Your wedding invitations will be the first taste your
guests will get of your special day.
The invites set the theme of the entire wedding
and the style and design of your invitations will indi-

as it will convey to your guests the dates and times

designers and stores.
Keep in mind what colours, fonts, sizes and
media you wish to use.
Determine what the trends are or what kind of
style you are after.
Your colour palette will depend largely on what
you have in mind for the wedding.
The invitations should compliment your decora-

should be used for envelopes, reply cards, name
cards, wedding programs and all stationery that will
be used on the day.
Most invitation specialists will offer printing for
all your wedding needs, including place cards, and
menus at the event.

tion cards can also be included.

mood for your wedding day.

up-beat dance number that encourages the guests to
hit the dance floor will be sure to make your wedding
day unique and memorable.
