Choose invitations that actually look inviting. Thick, high quality paper with bright colors or a unique design that makes the envelope stand out from other mail that may arrive on the same day. Your invitations should excite interest even before they are opened, and if you have chosen your design well, they should evoke reminders of the happy couple as well!
