The right invitation can make a huge impression on your guests and can set the tone for the day to come. This is why it’s so important to take the time and care to ensure your wedding invitation suite, including the modern save the dates and reply cards, is perfectly executed.
To find the perfect custom invitation for your big day, start by identifying your style—is it classic and refined, bold and colorful, or somewhere in between? Weber suggests creating a Pinterest board to help you identify your wedding design aesthetic and use it as a reference when searching for designers. She adds that you should also consider the location of your wedding as this can play a major role in the overall feel and theme of your invites.
Once you’ve found the design that speaks to you, spend time testing out fonts and text sizes and refining until you find the look you love. Don’t be afraid to ask friends and family for their input, too! It’s also a great idea to work with a stationery vendor who can provide a variety of paper options, trim your cards to the exact size you need and add finishing touches like envelope liners or stamps.
And don’t forget to include information cards that share any essential wedding details your guests will need, such as directions, reception and travel details, dietary restrictions and RSVP information. You can opt to handwrite these yourself or have them written by a calligraphy pro and then wax seal them for an extra special touch. Etemply
