Many brides believe that picking their wedding invitation will be the easiest part of their wedding preparation. However, once they start to browse, they realize just how important an invitation is, and how difficult it is to select.
Your wedding invitations will signify to your guests how formal or casual your wedding will be and will set the tone for the entire wedding. This does not mean that your wedding invitation has to be highly priced. There are many beautiful invitations in all price ranges. If you go to your local printer with the proper information, it will make things much easier for you. Be sure to count your guest list. This means, count each couple as one invitation. With modern printing technology, your printer can print as many wedding invitations as you need - to the exact number - but be sure to order enough to have a few left over for those people you forgot to add to your original list. It is also a good idea to purchase extra envelopes if you intend to use a professional calligrapher. Calligraphers do make errors and you should allow for a 10% error rate. You might also try your own hand at it!
You can also choose to have your envelopes addressed to match your wedding invitation ink color and font style. When you make your guest list, enter it alphabetically and number each entry. Place a number on the back of the wedding invitation response card that corresponds with the same number on the guest list. This way if your guest forgets to write their name on the response card you can just refer to your guest list and see who that card belongs to.
Email wedding invitations have also become quite popular. There are some truly elaborate electronic wedding invitations and anything is possible, varying from static images to animation.
