Wedding invitations are part creative and part practical.

Reflect the Tone of Your Wedding
Wedding invitations should reflect the tone of your wedding. Some couples send save the dates in advance, but for many folks, the invitation is the first aspect of your wedding that they will see. Often times, guests will look to the invitation as a representation of the formality expected at the wedding. The script, colours, and design of the invitation should indicate what to wear and what to expect.
Therefore, if it is a black tie event, many people choose embossed or engraved invitations with minimal design, denoting elegance as a result. Alternatively, a casual outdoor wedding might have floral designs on soft or natural paper to indicate the relaxed setting and low-key location. The wording and organisation of the invitations will also indicate the decorum of the event. When the style of speech and phrasing on the invitations is formal and delicate, guests will expect the same of your celebration.
Give All the Information
As you spend significant time making sure that your invitations are just right in terms of style and design, also be sure to include all of the necessary information. You will definitely want to identify the hosts of the wedding, which are often the bride’s parents. Though many couples pay for the ceremony and reception themselves, so they will want to be indicated as the hosts in such a scenario.
Of course, it is important to make the date, time, and location easy to find. Often times, couples will repeat this information on the RSVP to avoid any misunderstandings. Driving directions are also a huge help for out of town guests who aren’t familiar with the area.
Show Your Personality
Wedding invitations should also convey the personality of the bride and the groom. Often times, the uniqueness of a relationship and lasting love can become lost in the hectic wedding planning. At times, the event itself can feel bigger than the actual relationship you built. However, designing your invitations to reflect your combined interests, character, and romance reminds your friends and family that the entire process is really a celebration of your unique relationship. As well, for those guests who don’t know you as a couple, it is the perfect opportunity to show them your interests and personality as one solid unit.
