Wedding invitations are important for a number of different reasons. Wedding invitations are use to notify the guests that you will be having a wedding ceremony and a reception afterwards. So many elements of wedding planning, from the booking of the reception hall to the catering to the choice of church, hinge on how many guests will be attending, and unless you send out your wedding invitations in plenty of time you won't know how many to plan for.
Choosing the right wedding invitations does not have to be difficult, but it is important to allow plenty of time for those wedding invitations to be selected, addressed and mailed. Wedding invitations set the mood for everything. Plan your wedding invitations with care. The wedding invitation that you choose is a reflection on you and the groom. There are many options available to you so that you can get a great price on a wedding invitation that reflects your personal taste and style. The invitation also serves as a souvenir of a special occasion, and an announcement of a couple's love. An invitation shows consideration for that friend or family member. It is a standard procedure that you send wedding invitations to your guests to request their presence on your wedding day.
Regardless of how many guests you want to invite, you may want to send out a rehearsal dinner invitation as well, to those you'd like to attend. Your wedding rehearsal dinner invitation can be a simple invitation or it can be as elegant as your wedding invitations. With more couples opting for destination weddings these days, it has become increasingly common to find in your mail box, a wedding invitation to a wedding in one of the more popular wedding destinations. We should all be so lucky.
Brides and grooms, let me tell you a little secret that couples all over the country are following: put the starting time on the invitation thirty minutes earlier than the time you plan to walk down the aisle. By doing this you are sure to have all of the attendees there when you nuptials begin.
Wedding decorations help make the most momentous time of a couple's life even more special. The decorations in the church should be similar to the decorations you choose for the reception. If costs are a major concern, check with other brides in the area and explore the feasibility of sharing the decorations. One of the most important factors when planning the wedding reception decorations is the venue. If a theme has already been selected for the wedding, the decorations for the reception should go with the theme.
Keep in mind that everything should coordinate. From the flowers at the church to the flowers on the cake and everything in between, there should be continuity. You can even go so far as to have the bakery match the flowers on your dress.
When it comes to the bride and groom selecting the right wedding favors for their guests, it can become quite daunting. Many look for that unique wedding favor, but at the end of the day, you have to remember that there is no right or wrong way when selecting the type of favors for your guests. A lot of brides and grooms choose the wedding favors that best illustrate their true personalities as individuals and couples.
It is very important when choosing your wedding table favors to consider the time of year at which you are getting married. If you are getting married in summer, Christmas wedding favors would look totally inappropriate. So many wedding guests have nut allergies, dairy allergies or are on diets that choosing suitable edible favors can be quite a challenge. Nobody wants a catastrophic event at their wedding reception. If your wedding is simple, plain, classy and elegant, you will want to keep your wedding party favors the same.
