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:
Before deciding on which invitations to get, the couple needs to set their wedding budget and figure out how much is allocated for invites. Having a custom designed card will make invitations unique but it will also cost much more. Many invitation ordering websites offer basic stock invitations with the only customization being the names of the couple and the location. The size of the invitation will depend on the type of envelope that is going to be used. If there are custom envelopes to go along with the invitation, then the size and shape does not matter. But if buying envelopes different from the style or size of the invitation, pay extra attention to make sure the envelope fits.
