If you are planning to tie the knot this year, apart from your dreamy bridal dress there are so many other things you have to pay your attention to make your big day a reality. After preparing your guests list, the next thing you have to do is getting your nuptials invites done. For this you have to first decide the overall theme of your marriage as your invites should match with the other decorations and all. It is a whole long process of designing, ordering, sealing and delivering! So let us see how to deliver the perfect wedding invite to your guests on time.
Decide your theme
First and foremost you have to come up with a theme of your choice for your nuptial. If you are planning to have a separate engagement party, then you will have to do this in advance because even your engagement party invites should be in-line with a one theme. You can discuss with your partner and pick a theme. If you are bombarded with so many ideas, consult a bridal planner to sort out the best theme for you. Once you have decided on a theme, you can go ahead with designing.
Designing your invites
As now you have a proper theme, you can start designing your wedding invites. If you can roughly sketch the idea in your mind, it will be easily to give your idea out to the designer. You can explain about your theme to your designer, so he can show you more options. Make sure you pick the material you want as there are many varieties including foil wedding invitations and lacer cut designs.
Choose your words
Develop your message on the invitation according to your traditions and rituals. Make sure your spellings are totally correct as you will be sending this out to many parties. The other thing is, double check whether you have mentioned the date and venue properly.
Ordering your invites
When you finalize the design and wording, you should get them printed. If your designer offers printing facilities you can assign them printing also. But if you want to go for separate printers, you have to call for quotations and choose the one that matches your budget. Specifically inform them when you exactly want the invites to avoid disappointments.
Writing and Mailing
Once you get the engagement invites printed, start writing them early. Because it is always better to send them in advance as your guests should adjust their schedules. Use a pen which will not blur and ruin your card once you fold it to put inside the envelope. Start distributing them and keep a record, so you can tick off when you invite someone.
