The wedding invitations are the first port of call for a wedding. They tell your guests about your big news, and let everyone know when they should make arrangements to save the date.

Here are three tips to remember when penning yours.

1. The design

There are many different styles of invitations you could opt for. If your wedding is very traditional, how about a hand-written calligraphy font, with a wax seal to add a touch of charm? Perhaps you’re having a more modern-themed wedding, in which case a printed invitation with edgy geometric shapes might be more in keeping with your theme.

2. The wording

The invitation should serve to present the host of the wedding, as well as the bride and groom. Traditionally the parents of the bride would be considered the hosts, but it’s not uncommon for the couple to host their own wedding, or for both sets of parents to be named on the invitation. Don’t forget to include all the necessary details of date, time, and address.

3. The timing

The best time to send out invitations is six to eight weeks before the wedding, as this gives your guests enough time to make arrangements to attend. If you want to send out save the date cards in advance, you can do so several months before the wedding.
