Wedding Invitations Your Guests Will Never Forget

Wedding Invitations Your Guests Will Never ForgetThe wedding invitations you use are more than just something inviting people to come and watch you tie the knot. Wedding invitations are also about sending a message to people who are going to see them. They’re about offering up what could be considered a unique perspective of the life you and your partner are about to share together.

As simple as these might see, the communication ability they have can’t be denied. You want to create a lasting impression, something guests will never forget and will not want to forget. What do you think is going to be the effect if your wedding invitations are bland or overly basic?

Guests will assume that bland or overly basic invitations are going to be representative of what will be a bland or overly basic wedding. So what you want to do is spruce things up and add some excitement to the mix. Invitations that are fun and exciting are precursors of what’s going to be experienced on the actual big day.

So the question is what can you do in order to make your wedding invitations not just appear appealing, but also to make them have a special air about them. Well there are all sorts of options.

Something as simple as having a monogram on your invitations can make them memorable for example. Maybe having the initials of you and your partner on them, but intertwined in a way that makes them look like one symbol. Icons can also work. The key is going to be for you to not be shy about taking a different road from what’s usual and safe.

You’ll want to take measures to set your invitations apart in a way that the personal touch you inject into them will be hard to not notice.

Now, the best way to create a “wow” factor with your friends and family would be to focus on sending them invitations that they won’t want to discard. The invitations should be something that they’ll have a desire to save. They’ll consider it a keepsake.

One really effective idea you can try is having an artist you and your partner would select to create a personalized logo on the invitation. You’d want the logo to have an artist’s rendition of both you and your partner. Now some might consider this to be too much, but it will certainly be something that friends and family would be talking about for a long time to come and in a good way. Read more

The trend started in Victorian England and has now become custom in various cultures throughout the world.  Ringbearer might be the official designation now, but ringbearers were referred to as pageboy’s way back in England. Their role used to be more load heavy as well. They were responsible for carrying the bride’s train, along with a book of prayer on top of carrying the rings.
