When you ask a wedding planner why the invitation is important, she is likely to tout the ultra-common line,
“the invitation sets the tone for the event.”
I cannot disagree, but there is so much more to it! In an era where many people don’t take a trip to their mailbox more than 3 times a week because all they ever get are bills and catalogs, how exciting is it to receive something special? An extraordinary invitation is more than information on paper, it’s a keepsake to treasure forever!
Use a special invitation to indicate exactly the type of wedding you will have. When your guests open a fabulous metallic envelope to reveal a pocket-fold invitation with a peacock feather, they will know they are in for a special treat at your fun and contemporary soiree! Opening a colorful box to find hand-made chiffon flowers adorning the corners of soft cotton papers will leave them longing for your big day to arrive so they can celebrate the exquisite romance! Guests will know they’ll soon experience a highly glamorous event when they behold luxurious letterpress invitations adorned with satin ribbon and Swarovski crystals.
Whatever your personal style, your wedding will be a magical day all about you. Doesn’t such a special day deserve a special invitation?
