5 Steps for Scheming The Wedding Invitation

Wedding is an important event in everyone’s life. Finding and deciding a perfect invitation might be tricky. One might have spent hours searching for appropriate card but might not have been successful. One can choose among the numerous sample cards or else can illuminate on the type of card to a professional.  In this way one can customize personal cards and can blend it well with the concept and theme of wedding. Timing and budgeting plays a vital role in this.

  • If you have any concept or vision, then elaborate more about it, so that the professional may visualize and create the design as desired by you. You can carry the source of inspiration if it from a magazine or from a site. This will give a better idea to work on colors, textures, fonts, embellishments etc.  Sketches, clippings, past invitations can be carried to explain the inspiration.
  • Color scheming is another important aspect. A card can be designed with a single colour and its hues. Or else a combination of two or three complimentary colors is suggested. Remember the type and quality of material or paper also matters. A particular type of colour may appear different when printed, on the selected material. Intelligent blending of various motifs and monograms will give a different dimension to your card.
  • The size, shape, format of envelope also matters. The card should not be oversized or undersized. The matter should fit appropriately with suitable font sizes. Other elements like borders are also decisive in attributing the accurate sizing and shape of a card.  
  • Once the concept is clear the next step involved is customizing it. The number of sheets, layers, patterns and colors even the material. The various arrangements may require a special process of printing. The professional you are hiring should have the facility for printing the right kind of stuff on the desired material.
  • The professional whom you have hired must be capable enough in putting all the elements together. He must be skilled to produce the desired effect and must come with other innovative ideas to enhance the overall look of the card. One can take referrals from friends, families or wedding planner to hire the right kind of professional who is thorough with his profession. One can visit various stationeries and card shops that exclusively design customized cards. Proofreading of the final card is mandatory.

And lastly ask the final date of delivery of the cards. It is recommended to get the entire stuff done in stipulated deadline. As a lot of time is further consumed in mailing, delivering invitations personally, so plan wisely and set deadlines for distribution long before the wedding day.
