Personalize Your Wedding Invitations

Congratulations! You (or your loved ones) are getting married. If you’re looking at invitations, chances are you’ve already set the date.  Most likely, you’re trying to decide what type of wedding you want.  Will you invite everyone you know or keep it small and intimate?  Do you want a formal, black tie event, a casual gathering on the beach or something in-between?  Making these decisions first, will guide your stationary selection so that the invitation and correspondence you send, will appropriately reflect the day you’re planning. Wedding invitations should go in the mail 6 to 8 weeks prior to the big day.

On Invites Ink! you can shop by occasion or by manufacturer. For personal assistance, please e-mail or call us at 248-258-1657.


Follow this frazzle-free timeline as a guide – remember, you always should do what works for you with the ultimate goal of getting invitations out no later than 6 weeks prior to your event…8 weeks is even better, especially if you have a lot of out of town guests who need to make travel arrangements.

Choosing Your Invitation

Style, theme, colors and budget are all critical considerations when choosing your invitation. Focus on your own personal style when browsing the wedding invitation category.  If you and your fiancée have a casual home and lifestyle, you may not want a traditional, formal invitation.  If you are on a tight budget, be willing to look at different invitation manufacturers; you will be able to find something that fits your budget if you are open to a range of possibilities.

On Invites Ink! choose from 1000s of styles from dozens of companies including the prestigious Carlson Craft­­­­­­­.  You’ll not only find the perfect wedding invitation, but  Save the Date cards, Shower and Rehearsal Dinner invites and Calligraphy resources.

Invitation Wording

Many brides are baffled by the etiquette for wedding invitation wording. It’s not everyday we create a formal (or informal) wedding invitation! These days, there are many acceptable options, particularly since the family unit has changed; you may want to make reference to a deceased parent, have step parents or are looking for  a more modern approach overall.  Examples of invitation wording that references different scenarios are available on Invites Ink!  Just go to Invitation Wording for suggestions.
