Planning a wedding is not an easy task. That is why if you are thinking of getting married, you may want to begin your preparations months before the Big Day. Choosing a wedding invitation alone can take up a lot of your time, and you wouldn’t be able to make a wise choice when you are pressed for time already. Most brides-to-be are concerned with how their wedding invitation will look. They spend so much time poring over the style, design, materials and other embellishments. These are very important, of course, but you also need to pay attention to the other details of the invitation – the wordings. People tend to take the wordings for granted because they have not come to realize that wordings do make quite an impression. Wordings, of course, include the text and the font style. Since weddings are formal events, your wordings must convey formality, too. The Old English script is a common choice of font for traditional wedding invitations, but for modern invites, there can be plenty of other choices. An important consideration when choosing a particular font, besides the formality factor, is clarity. There are many font styles that look absolutely attractive, but they can be difficult to understand. Go for something simple, instead, a style that will not give your guests an eyestrain. Traditional invitations often contain verses that are appropriate to weddings, but these are not a requirement. Some invitations are so wordy they don’t make any sense at all. What you shouldn’t miss are your names, the date of the wedding, and the venue. Choosing the right wordings has been made easier now with the availability of wedding invitation catalogs. Once you have made your choice, ask for a draft copy of the invitation before finalizing your order. Go over the words one by one and have someone else go over them, too, so you can be certain that the details, including the spelling, are all correct. Whether the couple chooses to stick with the classic Edwardian font or the more modern, simple font the wedding invitation return envelope will need to be printed using a clean, larger font. Most postal services will not take the time to figure out the scripting on the envelope to send the return card through. Instead, they will return the card to the sender and the guest will believe you are no longer getting married.
