Ordering Wedding Invitations

Similar to choosing the perfect wedding dress, ordering wedding invitations can cause bridal panic attacks. First impressions last forever, and wedding invitations set the tone and theme for the entire affair – not to mention the fact that they’ll last forever in your mother-in-law’s scrapbook.


Put all that together and it’s easy to see what a central role invites play in your big day. But remember, this is supposed to be fun! Take a deep breath and consider the following invitation details to guide yourself through the process intact.


Many brides struggle with creating the perfect theme for their weddings. In my experience, brides begin with a theme in mind, but it goes out the window once they see invitation samples they love. Keep an open mind about invitations, especially if you have no locked-in theme or colour scheme. Sometimes, actually viewing product samples is the difference between liking an invitation and ordering an invitation.

My best advice when it comes to planning a wedding is to stick with a colour theme, rather than stick to a design theme. Narrow design themes can eliminate choices before you’ve even considered them.


Invitations can get pricey. It’s also difficult to weigh a fair price against the level of quality and detail required. I recommend that brides compare the prices of many wedding invitation suppliers to ensure they’re receiving reasonable deals. Invitation House offer free guest name printing on invitations, and offer free shipping on all UK orders over £200. It’s important to consider each aspect of a price to get the best value for money.

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. What one bride loves, another bride hates. For example, more outgoing brides could feel that a tri fold with a satin ribbon and diamante heart perfectly sets the stage for an elaborate, flashy wedding. On the other hand, traditional brides may love classic invitations, featuring a white hammered card with black, gold or silver ribbon that appears simple and elegant.


I would also recommend that brides stay away from adding photos of the couple to the wedding invitations. Photos of the couple, or of a landscape, are more appropriate for a thank you card or a save-the-date card. If you have your heart set on incorporating a favourite photo, use it on your wedding order of service, table menu or wedding favour.


Wedding Stationery Supplier


Shopping for invitations online can save brides a lot of time, money and stress. Wedding Invitation suppliers, like Invitation House, offer a vast selection of designs and can provide a custom design invitations to fit each bride’s unique requirements. Brides can also easily search for reviews of suppliers online. Past brides often offer the most reliable feedback.


Ease your invitation stress by performing a little research before contacting suppliers. Know roughly what you want, but keep an open mind in order to get the best results. Have fun with the process, and you’ll be able to create something that you’ll want in your scrapbook, too.
