Wedding days are special occasions that will forever be etched in the minds and hearts of married couples. The invitation is one of the things that are first made and prepared because this is the one that tells all the friends and relatives about the good news. Furthermore, wedding invites are considered as the guests’ mementos of this wonderful occasion.
There are many styles of invitations available in many stores online and in the local shops. But before the couple decides what style is the best, there are a few reminders to consider. First, think about the wedding theme and motif. The wedding theme, if it’s a semi-formal or formal wedding, should be reflected on the wedding invitation aside from being indicated in words. Next is to take in consideration the wording and the amount of space of paper needed so the invitation wouldn’t appear crowded with words and letters.
The following styles of wedding invitations are the most commonly used by many planners and engaged couples: Engraved invitation style, calligraphed style, thermographed style, printed style, and hand colored invitation style. In engraved invites, the paper will be stamped leaving an imprint on the invitation paper. Ink will be applied to the indentation and then dried. Engraving is a difficult and expensive process but this style is the most common invitation style of formal weddings.
Calligraphy brings out a sophisticated and elegant wedding invite style but this style is a little inconvenient because calligraphies easily smudge since they aren’t waterproof. Thermographed invites are good alternative to engraved invites since they are cheaper but give out the same effects with the engraved style. Printed invitation style is the most common of all styles of wedding invitations. They are cheap and they can come in many different print designs that can be formal or personal also. Hand colored style allows the engaged couple to add a personal and creative touch to their invitations.
A perfect wedding starts with a perfect invite. Choosing the best style will surely help the wedding be a lot more memorable not only to the married couple but to their wedding guests as well.
No matter the style of invite cards you select, the most important thing is to think of the vibe you are going for in your wedding, and select all your wedding purchases based on that. Go with your gut and you won’t go wrong when making your purchases!
