Your wedding invitation is your guests' first peek into your wedding day, so you want to make it shine. Not sure where to begin? We've got everything you need to know about this important piece of your stationery right here. Define Your Wedding Style: Along with listing the location and time of day, the invitation—and, more specifically, its style—hints to the formality of your wedding. You should have an idea of the type of event you're throwing—classic and elegant, casual and relaxed, or glam and modern—before you start shopping for stationery, so you can choose an invitation style that hits the same note. Then browse stationers' websites and others couples' wedding invitations to gather inspiration so you can give your stationer an idea of what you like.
While hand-canceling is free, check with your local post office first to make sure that it has the hand stamp. And keep in mind that while most post offices try to keep hand-canceled mail separate from regular mail, there's no absolute guarantee that your invitations won't go through the processing machines. To ensure they don't, you can pay a non-machinable fee to have them hand-processed—it will guarantee that your mail will be sorted by hand.
Do it Abstract: This is the most difficult concept for wedding invitation design. The concept of the wedding invitation is more abstract but there will be much more meaning in this kind of wedding invitation. A couple, say, Angela and Peter, can make two wedding invitations, one with the initial A and one with P on the covers. Angela's friend will receive invitations with a P and Peter's friend will receive that with an A.
Have a Pro Address Your Envelopes: When you order your invitations, see if you can take the envelopes home immediately (or as soon as possible). That way, if you're having someone other than your stationer (say, a calligrapher) print the return addresses on your envelopes (most stationers print the return addresses for little or no charge; it's often even included in the suite's price), they can get a head start. While you don't have to hire a calligrapher to address your envelopes, we highly recommend it—it looks beautiful and makes an elegant first impression. Traditionally, addresses are handwritten, so unless you have impeccable handwriting, it's best to leave the envelopes to a pro.
