Wedding invitations have to be chosen wisely as it is through the wedding invitation that your guests are informed, and reminded about your wedding. So here are some tips for choosing the right invitation for your wedding.
There are many online stores you can approach for the printing of your wedding invitations. However as there is a high possibility of mistakes occurring while placing orders over the phone and the internet, it is always better to order your wedding invitation personally.
Tips for ordering wedding invitations online
If you do prefer ordering your wedding invitations from an online company, make sure you choose one that will rectify any mistakes on the invitations for free. Moreover as the color resolution of the card you choose may look different on computers, it is better to have a sample of the card sent to you to ensure you get the colors you want.
You can of course use the internet to get ideas for your wedding invitation, and also contact information of stores printing and selling wedding invitations. You will find that there are quite a few trustworthy stores in Dallas, San Jose, Detroit, Illinois and most of the cities and states of US.
No matter who you opt for printing your wedding invitations, make sure you first get a proof done of the card and envelope. This proof has to be reviewed by a minimum of two people before you get them printed. No matter how many times you proofread the card format, the most obvious mistakes and spelling errors will be overlooked.
Order extra cards
It is always better to order about thirty to forty extra wedding invitations cards and envelopes. You never know when and how many additions you will be making to your guest list or how many mistakes you may make while addressing the cards.
Wedding invitations should always be sent a month or two before the wedding so that your guests can make provisions to attend your wedding. It is important that you address your wedding invitation keeping these points in mind.
You have to add kids' names or ‘and family' after your guests' names on the envelope if you want to include children to your wedding. You could send individual kids to older teens, if required.
Mention the type of wedding you are planning
However if you don't want children to accompany adults to the function, just don't include their names or ‘and family' on the envelope. If your guest is a single person, it would be polite to add ‘and guest' on the envelope so that your guest can bring along someone to your wedding for company.
Sometimes, you may want to invite some people only for the wedding ceremony and some for the reception. If this is the case, you have to get two sets of wedding invitations printed where one includes information about the reception and one that doesn't.
Last, but not least, if you plan to have a beach wedding or an outdoor wedding, make sure you mention this in the invitation so that they can dress appropriately. With these tips in mind, you will not only create the perfect wedding invitation, but also ensure they reach your guests on time.
