For most couples, there are few bigger days than their wedding and when it comes to preparations for the big day everything needs to be just perfect. If you design, supply or organise wedding invites or if you’re producing invites for your own wedding, you’ll want great creativity and perfect print.
And it comes to how to make wedding invitations everything starts, not surprisingly, with the happy couple themselves.
Know the couple and know the theme
When it comes to what to include on wedding invites remember that the couple aren’t like any other clients. They may or may not know what they want but you’ll save yourself time (and often stress) by meeting them to discuss what they like. In other words, get a good brief. Some couples are clear on the theme, feel and mood they want for their wedding. Romantic wedding invitations are of course always popular, but these days many people go for a quirkier feel. You can also suggest a minimal design style that works equally well with romantic, quirky or any other mood. Retro and pop art feels are big this year too. It’s really up to the happy couple and the more information you get at the outset the more likely they are to be happy with your ideas.
Remember the essentials
There a few things you’ll need to include regardless of the design style. You’ll need the couple’s names, the venue, the date and time of the ceremony. A return address or contact details and date for an RSVP, a space to write the name of the guest/s and dress code. If you’re worried that having to include these details interferes with your design, remember that you can print on both sides or even choose a folded or greeting card style wedding invite.
Choose a paper
No article on how to make wedding invitations would be complete without talking about the paper. Luxury papers such as linen effect, laid, hammer effect, pearlescent and metallic effect are always popular for wedding invites. There’s also silk finish with its soft sheen, gloss and uncoated. Ask for samples. Actually seeing and feeling the paper can really help people make the right choices.
