One of the biggest decisions you will have to make is what kind of wedding invitations to buy. Your wedding invitations will set the mood of your wedding. They not only make your guests aware of your upcoming nuptials, but they will also set the tone for the type of event you are planning by unconsciously saying if the wedding will be formal or informal.
If you are planning a formal, black tie event, you should choose an invitation that is plain white or ecru with black ink. If you are having a themed wedding, incorporate that theme into your wedding invitations. For example, if you are having a beach-themed wedding, select a wedding invitation with shells, a lighthouse, or a couple walking along the beach. Don’t forget to incorporate your wedding colors into your invitations. This can be achieved by selecting a colored ink or colored lining or an invitation that contains accents from your wedding colors.
You should begin shopping for your wedding invitations 4-6 months before your wedding date. Check your local stationery shops and printers to see what kind of invitations they have to offer. You will most likely pay a premium price for wedding invitations locally.
