When planning a wedding, selecting your wedding invitations is an important step. Sending out formal wedding invitations sets the tone of your wedding before your guests even arrive. When your recipients receive your formal wedding invitation in the mail they will immediately know your wedding colors, theme, and determine what appropriate attire would be to wear on your special day.
When selecting your formal wedding invitations there are certain steps you will want to take to ensure you order the wedding invitations that best meet your needs. Below are three tips to serve as a guide for you to follow.
1) Determine whether or not your wedding will have a theme. Themed weddings require themed wedding invitations so your guests know what to expect.
2) One of the first things a bride visualizes when planning her wedding is her wedding colors. Make sure your wedding invitations match the colors in your wedding. A white or cream card serves well for the base with the font and design on the card showcasing the accent colors that will be wore by the bridal party.
3) Decide between including a photo of the bride and groom on the front of the formal wedding invitation, a family crest, the initial of the groom's last name or a simple yet elegant design.
No matter which style of wedding invitation you select, you always want to make sure it represents the bride and groom.
