Wedding Invitations that will leave your guests awestruck

There are so many elements that go in to a wedding preparation. The concept of traditional wedding cards has now been replaced by luxury wedding invitations. The wedding invitation will create the first impression in the minds of the guests even before the wedding.

The format of wedding invitations has undergone a complete revamp. Wedding invitation does not simply mean a card with all the details of the wedding mentioned. Instead of wedding cards, invitations can be given in decorated boxes. The first mode of communication with the guests is through wedding invitations.

While choosing a wedding invitation the couple can go for an invitation card which will go with the theme of the wedding. Though there is no right or wrong when it comes to wedding invitations it is better to go with a similar theme as of the wedding.

The contents of the wedding invitation also play an important role. Some of the basic and essential details that must be included are name of the couple, date and time of the wedding. The venue should also be mentioned in clear writing. There are different materials which can be used to make the wedding invitation. If the family wants to go for a simple look they can choose between cotton and linen. For those who want something more lavish can opt for a silk or satin material.

Some families have a hereditary symbol. That symbol can be embossed on top of the wedding box to give a personalized look. When we talk about opulent wedding invitations it doesn’t mean just the decorative element. It must be luxurious for the guest as well. For that a menu card can also be added to the invitation. This way the guests already know what food they will be getting.

Once the contents of the card have been designed the type of envelope can be decided. A double envelope gives a grand feel to the wedding invitation. There is an outer and inner envelope. The inner envelope can talk about the family of the couple, while the outer envelope contains details about the guests like their address and house name.

To add an element of grandiose in the wedding invitation cards, a small gift can be included in the wedding invitation. A few examples of such a keepsake can be a pearl or charm ornament. This keepsake will make sure the guests will remember the wedding for a long time to come.

Craft Perfect Wedding Invitations

wedding invitations

 

 

If you are following any of the wedding trends this year, you’ve seen how important the wedding invitations are.

Brides, grooms and their mothers spend considerable time pouring overing options, and with good reason. There are many decisions to make about the invitations you are sending to your guests.

You have one chance to set the tone for the most important day of your life, and the invitations you send to your guests must be as perfect as you intend your wedding day to be.

Here’s what to look for.

 

Materials

The best invitations arrive on premier paper. You have plenty of choices in wedding invitation paper, from linen to vellum, and everything in-between.

Make sure you select the heaviest paper weight you can get. Opt for 80l lb. paper and higher, if you are given the choice.The quality is unbeatable, and it will withstand embossing, which is still a preferred trend for invitations this year.

The thicker paper offers a substantial surface for additional embellishments, too.

 

A Word about Wording

Using a cafeteria-plan style of lifting only the phrases you like for your wedding will likely give you a rather unpleasant mash-up of language. Sending invitations with the wrong tone — either too informal or too formal — will reveal that your wording came from six or seven websites, and the invitation won;t have a sense of style or flow.

Work with your wedding planner to craft the right phrasing and tone for your invitations.

It is customary that whoever is paying for the wedding leads the invitation with something like “ ‘The Parents of’ or ‘Bride’s Name and Groom’s Name’ request the honor of your presence . . . .” if the wedding is formal.

Today’s more casual invitations often drop the request altogether and strike a more informal tone, like “The surf’s up, and Bride and Groom are down for getting married . . . “

Pulling Everything Together

Wedding invitations are much more than an invitation.

You’ll need to decide on any other inserts that must go with the invitations, such as RSVP cards, parking information and more.

When you have a clear picture of everything a guest will need, your nest step is to select how it all goes together. By the time you assemble an invitation with embellishments and all the additional inserts, you likely will need something bigger and more protective than a traditional paper envelope.

Explore folios, silk envelopes and invitation boxes in which you can send your wedding invitations. For example, a luxury wedding envelope featuring ivory silk and pearl button with padding can be an elegant way to house your invitation, or you may prefer an invitation box wrapped in luxurious duping silk.

Your wedding invitations will be perfect if you talk the time to carefully craft them with the right materials, wording and prevention.
