30 Jul Wedding invites, where to start?
At Quints of Jersey we know it can be daunting thinking about all the content needed for your wedding invites, let alone thinking about the style. Which is why we have put together tips on how to get started:
STEP 1: The first step to creating wedding invites is to know your date, location, timings, guest print numbers and who you would like the invitation to come from ie: bride’s parents, groom’s parents, both parents, the bride and groom? Another point to mention is that if you have for example 100 guests attending you may only need 60/ 70 printed invites as we can imagine most guests will be couples and family.
STEP 2: Consider what information you need to give your guests ie: menu options, travel info, gift info etc. The information you need to provide your guests will help determine the elements you need for your invite set.
STEP 3: Have an idea of the type of wedding that you’re aiming for ie: classic and elegant, contemporary, country the list is endless. We know it can be overwhelming looking online for a style that best represents the big day, which is why we offer a complimentary ‘Wedding Stationery Design Consultations’ which can be done over the phone, email and Skype, at this stage we discuss your theme and provide ideas in the form of presentation for your selection.
STEP 4: Aim to order your main invitations no later than four to five months before your big day. If you’re having a destination wedding or getting married over the holidays, send out your invites even earlier. Our time frame for design and print is roughly 4 weeks.
STEP 5: Don’t forget the on-the-day stationery ie: Order of service, name placements, menu cards, table plan, thank you cards etc.
