You should know what kind of event you are throwing, Classic, garden, beach, formal, ballroom. The list goes on so be sure to be very specific when designing your wedding invitation.
  1. Choose your colours: From the beginning of working on your wedding day the colour theme will be important. You will incorporate this colour pallet into every aspect of your wedding planning. When printing your invites keep readability in mind when choosing font colours.
  1. Know your dates: Make sure that your wedding date is known and confirmed by your suppliers, caterers, pastor, photographer and wedding venue. Confirm with the caterers when they will need the final head count so you can leave the correct RSVP date on your invite. Your guests need to know to save the date for your special day.
