Invitations are a very important part of every wedding. Not only do they provide the necessary information and details regarding the wedding day to your invited guests, but wedding invitations also set the tone for the style and formality of your wedding.
Choosing the perfect wedding invitation can be very overwhelming for brides. There are so many options available and it can be difficult to decide when you don’t know where to start. Here are some tips for helping you choose the perfect wedding invitations.
Determine your budget.
You will need to decide how much you want to spend on your invitations. The costs of invitations varies greatly depending on quality, style and quantity. Determine how many invitations you will need to order firstly, and then shop around to find invitations that are within your budget. You will want to be sure you are getting the best possible quality you can afford. There are many options in the Toronto area – as wedding planners we can help guide you in the right direction for wedding stationery that works within your budget.
Choose a theme and overall style.
You will want your invitations to match the overall theme and style of your wedding. Your invitation is like giving your guests a little glimpse into what they can expect on your wedding day. Whether you are having a very elegant formal wedding or a casual back yard gathering, choosing things like colours, fonts and paper that complement the style of your wedding is important.
Choose your wording.
The wording is an extremely important aspect of the wedding invitation. You will need to determine who is hosting the wedding – either your parents, or your fiancé’s parent, or both. Possibly you are hosting the wedding yourselves? You also need to ensure that all of the proper information regarding the wedding is listed so that your guests have all the relevant information such as the date, time of the ceremony and reception, address of the ceremony and reception venues, and the formality of the wedding. Will it be a champagne brunch, full sit down dinner reception, or an evening cocktail party? We can assist you with the wording of your invitation to help streamline the process for you and to ensure nothing is forgotten. Remember to proof read and then proof read again to be sure there are no spelling mistakes!
Research the different options.
There are many options available when ordering your wedding invitations. Determine what inserts you need to provide – like the RSVP card, or inserts with travel and accommodation information and choose the invitation that will work with all the parts that you need to include. There are many great stationery companies in Toronto that can create a custom one-of-a-kind look for your wedding invitations. As well, take a look online as there are some great suppliers that can offer beautiful designs at a more affordable price than what fully custom pieces would cost. You may even decide to DIY your invitations. Either way, following these tips will ensure the perfect invitations for your wedding.
