Absolutely, yes they do.
Whether you are having a formal wedding or an informal gathering, its still a get together, and every get together needs an invitation.
Its the first indication to those around you that you are about to get hitched and it sets the tone for the celebration. Your invitation will certainly start to get people excited about the upcoming nuptials, and it will allow you and your wedding planner to have a final deadline!
Deadlines might scare you, but they are your wedding planners best friend indeed. From that date, your wedding planner, or indeed your Hidden Bridesmaid will be able to set the sequence of the number of tasks that need to be completed.
Digital or Printed? Does it really matter?
Well, I would still like to say yes!
The digital age has afforded us or sorts of conveniences….but it has also wiped out all sorts of documentation and history. So at Hidden Bridesmaid, we say use both.
SAVE THE DATE - digital is a great way to get the word out, make sure that the most important people on your guest list get notified early so that they can black texta that day in their diaries as a day not to be missed.
FORMAL INVITE - your formal invitation does not have to be expensive, in fact it can be a DYI….but there is a lot to think about when selecting your combination of paper, card, font, embellishments, additions and so on. Consider your venue theme, dress style, bridesmaid colours and flowers. Consider traditions, historical elements, your style and your favourite things - do they get to influence the look and feel?
RSVP - again, you can use digital to do this - it can also be a reminder email you send with a link. Digital links allow your guest to put in all the information you need along with in return sending them all the information they need….like venue location, maps, wishing well details, gift registry etc.
Here are some of the looks we love in 2021 - what do you love?
These three major parts of your invitation process are great for creating a sense of excitement and anticipation to your perfect wedding day!
Get your save the date early, be clear with your instructions and help your friends and family start to share in your journey to the altar.
