For smaller weddings hand written invitations are to be encouraged but for the larger wedding a printed solution makes sense. Depending on budget you can choose from a simple printed card from a template at your local print shop to finding unique custom invitations from the internet. Handmade, gold-leafed you name it.
If you do decide to make your own invitations then don’t forget to delegate some, or all, of the workload to family members or friends that are involved in the organizing of the wedding.
Always remember to include the ‘essential’ information - here’s the layout and wording of a traditional wedding invitation:
Mr and Mrs John Smith and Miss Ellie Smith [name of invitees, hand written]
Mr and Mrs Jones [Bride’s parents]request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of their daughterSharon VirginiatoMr Wayne McTrumpetat St Patrick’s Church, Orlandoon Saturday the first of Augustat two o’clockand afterwards atWilly’s Bar and Grill R.S.V.P.Our HouseThe LaneOrlando
