Determining your wedding invitation needs

Determining your wedding invitation needs

Planning wedding invitations can come with a lot of questions. What information should be included? How many pieces come in a suite? What kind of paper is best? What are the costs? Luckily, your wedding invitation designer can help you navigate any questions you have and create something beautiful for you that meets your needs and tells your story.


For starters, here are a few things to consider:


Is your style more traditional or modern?

If you’d like something more traditional, you might opt for a full suite: invitation, details card, and reply card. Complete with a belly band and script font. If you lean more modern, perhaps you’ll prefer an elegant and sustainable one page invitation with a link or QR code to your website covering all of the details and RSVPs.


Do you have a specific budget?

When balancing a budget with your vision for your invitations, consider your wants and what is important to you—like going with a fully digitally printed invitation suite, or including specialty printing techniques like letterpress or foil. Your choice of paper as well as extras like bellybands, ribbons, mounting, or edge painting will also affect costs. No matter your budget, your designer will be able to work with you to create lovely and luxurious invitations.

Would you like a custom design experience?

With the custom experience, your designer will work 1:1 with you to bring your ideas to life from concept to execution. With a template, you’ll choose an existing design and replace it with your information. Serif & Spice provides a custom experience, however reach out to learn about semi-custom options. With our templates, you'll choose a design and have the information and colors replaced, and I’ll work with you to further customize your templates with add ons of your choosing like colored envelopes, ribbons, mounting, and more, while still being cost-effective. The sky is the limit!
