How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Invitation

Brides are renowned for having small breakdowns in the run up to their big day. Of course, many brides don’t admit this, but creating the perfect wedding is incredibly stressful. The key is to remember to break down your to-do list into manageable chunks. This guide will assist you in how to source the perfect wedding invitations.

What Do I Need?

When ordering wedding stationery, it can be difficult to know where to start. Stick with the basics as a starting point, to ensure that you don’t end up with a plethora of stationery that you cannot use. Take a look at these as your starting point:

Save the Date Cards

Wedding Day Invites

Wedding Reception Invites

Thank You Cards

These are the four main invitations, and stationery requirements, that you will need for your big day. Ordering thank you cards is equally as important as ordering the invitations.

Order Samples

If you are in a quandary as to how to choose the perfect wedding invitation, then ordering samples is important. If you are unsure as to what elements your wedding invitation should have, what colours it should be, what theme it should incorporate, it is certainly worthwhile ordering a number of samples to ensure that you choose the perfect invite.

Many online vendors will provide samples, for a small fee, of their wedding stationery. So, if you are besotted with a number of designs, but you want to get a better feel for the quality and overall look of the invite (which cannot always be done easily when viewing on screen) order samples of your favourites and choose accordingly.

You may want to mix and match your wedding stationery, instead of adopting an uniform invite. By ordering samples, you can get the general gist of how your save the dates and day and reception invitations will look. You can choose for them all to match, or you could include different designs.

Talk to Different Vendors

It goes without saying that different vendors will offer a wide array of different invitation designs. A simple Google search will provide you with everything that you need to know about online wedding stationery vendors.

As a starting point, seek the advice of bespoke wedding stationery experts. They will be able to tailor the invitations to your very specific and niche requirements. Do not skimp on your wedding invitations, these are the first glimpse that your guests will have into your wedding day. Make sure that they look the part.

Price is Everything

Of course, many brides and grooms have a strict budget to stick to, so it is imperative that you seek the advice of the experts to ensure that you stick to your budget. Remember, blowing the budget on invitations is not advisable. You need to be realistic in your approach. If you want your invitations to have beading, pearls and adornments, then you must be prepared to pay a premium for this service.

Sticking to your budget is imperative. However, do not opt for lesser quality invitations simply because they are cheap. If the price appears too good to be true, then it probably is.
