How do I choose an online wedding stationery vendor?
Ideally, you should spend some time doing your research online to select at least 5 wedding stationary vendors. Once you do this dig a little deeper to learn more about their refund policy (an important fine print that’s often forgotten). For instance DreamDay Invitations offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if you’re not happy with the quality of your wedding invites when they arrive, we’ll reprint your order as quickly as possible without any additional costs.
Many vendors on wedding e-marketplaces offer a range of pricing, so make sure you choose a company that is within your wedding budget. Some vendors offer you extras such as free guest address printing on invitation envelopes, while others offer free shipping, so make sure you look into all of this when making a decision.
Another powerful tool you can use to select an online wedding stationery company is to look for recommendations via online forums or social media. Past brides often offer the most reliable feedback to give you a better idea on how dependable a vendor is - valuable information before you go ahead with ordering your online wedding invitations.
What invitation design should I use for my wedding stationery?
Your wedding invitations give your guests the first glimpse at your wedding theme, so it’s important to make sure your wedding invitation design stays true to the chosen colour combination or key elements. You don’t want to choose a rose-themed wedding invitation design if your wedding theme calls for lilies. Found a wedding invitation design style that you love, but it doesn’t exactly fit your colour scheme?

Wedding invitation wording - should I choose traditional or modern?
This is again completely up to your personal taste, but most often formal weddings call for more traditional wedding invitations which come from both sets of parents and include phrases like “we request the pleasure of your company to celebrate the occasion of the marriage of Anna and Peter”. Modern invitations on the other hand usually come from the couple and is more suitable for smaller, more casual wedding themes like a beach wedding or a destination wedding theme .
