Making the perfect wedding invitation is one of the first challenges a couple encounters when preparing for the wedding. Unlike the dress or the cake or the beautiful reception, this one has to shake hands with the guests months prior to the actual wedding day. This is why many couples spend plenty of time getting all the details right.
But before you jump into hiring a graphic designer or choosing between vellum or pearlescent paper for your invitation card, you must first determine the right timeline. How long should the design and printing take? When should you send them out so that your guests get enough notice? Getting the timeline right is crucial before you should get to design specifics.
There are two important considerations for your design: (a) aesthetics and (b) cost. Good design means something that married both without compromising the quality of the product. You also have to take into account the right printing option that meets these criteria. Good printing adds character to your cards' character and can be customized to create the kind of impression you want to make.
Oftentimes, it's the little questions that can bother you. Should you use recycled paper? Opt for an embossed design? What information should be including in the invitation?
Selecting your colors can be worth days of decision making, and sometimes, last-minute changes really do matter. It's little things like these that can take a whole lot of your time, and that's something to keep in mind all the time.
These questions and concerns, although seemingly small, make all the difference at the end of the day. In the following infographic, all these wedding-invitation details are presented in a coherent manner to help you answer these questions and guide you in getting started with creating the perfect wedding card.
