Choosing a Wedding Invitation

Choosing wedding invitations has become just as important as choosing your bridal gown, because it is your official announcement that will beautifully display your names together and the date of your upcoming union. An invitation could be cherished forever in a frame or scrapbook and will be seen for generations to come.

The most important detail to pay attention to when choosing a wedding invitation is the company who will be making them. Is it a respectable company? Are they capable of doing good work and paying attention to even the smallest details? Do they have a good reputation of getting the invitations sent out at a reasonable time and are their fees acceptable? Once you have found a good stationary company to order your invitations through, they will be able to help you decide the wording to use and the etiquette to use in unusual situations.

Choosing a wedding invitation will be based on the tone you want set for your wedding. It should match the style and theme, whether it is casual and light or a more formal ceremony. You may also think about applying wedding colors to the ink of invitations. This will give guests the hint of your wedding colors when they want to buy you gifts that reflect your special day.

For unique styles when choosing your wedding invitation, think about having your stationary company put a black and white photo of you and your soon to be groom on the invitation. There are also many different types of clip art you can add. For a more formal wedding, add ribbons and bows to the invitation, which can be tied on by you after printing is done.

When choosing your wedding invitations, think about what information you will want to include. Be sure there will be ample room for what you want to say. A typical invitation includes the bride and grooms names, parentís names, date and time of wedding and the name and address of the church. You may also want to include any plans of a reception with times and address. Response cards can be added with the invitations for an additional fee which will ask the guest to send back an answer to whether they are attending and how many there will be in their party.

Once you have chosen your wedding invitations, give yourself plenty of time to order them so you can proofread the writing and have them corrected if necessary. Be sure to have an accurate guest list so that you do not run short on invitations when sending them out. They should be sent out no sooner than a month before the wedding and no later than two weeks before. By sending them out too soon, guests may lose the invitation and forget your big day and by sending them out too late, many people will have a hard time attending because of prior obligations.

When choosing invitations remember to pick the one you feel fits your wedding and style, pay attention to wording, order early, and proofread. Always save an invitation back for yourself for you and your spouse to read in the years to come.
