The journey of a dream like wedding starts with the perfect wedding invitation card. These days designer cards are the trend. However, it is a must to have this checklist ready before you meet your card maker-
- Firstly, visualize your wedding card in your mind. This gives the basic foundation that you then work on with the card maker.
- Then, write down the specifications you desire on your wedding card.
- Communicate these specifications clearly to your card maker.
- Discuss and be open to new ideas from the card maker, since they are well versed in the field.
The first step in connecting with people for your wedding is through the wedding invitations. These make the first impression of how grand or subtle the wedding will be. Search on Google and you will be flooded with designs and information on wedding invites. Still confused? Worry not! We have put together some things to consider while crafting your wedding invite-
Sort out your head: You see wedding cards and you go crazy with the kind of variety available. So first, you need to figure out what kind of wedding you want, big or intimate. This will determine how your card will look. Go through the wedding invite templates at the card maker’s to get an idea.
Go online: These days you have the option of creating wedding invites from the comfort of your home. Scores of websites offer this service, wherein you can choose the theme, language, font, etc., of your wedding invite. It can also be sent to your guests online!
Select the font: The kind of font you use determines the beauty of the wedding invite. Sit with the card maker and look at the kind of fonts he can use, while looking for the one that resonates best with you. The list of font choices is vast, so take your pick wisely.
Factor in the theme: Have you planned for a theme wedding? Make sure that theme runs through your wedding invitation card too. For example, if it is a flower theme wedding, you can get the same flowers printed on the card. The guests should know, that if the card looked so beautiful, the venue would definitely be awesome!
User friendly: Your wedding card must be user friendly, meaning, it must not be bulky like a hardbound book. The features you want to incorporate in your card must not make it look heavy. However, it can be ornate and heavy, if the card can be used by the guest for decorative purposes after the wedding. Similarly, if the wedding celebrations would continue for days with many events planned, don’t have separate single pages for all. You don’t want the guest to open the card and run to collect all the scattered pages!
