Great wedding invitations and accompanying stationery (table plan, place cards, table names / numbers, wedding day schedule, signage etc.) gives your guests a flavour of what your wedding will be like, so it's fun to choose just the right colour, theme or style to reflect your upcoming special day. Also, your guests will appreciate a well designed invitation so don't forget to factor in some time and budget for this.
A few tips. Firstly, decide on what you would like your wedding stationery company to provide. Do you need your invitations to be designed and printed, or, if your budget allows, what about a more tailored service to include handmade, bespoke designs?
Make sure that the design complements your wedding theme or colour scheme (if you have one) and don't forget to include an RSVP date and a wedding website if you have one. Include options on ways to respond, too: email, phone call or letter for example.
Also, don't forget to include that all-important “information section”: details on local accommodation, directions to the venue and a gift list.
