The wedding invitation is absolutely important in creating a good first impression on the people who are invited to the occasion. A wedding invitation is a great way to introduce the theme of your wedding and let people know of ways to participate in it.
In designing a wedding invitation, there are several considerations that need to be made as well as things that must be done. What are they? Well, read more to find out about it.
1. Pick a Theme
The theme of your wedding invitation should, of course, match the theme and concept of the wedding card printing. It is important to have a clear concept and theme for your wedding because it will give people an idea of how the wedding is going to be like and how they can participate to support the concept. With deciding on a theme, the designing process of your wedding invitation will be easier too, because you can already have an idea of what color works best for it, along with the suitable font style, printing style, and other decorations.
2. Choose Paper
There are many types of paper options for you that you can choose for your wedding invitations. However, there are at least three types of papers that are most popular, which are the heavy card stock, vellum, and cotton paper. Heavy card stock is the one that is common and most often used because it is durable. It can be used as a keepsake, and due to its quality, you won’t have to worry about it as it gets delivered through the male. Vellum is a type of paper that is translucent. This type of paper can be used as a covering for a thicker paper. But of course, this paper can be directly printed on. Cotton paper, meanwhile, is the more expensive option compared to the others. But it is elegant, beautiful, and perfect for a wedding invitation.
3. Keep the Design Simple
To make the design of your wedding invitation simple, you should make sure that you keep decorations to a minimum. Just do it enough, and not too much. Also, reducing the number of lines on the wedding invitation will make it appear better on the eyes. The content of the wedding invitation itself should be simple and only consist of information that is the most important, such as the host of the wedding, name of couple, date, time, location or address, and dress code if any.
Don’t forget the envelope for your wedding invitation. But more importantly, never forget to make sure that you write on your envelope properly, especially when it comes to the names of your guests. You can either choose to do it traditionally or digitally. Handwriting the guests’ names on the envelope gives it a more unique look, but you have to make sure that you can make it look good. If you can’t hire a calligrapher, then it is better to just do it digitally and have everything printed instead.
