Your wedding invitation will set the tone for your entire wedding. It will tell your guests how formal or casual your wedding will be, really giving them a sneak peek into your big day. It is customary in a formal wedding invitation to spell out everything, including the date and time of the wedding. For example, the invite should read Five o’clock in the evening not 5:00 p.m. You invite can be worded and arranged in countless ways to reflect the style of the occasion and the changing times.
Also be sure that your wedding invitations provide your guests with the information they will need. Include names of wedding hosts, names of bride and groom, day of the week, date, time, address of the ceremony and/or reception, and RSVP information.
There are thousands of different styles, colors, paper types and ink that you can select for your invitations. All insert cards should match the colors and themes of your primary card. It’s also fun to match your menu and thank you cards. You can have your envelopes addressed to match your invitation ink color and font style.
RSVP Card: Please save yourself the time and headache of figuring out who confirmed by pre-filling out the majority of information on the RSVP card; such as the name of the guest and size of the party. That way when you receive 50 RSVP’s back stating yes or no; the name of the individual is already on the card.
Another tip: When you make your guest list, enter it alphabetically and number each entry. Place a number on the back of the response card that corresponds with the same number on the guest list. This way if your guest forgets to write their name on the response card you can just refer to your guest list and see who that card belongs to!
