Picking out wedding invitations

November 27, 2011 · Print This Article

Picking out wedding invitations is probably one of the most important (and fun) steps in planning your big day. As the bride, you get to choose something that not only matches the theme of your wedding, but also suites your own personal taste and style.

When you pick out wedding invitations, remember that it’s the first impression guests will have of your wedding day. If you’re planning the dream wedding – make sure this is reflected in your wedding invites! Your invitations should communicate the feel, emotion and ambience that you are planning for the celebrations.

Your wedding invites will probably be pinned up against your guests’ fridges as a reminder of the date and venue, so make sure that all these details are set in stone before you start picking out wedding invites. Make sure you buy invitations that not only look and feel great, but also give you enough space to include all the necessary information.

How to narrow down your wedding invitation options

  • Theme : The theme and colours of your wedding will help you narrow down the type of wedding invitations you can choose from. If you’re theme is simple yet elegant, you won’t go with flashy, over-the-top invitations. You already know what colours you have chosen for your wedding, so this will also narrow down your options (unless you’re designing your own invites, in which case you can dictate everything from the exact colour shading to the paper finish).
  • Tone : The tone of your wedding goes hand-in-hand with your wedding theme and this should also be reflected in the invitations you choose. The tone can be casual, semi-formal or formal. If your tone is casual, you can get really creative with your invitations. If your wedding is formal, you would want to communicate that to your guests by sending them formal, sophisticated invitations.
  • Shop around to see what you like : If you don’t know exactly what you want, you can search the internet, visit wedding and printing shops and browse bridal guides to get ideas for your own wedding invitations.
  • DIY : Making your own invitations means that you will have to spend some extra time on it, but this is a lot of fun and it guarantees originality!
