Date, time and location _ Traditionally on formal wedding invitations the numbers and time were spelled out e.g. "The fifteenth of April two thousand and fourteen at one thirty in the afternoon". The design of your wedding theme will dictate whether the numbers in the date and time are spelled out or left in numeric form. With modern wedding invitations the latter is becoming the norm. The location of the wedding ceremony follows the date and can appear before the time. The reception location then follows. An example of typical date, time and location layouts could be: St Oliver Plunket Church, Boora, Co. Offaly at 1ᛆ in the afternoonCelebrations to follow at Dooley's hotel Birr.or
Calligraphy. This handcrafted invitation is elegant and refined but needs to be done by a skilled calligrapher who may be difficult to find. You can also look for a printer who creates the look of calligraphy on printed invitations. Obviously, the printed calligraphy is more affordable than the hand_written calligraphy but may not be as elegant as the hand_written one. Once you have decided on your wedding invitations, make sure you order all the wedding stationery you will need, such as response cards and thank you cards, together for uniformity. Choosing your wedding invitations should be an exciting and fun task in preparation for your big day. Keep in mind some of the ideas discussed above and choosing your invitations will be a bit easier.
