Your wedding is the best time to flex your creativity and make everything unique! If you are feeling stuck on how to make your invitations stand out, be sure to finish reading this month’s blog to learn more!
Your wedding invitation is a great way to set the tone for your wedding. Whether you have a specific theme or a certain vibe you are going for, making this clear from the start is important! If you want to express a laid back and easygoing vibe, you can include a funny comic or cartoon on your invites. Guests will be able to pick up on the over all tone.
Another way to set the tone is by placing an event timeline on your invitation. A timeline of each event and the time they will take place is a great way to show your guests that you are having a very formal and structured wedding! Your guests will be able to plan accordingly and they will enjoy having a heads up on the day’s festivities.
If you want to set the tone for a romantic theme, try putting the timeline of your relationship on the invitation! It’s a great way to show the story of your love and will get everyone ready for a day of romance and love. It’s a sweet way to set the tone and everyone will be excited to see you finally say “I do”!
Another way to create an inviting vibe is by doing a list of “who is more likely…” on the invitation! It’s a great way to show that opposites attract but also is a great way for your guests to feel like they really know you. If you are inviting lots of close friends and family, this is a great way for them to know how special it is they were chosen to be there! If you choose to do this on invites to people who you don’t really know all that well, it’s a great way to make them feel like they know you and like they are really part of the celebration!
Your wedding invites should be as unique of your wedding celebration. Whether you are attempting to set the tone of simply have a unique way of inviting those you are closest too, adding character to your initiation has never been easier than when you rely on Forever Friends!
When it comes to your wedding invitations, you always want
them to stand out. Your invitations present you with an opportunity to create
something that is unique to you by combining beautiful elements and printing
techniques. The last thing you want is for your invitations to look similar or
the same to other invitations you have seen. In order to make yours unique and
really add that ‘wow’ factor, then you are going to need to take some time and
prepare a unique invitation. Read on and find a few ways that will really make
yours stand out against the rest.
Use a Beautiful Typeface
A beautiful typeface is a must with any wedding invitation. Some
of the options that are a perfect fit include scripts, brush, calligraphy, and
handwriting fonts. These are highly recommended because of the limited text on
an invitation. Try to pair one of these typefaces with a simpler font like sans
serif for contrast. You can use the more elegant type for names and sans serif
for the rest to really make them stand out.
Customize a Template
When it comes to a template, if you start with a premade
invitation, it can be a great way to get the ball rolling on your custom
design. It can give you an idea on what style best fits the couple and move on
from there. A good template is one that you can fully customize to suit your
unique needs. Change colors, typefaces, pictures, or themes until you create
something you truly love.
Photo Keepsake Option
When you create an invitation, the recipient may throw it
away after writing down the date in their calendar. In order to make your
invitation more of a keepsake, create one that doubles as a beautiful wedding
photo. When you use a great image and match it with some simple calligraphy,
you can turn it into a design that recipients will want to hold onto.
Print on Quality Paper
Whenever you create something that is printed, nothing says
special occasion like quality paper. You will want to opt in for something with
adequate weight and texture. A sturdy invitation on good paper will always look
better and more official.
When you need your invitations printed perfectly, without
imperfections, you need the right wedding print shop. That’s where we come in,
here at Forever Friends

Congratulations on your upcoming
wedding! While deciding on your wedding invitations and rsvp cards, consider unique
ways to ask friends and family if they’d be in your wedding party. Keep reading
to learn a few tips on ways to choose your wedding party.
Think Twice Before You Ask
Always think twice before asking
friends or relatives to be in your bridal party. Once you ask, there is no
turning back. Consider the future and how close you may or may not be with the
people you’re thinking of asking. You’ll need to trust your attendants to be
there for you during the stresses of planning your wedding.
Understand that it’s important to
be honest with yourself and the wedding party about what you’ll be expecting of
them. Do you want your attendants to help you with addressing invitations or
helping you shop for the day of attire? Or would you want to have them leave
the details to you? Whether you want an involved wedding party or people to
simply support you from afar, it’s important to decide before popping the
question to your candidates.
Consider the Size of Your Wedding
Are you expecting to have a large
gathering at your wedding? Or something more intimate with only your close
friends and family? Determining the size of your wedding could give you a
general idea about how many people you want in the wedding party. However,
don’t let this be only deciding factor because a large wedding can still have a
small wedding party and vice versa.
Remember There Aren’t Rules
Don’t let the titles of
bridesmaid or best man stand in the way of choosing the best person for the
role. If your dream choice for your maid of honor is a man, call him the man of
honor or if you’d prefer your sister or best girl friend to be your best man,
do it. No matter the role you’re looking to fill in your wedding party,
remember there are no rules in who you choose.
When you ask your friends and
loved ones to stand next to you on your wedding day, keep these tips in mind to
feel confident you’re making the right choice. When you’re ready to pop the
question to them, Forever Friends has a
wide assortment of “Will you be my…” cards and totes to personalize
Since childhood, you’ve always been
told to say “thank you” after the holidays or a good meal to show how
grateful you are. The same holds true for your wedding day and wanting to
express gratitude for the people that came to celebrate your big day. Keep
reading for some traditional and unique ways to thank your wedding guests.
Thank You Cards
There’s nothing wrong with
sticking to the tried and true method of showing your thankfulness through
thank you cards. Get personal with them by including anything from handwritten
notes to monograms. From aunts and uncles to cousins and friends, thank you
cards are a safe and classic way to express your appreciation for having them celebrate
Mingle and Chat
little way of saying thanks to your guests that also plays into proper wedding
etiquette, is making sure to chat and mingle with them. While you’re not saying
“thank you” verbatim, you are taking the time out of your evening to show they
matter to you more than being a name on a list. So, not only will you be able
to share in the contagious joy of the day, but your guests will feel
appreciated and cared for.
Favors With Meaning
If you want to go the extra mile
in showing your guests how happy you are, finding small favors to place on
their seats during the reception can be a great way to go. Whether you want to
add a DIY flair to your reception or find a general, but still unique favor,
the options are limitless. These can include anything from candies, homemade
preserves, and even liquor. Whatever you choose, your guests are sure to leave
feeling glad to have been there with you.
No matter how you
choose to share your happiness with guests, you’ll never be left wanting for
ways to say “thank you.” Whether you’re more traditional with a
unique flair or totally like going outside the status quo, your thank you
favors and cards will let your guests share in your happiness. Let the team at Forever Friends help you choose the
best cards and gifts for your guests to really tell them how much you
appreciate them being there on your special day!
