Wedding Invitation Etiquette - Some Tips for You

Mar 21, 2008
A wedding can be something very expensive. As a result some couple will try to spend less on some of the less important items. In fact they will even pay less attention to these items or aspects. The wedding invitation is certainly one of these items.

However, the temptation to save money does not mean that the quality can be sacrificed. As a matter of fact the invitation gives the first impression of the wedding to your guests. It will set the tone of your big day. To this end the invitation will be a very important item.

In order to have a better invitation, some key features should be included. You should consider all these features. To this end, you can spend less money on finding a very stylish wedding invitation. Yet you have to make sure that it can fulfill its functions.

One of the most important aspects of a wedding card is the wordings you use. Most people will consider it the most essential part of the card since there will be no invitation without the wordings.

You will need to put all the necessary information in the card. Without any surprise, you will need to put the details of the wedding such as the date, time and venue of the ceremony. Information of the reception will also be needed. Remember not to forget the names of the couples, as well as the names of the parents. You do not need to follow the so called standard format of the wordings but you have to make sure that all the information will be put onto the card.

You will also need to estimate the number of invitations to be ordered. You should try to create a guest list in order to get the number of cards to be ordered. It is always a good idea to have some extra cards in case you need to invite some more guests. As a rule of thumb you can order 20 to 30 extra cards for this purpose.

Usually, a couple will send the invitation six weeks to twelve month before the big day. In some cases you may also send a save-the-date card to your guests.

As mentioned, you do not need to find an expensive card. What you need to do is to make sure that you have taken care of all the above mentioned issues. Considering the style of the cards, usually a more stylish card will be more expensive. However, you can always save money by designing and printing it yourself.
