Invitation Cards You Need to Make Your Wedding Memorable

Creative wedding invitations are what you need for your big day. It’s important that you’re part of the design process so that your wedding invitations expresses you and your partner’s own creative side. On that note, we will guide you in figuring out which pieces are essential if you’re ordering wedding stationery and how you can stay within your budget. So, read along to learn more!

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

  • Outer Envelope
  • Inner Envelope
  • Belly Band
  • Invitation Card
  • Reception Card
  • Directions/Map Card

How to Plan an Entertaining Wedding

Tying the knot is an experience of a lifetime and has great importance to both the bride and the groom. You’ll show your love to your partner and begin an exciting marriage together. You want to have fun and want everything to go brilliantly when the day comes. However, you also want your guests to have a great time as well! So how do you make your wedding event one of the best they’ve ever been to? Learn more about how you can make your special day unforgettable and keep your guests entertained with the following guide.

Strategize Your Seating Chart

All of your relatives will most likely be present at your wedding, and this also includes your old friends, colleagues, and neighbors. You should take into account the relationships of your guests with each other when preparing the seating plan. Avoid the awkwardness of having two groups of strangers sitting in the same place and attempting small talk throughout the day. There’s nothing more uncomfortable than leaving someone stranded on their own at a table full of people they don’t know. Your friends will have a greater time when they’re sitting with mutual friends rather than your older relatives.  

It’s also highly recommended to use place cards! A place card with the guest’s name and seat number will help with organization – especially for bigger weddings. This way, you’ll have an easier time planning each table and no one will struggle trying to find their own seat.

Think Beyond the Dance Floor

It is known that almost every couple wants their wedding to be over-the-top glamorous. That’s why the majority focuses on hiring expensive entertainment like bands or singer-waiters – thinking only of the music and food. But there are some little things that can make your wedding memorable for everyone.

The wedding reception is where your guests will head after the wedding ceremony to enjoy some drinks and food. So, think about adding a sophisticated touch and creating something exceptional for your wedding that will WOW your guests. This can be anything from customized menu cards and napkins to personalized party favors.

The theme and atmosphere is just as important as the entertainment and will leave a lasting impression. Always think about your color scheme and any customizations catered towards your guests. You can also try to design your very own reception cards with a professional designer. Remember that organization is key when it comes to keeping your guests happy. While planning a wedding can be stressful, everyone will have more fun if you focus on the small details.
