Square Wedding Invitations are Great!

May 31, 2008
Square wedding invitations are perhaps the most popular type of wedding invitation that brides purchase today for their weddings. They show off a newer style, more hip and trendy than the standard rectangular wedding invitation of times past. Square cards and wedding invitations have been around for quite a while, and it doesn't appear that they are going anywhere soon. Personally, I really like them a lot.

When I went shopping for our wedding invitations, I didn't go specifically looking for square wedding invitations, but in the end that is what I ended up with. In my opinion, the square wedding invitations just have a newer and yet still elegant style that I liked. As much as I loved my square wedding invitations, I had to admit that there were some downsides that I had to deal with. So, before you go and choose your wedding invitations, here are some things to consider before choosing square wedding invitations.

Square Wedding Invitations Cost More to Send

This is something that I knew in the back of my mind, but never thought about when I was shopping for my wedding invitations. Since the square wedding invitations have a different shape than the typical rectangular wedding invitation, the post office will charge you nearly double to send them. Ouch!! Luckily, I got out of this one without any problems. When I received my square wedding invitations, they came with rectangular shaped envelopes with a slotted area for the square invitations. While it looked a bit odd (many said they never noticed though), I saved a bunch of money on postage. So, when you are shopping for your square wedding invitations, make sure to ask the company if they will come with square wedding invitations or rectangular. My sister wasn't as lucky with her wedding invitations, and she had to double stamp both her wedding invitations and her response cards, so it pays to ask!!

Square Wedding Invitations Have Less Room

This typically isn't such a big deal for most people, as they only need a few lines to give the necessary information. Due to my family situation though, I chose to do something different with my wedding invitations. I did not list our parent's names, but instead had a short verse at the top of our wedding invitation which took up several lines, and in the end left me trying to reword everything on the invitation so that it would fit the square wedding invitation that I had picked out. In the end it worked out great, and I was really pleased with it.

Even though I was only listing the downsides of square wedding invitations, they are still undeniably my favorite kind of wedding invitation. I love the trendy and unique look that square wedding invitations give off, and would recommend them to anyone.
