Beautiful Wedding Invitations

Beautiful wedding invitations are an essential part of every wedding. Wedding stationery  can consist of save the dates, wedding invitations, and thank you cards. For destination weddings you can incorporate the theme from your invitations into welcome notes, maps, a schedule of wedding weekend events and recommended hotels, restaurants and activities. Not only will your beautiful wedding invitations express the theme of your wedding but they will also communicate to your guests the tone of the wedding, whether it is formal, intimate, or casual as well as the important details of the event. Your beautiful wedding invitations can have multiple components that you can be creative with such as the outer envelope, the invitation, a reception card and a response card with a self-addressed, stamped envelope. For destination weddings, you can make your beautiful wedding invitations and save the dates unique by creating personalized maps that highlight the important locations of your wedding weekend. Wedding invitations should be ordered three to four months prior to the wedding and should be sent six to eight weeks before the wedding date. The reply cards that are part of wedding invitations traditionally provide a place to communicate your attendance and whether or not you are bringing a guest. More recently, couples often include menu options on the reply card as well for guests who may have dietary concerns. Once your dream wedding is over you can thank your guests appropriately with cute thank you cards that match the theme of your beautiful wedding invitations.
