Wedding invitations are one of the most important wedding decisions. Not only do they notify your guests of your impending wedding, if chosen carefully they can also inform your guests about: The style of you wedding (formal or casual), Your wedding locale (destination_wedding, local wedding, church, park, etc.), Your personal style (contemporary or traditional) Color scheme, and The theme of your wedding, if you have one. Wedding invitations also vary in price point from very expensive to quite reasonable. You'll want to choose them with care, so that you get the best invitation possible at your price point. The pricepoint of your wedding invitations will depend on quite a few things including:
Make sure to not crowd the card by only listing top priority points on the wedding invitation. These points include the time, place, hosts, names of the bride and groom, and RSVP details. If you want, you can also include the dress code for the ceremony, but you do not have to. When you try to put too much information on the invitation, it can get hard to read and look chaotic. Make sure to never list gift registry information on your wedding invitations. This bit of info should only ever be listed on your wedding website. It is not respectable to put these sort of details on your invites under any circumstance.
