Does your wedding invitation suite really matter?

March 15, 2023

The short answer: yes! Your wedding invitation suite is one of the most important first impressions for your special day.

Your wedding invitation suite sets the tone and expectations for your big day, and it’s often the first impression your guests will have of your wedding. It’s not just a piece of paper that informs your guests of the time and place of your ceremony and reception, but rather an opportunity to convey your wedding style and aesthetic. From the design, color scheme, and font choices, to the paper quality, every element of your invitation suite should be intentional and cohesive. It’s the first impression of what your wedding is going to feel and look like. Investing in your wedding invitation suite is vital since it reflects the level of care and attention to detail that you are putting into your wedding planning. Your wedding day is one of the most significant events of your life, and your invitation suite should reflect the importance and uniqueness of the occasion. A well-crafted invitation suite also creates a lasting impression on your guests and sets the tone for the entire wedding experience.

The design and location of your wedding will lead to what you’ll want to include within your envelope. There is no requirement to have any additional elements beyond the standard four: the addressed envelope, main invitation card, reply card and reply envelope. Although there are other pieces you can include within your wedding invitation suite: details or further information card (including but not limited to accommodation options, transportation details, dress code, and any other pertinent information that guests may need to know or should expect), a mapped illustration of your wedding location, or a card with directions and parking details. Ultimately, the items included in a wedding invitation suite will depend on your preferences and the level of detail you want to provide to your guests.

Not only is it a creative teaser that will get your friends and family thrilled for your big day, but it’s also a much-appreciated source of information for your attendees. A well-crafted invitation suite helps you to organize your wedding details and also provides a memorable keepsake for you and your guests. Your invitation suite will be photographed within your wedding details, shared on social media, and kept as a reminder of your special day for years to come.

Happy Planning!
