You want your wedding invitations to be something extra special. After all, this will be the first news many people will receive announcing your memorable day. The wedding invitations should reflect the style of wedding you plan to have. For example, if you will be having a Victorian-style wedding, your wedding invitations should be ornate and ivory colored. If your wedding is more contemporary, then you can choose something that has more color and contemporary fonts for the lettering.

The most popular choices include white or ivory for color, parchment or pearlized for the paper, and either bi-fold or tri-fold for presentation. Although you can choose from various colors of ink, the primary choices are black and blue. Another consideration is the price, which can vary dramatically. If you shop for your wedding invitations online, you will probably save some money without sacrificing quality. Be sure to check guarantees should something happen to go wrong with your order. In addition, you want to know the amount of time required for making those changes. Local dealers are another option but unless you find something on sale, you are likely to pay more.

If you want something traditional, engraved invitations are beautiful, although the most expensive option. In this case, a metal plate is used to make the letters raised. Another process that is fairly new is called thermography. For this process, the invitation is still engraved but no metal plate is needed, thus lowering the overall cost. One other option is offset printing, which lays flat on the paper. This is the least expensive of all the options and less formal but still very pretty. Be sure to ask to see a list of print styles and ink colors. If you choose a color to coordinate with your color theme, you will probably pay an additional fee.

Regardless of where you buy your wedding invitations, you will be provided with many options from which to choose. In fact, some of the online companies have software that allows you to create a virtual invitation to see the finished product before you actually make the purchase. Once you have your wedding date set, you want to start the search for your wedding invitations as soon as possible. Generally, it will take you a couple of weeks to make your final selection and then you also need to add in the time for ordering, delivery, and proofing. On average, wedding invitations should be ordered anywhere from three to four months before you need them. Of course keep in mind that once the wedding invitations are received you still need to get them mailed out no later than two weeks prior to the wedding. Plan on spending a couple of hours to look through books, select paper, print style, ink color, and verses, and complete the order.
