Yay! You’ve finally set a date for the big day. You have your venue and your menu and now it’s time to get down to business! Well, all aspects of planning a wedding require business as usual, but there are certain tasks that are more enjoyable than others and once you get those big decisions locked down the fun can begin and that starts with creating your wedding invitations!
Wedding invitations are a huge piece of the planning puzzle. Based on your guest list and rsvp responses this is what will ultimately determine the headcount which is huge because that effects EVERYTHING - from the food, to the cake, and of course the wedding favors. So, you certainly can’t skip out on the invites like you could on say, a professional photographer or an open bar. With that said, where do you start when it comes to creating your wedding invitations?
There are so many options these days, whether it be homemade, a local designer, or a big box store - you have choices, but the one alternative that’s universal and well-rounded is choosing to create your personalized wedding invitations online.
So, you ask… “How do I create the perfect wedding invitation?” It’s super easy! All you have to do is find a stationery website, choose a design, and then edit it however you would like. Make sure that whatever site you choose they give you the ability to customize. This is key to creating the perfect wedding invitation… you want to be sure to make it your own!
Uploading one of your favorite engagement photos as the backdrop of your design is a simple way to create a unique look and a personal feel. If you are going for something a bit more classic simply use your wedding colors as inspiration or your location as a theme. The best way to create that perfect invitation is to make it a representation of you and your soon-to- be. Just be sure you put the time and place of your wedding and triple check that all aspects of your design are clear and cohesive.
One final tip, if you can get help from an online designer assistance program from your stationery site - that is huge. When an expert is willing to help make your dreams come true - let them! Ultimately, nothing beats one-of- a-kind so get to customizing!
