Weddings can be an expensive business, so to reduce costs a lot of couples will try to spend less on things like invitations in order to spend more on the party. However, to have a good time, you don’t have to sacrifice the quality of your invitations.
You can still have the invitations you always dreamed of (because we’re not the only ones who dream about stationery, right?), by ordering them online from this selection of websites.
What to think about when designing your wedding invitations
Your invitations are the first indication of what your wedding will be like. They'll indicate all the things your guests will need to know, like the RSVP date, preferred attire and timings – but they also give off a few clues that you may not expect.
The colours of your invitations are often the colours that you'll have in the decor, florals and bridal party, so it helps guests avoid awkward matching mishaps. Not to mention they'll give off a vibe of how the wedding will proceed. Beachy pattern with a fun font? That's a casual wedding right there. Black and white with a serif font and gold detailing? Definitely comes across as more fancy.
Below is your checklist of what to be aware of when designing your wedding invitations:
- Colours. Use your wedding theme colours to give guests an idea of which colours to avoid (and to stick to the theme!).
- Photos. Do you want to add a cute couple photo to your invitation? It adds a personal touch.
- Font. The big question is, serif or sans serif? Handy hint: avoid Comic Sans. Nobody likes Comic Sans.
- Details. Triple check that all the dates and times (and spellings!) are correct. You don't want anyone showing up the wrong day.
- Card stock. Matte or shine, cardboard or paper? There are so many options to choose from!
- Size. Most invitations are postcard sized, but you might decide to go big or go home with a giant invite that nobody will forget!
Popular invitation trends and styles
1. Greenery and florals
Florals are always popular for weddings, but greenery is definitely making a big comeback. Some couples are even going so far as to include a sprig of lavender or rosemary in the envelope for a fresh smell upon opening!
2. Black and white
It's hard to go wrong with black and white, let's be honest. It's a staple, classy scheme for any high brow affair – and if you're not too sure about what your wedding colours are yet, it gives you more time to decide.
3. Rustic wood
Vintage and rustic weddings are all over our Instagram feeds, and it's no surprise as to why. Wooden themed invitations give your wedding an earthy, natural feel and can set you apart from the plain white stock.
4. Laser cut detailing
Some people may say simple is best, but when it comes to your wedding you can justify getting a bit extra. Laser cut detailing looks intricate and exciting, but it won't break the bank and you'd be surprised how easy it is to get!
