Wedding Invitations 101

You may be thinking the first exciting experience for your guest will be the moment you walk down the aisle in your custom wedding dress, but the excitement often starts with the invitation. From your save the dates to your thank you notes, your wedding stationary says a lot more about you and your wedding than you may realise. Your wedding invitation (or save the date) is one of the first impressions you will make on your guests. It’s a chance to set the scene for your wedding and give cues to your overall theme.

It has become more common to create a website that provides any additional information, however if you wish to continue with a formal and traditional approach including a separate card for the following is recommended:

  • An RSVP card that includes a return stamp/return envelope.
  • Information regarding your registry or wishing well.
  • Information on suggested accommodation close to your reception venue.
  • Any necessary information for parents who are bringing children.

Lastly, whilst the design of your invitations can be elaborate it is always best to keep the information you are conveying to your guests simple and concise.
