There are so many different types of invitations you can find on Pinterest, it’s hard to decide not only on a style, but what parts of the invitation you need. I love photographing a full suite of stationary, Save the date cards, Invitations, RSVPs, envelopes with beautiful calligraphy and liners.
Tip 1 – Double and triple check the details on your cards. Never send cards to print before having someone else proof read them. Make sure your information is correct, and your spelling is right! Nothing more embarrassing than having your name spelled wrong, or even worse having the wrong wedding date!
Tip 2 – Coordinate your design between your invitations, thank you cards, menus, table number and place cards. It’s so nice to see the theme of the stationary carry through the entire day.
Tip 3 – Make it unique. It’s so easy these days to buy a template online and send your invitations to an inexpensive printing company and be done, but it doesn’t show the care and glamour of custom designed invitations that companies like Stay Magical or Making Memories can create for you.
Bonus Tip – Keep an extra copy of your stationary suite for your photographer. It’s always a beautiful thing to photograph and add to the details.
