The big day is approaching and you need to choose wedding invitations that make an impact on your guests. When friends and families receive your invitation in the mail, you want them to smile upon opening the envelope. A great invitation will stand out in their minds and prompt them to save the date. Guests will get excited about the event as the perfect wedding invitations should inspire such feelings. When designing your wedding invitations, define your wedding style. The invitation is the first glimpse of your wedding_to_be that guests will see. In addition to listing the location and time of the wedding, the invitation should give off subtle hints as to the formality of the event. If your event is formal and elegant, so should be your wedding invitations.
One of the most important aspects about your invitations should be legibility. You want to make sure your guests can read the writing. Consider this when choosing a font in contrasts with colors and patterns. For instance, avoid light ink on light backgrounds and vice versa. Your text should pop off the paper when guests are reading. Be careful when choosing overly scripted typefaces. Word your invitations eloquently with listing whoever is hosting your wedding first. Traditionally, this would be the parents of the bride. Make sure to spell everything out, including the date and time of the event. You can even give your wedding invitations a traditional feel by adding a request line after the host's name.
