One of the first tasks on the list of wedding planning is invitations. From the guest list to the stamps, it’s an undertaking that should be done with diligence and accuracy. Whether you’re the do-it-yourself bride or looking to hire a company, we’ve compiled a list of qualities and features to look for in invitation consultants.
This is your wedding day with colors and flowers chosen by you and your spouse to be; make sure your dreams are portrayed across all printed material. When working with a graphic designer, the possibility of creative freedom is lessened. While the invitations will be unique, your vision may be a bit muddled. For those looking for full creative freedom, DIY or even online wedding invitations may be the direction to take.
Budget is a key factor in all wedding related items. Bills add up quickly, so be sure all pricing is discussed and agreed upon up front. When beginning your search for an invitation company, check their website and take notice if prices aren’t listed. Most companies stand behind their pricing and are confident to list dollar signs on their website, and there may be an expensive reason for those who hide their prices. Furthermore, unless you’re planning to grace your guests with hand delivered invitations and a personal dove of their own, invitations shouldn’t be extravagantly pricey. Check the price-per-invite and make sure you’re getting your money’s worth.
Does the company have single card invitations, pocket folder invitations, and all options in between? Border effects enhance your invite by allowing the words to “pop” while layered effects add depth. Maybe you’re looking for a more simplistic and charming route. Whatever it may be, be sure the company can supply. Right down to color options and paper stock, you need to be presented with options and alternatives so you can make an educated decision on what suits your wedding best.
Lastly, do past clients speak highly of the company and the invitations they received? Delegate some time to scrolling through their testimonials. If they don’t have any on their website, request them! Past clients will give you first-hand insight to the strengths and weaknesses of the invitation company before you make your purchase.
