    1. Who’s Hosting?

    In a traditional sense it is often the bride’s parents that are the hosts of the wedding, however including both sets of parents as hosts is a more commonly used format now, regardless of who foots the bill.

    In circumstances where the bride and groom, together with both sets of parents are paying  for the wedding, the words “Together with their parents, Peter and Mary request the pleasure of your company...” can be used.

    2. Bride and Groom’s Names

    Traditionally, the bride’s name always precedes the grooms and if her parents are hosting it’s always her first and middle name that’s listed, while the groom’s full name is included. Titles are an option, but by no means a necessity.

    3. Date and Time of the Wedding

    Whether it’s a formal or more casual affair, it is considered important for the date to be written out in full on wedding invitations, without numerals. The time should be written out with the terms “o’çlock” or “half after” for traditional weddings, while for a more casual wedding, numerals are with a.m. or p.m. are acceptable.

    4. Wedding Ceremony Information

    This is fairly straightforward and ideally should be just the name of the venue with the city and state written in full. However, if the wedding is taking place at a home or a venue that is not well known, you can opt to include the street address in the wedding invitations too.

    5. Reception Info

    For traditional, formal weddings, reception information is normally printed on a separate card, however this is not a must and a lot of couples prefer to have it printed on the wedding invitation itself (granted that there is sufficient room).

    If the reception is taking place at the same location of the wedding ceremony, a simple line like “and afterward at the reception” should be included. If the reception is being held at a different location, the venue details should be listed on a separate line.

    6. Dress Code

    Wedding invitation etiquette dictates that the dress code should be mentioned on the lower right hand corner of your wedding invitation. If you opt not to include a dress-code, your wedding guests are likely to follow your wedding invitation style as a guideline. For instance a traditional wedding invitations in classic colours will indicate a formal dress code, while a more laid-back wedding invitation style gives the impression of a casual dress code.

    7. RSVP Card

    In the case of traditional weddings, couples opt to include a separate RSVP card which the guests will fill up and mail back to the couple. However, a lot of contemporary weddings skip this and opt to have a wedding website instead.

  • Typography Invitations for Weddings

    If you're looking for something unique, a design never seen before, then choose to buy typography wedding invitations because it's all about the words and how it's graphically represented. As the words play the biggest role in the unique edge, the choice of colour and complementing illustration or photography can accentuate the look even more.

    The great thing about typography invitations for weddings (or any other special event, for that matter) is that the way you present your information can even hint towards what you're planning, a preview of your love story. The accompanying invitation design as well as the typeface style can decide whether it is modern or vintage typography to allow your overall wedding theme shower through in an out-of-the-box and creative way.

    There are many types of invitations that use wedding typography styles that are well received. When you choose a specific typography wedding invitation template, if you're looking to personalising it you need to also consider the complementing items, such as the following.

    The Wedding Invite Wording - The choice of typeface, also known as the font has a huge influence on how the wedding invitation will look. If you are looking for a modern design, then san serif fonts would be ideal, whilst vintage styles would lean more towards serif and scripted fonts.

    The Wedding Colour Palette - The choice of colour and how each word (or even letter) is typographically laid out matters, because you're able to make a certain word or sentence "pop" in a seamless manner. These also extend to the accompanying illustration or flourish design to any iconography you may choose to include personalising your wedding invites. Chalkboard wedding invitations are quite popular in this regard.

    Use of Photography and Placement of Typography - If you have decided the style of design you want and if it involves modern typography that is often complemented with photography, then you might want to either select the invite template you want to use so you can work the photography style around it or you could choose the opposite where you choose the photography and move the placement and choice of typography design to include.

    The options are endless when you choose to buy typography wedding invitations online as you can communicate your custom requests for personalisation through email or chat and avoid the hassle of making appointments to consult the invitations designer for minute edits and changes.
