So, you’ve set your date and it’s time to invite your guests. We have a few tips when it comes to getting your invitations signed, sealed, and delivered.
Make sure you have chosen your venue, wedding style, and colour palette before working on your invitations. Each aspect plays an important role in the overall look and feel of your day and you want your stationary to set the tone for your special day.
This is where things can get a bit tricky if you aren’t sure of the invitation etiquette. Traditionally, whoever is hosting is listed first on the invitation. Customarily, you should spell everything out, including the time of the ceremony. For invitation wording examples see this post by The Knot.
Less is more
Try not to clutter your invitation. Use a second card for venue directions and pre and post wedding day activities. Remember, listing where you are registered is considered distasteful and should be saved for your wedding website.
Save-the-dates are usually sent out 6 - 8 months before the big day and formal invitations are sent out 6 - 8 weeks before the celebration. Make sure to give any overseas guests plenty of time to make arrangements for your big day.
Triple Check your Invitations
Check, check, and check your invitations for any spelling, grammatical, or date and time errors. This is where your bridal party comes in. The more eyes on your invitation, the better.
