; it'll save a trip to the store, and money, too!
