A personalised wedding invitation is a unique way of announcing your big day to family and friends. From laser cut to embossed, there are so many different styles to choose from. But how do you know what type of design will suit your wedding? Worry not because this guide covers everything you need to know about personalised wedding invitations.
Benefits of Personalised Invitations for Weddings
Personalised wedding invitations are a great way to set the tone for your wedding. A well-designed invitation will tell your guests about the essential details of your big day, and it’s also a chance for you to share a bit about yourselves.
There are many benefits to choosing personalised invitations for your wedding, including the following:
- You can choose from a range of designs and styles to suit your personality and wedding theme. Whether you want something traditional or modern, stationery can be found in all kinds of designs, colours, shapes and sizes – so there really is something that suits everyone!
- Whether you opt for printed cards or e-invites (electronic versions), they can be affordable if you order in bulk.
Ways to Personalise your Wedding Invitation
There are many ways to personalise your wedding invitation. The following list includes some of the most common and effective ways to do so:
- Names of the couple – If you have a traditional name, it can be fun to use that instead of your first or middle name. If you’re getting married under an assumed name, write that down too!
- Date and time – These are easy to print in large font on the front page of any standard invitation—for example, Saturday, May 12th at 2 pm.
- Venue – If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, consider including “The Garden” or “The Beachside Plaza” along with directions such as: Take Exit 3 off Highway 1; turn left at Burger King onto Main Street; go two blocks until you see Starbucks on your left; turn right into the parking lot behind Starbucks; walk through brambles for about five minutes until reaching the beachfront location where guests will find tables set up for food, drinks and dancing!
A personalised invitation box or envelope inset
Personalised wedding invitations are a great way to add some flair and personality to your big day. However, they can also be very expensive. Many options are available when it comes to personalising the box or envelope inset.
- You can use a laser cutter to make your own custom sleeve for the invitation.
- If you need access to a laser cutter or want to spend money on something other than one, another option is to stamp the box with ink or paint that matches your theme colour scheme so that it looks like part of the design rather than an afterthought.
Laser-cut invitation sleeves for a unique wedding invite
While laser-cut invites are most commonly used to add a personal touch to the front of an invitation, there are also ways that you can incorporate them into the back and sides of your wedding invites. This is a great option if you want something more than just a standard design with text and graphics.
For example, a laser-cut wedding invitation sleeve could be made up of cutout letters or an abstract pattern that aligns with your theme. It could also be 3D or even embossed with gold foil or glitter!
These types of invites can be personalised to match your wedding theme.
The invitation sets the tone for your wedding and is an important part of the overall wedding theme. It is also a great opportunity to incorporate details about you, your relationship and even your personality into your invitations so that guests get a sense of who you are as a couple before they even arrive at your wedding.
Things to Consider while Personalising Wedding Invitations
Before you start personalising your wedding invitations, it is important to consider a few things.
- The theme and colour scheme of your wedding: Consider your theme before choosing colours for the invitation cards. If there’s something that’s unique about your relationship or personality, try to incorporate that into the design of the cards.
- Your partner’s personality: Make sure that it reflects who they are as well as how much you love them!
- The style of both weddings can be anything from colours to fonts and designs used on the invitee’s card. If one partner has a more formal style, while another may prefer something more casual or fun-loving (and vice versa), then make sure that their personalities are reflected in their own invitations, too – this could mean using different fonts when writing out each name printed on a single piece of paper rather than using one font throughout all three pieces together (i.e. invitee ticket + envelope).
