It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the ton of details you have to think over for your wedding preparations. There’s the wedding cake, the reception, the dress, and the seemingly endless particulars that require every bit of your focus and attention. Fortunately, you don’t have to fall into the panic trap.
One of the first parts of your wedding preparation process—and perhaps one where you’d most likely be tempted to overthink—is the wedding invitation. Ideally, the invitation is sent months prior to the big day and therefore must make a great first impression. Because it’s guests’ initial peek of the wedding, it just may be worth your while to give it a good thought.
For something as small as a wedding invitation, you’d be surprised by the amount of detail it involves. Among these, your most important priorities include (a) the timeline, or how long before the wedding date should you send out the invitation cards; b) the design so that it meets your aesthetic preference and allotted budget; and (c) the available printing options, which type of paper fits your style, and how to assemble the whole suite. The challenge is in coming up with something that is not just pretty but also one that does the job without breaking your budget.
Before all the questions start to overwhelm you, take a look at this handy, comprehensive guide with all these priorities laid out in clear detail, along with a few tips on what to and what not to do while on the process of selecting your wedding invitation. With these in mind, you should be ready to make a wedding invitation card that you can be proud of.
