There are few events more stressful to plan than a wedding, and each step of the way it seems like there’s a learning curve. One task that most people aren’t very familiar with is the process of sending out the wedding invitations. After all, most of us have been using social media and text messaging as our primary mode of communication when it comes to event planning for as long as we can remember. However, once you’ve gone through the grueling process of writing and revising your guest list, finding the perfect venue and setting the date, you should be able to throw together your wedding invites with ease.
Choose Your Color Palette
The first thing you want to make sure you have decided upon with your fiance before you can start designing your wedding invites is your wedding palette. This is usually a set of two primary colors and one or two tertiary colors that will be referenced thematically throughout both your wedding ceremony and the reception. Your wedding invites aren’t just a way for you to ask people to save the date, you are giving them their first glimpse into the vibe you will be setting for your wedding.
Choose A Font
The second most important aspect of your wedding’s aesthetic is going to the be the font. You will have all kinds of written decorations, name cards, and other text based elements to your wedding. In order to unify the whole ceremony, you want to find just one or two fonts that will be used throughout. Some couples even create websites for their weddings to keep guests informed about directions, gift registry, weather reports, etc. In this case, you will want to choose fonts for your printed wedding invites that can also be used online on your website.
Compare Quality And Pricing Online
Consumer responsive platforms like Yelp are going to be your best friend throughout the entire process of planning your wedding. You want to do a thorough search online for the best wedding invitations printers at the best prices and look at samples of their previous work. It’s always best to read the comments left by previous customers, and make sure that good ratings are based on high volumes of reviews.
Allow People To RSVP Online
These days everyone is very busy, and no one likes to go to the post office. Furthermore, no one keeps a supply of stamps, and a lot of millennials these days don’t even know how to address and envelope. If you want to make sure that you get all of your RSVP’s in an accurate and timely fashion, then you want to provide a way for your guests to RSVP online. If possible, you should also give them the option of disclosing any dietary restrictions so that you can accommodate.
