The wedding invitations come in an overwhelming variety of designs, sizes, patterns, color combination and shapes, so selecting just one design is a heavy task, unless you made up your mind and if you already know what you should be looking for.
It might sound quite simple in theory, but choosing the right wedding invitations for your long-awaited wedding day might prove a bit difficult, especially for the inexperienced.
The design of the wedding invitation can give a hint to your guests about the theme of your wedding or what should they expect from such an important event.
You can always be creative and use your artistic skills to make the wedding invitations by yourself, that is, if you have the necessary time and patience. Another option I often recommend is to purchase the wedding invitations from online manufacturers because on the internet you might find some unique and very cheap wedding cards; you can also decide to personalize the cards by using different methods made available also by those manufacturers.
There are two wording options you can use to issue the invitations: the formal wording based on a long-lasting wording etiquette or the informal language or make the invitation using your own creativity with words.
The text can either be written by hand, but this is an expensive method, engraved or printed by using thermography with its beautiful raised letter effect. This procedure is the cheapest and by using old letter fonts or some intricate calligraphy styles you can obtain some interesting and special wedding invitations.
The invitation should contain pertinent informational details about the wedding, either if we are talking about a traditional or unconventional wedding, such as the name of the bride and the name of the groom, the names of the wedding hosts, details about the location of the ceremony and reception, the address, some directional signs and even a printed map, the date and time, the RSVP if you find it necessary to receive an attendance response. This RSVP can be written on the wedding invitation card or on a separate reply card.
Details about this reception can be added on the wedding invitation, such as mentioning the fact that you are expecting only adult attendance or make a suggestion about how should your guests dress if you are having a themed wedding party.
The above are just some general tips you should understand about the wedding invitations.
