· Create your design. Your invitations will all begin with a vision. It is important to take your wedding color scheme and theme into consideration in order to develop your design. You will want to create a cohesive appearance, so choosing a bright orange invitation when you are presenting a black and white chic event would probably not be the best chioce. Keep in mind how you would like your wedding to appear, and infuse that décor into your invitations. Once you have chosen your design, you can then move onto creating the finer details.
· Choose your texture. Paper comes in many forms, so you are certainly not limited to the flimsy printer paper, as that should definitely be your very last choice. Cardstock paper is a great option, as it presents a firm, yet elegant appearance. In addition to the quality of your paper, you will also want to decide if you would like a shiny, glossy finish, or a more matte look. For a rustic themed event, matte would be ideal. While a more formal wedding would best benefit from a nice shine.
· Develop your suite. In most cases, the invitation is not the only piece of stationary that is sent to your guests. You can create an invitation suite that will cover all of your stationery needs. Incorporate invitations, gift registries, RSVP cards, and any additional details that would assist your guests in attending your big day. Knowing exactly what you would like within your suite will help to better prepare you for creating yours.
Every detail, down to the invitations, is important for the creation of your big day. Here at I Thee Wed, we are ready to assist you in your planning your gorgeous wedding day.
