When planning your bridal ceremony, one of the essential details of your special day is the invitations. This is primarily because they offer your guests the very first peek at your wedding ceremony. Through your invitations, your guests will be able to know what to expect on your big day. It is recommended that you order your bridal ceremony invitations about six to five ahead of your scheduled wedding. This will give you enough time to get several individuals to take a look at your preferred designed before you get them printed. This process is important hence it is good to avoid doing it in a rush.
When making your wedding invitations order, you are required to give a certain number. This is where you have to decide on whether to have extra invitations or to order the exact number needed. Before deciding on whether to have an extra number, it is good to factor in several things that can happen during the process of creating the initiations once you have received them. For example, it is possible that some you could need an extra invitation for yourself for a keepsake, and also it is possible for the invitations to get spoilt either by getting a wrong address on them or in another way. If you consider all this then, it is a must for you to have extra invitations as they ensure that you are covered.
The price you get for your invitations depends on the quality of the material used, the design of the wedding invitations, the designer’s experience and the urgency of the printing. Most studies state the average amount of money that couples are willing to spend on wedding invitations is $300 to $600. The truth, however, is that there are couples that are bound by a tighter budget and others that would spend as much as $2,500 on the invites only. Different stores give different average prices with design stores being the highest at $1,200 and stationery stores at $700. You could choose to do it yourself to get the cheapest option.
You may want to check the envelope sizes to ensure that you design cards that can fit in the envelope. According to the postage sizes, then the A7 (5x7 inches) or A9 (5.5 x 8.5 inches) cards are the most suitable since they are the easiest to find envelopes. The A7 and A9 envelopes are a quarter inch larger in width and height (5 1/4” X 7 1/4” and 5 3/4” X 8 3/4”) respectively. Sticking to the standard size of wedding invitations could prove to be cost-effective since most designers are already accustomed to printing such. Considering the weight and dimension restrictions of your country is essential.
