Wedding invites must be very inviting and must give a "welcome" feel to the reader. Design and copy play a big role in working their magic on readers. So, you must ensure that you choose a very inviting design and that the copy is written by a professional who has experience in writing invitations for weddings. Sure, it'll cost you money _ but then you get married only once (in most cases) in your life. All wedding invites must stay true to their respective wedding themes. Are you having a Cinderella wedding, or a Disney wedding, or a completely religious wedding, a whimsical wedding, or some other type of wedding? It is important that your invitation must reflect the theme of your special day. Thematic templates are available with a few reputed invitation suppliers.
Children are not invited to the wedding: This is very difficult indeed and again should not be mentioned on the invitation. Invitees should actually realise that if their children aren't mentioned by name on the invitation then they're not invited but they probably won't. Friends of the bride and groom may not appreciate that you don't look on their little darlings quite as they do but be firm. Friends with children should be telephoned and politely told that children cannot be catered for. If they are offended, then that's unfortunate.
