Information in the wedding card
Once you’ve got some inspiration and decided on a style, it’s time to think about what should be on the wedding card. Here are some important things to consider:
It’s important to include essential information on your wedding card, such as the date, time, and location of your wedding. Don’t forget to include your and your spouse’s names, as well as the names of the bride’s and groom’s parents.
Timing and RSVPs
It’s common to invite your guests at least eight weeks in advance so they have enough time to adjust their schedule and possibly make travel arrangements. Be sure to include an RSVP date on your wedding invitation so you know how many guests to expect.
Dress code and gift information
If you have a dress code for your wedding, don’t forget to mention it on the wedding card. It’s also helpful to provide gift information, such as a gift suggestion or a link to your wedding registry.
Choose the right supplier
If you choose to have your wedding invitations printed, it is important to choose the right supplier. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Compare different suppliers
There are many different companies that offer wedding invitations, so take the time to compare different options before making a decision. See examples of their work and read reviews from other customers to make sure you’re dealing with a reliable supplier.
Budget and price indications
Making and sending wedding invitations can be expensive, so keep your budget in mind when choosing a supplier. Ask for price indications and be clear about your expectations and requirements.
Proofs and personalizations
Make sure your supplier offers proofs so you can see the design before ordering the entire print run. Also ask if you can make changes to the design, such as changing colors or fonts.
Make your own wedding cards
If you choose to make your wedding invitations yourself, there are a few things to keep in mind. Here are some tips to get you started:
