Deciding on the right save the date magnets or cards can take lots of patience! There are literally thousands of designs to choose from – from very simple designs to elaborate personalised ones where pretty much anything goes.
One important thing to consider is whether your save the date magnets or cards have matching wedding invites and other stationery available so that you can carry the design throughout the whole of your wedding stationery. It is always a good idea to choose the theme at the start and match all your invitations accordingly.
We advise that you set aside an evening (or a few lunch breaks at work!) to have a look at what’s available online and get an idea of what you like and don’t like. This research will help to inform your decision when it comes to purchasing your wedding stationery.
I don’t think a bride is ever aware of the amount of time and effort that planning a wedding actually takes. Even if you have been dreaming about the big white dress from the age of three, the reality of exactly how much needs to be done is sometimes a little overwhelming.
It doesn’t need to be a stress-fest though – we’re not claiming that everything will go smoothly and it’s easy-peasy, but there are ways to make your wedding preparations an pleasant experience; one that you can enjoy as a couple and have fun whilst you’re doing it.
One of the enjoyable bits is most definitely sorting out your wedding stationery and buying your wedding invitations. The invitations are an extremely important part of your wedding, as they give the first impression to your guests of what style your wedding will be. With the huge range of wedding invitations available, it is possible to match them to your theme or colour scheme.
So, take your time, browse online for something you both like and take advantage of personalisation services which do a lot of the handwriting for you! If you are having a wedding gift list, make a day of it when you visit your chosen store and have fun with your wish list. Not everyone wants a Denby crockery set – if you want a trampoline for the garden, go for it! Then all you have to do is send out your wedding invitations and wait for the replies to come back to you.
When it comes to birthdays, each one is different. Some will have themes and some will be more formal; because of this, it is important to have invitations the suit the style. When it comes to creating 70th birthday invitations, it may be worth creating your own and here are some reasons why.
A Cheaper Option
Depending on the amount of invitations that you will need, you may find that it is cheaper to make your own. If you are tech-savvy, there are a number of computer programmes that will help you, such as Microsoft Publisher or Paint. For those who are not computer-savvy, even making your own hand-drawn ones may work out to be a cheaper option.
Create Something Personal
By making your own 70th birthday invitations, you will be able to create something that is more personal. You can add pictures of yourself to the invites or add the theme – if you are choosing one. You will also be able to make sure the wording is exactly as you would say it, instead of choosing something generic from a shop.
Create Something Different
There is no need to offer the normal type of 70th birthday invitations. There are so many ideas that you can choose from and you can really make a big deal about your party. The best thing is that you can create something different and memorable for your guests. E-invites, photo invites and magnets are just a few that may come to mind, but there are many other options out there.
The above are just three of the reasons why you should opt for making your own 70th birthday invitations but there definitely not the only ones. There are so many designs and ideas to choose from and the only problem you may find is that you are stuck for choice!
