The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Invitations

Once you and your fiancé settle on your wedding date and venue, it's time to have your nearest and dearest mark your big day on their calendars! But, choosing your wedding invitations is a big decision. It's the first look at the aesthetic of your nuptials and can set the tone for all the festivities to come. And, above all else, they need to make sure all your guests are fully informed on the details. After all, you want to make sure they know about every wedding event, understand dress code, and can RSVP by your deadline.

A wedding invitation is more than just a simple letter in the mail.

Or, you could even send digital invites that lead people to a well-designed wedding website. This guide will break down everything from how much invitations cost to when to send them in the mail to inspiration on how to choose the right designs to fit your wedding style.
