There are plenty of details to be taken care of when it comes time to plan the perfect wedding. From choosing the perfect dress to finding the most delicious wedding cake, there is plenty to do. One of the most important parts of planning a wedding, however, is choosing the right wedding invitations. That is because sending out the wedding invitations and receiving the response cards is key to so much of what follows.


Until you have an accurate count of how many people will be attending the wedding it can be difficult to go forward. Without that count you will not know how large the reception hall will need to be, how many hotel rooms you will need for out of town guests or how much food to order from the caterer. Getting the wedding invitations out on time is absolutely critical to properly planning the wedding.

Of course it is not enough to simply send those wedding invitations out on time – you need to make sure those invitations reflect your taste, your style and your creativity. There are many styles of wedding invitations on the market these days, and choosing the right ones can be quite difficult. It is therefore a good idea to start the search as early as possible.


In fact many couples will start looking for the perfect wedding invitations as soon as the wedding date has been chosen. This will give them plenty of time to choose those invitations that best reflect their own unique style. With so many different wedding invitations to choose from, and so many places to buy those invitations, it always pays to start shopping early.

Quality Counts


Quality is always an important consideration when it comes to wedding invitations. The quality of the paper is an important factor, and one that should receive plenty of attention. High quality paper will make those wedding invitations look more beautiful and more elegant. Cheap paper will just make those wedding invitations look cheap. When it comes time to choose the paper it is generally best to go with the highest quality you can afford.


No matter what type of paper you choose for your wedding invitations it is a good idea to consider the type of print you want and the font you plan to use. With literally hundreds of fonts to choose from this can be a tough choice, but it is important to look at those choices carefully. It is also important to use the same font consistently throughout the entire wedding invitation, including the outside envelope, the inside envelope and the RSVP card. Using the same font and typeface for the wedding invitations will result in a pleasant looking document that is easy to read. Items of special interest, such as the location of the wedding and reception, the deadline for RSVP responses and any special instructions can be bolded, italicized or printed in a larger font, but keeping a consistent look and feel is important.
