Getting Started with Wedding Invitations
Wedding invitations do more than tell your guests where and when to show up for your big day. They indicate through paper texture and weight, wording, illustration, color palette and embellishments how formal your event is, what they can expect from your wedding and more about you as a couple. Plus, wedding invitations tie your theme together—love birds, the perfect pair, classically elegant, a seaside wedding, two hearts beat as one—or at least just a consistent color palette.
Start researching your options early, requesting samples from invitation vendors and companies so you can get a feel for the texture and weight of the paper, but don’t order any until all your details are final. When placing your order, leave yourself enough time to check them for misprints and getting a new set. Send them out 8 to 12 weeks before the wedding.
