Most couples have a wedding budget. Some have more to spend than others but we all have to think between the dollar signs, right? Instead of thinking of a million different things you want at your wedding, why not take the money you were going to spend on “wedding clutter” and spend it on elements that make a big impact!.

Wedding invitations are the perfect place to start because invites are the very first impression guests will have of your wedding, and they can do one of two things:

  1. Set the tone for your wedding and create anticipation or…
  2. Fall flat and leave some guests unsure of whether they want to attend.

Because you want the absolute best turnout possible at your wedding, we’re suggesting a few simple ways you can spend a little more and really get the most bang for your wedding invitation buck!

A Wedding Invitation Suite Is a Sweet Choice

The wedding invitation suite includes all the printed pieces you want/need for your wedding. A basic suite would be an invitation, response card and reception but many couples want to provide more helpful details. An enhanced wedding invitation suite might also include a direction/map card, an accommodations card and possibly something custom like an enclosure card with your wedding weekend itinerary or perhaps a rehearsal dinner invitation.

Many of the wedding invitations here at Dawn have matching pieces so you can create a fully coordinated invitation suite that sweeps guests right of their feet.

Beyond Four-Color Digital Designs

We love digital print designs. You can do so much with this incredibly affordable style of printing but because it’s so versatile, it’s also very common and we think wedding invitations should be uncommonly beautiful! Think fine letterpress stationery, real foil stamping (paired with digital print is amazing), laser cut wraps, raised thermography print and pocket wedding invitations. When it comes to fine wedding stationery, these are design elements that leave a lasting impression.

Perfect Finishing Touches

Sometimes all you need to get that wedding invitation wow factor is one or two finishing touches. Additional elements can show your incredible attention to detail and add to the experience of actually opening a wedding invitation.

What do we mean by experience? There’s a huge difference between opening a simple wedding invitation and an invitation suite with additional details like professionally printed envelope addressing or matching envelope liners. Even custom address stamps with your return address are amazing for adding that impressive finishing touch guests are sure to notice. All of this adds up to an awesome wedding invitation experience for your guests, and we are all about the experience!
