The invitations you choose for your wedding are your guest's' first impression of your wedding style. Their content is important and essential.
There are two things you need to remember. the time and necessary details to send your wedding invitation.
Whether you're still looking for wedding invitation options or you've already found your design, make sure you follow the rules and follow the right steps. This will ensure that your guests have all the necessary information in advance.
If you are not sure where to start, read our tips.
1. Send the wedding invitations early
Make sure you give your guests plenty of time to plan and prepare for the wedding day.
Send the invitations 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding.
2. Include all required information
You can have a beautiful invitation design, but ultimately it will be ignored if it has incomplete information.
With that, simplicity is key. Make sure you include the following:
- Names of the bride and groom
- Date and time of the wedding
- Ceremony and Reception Venue(s)
- Start time
If you have additional information to share, such as directions, parking, and possible lodging options before or after the ceremony, you should include that in the invitation as well.
3. Don't use abbreviations
When it comes to creating the content of your wedding invitation, be sure to pay attention to the wording. One key tip is that you should write all words in a formal format.
Even if the wedding is a little less formal, invitations should follow this simple rule.
4. Address guests correctly
Addressing your guests properly is a key part of the invitation and is probably the first thing they will see when they open it.
Although addressing your guests may seem like a fairly simple task, it is one of the most common mistakes. Use your guest's full name whenever possible, but if you're unsure about a middle name, avoid using it altogether.
5. Specifying who is invited
Let your guests know whether or not children are invited by addressing them in the invitation. Explicit names on the invitation will imply that children are not invited and that the wedding is "adults only"
We hope these tips will help you provide your guests with the most accurate information possible.
