When couples, particularly the brides, begin to go through the large albums of wedding invitations, some of them start to realise that their budget limits them to the type of wedding invitations that they have always dreamed about. As such, many couples find themselves contemplating whether or not they should make their wedding invitations themselves, or whether they should hire a professional to design and print the invitations for them.
For your guests the wedding invitations are the most important part in the lead up to your wedding. The information they receive helps them decide on their outfits and allows them to make the necessary arrangements to attend. Many guests may have to travel a long distance and therefore it is appropriate to include directions and a list of accommodation. This is additional information which is not included on the wedding invitation but rather on a separate card included in the wedding stationery pack sent to the guests. The norm is to include a map and directions to both the venues for the ceremony and reception, and a list of accommodation including hotels and bed and breakfast providers.
