Outside the birth of any children, your wedding day is one of the single most important days of your life. Your wedding invitations say a lot about your wedding and can be the reason why a person does or does not show up to your festivities. In this day and age, modern wedding invitations are a must. Gone are the days of passing out save the date cards at work. These days, people expect to have computer printed or professionally printed modern wedding invitations to a wedding, perhaps even giving some type of hint as to what type of wedding to expect.
If you want people to come to your wedding and enjoy themselves, it might be a good idea to spill some of the beans about your wedding on your invitation, especially if you are inviting people well in advance – which is always a good idea. If you are having a medieval themed wedding, send out modern wedding invitations with knights in armor or a castle or sword on themâ€“something that denotes medieval times.
On the other hand, if you are having a summer wedding, have some indication of that on your invitation as well. This type of thing gives your guests something to look forward to and implants the seed of remembrance in their brain, so when they get a reminder card three months later they know exactly whether or not they are going to attend your festivities. Modern wedding invitations are sent out well in advance. This day and age is full of hustle and bustle for people of all ages. Even your little brother and sister might have plans in November and with any brideâ€™s normal luck, everyone will have plans on the very day that you plan to get married. So be sure to send out your invitations and perhaps even save the date cards well in advance of the actual festivities.
There are quite enough things to think about and stress about over your wedding rather than the invitations; the caterer, the musicians, and the venue are all enough stress to keep anybody entertained for several months. So pick your battles. Go with a modern wedding invitation sent out well in advance, giving a hint as to the nature of your wedding and you will be best served that way. Your guests will get excited and want to attend.
Wedding planning should be fun. Modern wedding invitations should be the least of your worries. If all else fails, print your wedding invitations on your home computer and send them out from there but do not let the invitations serve as the be-all and end-all of your wedding related stress.
