Need help planning your wedding invitations? See below for my top 9 wedding invitation planning tips!
1 Get inspired
Start looking through magazines and Pinterest. Figuring out what styles you like will help you design the perfect wedding invitations for your big day.
2 Define your style
Your invitations will be your guests’ first glimpse into your wedding. Your invitations will let your guests know what kind of wedding to expect.
3. Keep your colours in mind
Incorporating your wedding colours into your invitations, like menus and programs, can create a more cohesive look.
4. Be creative
Invitations traditionally come in a 4.5-inch by 6.25-inch rectangular shape. Don’t be afraid to try something new, different shapes for example, but keep in mind that different sized invitations may cost more to mail.
5. Order extra
Instead of ordering the precise number of invitations you’ll need, order 20 extra, just in case.
6. Avoid clutter
Make sure to only include the essential info on your invites: ceremony time and location, your names, the dress code and RSVP information. Directions to the venue can be included on the wedding website you’ve created.
7. Double and triple-check
Reprints can be expensive, so ask several people to proofread for any possible errors.
8. Customise your envelopes
When it comes time to mail out your invites, look for stamps that match.
9. Stick with your maiden name
If you’re planning on changing your last name, save it and your new monogram for your thank you cards.
