As some would say, the invitation sets a precedent of whats to come! Therefore, it is imperative that all brides-to-be are fully aware of what image they want to portray of their wedding. By the time it comes to ordering your invitations, chances are you have a theme in mind for your big day. Maybe your dress is lace or vintage, maybe your colour scheme is pastel, whatever your trend, it is important that your invites help to convey this and to stay in sync with the rest of your wedding day plans! Some brides may feel that the invitation is a minor part of the day but in essence, this is the first impression that your guests receive of your big day so its important to make a good one!
So how do you ensure that you stay on trend and within budget?
We can help!! At Ignite Design and Marketing we pride ourselves on providing a one to one solution for all jobs, and this includes wedding stationery. From the first phone call to us, we usually arrange a meeting so that we can meet you in person and discuss your theme, your budget and your needs. Staying with your theme needn’t mean parting with your cash! For example, if your wedding theme is vintage and you always loved laser cut invites but not the price tag, why not incorporate a laser cut background into a standard invitation, giving the same effect for half the price! We can advise from the start on how to get your solution within your budget and what styles best suit your needs.
On a tight timeframe? What can you do to speed up the process?
We advise that if time is of the essence, the easiest way to get what you want quickly and efficiently is to have a few ideas with you on the day of the meeting. Google invitations and print out ones you like, pick out fonts that take your fancy, and have an idea of what shapes you prefer! This will greatly speed up the process and will also give us a great understanding of your tastes, making our job easier and your experience seamless!
How much time do I need?
We would ideally love to have at least a two week time frame for invitation orders (laser cut styles require additional time), as this gives us time to proof, edit and print your invites without any time pressures. Most printers require up to a week to print at busier times so we try to have the proofs ready and approved within the first week, and sent to print the second, meaning that you will have your invites in your hand within a two week time period!
What styles are available to me?
There are many styles of invites available and we can cater to your taste. All of our designs are usually made to order although we do have some templates available on our website and social media which can be adapted to any colour scheme, if you are stuck for ideas or time :). This year we have seen a huge rise in the popularity of bellyband invitations, a reasonably priced and classy choice for all brides! The laser cut options also never fail to stay on trend and we have many styles available!
