Weddings are a very special time, when two people in love start their new life together. If you are planning your wedding you know there is much more to preparing than meets the eye. A bride has many tasks to take care of, the dress, the flowers, and the invitations to name a few. Wedding invitations are just as much a part of the planning process as any other task. Here are some important things to keep in mind when selecting your invitations.
Color: Wedding colors should be incorporated into the invitations. Choosing colors for a wedding can be a difficult task, but once chosen they are the colors that will be attached to the wedding ceremony, reception, flowers, dresses, everything. Continue the color choice by incorporating it right into the invitation. There is a great variety of colors available for wedding invitations, so you are sure to find a color choice that matches your wedding colors.
Theme: Wedding invitations should coincide with the theme of the wedding. Is it a spring, fall, or winter wedding? The theme of the wedding greatly depends on the time of year the wedding is held. There are some wonderful selections for spring and summer weddings that incorporate flowers and natural elements right into the invitation. For fall or winter weddings there are many varieties that include luscious fall colors, or cool icy winter themes.
Theme of invitation may also be incorporated to other aspects of the ceremony and the invitation. When ordering your invitations, try to order your programs and thank you notes at the same time. You’ll have a wonderful coordinating theme, and be done with the paper work.
RSVP: Ordering RSVP cards. RSVP should be ordered along with the invitations. All invitations have coordinating RSVP cards and envelopes that are sent right along with the invitation. RSVP cards can be very important for the reception. If the reception is being catered, the catering company needs a count for how much food and also how much it will cost. Seating at the reception can also be dependent on how many guests will be attending. An RSVP card is also important for booking lodging for guests.
Whatever theme, color, or style of invitation is chosen, there is an endless variety of selections. Guests will be delighted when they receive the beautiful wedding invitation. It is the time to start becoming excited for the upcoming event.
