A lot of customs have changed over the years but of course there are still guidelines for proper wedding etiquette. Fortunately for today’s brides, even the most traditonal wedding invitations can now have an element of personal flair!
Wedding invitations serve the vital purpose of announcing your upcoming nuptials and asking friends, family and loved ones to join you in celebrating this life event. There are several pieces to the invitation package, depending on the size and timing of your wedding. For example, if the wedding is more than six months away but at a busy time of year, like around a holiday, you may want to mail a “Save the Date” card early so that guests can plan appropriately. For formal sit-down dinner receptions with menu choices that must be completed in advance, the RSVP card and self-addressed, stamped return envelope are absolutely critical.
Beyond the functional aspect of the invitations, they express your own unique style and personality as a couple-to-be. Today’s wedding stationery options come in a multitude of paper colors, envelopes with lining, some-assembly-required layered invitations with ribbons and bows, and more. Beyond hearts and flowers, modern design accents such as polka dots and stripes will add a very hip twist to the traditional wedding invitation.
