Wedding Invitation Tips during COVID-19
If you are an engaged couple in the midst of planning a wedding, yet have not set a date and are uncertain with what to do, here are some tips to help move forward with the wedding stationery process and be ready-to-go when you have confirmed your wedding date.
1. Finalise your guest list
One of the most challenging parts of wedding planning is finalising your guest list. We recommend getting all your contacts in a spreadsheet and going through to make sure you have all the spelling and titles correct. Finalising your guest list will help determine the number of cards needed.
2. Narrow your choices for your wedding invite
Most engaged couples will match their wedding stationery to a theme, style or colour scheme they have determined for staging their big day. If you are getting married by the countryside you may look at a range of rustic wedding invitations. Or perhaps you want an invite that speaks your destination wedding at a beach. Your ceremony may be set at a beautiful botanical garden, inspiring you towards an invitation with illustrative florals. Once you have narrowed down to a selected few, think about the customisation you'd like to have on the invitations such as wording and colours. At Little Bridge Design, our invites are printed in digital colour, which means we can customise your invites to almost any colour you have in mind.
3. Wedding invitation wording during Coronavirus times
During this pandemic, it's important to inform and reassure your guests by letting them know what to expect at your wedding in terms of social distancing and germ spread prevention. This may mean that you address potential concerns such as face masks requirements, wedding ceremony seats distance, hand sanitisers access and so forth. With the amount of information, we recommend you include a wedding information card (enclosure cards) rather than directly on your wedding invite.
4. Decide what type of cards you would like in your invitation suite
Once you have your design selected and the information you'd like to include in your suite, it’s time to decide if you need any enclosure cards to accompany your invitation, and if so, what types i.e. RSVP, information cards, reception cards, etc. These cards allow you the freedom to word the extra information in any way you like. Some clients like to incorporate a little humour and light-heartedness into these cards. It is also a good time to think about any add-ons e.g. envelope liners, seals and hot foil.
5. Setup your wedding website
A wedding website is a great accompaniment to your printed wedding invitation suite, as it allows more flexibility to share any further details about your wedding i.e. the transport logistics, ceremony, reception details and any updates to your wedding (especially during Coronavirus). It is a smart and easy way to make sure your guests get the most up-to-date information.
These are just some tips to help you prepare and organise your wedding. While it may seem you are at a standstill, we recommend you start with these tips which will get you moving forward with your wedding planning while alleviating your stress once you have confirmed your wedding date.
