A mistake on the address or other pertinent information can require expensive reprints. Do not order an invitation that does not match the style of the wedding or that gives the wrong impression. The number of invitations you send will depend on the number of guests that are being invited. Make a list of all the people both the bride and groom want to invite. Break the numbers down into single people and couples or families. Each group of people being invited should only be sent one invitation.
Wedding invitations are different from invitations that are bought for birthdays. They let guests know about the wedding and give an important preview about the style of the event. Invites come in a few basic varieties that say something different about each wedding. Typical invitations are small and somewhat plain cards with information about the couple and wedding day included. More couples are using photo cards that show off the couple's engagement photos. There are cards that look like greeting cards and cards that are complex with different shapes and accented styling. Each card works for specific kinds of weddings.
