If you choose not to use DIY invitations, you can always opt for designer invitations. Designer invitations will call for you to work with a professional invitation coordinator. These individuals have a lot of experience with working with couples, getting their ideas and then using those ideas to create one_of_a_kind wedding invitations. Invitation coordinators generally have albums and samples that you can look at and even touch, so that you have an idea of what your wedding invitations are going to be like. The albums that you will be shown are packed with several designs, and have a lot more options available than DIY invitations. The designs can be enhanced to better suit the ink, type and even the colour of the design. You will be able to order various samples of these designer invitations, take them home, review them and then make your final decision.
Calligraphy. Calligraphed invitations are very elegant. They work well for weddings with an old fashioned theme, but can be very expensive due to the amount of time and effort involved in producing them. Because of the expense, you might also look for a printer who creates the look of calligraphy on printed invitations. Note: When deciding on whether to choose calligraphy invitations, remember that you need to allow extra time for preparation. Keep in mind, too, that this type of invitation may smudge if it comes in contact with moisture.
