The sixth point you need to make sure is included within your invitation should address how you wish your special guests to dress. Their comfort should be considered if you are having a casual wedding. The last thing you would want is for your special guests to leave early due to feeling out of place because everyone is dressed casually while they are dressed in a tuxedo and fancy dress. This is very easy to refer to in your invitation. All you have to do is to include how your casual event will take place such as in you will be having a casual beach party or backyard barbeque.
When choosing your wedding reception invitations, you will need to first of all consider your own preferences. However, this is not the only criterion when you are making the decision. You have to consider some other issues when you are choosing.
Being consistent through your entire wedding is important and is also the fourth factor you need to consider. If your wedding is informal, then you need to make sure that your entire invitation is also informal. This means writing the numbers for dates instead of spelling the number out. It also means reducing the titles in the names to Mr. and Mrs. Lastly you need to shorten any street names such as Ave.
Budget for the wedding decorations – While it may typically be difficult to start making the budget with a total estimate already, you can do this important step in little increments. This simply means that you would have to consider every little thing that you wanted to include in the wedding reception. Make a list of the things and start budgeting from there so it would be easier for you to consider a total amount that you can handle as your wedding budget.
Decorated Locations. Consider a location that already has decorations in place OR requires fewer decorations – places like botanical gardens, beaches, churches (during the holidays), or even a park.
