Wedding invites are something really personal. It is the first impression you will give your guests of what to expect from your wedding. The style, type of paper, the printing, colour scheme and the wording must fit in with your wedding.
Their is a huge amount of different invites available to choose from but you must decide on a colour and a theme and sometimes this will effect the cost of the invites. To do invites yourself is not necessarily cheaper.
Invitations are normally send out 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding or function. Put aside 3 months before the wedding date to discuss it with your suppliers or artist to design. Keep in mind that with high days and holidays to let your guests know far in advance of the wedding. We will suggest 4 to 5 months and follow it up with a reminder so that guests wouldn't forget about this important happening.
Before you go to a supplier or design artist for your invitations their is important information to take with. The total of invitations you will need, who is inviting the guests, the date, time, place where the ceremony will took place as well as the reception. You don't have to send for every individual guest an invitation but you will have to remember that guests older than 18 years have to receive their own.
The wording of an invitation are very important and your designer will be able to assist with this.
