Choosing the Most Appropriate Wedding Invitation

By P Greaves

As with every other aspect of weddings these days, it is no longer set in stone for wedding invitations to be traditionally designed and worded. Instead, they are now considered the perfect way to offer invitees a sneak peak into the unique personality of the bridal couple and an inviting glimpse into the character of the affair. In order to achieve this however, it is important that you choose the appropriate wedding invites.

Take a look at any offline or online store that creates wedding invitations and you will see that they stock a wide range in every style and color possible to suit all kinds of weddings. While this means todays bridal couples have an endless array to choose from, it also makes the task of choosing the right invitations that much more difficult.

How to Choose the Most Suitable Wedding Invitation

There are several different aspects of the wedding that you need to take into consideration when selecting your invitations. Some of the most important aspects include the tone of your wedding, the color scheme and the theme.

Tone of the Wedding - Are you planning an ultra formal reception hosted in a five-star hotel or is it a more casual barefoot-in-the-park affair? Not only are the style and design of formal wedding invites distinctly different from that of casual invites, even the wordings and the font of the wording are different.

Color Scheme of the Wedding - Though there are no laid down rules about designing wedding invites of any type, sending invitations that complement the wedding color theme is an unwritten rule that is followed by almost all bridal couples. Matching the color of wedding invitations to the d├ęcor ties in all the elements of the occasion and shows that you have taken the trouble to take care of the minutest details.

Theme of the Wedding - Are you having a themed wedding? Is it a Valentines Day wedding, a Christmas, beach, or Victorian wedding? Each theme has a distinctly different tone and the appropriate wedding invitations for each theme would give your guests a better idea of what to expect. Sending a shell- shaped, casually worded invite for a Valentines Day Wedding would set a jarring note to the whole event but instead would be perfect for a wedding that is actually being held on the beach.

When choosing the most appropriate wedding invitations you may also want to consider the season in which your big day will take place, the type of flowers you are having and whether or not you want to incorporate a specific religious or ethnic theme.

Choosing the most appropriate wedding invitations is an important part of achieving the right atmosphere; it in fact sets the tone of the whole wedding.
