The fifth thing you need to bear in mind is to make sure you keep the entire invitation on a personal level. This includes making sure your wedding reception invitation wording is written more in a more relaxed style and not in a formal manner. So any formal words such as cordially invite would need to removed.
If you are planning your wedding out of city or far from your residence then you must make sure the accommodation services ahead of time as well. Apart from accommodation, facilities such as catering, decoration, music and etc must also be considered before selecting wedding reception venue.
Your wedding reception invitations should match your theme. You have to think about your color themes as well. If you are going to have your big day in winter, you may not go for a design which is depicting a beach and sunshine.
Also, before selecting your wedding venue, you have to consider the number of guests you will invite. For instance, if you have invited 500 people then the wedding party venue should be having a lot of room or else you invited guests will feel upset and frustrated because no one wants to spend his/her time in a place which is congested. At the same time if the reception venue you choose can hold up to 500 people and you invited only 200 then it would look empty and boring. So, it is advisable here that you must select a party venue considering the number of guests that will be attending your wedding reception.
You should also pay extra attentions to the contents of the cards. You have to make sure that you will put the the details such as the date and time of your reception. If you are not going to order a RSVP card, you should also be sure that you will put your contact details on the card.
