Five Quick Tips - Wedding Invitations

There’s so much that can be said about invitations but here are 5 quick tips:

1.Personalize your invitations – Even if you decide to do something simple, perhaps even go to Michaels and do-it-yourself, you can still find ways to personalize by choosing the colors and font type you like best. I would also encourage you to choose wording that suits you both, and make changes until you’re completely satisfied. It’s your wedding and you’re setting the tone for your special day!

2.Order the correct quantity – Remember that you don’t have to order 1 invitation set per person, couples and families count as one wedding invitation set. Typically the rule of thumb is to order 60% of your guest list, or count the total number of sets and add on an extra 20 sets just in case, it’s always safer to have extras.

3.Give yourself ample time – Wedding invitations should be sent out 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date. These days, many couples are sending them out 12-16 weeks in advance to give guests more time to make arrangements should they need to travel etc. Planning ahead and staying organized will also save you stress and rushing to print last minute. This is where your wedding planner can also stay on schedule!

4.Be sure to send an invite to everyone you’ve sent a save-the-date to – Keep track of everyone you’ve sent save-the-dates to, and make sure they also receive an invitation! It’s awkward if you suddenly reduce your guest count and decide not to send certain guests invitations, it pretty much implies they are no longer invited and will save you that awkward phone call, text, or email asking when your wedding invitations will be sent out?

5.Check for correct postage - Depending how many elements your invitation has, you may need extra postage. Take one set of your wedding invitations to the post office and have it weighed before you buy your stamps.

Like I said, this is just a quick intro! Stay tuned for more tips about wedding invitations in the future… in the meanwhile, what style and design have you decided for your wedding invitations?

Vintage Birdcage in Brown and Aqua Wedding

Here is another one of my favorite bird inspired wedding themes -

This beautiful and elegant design, called Vintage Birdcage in Brown and Aqua Wedding, has a bright white background with a brown and aqua border. At the top is an aqua blue vintage style hanger that supports a vintage birdcage graphic with two birds perched on top. This would be perfect for your classic, Victorian or vintage themed wedding or event! Pretty enough even for a royal wedding!
