The Art of Choosing the Right Wedding Invitation Cards
Even though it is easier to send out e-invites via social media platforms, social and wedding etiquettes still dictate that we should send out wedding invitation cards the normal way. Here is a short guide to choosing one that is most suitable for you.
The First Impression
Like most impressions, the first impression is really important. If you have good feelings about a card, listen to your gut and put it on the top of your list.
Wedding invitation cards can get quite expensive, especially if you don’t know how much you are willing to spend on it, in which case you should really set a budget and stick with it. Choose a few selections that you like and are within your budget, and narrow down your choices from there.
It is also easier to find your wedding invitation cards if you already have a set theme for your wedding. If you cannot find cards to match your exact theme, you can also find cards that match the colour of the theme instead. If none of those catches your eye, then choose from the traditional wedding colours of white, red or gold.
The timeframe to get your cards ready is also an important factor in choosing your wedding invitation cards. If you order your cards early, then it shouldn’t be difficult to find one with design that you like the most. However, if you leave it to the last minute, then choose the cards that you can get hold of quickly. Depending on the supplier, there may be different lead time to get the cards ready.
Once you have a few choices to select from, find one design that you like the most. Ask your partner or your friends and family for their opinions and go from there. Do keep in mind that not everyone will like the same design, but it is your wedding so you (and your partner) should have the final say.
