What Type of Reception? _ You should also give an indication of what type of reception you will be having so that you guests will know what to expect food wise. So if you are planning on having a two hour cocktail party, it's a good idea to put a start and assumed finish times on the invitation; this way people will be expecting nibbles and not a full meal.
As you make your wedding invitations, stop and look. Are your graphics and decorations taking over one side while leaving the other side blank? If so, then your invitation is off_balance. You don't have to put the same things on each side, but you can make sure that each side has the same "heaviness." Shape and size. Wedding invitations come in all shapes and sizes. Invitations can be long, squared, circle, wide, top fold, side fold, accordion fold, booklet and many more. When making your own wedding cards, you may not want to choose a difficult size and shape. Otherwise, you and whomever you've asked to help you make your invitations are going to spend days just cutting, gluing and folding. Instead, choose simple shapes and sizes that you can add texture, balance, color and decorations to. This will lessen the anxiety and frustration.
