Ways to Make Your Wedding Invitation Design POP!

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 you can count on us to provide you with beautifully printed invitations.

How to Design Wedding Invitations

A lot of planning goes into the design of your wedding invitations. From selecting an elegant and legible font, to picking the size of your card, you can showcase your personality and style to your guests while still including all of the necessary information. In this month’s blog, we’re looking at how to design wedding invitations with a few key steps to remember along the way!

Size and Print

First, you want to pick the shape and size of the invitation; these specifications will give you a lot of information and make the design process a little more worry-free. Depending on your preference to larger or smaller cards, this can determine how much information you can fit, as well as other pictures and memorabilia of you and your partner. It can also determine your postage situation (if you’ll need to pay extra costs for shipping).

Visual Theme

Is your wedding casual? Perhaps it’s a black-tie event? Pick a visual theme for your wedding invitations that matches the tone/theme of your wedding. You’ll want to settle on a style that reflects your personality as a couple. You might spend a few days looking at options online, or maybe you already have a concept in mind. Design elements such as color, typography and other style flourishes can also be used for the actual event (including table cards and signage).

Font/Typeface

The font on your wedding invitation can speak volumes. While script writing is a popular style for traditional cards, modern designs can be just as sleek and sophisticated. While you are thinking about typefaces, this is the perfect time to think about the words going on the card. Pick a typeface that works with your actual letters. (Sometimes a great font doesn’t look the way you like with certain letter combinations.) Make sure to test different fonts with important information like the date, time, and location of your wedding.

Collect Images

Gather up your favorite photos as a couple to put on your card; this kind of display can make your wedding invitation more personal. If you have custom photos from a shoot, then be sure that they will fit the area of your card. You don’t want your images to come out blurry or too small where no one can see them. High-quality and high-resolution photos are the way to go!

Of course, there are so many different ways you can express your creativity with a wedding invitation. If you need a little extra help in the planning process, then we recommend Forever Friends.
