Invitations You Need Before the Wedding

Several events are held before the wedding, so it’s essential to include details such as the location, date, time, and dress code. However, fitting this information for all of these events in one single invitation card can make it look busy. So, it is better to print separate cards for each event. Here are some of the invitation cards that you might need to print if you plan to have these events:

  • Invitation to an engagement party
  • Save-the-date card
  • Bridal shower invitations
  • Bridal shower thank-you cards
  • Invitation to a bachelor/bachelorette party
  • Invitation to a rehearsal dinner
  • Invitation to a welcome dinner
