With so many different styles and options to choose from, I can see how choosing the perfect Wedding Invitation can become somewhat of a challenge.
But as your Invitations set the tone for your day you’ll want to get it right!
So here are a few tips to consider that will help you to decide on the perfect Invitation…
1. CONSIDER YOUR STYLE
As the Invitation is your guests’ first peek of your day, you’ll need to have an idea of the style of Wedding you’re going for before you choose your Invitations, this way you’ll be able to choose an Invitation that perfectly reflects your Wedding style.
Typical words my Clients use to describe the style of their day are: classic, elegant, glam, modern, vintage, formal, black tie etc.
Once you have a style in mind you’ll also find it much easier to narrow down a choice of Invitation Designers that reflect your style.
2. SHAPE & SIZE
The traditional size of a Wedding Invite is 4.5” x 6.25” but who says you have to be traditional?
These days Wedding Invitations come in all sorts of modern shapes and sizes.
Which is great, as this allows you to add individuality to your Invites just by choosing a different size or shape.
3. MAKE IT LEGIBLE
When considering the actual design of your Wedding Invitation, don’t forget to make sure that the text is legible.
Avoid light inks on White or light backgrounds, and similarly dark inks on dark backgrounds.
Pastel colours are quite difficult to read so if you are going with those then make sure the background contrasts enough for the wording to stand out.
Avoid choosing hard to read fonts.
I generally don’t use Calligraphy/Scripted fonts for all the text on an invite because whilst they are gorgeous, they can be difficult to read.
Also, a font that’s too small can make reading your Invitation difficult – especially for older Guests.
There are so many different styles of Invitations available which can make choosing the perfect Wedding Invitation difficult, but remember the perfect style of Invitation for you is one that reflects you and your day!
