Why Choose Luxury Wedding Invitations?
If there is any time when it is perfectly ok to splash out on a bit of luxury then it is your wedding day. You’re probably only going to do this once in your life so every bit of it should be as special as you can make it. Alongside more obvious preoccupations such as your dress, venue, food etc, your wedding invitations are an important part of your day. For this reason, whilst it may cost you a little more, it’s worth finding a good bespoke designer to produce some luxury wedding stationery to really reflect who you are.
A lot of people will overlook the important role of invitations in a wedding, but they can actually help establish the tone for the whole day. To begin with, they serve a very practical function: they need to be sent out early enough so that your guests can save the date. But there is far more to them than this.
For example, if you have a special theme for your wedding then your invitations can be designed to tie in with this. Your guests will already know what to expect on the day. Also, if the invitations are very special then they can serve as mementoes of the occasion for your friends and loved ones.
But why go to bespoke designers to get luxury wedding stationery? Why not just buy them ready-made or design them yourself? Well, to begin with you if hire professional designers then you get the benefit of expert advice. You may not know about type-setting, colour balance, wording, lay-out or anything like that and it’s more difficult to learn than you might think. If you want your invitations to evoke a certain feel, then this will take skill. Also, bear in mind that if you try to learn these skills and make the invitations yourself you are taking up valuable time that could be more usefully spent planning other aspects of your wedding.
Consider also that bespoke stationery will be far more original than buying it ready-made. You are paying for a one-off product that will reflect your tastes and own personal style. You will be provided with a consultation during which the designer will sit down with you and talk about exactly what you want your invitations to look like. If you choose a small local stationer you will also be doing your bit to support creative small businesses – better by far than buying mass-produced invitations.
