Wedding invitations might seem like a minor component of your wedding, but they are in fact very important. Not only do they provide all the essential information for your guests, invitations also generate anticipation for your big day—and they make wonderful keepsakes from your wedding!
Before you start with your wedding invitations, consider your budget and work around it. Next you need to think about your theme, preferred style and colours and what type of invitation you want (handwritten, printed on paper, electronic versions or something artistic or unusual). Companies range in price, style and technique so you might want to consult a few places before you choose a designer.
