Wedding invitation is simply a letter written to the recipient inviting them to a wedding. It’s typically written in the third person, formal language, and sent out at least five to seven weeks before the intended wedding date. It should also indicate the location of the event, time, and place. You can find wedding invitations online or you can get creative and make your own. Some examples of wedding invitations, you may find online are invitations to a backyard BBQ, beach wedding, or a cruise.
Engraving: One of the most traditional methods of incorporating a design into wedding invitations is through engraving. Invented in the 12th century, engraving has been used for centuries for creating inscriptions and on different kinds of stationery. It’s not uncommon to see a bride and groom engrave their names on their invitations. Today, modern engravers can produce beautiful text that would be impossible to do if it was hand-written.
Response Cards: These are probably the most common type of wedding invitation. Responsive cards are simply a series of cards that guests are expected to respond to with a response card or a thank you card. Responses are due at the reception. You can make them easy to fill out by including an “RSVP” response card with an insert that holds the name of the guest, address, phone number, email address, and email address on it. Service Tickets: This is another way of thanking your guests for attending your wedding ceremony. Service tickets generally show a seating chart of those who have attended the ceremony. They can also include directions to the ceremony as well as a map showing the route to the church.
Wedding invitations are typically sent through the mail to all of your guests with separate envelopes for each person. These envelopes will contain a set of main pieces of information such as names, addresses, and a message. You may also add an RSVP request. For most formal weddings, couples may also include a request for any flowers or gifts that need to be brought to the ceremony. In the case of an informal big day, you can send your guests an “invitation” which will usually be a plastic envelope. With today’s sophisticated technology, it is also possible to include digital signatures on these envelopes.
