I just completed the design and mailing of an exquisite invitation – A very remarkable fusion of silk, ultra luxe papers, peacock feathers and fine jeweled embellishments to complete the look.  Each guest on my client’s list was special and received a complete silk invitation suite including the formal wedding invitation card mounted on 100% silk dupioni with a keepsake gold foiled wedding bookmark.  Each invitation ensemble also included a custom response card,  a private wedding itinerary card, travel reminder and of course a complimenting reception card.

One of the things I enjoyed the most about this particular design is the exceptional taste of my client.  The bride and groom also hired Event House to complete the entire mailing of each box invitation.  Like every order we receive at Event House, my team and I worked hard to ensure we exceeded our client’s expectations.  Go E|H team!

The selection of a formal wedding invitation should be carefully completed.  I am guessing if you are a bride or a wedding professional assisting a bride and groom, you are also big on etiquette or at least would want to fulfill all etiquette guidelines.  Regardless, be sure the wedding invitations ordered reflect the couple’s true style and taste.

I have highlighted the top features of a formal wedding invitation below.  If you need any further assistance getting your invitation design project completed, you are welcome to leave a comment or ask a question.  I would love to help.

Top Features of a Formal Wedding Invitation:

1. Color – Traditional wedding invitations are typically white, ivory or ecru (also known as a natural or soft ivory color).

2. Size – The sizes of traditional wedding invitations are approximately 5 by 7 with a finished size of 5.5 by 7.5 when inserted into an envelope.

3. Printing Method – A traditional wedding invitation is usually engraved or thermographed (a more popular option now). To learn more printing methods, you may reference my blog post “Top 3 Invitation Printing Methods”

4. Ink –  The most traditional wedding invitation is printed in black ink.

5. Wording – A traditional wedding invitation is usually issued in the third person.

I have provided a sample wording of a formal wedding invitation issued by the Bride’s Parents below:

Mr. and Mrs. Harry Windsor
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Elizabeth Anne
to
Edward Albert Thomas
Saturday, the fifth of June
Two thousand nine
at half after four o’clock in the afternoon
First Baptist Church

A wedding is a unique celebration like no other event in a person’s lifetime and the wedding invitation sets the tone for this special occasion. Besides making the couple’s engagement announcement formal, the wedding invitation also builds the anticipation for the couple’s debut as Mr. and Mrs. and sets the stage for the many elements of the wedding day. The selection of the perfect wedding invitation is very important and for some – almost as important as the dress.

I have met brides that skipped many traditional wedding elements to satisfy the need for “The Perfect Invitation”.  Now I believe that every bride is unique and distinguished in her own way and no two brides are the same but I also believe that every bride should invest some level of attention and detail to the selection of the appropriate wedding invitation.  I don’t say this because I am a professional wedding invitation designer but I say this because I’ve been a bride (now a wife and mom) and looking back, I am glad I invested some level of attention to this stage of my wedding plans.

I have also had many brides say – Why invest anything on what guests will simply read and throw away in minutes?  I simply reply this way – “selecting the perfect invitation is simply investing in your memories – sweet memories you can draw from as the days and years go by“.  You only get one chance to be this age at this present time to get married – would you want to look back many years from now or even months from now and wish you had truly gotten what you wanted?  Now I am an avid believer in planning and producing a wedding within your means, so please don’t mistake getting what you truly want to going over your means but simply put, every detail of your special day is just as important – your wedding invitations should not be overlooked or neglected – regardless of your budget.

Cheers!
