So there you are, two months away from the big day, and you are at the printer’s (our guys are www.ashgrovetrading.com, incidentally) to pick out the perfect wedding invitation. Which happens to be not as easy as he thought, as they have far too many perfect wedding invitation styles laid out before you to choose from. It almost seems as if you can’t make your mind up.
The thing is, people don’t realize that wedding invitation styles aren’t just about what seems to look nice printed on those cards. The style is supposed to give you some kind of inkling as to what you can expect the wedding to be like.
Certainly, a wedding invitation is supposed to lay some definite pieces of information out about when the wedding is, where it is to be, the names of the people it is to take place among and so on. But the people who receive invitations will also read between the lines – to see what kind of wedding it’s likely to be. It’s their first taste of the wedding. You want it to be pretty good.
This actually makes it easier for you to choose the wedding invitation styles that are presented to you. You just have to choose something that represents the style you’ve planned your wedding in.
For instance, if your wedding is to be a modern or contemporary affair, you’ll have a lot of freedom picking colors and styles to play around with. You can have a lot of fun with crazy envelope styles, cartoon or even movie characters. If it’s to be a classic or traditional wedding though, a mellower wedding invitation styles might go better.
Cotton paper that’s cream colored would probably look best. The lettering should probably be done in the gray, silver or a classic black. Some people feel that pure white stationery is the best way to go. Sometimes, paneled stationery can communicate a feeling of class and timelessness.
Brides tend to forget when they choose among the wedding invitation styles, that there is another kind card they need to think about – the RSVP card and perhaps the thank you card. If you ordered all of them at once, you’d save a lot, probably. It’ll probably qualify for some kind of a bulk order rate. Not to mention, you can easily order to have all of them in the same look and style. Some people even order their wedding place holders right then).
