WHY ARE WEDDING INVITATIONS IMPORTANT?

Wedding invitations often don’t get the attention or budget that they deserve – admittedly I am quite biased on this subject but hear me out. They are often at the bottom of the list when it comes to planning and all focus goes on the day itself.

As a couple, your wedding day is one of the most special and significant days of your life and a wedding invitation can reflect and remind people of this. It is the premise to your day, the first impression given to your loving family and friends. It sets the tone and hopefully builds excitement. And gives your guests an insight into what the big day will hold.

And there really is something about receiving a beautifully designed, printed wedding invitation in the post that signifies that this is an important event!

WRITING YOUR WEDDING INVITATIONS

Make sure you put plenty of time aside for writing your invite, you’ll be amazed at how difficult it is do decide what to say! The sentimental stuff is all well and good but it is vital that information such as location, times and other significant details are incorporated to help your guests plan their day. People may be traveling lengthy distances and will appreciate your thoughtfulness in notifying them in advance. If you help them to have a good day then everything should fall into place nicely!
