Ideally, your wedding day should be the best day of your life. A large part of your special day comes from the guests you have at the ceremony. This is why the invitations themselves are so important.

Like every other detail of your wedding, invites must be perfect. Printing perfect wedding invitations can be tricky, though, hence why it's important you take all these crucial details into account before they hop off the printing press. In a previous blog, we have already outlined 'What makes the perfect wedding invitiation' and in this edition, we outline our tips on how to create the perfect WINTER wedding invite. 

Know What Size You Want

Before you do anything else, make sure that you know what size you want your invitation to be. The preferred size for a wedding invite is usually around A5 or A6 but this is not set in stone.

Anything larger than that, though, may seem a bit alarming a bit of a waste of paper. Not to mention you'll be paying for it! So be sure to choose your size carefully.

Design The Template

You don't need any fancy software to design an effective wedding invitation. Even if all you have is Microsoft Word, you can create a stunning piece of work if you know how to use it.

However, there's nothing stopping you from drafting the design on paper first and handing it over to a our design team to complete the finishing touches.

There are plenty of pre-made templates out there to use, of course, but they lack the personal touch.

Communicate The Theme

While designing your invite, be sure to let everyone know what the theme is. Even if it's just a wintry ceremony, it would be ideal if you could incorporate that into the design.

Of course, this means a lot of sparkles and snowflakes, perhaps even some glitter, but try not to go overboard with this!

You can always use this theme for other items such as table plans, place cards and orders of service. Be creative!

Choose A Stylish But Readable Font

Sadly, a lot of couples get carried away with fonts and choose a calligraphic or cursive font that's borderline unreadable.

This is why it's important that you pick a font that is stylish but also readable.

Use PNGs Not JPEGs

You might not be all that adept with computers but it's important to realise that some pictures you put on an invite might come out blurry.

Vector files like PNGs are much better than JPEGs in this regard as vector images are smooth no matter how much you zoom in.

Run Some Test Prints

It's always best to put your wedding invites through a couple of test runs before printing the final product. Don't make the final printing batch be the only print you have!
