What does your invitation say about you?

Have you thought about how you would like your invitation to look or what you would like for you invitation to say? I have found that many couples do not place a lot of thought into their wedding invitations at the beginning of the wedding planning. It sometimes appear to be an afterthought and as it get closer to their big day they start to look into ordering their invitations, only to be shocked by the cost or the proper etiquette when sending out their invitations. Imperial Events would like to share some tips with you when ordering your invitations as well as some do’s and don’t when mailing your invitations. 

Whether you choose to have custom invitations made or purchase your invitations through a local vendor, you will need to consider the type of invitation you would like for you guest to receive. Basically your invitation should represent you and your fiance’. Invitations can be formal, semi-formal, hand written or electronic (Sent via Evite). If you are going the traditional  route, the things to consider when choosing your invitations should be:  the color of the invitation, paper weight, typeface, size, formal or semi-formal wording, or Eco-Friendly. You also need to consider what type of print you would like to use for your invitations. Your choices can be: thermography, engraved (raised print), laser, lithography.  For all who would like to go green you can send your invitation through Evite. 

When choosing your invitation think as if you were the guest receiving the invite and what information the invitation will tell you.  The style and wording of your invitation can inform guest that you are having a formal, semi-formal or casual wedding. The color of your invitation or the color of ink will inform your guest of your wedding color.

Keep in mind when choosing your invitation, that you should order them in enough time to send them out between 6 to 8 weeks. Also keep in mind when placing the order, that you should allow yourself enough time to hand write your guest address on the invitations or hire a calligrapher to address your invitations.

I hope that you found this information valuable to you and your wedding planning! As always, Imperial Events would like to thank you for taking the time to read our blog!

Until next time!!!
