When you’ve received friends’ and family members’ wedding invitations in the past, you probably opened them and noticed how much the style and wording fit with the personalities of the bride and groom.
Each wedding invitation should definitely reflect the personal tastes of the couple as well as the ambiance of the event.
After opening an invite, guests should be clued into the date, the time, as well as information such as whether the ceremony and reception will be a formal church wedding or a casual beach affair.
You can even include things like the order of the ceremony and even where the bride and groom decided to register their wedding.
Until you begin creating your ideal wedding invitation for your big day, you may not realize all that goes into making them. Sure, there’s the style, the color, the fonts, and the wording, but that’s not all.
What Do I Need to Consider When Making Wedding Invitations?
One of the biggest things you need to consider is your budget, because how much you can spend on your invitations will directly impact your design decisions.
Are you planning to enclose RSVP cards with postage on their envelopes? If so, add that expense to the tally.
Once you know how much you can spend per card, take a look at styles, the size of your invitation, the paper you will use, and the font and colors that align with your theme.
When you create DIY invitations, you can save money by doing much of the tasks yourself. You may want to have a professional printer print them for you, unless you have access to a high-quality inkjet printer.
