Wedding Invitation Tips For Modern Brides
Perhaps one of the trickiest parts in planning a wedding is choosing a wedding invitation; why, because there are just so many options, hundreds in fact. Thus, getting down to just one choice is not going to be easy. Here are some tips to help narrow down your choices and eventually arrive at only one wedding invitation.
Consider first the type of wedding you want to have. You can go traditional or opt for something less conventional. Either way, there are wedding invitations suited to your type of wedding. Common features of wedding invitations for a traditional wedding are z-folded or half-folded with embossed monograms printed on ecru or white paper. Traditional wedding invitations are classic and simple, but elegant.
For a modern wedding, there are tons of wedding invitation ideas. You can use different colors to make your invitation come alive. Choose a design that goes well with your wedding theme. For a garden wedding, for instance, you can have butterflies and flowers amidst a light yellow background. For a beach wedding, sea shells washed ashore make a great background. One good thing about these modern wedding invitations is that your guests know at a glance what kind of wedding you are going to have.
Your budget should be another consideration when choosing a wedding invitation. Nowadays, wedding planners have a ready catalog of sample invitations categorized according to prices. Keep in mind that the price is often influenced by the intricacy of the design and the materials used, so if you are on a tight budget, go for something a bit simpler.
You can also make your own wedding invitations to save more. There are many software programs that can help you design your own invitations and then you can print them yourself. Remember not to use colors that are too bold, though, or designs that are too big, as these take oneâ€™s attention from the more important details of the invitation.
