5 Wedding Invitation Card Essentials You Can’t Miss
There are a lot needs to be considered when it comes to creating your own weddding invitation cards.
1. Start Out Way Ahead
Starting ahead is very important because a wedding invitation needs to be sent out much earlier than the event date so that your guest can adjust their time and schedules to attend your event. Usually, you will need to send two things, which are the save the date cards and the invitation cards itself. The save the date card needs to be sent up to 12 months before the wedding date, while the invitation card should be sent at least 3 months before the event. People can RSVP 3-4 weeks before the wedding so that you can arrange the event more accurately according to the number of people who attend the wedding. So, it's never too early. The more time you have, the better.
2. Decide on a Style
The style of your wedding invitation card should be in accordance with the wedding theme itself so that everything looks uniform and coherent. If you are going for a traditionally themed wedding, that is good. But these days, people are being more and more creative with the theme of their wedding and try to make it look more interesting. Just make sure that the wedding invitation card can represent the theme of the wedding well. If you have no idea what kind of theme or style that you should go for, you can try to find inspirations online and learn about the elements and tones that support the look of that certain style or theme, such as calligraphy, colors, and decorations.
3. Wedding Invitation Details
Your wedding invitation should include all the necessary information for the guests so that they can come at the right time, date, and to the right place. If necessary, give them directions of how to find the venue as well as details of transport. You can also include the information of dress code if necessary. A lot more people pay attention to the dietary requirements of their guests as well, so you can ask them to state it as soon as possible or when they RSVP so that you can adjust it with your wedding caterer.
4. Ask for a Sample
When you order your wedding invitation card, try to ask for a sample so that you can really know the quality of the wedding invitation card that you will be getting. A picture or image is not enough. You have to be able to see it directly and touch it as well because textures are also important when it comes to wedding invitation cards.
Before you give it a green light for mass production, you have to check whether or not there is a mistake or error in the spelling of the names, information, and all elements included in the design of your wedding invitation. You will be printing a lot of those, so if there is a mistake, then it will only add more work for you and it will also cost you more, which surely you don't want.
