Custom wedding invitations – are they right for you?
Let’s face it, when it comes to wedding invitations there are so many different ways to invite people to your wedding! For many couples, it’s about easy-of-use. They would much rather send everything electronically either through a wedding website or an Evite service. For some couples getting the DIY printable kits from Michaels are a great option or going through an online dealer where they can purchase cost-effective templates works too! But for other couples they can’t picture inviting their friends and family any other way than with beautiful, custom wedding invitations. Are you considering custom wedding invitations or aren’t really sure which format works best for you? Here are a few reasons why custom wedding invitations could be the best option for you:
Having a designer create your invitations isn’t only about having unique invitations, it’s also about the expertise and guidance a designer can provide. Often times couples don’t know where to start. Your designer can educate you on the different sizes, paper options and insert pieces available and make suggestions based on your specific wedding. A designer can also provide insight into the etiquette for wording, RSVP deadlines etc., which can massively decrease your stress level when planning your entire wedding (which is sometimes well worth the extra money!).
Your love is unique, your wedding is unique and your invitations should be unique. If you’ve scavenged the Internet and haven’t been able to find templated invitations that fit your tastes or requirements, hiring a designer could be your solution.
For some couples, it’s all about the details. Does the colour on the invitations perfectly match the bridesmaid dresses? Or perhaps you require a bilingual wedding invitation to match both of your cultural backgrounds? Perhaps you need two versions of the invitation for guests coming just to the ceremony and the ceremony and reception. Each couple has their own requirements and a designer can accommodate those requirements with ease.
Custom wedding invitations also help with the brand of the wedding. From the invitations to the table numbers, to the menu and seating charts, a designer will assist in maintaining a cohesive look for your big day.
With everything that you have to plan for the big day, sometimes you don’t have time to DIY every detail. After the initial consultation, a designer will go to work putting together all of the details. Generally speaking, the only commitment required of the couple is the approval process (saying yes, to that beautiful calligraphy).
