Why Use an Invitation Kit

Using a wedding invitation kit is a great idea if you are looking for a way to create a beautiful wedding invitation on a lower budget. Kits offer a variety of designs, colors, and shapes, for you to choose from and then mold into the perfect wedding invitation for your special day. Each kit will offer its own variation of response cards, invitations, envelopes, and even templates, but the catch is they will come with a limited number. This is where you need to make sure to pay attention to make sure the cost of the invitation kit will in fact be less than printing your invitation through a company. BUT $54 for 50 invitations may be a price worth the extra work, plus it leaves you room to completely personalize the wording of your invitation. 

How to Word Your Invite

So how do you word a wedding invitation? This will depend a lot on you and your preferences. One of the first things to consider is who the invite is coming from; for example are the bride and groom inviting their guests, is the invitation from the brides parents, the bride and groom’s parents, or perhaps divorced parents? Traditionally wedding invitations are worded to be from the brides parents, but as time has gone on the tradition has, of course, transformed. But with so many options, there comes that many more decisions.
