When you finally send out your wedding invitations, it is really exciting! It may have been a long time coming but you know just how thrilled your friends and family will be when they receive their personal invitation through the post.
For a lot of people, there will be many friends and family members coming from around the country, and perhaps even around the world, in order to celebrate your special day with you. For guests who do not live locally, it is a good idea to send out save the date cards in advance.
Save the date cards are normally sent a long way in advance of the wedding invitations and can be a big help to guests who have a long way to travel and who might need to book accommodation in order to attend your wedding. They are also useful to avoid conflicting with your guests holiday plans too.
You can choose save the date cards to match your wedding invites and tie in with the theme of your day.
Whether you have decided to make your own wedding anniversary invitations or have a company to do it for you, there are chances that you want something personal. The problem is finding ideas to use that have not been overused. Here are some considerations to make when it comes to the design for your invitations.
The Addition of Your Theme
Have you decided to add a theme for your wedding anniversary? If so, you may think about adding the theme to the wedding anniversary invitations. This is a great option if you want to centre your party around the theme but not if it is just a side thing. The benefit of adding your theme to your invites is that your guests will know that you are using one.
Choosing the Wording
Do you opt for formal wording or stay casual? This will depend on a number of factors – one of those being the type of event that you are holding. Is your wedding anniversary a meal with a few people or are you holding a large party? Whatever type of wording that you do choose, make sure that the wedding anniversary invitations tell your guests where they need to be, who the party is for and the start time!
Paper vs. Email Invitations
There is now a move to opting for email invitations for many. This is very useful if you know your guests are people who use their computers on a regular basis; but bear in mind that not everyone uses their computer every day of the week. You may want to opt for both email and paper wedding anniversary invitations to reach out to all of your guests.
Choosing designs for your wedding anniversary invitations does not need to be difficult but it is worth taking some time. These are invitations that people will remember for some time and also additions for your wedding album, should you want to continue it for each anniversary.
