Will you settle for a ready_made template? Or, will you create a specially_designed, customized wedding card? If you want to create something unique, then you must plan in advance _ at least 2ι months in advance. You can also consider ready_made wedding invitations templates, which are stocked by reputed wedding invitation printers. Will some wedding guests come from faraway places? If yes, send them a simple invite a couple of months in advance just to ensure that they do not make any plans around the time of your wedding. You can state in this plain Jane card that a formal wedding invitation will follow. Wedding invitations must include a booklet (that fits into a pocket) that lists a schedule of events. Such booklets help the guests know what's coming next at them. However, do not make this a very wordy affair _ you don't want the guest to keep flipping through the pages trying to find some find information while an important ceremony is going on.
Photo invitation _ Invitations with the engaged couple's photograph are a touching way to invite others to your wedding. There are a variety of ways that photographs can be incorporated into the wedding invitations. Some invitations include a full color photograph of the bride and groom. Others use a black and white, low contrast (or "watermarked") photograph. With the full color photographs, you will have to put the invitation's wording on a separate panel so that it will be clearly visible. If you choose the low contrast photography, the writing can appear either on a separate panel or over top of the photograph.
