Tell them how you want your wedding to be like. Are you having a particular theme or style? Beach, rustic, vintage, country, modern, fairytale, greenery? The list is endless. Tell them a little bit about your wedding so they can help you to come up with some ideas.
2, Search for A Wedding Stationery Vendor

3, Gather Your Wedding Details Together
Once you have an idea of what kind of wedding invitation you want, it’s time to get those wedding information on paper. A few nitty gritty you may want on your wedding invitation include:
- Your names
- Your wedding date and time
- Your wedding and reception location
- Include a dress code
- Are you allowing children to join on the day?
- Your wishing well or wedding registry
- Your wedding website
- Your RSVP date and contact details
- Any parking or accomodation info
- Request for dietary requirements
It’s always helpful to get someone to proofread your wedding invitation wording before you get them printed. Your wedding stationery vendor should also be able to give you some suggestions if you need any.
