Save the date, bridal showers invites and wedding invitations



When choosing your wedding stationary from save the date cards to bridal shower invites to the invitation itself, keep the style and ambiance of your wedding consistent. If you've always dreamed of a formal church wedding with cathedral length veil and train, then it wouldn't make sense to have light and frothy invitations designed. And the reverse is true, a beach wedding at sunset is more informal and needs wedding stationary that reflects that informality.

Wedding invitations aren't a major cost of a wedding when compared to catering, bridal gown, or even the wedding cake. Many people keep the invitations as a keepsake, so splurge a little. Most brides send a save the date card as soon as the wedding date is finalized, even if the location and other details aren't worked out yet. That card can be followed by the wedding invitation including the RSVP card and perhaps a menu selection card as well with return envelopes.

The wedding program is handed out at the wedding itself. While it doesn't have to be identical with the invitations the program should be in the same style and colors. And finally the couple's thank you cards should be consistent as well.

A memorable wedding starts with the wedding stationary.

These are certain things where spending good money is good idea. Because people will impress by these cards only.

Invitation card will show to other people how good or cheerful the wedding day. But it is not the major aspects in wedding days. Sometimes with a simple wedding invitaion card also can give a big suprise on how the ceremony would be happen...

Yes, the invitation cards actually represent the theme of any wedding, and I guess they should be made accordingly.

Also, we should look to save as much money as possible even on weddings invitations.

Nice info.

I haven't even heard of a wedding date card! But now that I think about it, it is a good idea, in addition to regular invitations. Thanks for this tip!

My friend who's getting married within the next year thought of not using quality stationary! I would definitely show her this post to change her mind
