Wedding invitations are a very significant component of any wedding, no matter what the style. It should go without saying that a wedding invitation is a formal letter asking the recipient of the invitation to attend a wedding on a specified date. Typically, it’s written in the third person, formal language and sent at least five to seven weeks prior to the wedding date.
You can find a lot of different formal wedding invitations wording online. If you have the Internet, this will save you a ton of time from having to comb the stores for wedding invitations wording. However, you should also take into consideration that if you want to save money, you can also use free printable wedding invitations wording online. These will likely not be as formal as the ones you can get at the store, but if all you need is some generic wording, these could be adequate enough for your needs. Just make sure that you get the wording that is in line with the wedding colors or theme because there is nothing worse in the world than getting wedding invitations that have the wrong information.
One popular option when creating your wedding invitations is to include a special insert card with your names, wedding date and venue name on. This insert card can be found in most wedding stationary stores, is inexpensive and can save you the hassle of having to shop at multiple stores to find this specific insert card. It’s a simple way to give your guests an idea of where to meet and how to get there, as well as the venue for your reception.
A very common way to address your wedding invitations is with adults-only invitations. The problem with this method is that it can sometimes leave some guests wondering if they are invited to a party. One way to solve this problem is to let guests know in advance whether they are invited to the event or not. If your event is only for adults, then you may consider including an adult-only information card on the back of the invitation. You may also choose to include an “adults only” information card on the front of the invitation, but I would suggest that you leave the information card off the actual wedding invitations, so your guests don’t confuse the invitation with the information card.
If you choose to address your wedding invitations by yourself, another option is to leave off the name of the married couple on the invitation itself. The good thing about doing this is that it is still appropriate to add the couple’s names to your wedding invitations after the wedding ceremony, if necessary. Another etiquette tip is to send out the wedding invitations well in advance, around 2 months before your wedding day. This allows your guests time to shop for appropriate attire. Remember to use the same format for addressing your invitations as you did for your wedding invitations!
In addition to addressing your wedding invitations, it is important to purchase the right wedding invitation suite for your special day. There are many different theme options available, from religious to contemporary. Most couples will want to buy a stationery set that matches their general style. Stationery sets usually include the matching envelopes and stamp. Your guest list will determine the style of theme you choose for your wedding invitations.
