The Keys to Successfully Ordering Your Wedding Invitations

A big part of the wedding is surely the invitations. It is beyond doubt a big part of the date and you can be overwhelmed with the options available. Your wedding theme and your budget both help you narrow wedding invite decisions down easily and quickly.

Do you need a multi-piece invitation or a postcard kind of style? Do you want custom luggage tags or some oversized pieces? Follow these top tips below to make sure your invite order goes smoothly.

Order in Person

Don’t order your wedding invitations over the phone. This raises the chances of having errors or mistakes. When you order them in person, you create additional advantages and possibilities. Either way, make sure your contract states that the company will help you correct mistakes or errors for free.

Get a Proof

It’s important to get a physical proof of your invites. Get at least two other people you trust to review the proofs prior to approving them. It is no doubt outstandingly amazing what a two pairs of eyes working together can see!

Order Extras

Order 20 to 30 extra save-the-date cards as well as wedding invitations and official envelopes. You may need to add-on to the guest list. This also helps if you make an error while addressing the invite envelopes.

Time Frame

Save the date cards and invitations should be mailed to your intended guest 6-9 months before your wedding. Your best wedding invitation designs should go out 6-9 weeks before your big day.

Graphic Designs

Consider working with at least one graphic designer for your printed wedding materials. Your wedding invite design expert will help you and guide you, while making sure all of your materials convey a consistent concept of design. Be sure to convey your wedding’s theme to your designer.

Tips for Choosing the Right Style for an Amazing Wedding Day

We have some more useful tips for you to use to make sure your wedding goes is as amazing as you’ve always dreamed. Check out these tips:

  • Smile in Front of The Camera – Your wedding pictures and pictures of guests and décor are beyond doubt great ways to give keepsakes to your guests. They are amazing for creating personalized photo cards to be sent out as thank you cards after the ceremony.
  • Create Reliable Guest List & Check It Twice – Writing out a reliable guest list is one of the most important, as well as difficult, tasks of planning a wedding. Your venue will greatly depend on the number of guests that you would be having. You can create multiple lists using an Excel spreadsheet to keep you organized.
  • Save The Date Cards – These should be sent out far enough in advance so people you’d like to invite have time to plan. A good rule of thumb is to send out save the date cards 6-8 ahead of time. Save the date cards are simple announcements that go out before the wedding invitations.
