Tips On Wedding Invitation Etiquette

A Wedding is very special and so is your wedding invitation. In addition to serving the all-important purpose of inviting guests to your celebrations, your wedding invitation serves to offer a peek-a-boo into your wedding style, the vibes, the aesthetics, arrangements and level of formality. Therefore, it is important that you get your wordings right. There are a good deal of styles and writings you can consider for your invitation card. You can even match the style, font, and paper of your invitations - at any cost; keep your wordings clear, precise and direct. Be sure not to botch up the wordings.

You should be extra careful when addressing your invitation cards. There are numerous ways of addressing an invitation. However, the most important thing to be considered when addressing an invitation is to include the full names of the bride and groom apart from the names of those hosting the event and a “request line”. You can keep your line formal, cool or casual, depending on the mood and verve of your celebrations. You can also add a small twist to traditional ideas by thinking out of the box and coming up with exciting ideas.

Sending The Invitations
Want to update your colleague, family, friends and kith and kin about your nuptial arrangements? Well, what better way than to mail them an invitation. However, if you are wondering about the right time to break the good news, then sending a wedding invitation card six weeks before the ceremony would be ideal. However, if you have guests listed from all across the globe, then sending an invitation 10-12 weeks prior to your D-Day should work for you. You can have more leeway if you can mail save-the-date cards before sending the actual invite.

Spell check
One of the major goof ups you would definitely like to evade is botching up the spelling of the bride or groom or worse, the guest himself. Pay special attention to the spellings before you get your invitations printed. Make sure that the names of your guests are spelt correctly. After all, you wouldn’t really like to spell Mr. James as Mr. Hames and then face embarrassment later.
