What to include in your wedding invitation
Invitations should convey a few critical bits of information to your guests, starting with the names of the bride and groom and their hosts. Guests will also need to know the date and time of the event and information about the venue. Optional information can include appropriate attire, reception details, directions, or a location map.
Options for printed wedding invitations
Set the tone with your wedding invitation
As your first touchpoint with your guests, wedding invitations are an excellent way to preview your wedding’s theme. You can also use invitations to bring some personality to your big day, from bold, splashy images to uniquely creative designs. Looking for something more traditional? Classic invitations with minimal imagery and elegant scripts offer a timeless feel and are coming back.
When to mail
A good rule of thumb is to get invitations in the mail 6-8 weeks from the event or 10 weeks out for guests traveling overseas.
Other wedding essentials
There are other stationery items a bride will need to consider, including save the dates, menus, programs, placeholders, and thank-you cards. You can use postcards to complete these tasks. Choose from single- or double-sided versions in various options, including size, color, and paperweights.
You can also print a photo poster of the lucky couple to place by the guest book or even create signage to help guests get around your venue.
