Once upon a time there was a simple, to the point way to follow etiquette in planning all things wedding. These days it isn’t so easy to plan your wedding without hitting at least one sticky situation. You may not even think about proper wedding invitation wording until you sit down to select and order your invitations. The American Wedding will walk you through the process of choosing the perfect wedding invitation wording for you, step by step, as you design your personalized invitations. Here is a step by step guide to creating your perfect wedding invitations at The American Wedding.
First, think about the theme of your wedding. What is the feeling you want to promote with your wedding invitation design? Do you want it to make your guests think light, airy and springlike things? Do you want your wedding invitation to exhibit the commitment and faith of you and your future spouse? This will help you decide what categories you want to browse. You may decide to choose your invitations by color to match the rest of your wedding or you may choose an invitation that represents the two of you as a couple. You may like your invitations to be classic both in design and wording, or you may prefer something more contemporary or informal. Do you want a single layered, flat invitation or a layered, custom colored design? Whatever design you choose keep in mind that your wedding invitation cannot possibly represent every aspect of your wedding. That would be like expecting one snapshot to tell your entire life story. Choose an invitation that best represents your theme or you and your fiance as a couple.
You can request a free sample of a few of your favorite invitations from the American Wedding to help you decide on the perfect design.
After you have chosen the basic design for your wedding invitation it is time to start the fun part. Now you get to customize and personalize your invitation. Many invitations are available in a few different colors so you will have to choose the colors you want for your custom invitations. You may also need to choose the colors for backings if you are getting layered invitations. You will have to choose any ribbons or other embellishments that are available as well. If the invitation you love requires assembly but you do not have the time to assemble 100 wedding invitations on top of the rest of your to do list, don’t worry. The American Wedding will now assemble your wedding invitations for you for a small fee.
