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.

Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Party

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.

Honest Expectations

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.

Thoughts

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 the experience.
