Wedding invitations are often the introduction to your wedding for your guests, so it is understandably important to couples that the wording is right and the style sets the intended tone for the wedding. The Leaf Press website contains advice about wedding invitations and I thought it would be useful to summarise advice available both here and from other sources.
In the Wedding Stationery section of The Leaf Press website there is an Advice page, which has the following articles:
How to word your wedding invitations – including sample layouts, who to address them to, who to send them from and how to add guest names.
When should you send out wedding invitations – factors to think about when deciding how soon before your wedding to send invitations.
Information to include with wedding invitations – such as travel, accommodation and gift information.
How to ask for wedding gifts – polite ways to request specific presents, money or other types of gifts.
And following on from the invitations there is also an article to decide what items of wedding stationery to use at your wedding.
Other sources of advice about wedding invitations would include:
Debretts which offers guidance on traditional codes of conduct. The Debretts website has a section dedicated to weddings which is useful if you are planning a traditional formal wedding.
Wedding magazines often have a wedding invitation and stationery feature, with advice from industry experts.
