Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. No one NEEDS custom wedding invitations. That’s not necessarily true at all. There are just certain aspects of custom wedding invitations that just make sense for some couples and weddings. Below I explain a few circumstances where custom wedding invitations just make sense for you.
Okay so firstly— custom invitations are a blessing if you are having a destination wedding. Not only do you have an immense amount of information you need to explain to your guests, but you also have the opportunity to showcase that beautiful destination venue you are paying oh so much for!
Seriously, if you’re getting married someplace warm, beautiful and tropical, you should absolutely showcase that ALL over your invitations. This not only makes your invitations absolutely beautiful, but it shows your guests exactly where they are putting their money and just how amazing your wedding will be!
Along with showcasing your venue comes venue illustrations. If you are getting married at an unique venue with amazing architecture and features, a venue illustration might be perfect for you. Or, if you’re getting married in your parents backyard or someplace extremely special to you both, GET A VENUE ILLUSTRATION.
Venue illustrations add such a beautiful, elegant and classy touch to your invitations. Whether you opt to use a more elegant line art illustration or you want to make it bright and fun with watercolors, venue art is seriously such a great way to level up your invitations.
Another reason (by far the most important) you need custom wedding invitations is the experience you’ll have from working one-on-one with a professional wedding invitation designer. I don’t say that lightly or because I am a wedding invitation designer. I say that because it is truly an amazing experience that I wish everyone could afford to have (this is why I designed my Invitation Shop affordable invitations FYI…) NOTHING about wedding planning is easy unless you hire a wedding planner who is going to do everything for you. But even then, you’re going to need to know what the hell they are talking about. But I promise you, working with a wedding invitation designer on custom wedding invitations is EASY. It is easy, it is so so so much fun, and it is relaxing. It is relaxing seeing all of your pieces come together without having to lift a finger or worry if all of your information is getting covered. So while custom wedding invitations are truly so beautiful and luxury, the most important aspect of custom invitations is the experience and ease you’ll have.
Let ONE part of your wedding planning process be fun and easy— hire a custom wedding invitation designer for custom invitations. And trust me, you can find someone you can afford, just do your searching :)
