Wedding invitation tips

Define your wedding style

The invitation is your guests’ first peek at your wedding style. Along with listing the location and time of day, the invitation and, more specifically, its style hints to the formality of your wedding. You should have an idea of the type of event you’re throwing classic and elegant, or glam and modern before you start shopping for stationery, so you can choose an invitation style that hits the same note. You can browse through our Pinterest and Facebook Pages to gather inspiration so you can give your stationery an idea of what you like.

Know your colors

Think about your wedding colours too — you may want to incorporate your colors and a motif into your wedding invitations and then carry both through to the rest of your wedding paper (like the escort cards, menu cards and ceremony programs) for a cohesive look. While ivory, cream or white card stock paired with a black or gold font is the classic choice for formal wedding invitations, you can also brighten your invites with colorful or metallic fonts, paper stock, envelopes and liners. Just keep readability in mind when choosing your colors (keep reading for more on that).

Play with the shape and size

A 4.5-inch-by-6.25-inch rectangular card is the traditional size and shape for wedding invitations. But couples are also channeling more playful or modern vibes with circular, scalloped and square invitations. Just keep in mind: Veering away from the standard envelope size can increase the postage — bulky or extra-large invites may cost more to send.
