Will you settle for a ready_made template? Or, will you create a specially_designed, customized wedding card? If you want to create something unique, then you must plan in advance _ at least 2ι months in advance. You can also consider ready_made wedding invitations templates, which are stocked by reputed wedding invitation printers. Will some wedding guests come from faraway places? If yes, send them a simple invite a couple of months in advance just to ensure that they do not make any plans around the time of your wedding. You can state in this plain Jane card that a formal wedding invitation will follow. Wedding invitations must include a booklet (that fits into a pocket) that lists a schedule of events. Such booklets help the guests know what's coming next at them. However, do not make this a very wordy affair _ you don't want the guest to keep flipping through the pages trying to find some find information while an important ceremony is going on.
Engraved. This type of wedding invitation is usually very expensive and reserved for very formal weddings. Engraved invitations are usually used to announce a very traditional style of wedding. This type of invitation is costly because an engraver must first carve the image or message into a copper plate, ink the plate, and then push the plate down onto the paper. This creates the raised lettering on the paper. Because of all the steps needed to create this type of wedding invitation, this method is time consuming and you will need to wait weeks for your invitations to be ready. Embossed. Embossed invitations are very classy but also very expensive. Similar to engraved invitations, the raised print on this type of wedding invitation looks impressive but may be hard on your budget because of the technique used to create this type of invitation.
