Invitations seem to be the first thing that make the whole wedding process “real” for most brides. You’re taking all the details you’ve been organizing for the past however many months and putting them down on paper to send out into the world. Family and friends will come witness not only the next chapter of your life together, but all the hard work you’ve put into pulling this event together and making it perfect. So, of course, you want your invitations to be perfect, as well. The basic invitation suite can be broken down into a few simple pieces… some are must-have’s, some are nice-to-have’s and some are added bonuses. You might put some pieces in different categories and that’s perfectly fine. These are just the most popular pieces I have found with my clients.
