Planning a Wedding Suite Design
Save the Date
This is usually the first piece to be sent to your friends and family. It announces the date of your wedding and is usually saved as a keepsake. It can come in many forms such as a flat card, magnet or coaster and is sent 6 months prior to the wedding.
This is the most important piece of the wedding suite. It announces the name of the bride and groom and who is hosting the wedding for the bride and groom. This could be the brides's parents, groom's parents, the bride and groom themselves or a combination. Other information includes the date, time, location of the wedding and if there is a reception. It is usually sent at least 2 months prior to the wedding.
Bride and Groom Photo, Gift Tag, Ribbon, Label and Belly Band
Some or all of these design elements may be included in the invitation design.
RSVP Response Card or Postcard
This card is usually sent along with the invitation and includes a reply by date. On the card, the guest should indicate if they are coming, the number of guests and meal preference. And don't forget to stamped and addressed the postcard or the return envelope for the card.
This card includes the name and location of the reception and any other important information, such as a map. The card is either included with the invitation or sent separately. If sent separately, the design may be altered slightly from the invitation, such as a complimentary color.
Thank You Card
Another opportunity to alter the wedding invitation design is in the Thank You note. This card should be sent 3 months after the wedding.
Table Number Card
These cards identify each table at the reception. They can be the main design element of a table scape or a compliment.
The place card is used along with the seating chart to indicate where each guest is to sit. If placed on the table before the guests arrive, the place card design can be a mini table scape of it own.
