Essential Tips For Preparing Wedding Invitations

The wedding invitations you prepare for your big day are basically the first official look your guests are going get into your big day and what they can expect. Naturally, you really want to make sure these letters stand out so that you guests don’t just remember when your ceremony is taking place or what arrangements they need to make – they get them pumped to attend.

The following will take a look at some of the most important tips you need to be aware of when creating your wedding invitations.


What is the style?

You need to figure out what the visual style of your big day is going to be before you start designing your wedding invitations. The reason this is important is that you want to keep the aesthetic between the letters and what guests see on the day as uniform as possible.

Having a coherent visual style that has be carried consistently since the wedding invitations were first sent out adds an enhanced sense of legitimacy to your marriage. Also, the style that you choose will hint to guests what the formality of the event will be.

If you use a traditional and elegant design for your letters, you can expect guests will assume its standard formal attire. If you are going to have a themed ceremony and want to hint it to guests, this is the absolute best place to do it.


Decide the colour scheme

The colours that will be mainly featured in the design of your ceremony should also be use in the design of your wedding invitations. It’s a good idea to take note of the primary colours you plan to use and then incorporate them across all the décor aspects of your big day from food menus to programme guides.

Having this consistent visual theme associated with you and your big day months before the ceremony takes place subconsciously creates associations in the minds of your guests. This uniform approach as a subtle yet profound effect on how good your ceremony looks as well as how memorable it is.

Also, be smart with you colour choices and don’t put a light shade over a white background. Similarly, a dark background with black lettering is going to be equally difficult for people to read.

Keep in mind; the main purpose of your wedding invitations is to communicate information to your guestlist – if you get carried away with making it pretty such that it obfuscates this information it defeats the point of using them at all.


Think about sizes

Of course, the shape and size of your wedding invitations is also going to be an important consideration. Rectangular letters are standard and are going to it inside standard envelopes – making the sending out easier – but going with a circular or otherwise obscure shape could be a great way to make them one-of-a-kind.


Make sure you choose a legible typeface

One mistake a lot of people make when designing their wedding invitations is that they select a fancy typeface that, while looking fantastic, actually make the text hard for your guests to read. Needless to say, if your letters can’t be read then it won’t matter how pretty they are – they won’t be effective in their overall purpose.

Hopefully the above information is going to help you create the perfect wedding invitations that get all your guests ecstatic about attending your special day.
