Know what colors your wedding is themed around. This should not be a problem for brides but if the groom is taking on the task of ordering the invitations, he should definitely collaborate with the bride or the maid_of_honor to ensure no mistakes are made. It would be a travesty if the wedding colors are pink and mint green and the invitations are ordered as lime green and coral.
Furthermore, you may choose to embellish your invitations with elements like buttons and stitching in place of the ribbon. Whimsical embellishments such as these give your wedding a personalized feel, romantic look, and can be an excellent first introduction of your wedding to each of your guests. Hand tying ribbons as well as hand_stitching threads and buttons to your invitations are also great representations of your devotion to each other and can be evident to each invited guest.
