Planning a wedding can easily be the most exciting and stressful time in your life. Keep in mind that with a few helpful tips and suggestions, certain things can be done to eliminate any hassle involved with the arrangements. Often times, invitations are one of the first decisions a bride-to-be will make, and the first thing your guests will see relating to your wedding.
Let your personality shine through
Wedding invitations usually provide guests with a first impression as to the wedding’s style and theme, which means it is important to choose a set that reflects your personal style. Before you start shopping for the perfect wedding invitations, it is best to decide if you want them to be clean and simple or colorful and bold. Making the choice should be based on the overall theme of your wedding and should reflect your own personality. Your family and friends should receive the invitation and know it’s your style. Whether you’re the “wild one” in the family or the more reserved sister, you need to choose an invitation design that reflects that.
Subtle tones v bold and beautiful
If you decide that you want to go with an invitation design that is on the softer side, a strong font will offset the simplicity well. This will allow the words to be the main focal point, and it also keeps the focus on you and the groom. If something more adventurous is what you have in mind, choosing wedding invitations that match the color scheme of your wedding is a great start. Going beyond just an accent color will set the tone for the wedding, providing your guests with a lasting impression of what to expect come the big day. If you or your fiancé is an artist, why not make your invitation a cartoon of you two? Or, if you’re more on the traditional side, choose a more elegant wedding invitation with a frame and cursive script.
Money, money, money
Staying on a budget can be difficult when it comes to the details of a wedding. Invitations can get extremely expensive. A good thing to remember is that the internet is full of online printing companies that offer quality items at fair and reasonable prices. Choosing an invitation that has everything printed on a single card is usually a great value. Avoiding a tri-fold style and elaborate paper construction will keep your cost down while still giving you a beautiful, personalized product. It is possible to have all of your wants met without breaking the bank. Having a few things figured out ahead of time like colors and a general idea will make the process of selecting the perfect wedding invitations a fun and enjoyable event.
