Jul 24, 2008
Undoubtedly, you will need to consider your wedding invitation when you are planning for your wedding. In fact, it is one of the most important items in your wedding. All couples will try very hard to search for the most perfect wedding invitation. Some may even hire a designer who is specialized in wedding invitation design so that they can make sure the the invitation card will be unique.

Of course you may not really need a physical wedding invitation if you are planning invite your guests via emails. However, you have to understand that a wedding is all about etiquette. It will be a bit impolite if you do not send you guests wedding invitation cards. As a result, you will probably stick to the option of sending physical wedding cards.

The first thing you need to consider when you are searching for your wedding invitation is the number cards you need to order. You will need to estimate the number of guests. To this end you will need to discuss with your parents. They will tell you who they would like to invite.

On the other hand, you will also need to ask your fiance to ask his / her parents on the number of guests they would like to invite. Now you will know the number of guests the parents would like to invite. You will add this to the guest list of you and your fiance and finally you will have the exact number of guests you will invite.

You may think that the number of invitation you need to order will be the number of the guests you are going to invite. However, you should never do so. You will have no invitation to send in case that you want to invite one or two more guests. As a result, you have to order some extra cards. As a rule of thumb, you can order 10 to 15% extra so that you can use them in case you need to invite some more guests.

Concerning the addresses on the envelopes, some couples may want to print them with their printers at home. However, this may not be a good way to do so. As a matter of fact, it will be better if you can write the addresses yourself. Again, a wedding is all about etiquette. It is more polite to address the envelopes by your hand.

Besides, you will also need to see if you need to consider other items such as respond cards. You will be able to save money if you can print them with your invitations. In fact, you will need to consider a whole set of wedding stationery to this end. You may also need to think about your thank you card, place card and so on. Of course you will be able to save some money if you print all of them together. However, the main reason behind ordering them together is that you can make sure that they will all be of the same design. This will make your stationery set more consistent in terms of design.
