It is crucial to ensure that everything about your wedding card is well-done to ensure that you are sending the relevant details to the appropriate people and avoiding big design blunders. If you are aware of the most common errors, it will be much simpler to avoid making them and ensure that your card designs are flawless.
1. Failing to Spot any grammatical Mistakes
You will want to invite your friends to look through your wedding card invite, and you will want to ask those who have a good grasp of the English language. Because you have read it so many times, it is possible that you have missed a typo or an error in spelling, and it is also possible that the stationer has ignored it as well. It is possible that the guests will show up at the incorrect location or that the RSVPs will not be forwarded to the correct address.
2. Holding off on Hiring the Calligrapher
Suppose you hire a professional calligrapher to collaborate on your card design. In that case, they will produce truly stunning-looking work that will be a keepsake for years to come, not only for you but also for many of your guests. You can create your own wedding card online using the templates and samples available online. If you decide to hire a professional calligrapher and a designer instead, they will produce truly stunning-looking work too, but make sure to hire them early on in the process of developing your wedding cards, at about the same time as you begin looking for a stationer.
3. When it comes to the actual text, having fewer words is better
On the same page as the event information, you shouldn’t include a lyric from your favorite poet on the card you’ll give out. Pick a typeface that is easily readable without being too large.
4. Spend as little time as possible on the RSVP
If you offer your visitors an excessive amount of time to respond to your invitation, you will most likely never receive an answer from them, regardless of whether or not they plan to attend the event. Either the invitation will be misplaced, or they will completely forget about responding to it. You should limit the amount of time you have to react to only around three to four weeks after the day the letter was mailed.
5. Neglecting to check wedding cards for errors before sending them out
Check for errors as if there is no tomorrow. Read it again after you’ve had your morning coffee, read it again while you’re on the train, and read it again when you’re trying to get to sleep at night. Request that your future spouse read it through. The mother of you. Your best friend. Before sending your little checkmark approval to the printer, make sure everyone has a chance to look it over.
These are the common errors that people make when they get the wedding cards designed and when they send out the invitations. You’ll be able to cross another significant item off your to-do list if you put these suggestions to use, which will save you time and energy.
