Choosing the right Invitation Style for your Jewish Wedding

Choosing the right Invitation Style for your Jewish Wedding

by on 06-30-2012 in Weddings

Your Jewish wedding invitations will be an essential part of your wedding theme.  Choosing the right style will set the tone for your overall wedding motif.  Like the chuppah wedding ceremony itself, it must be beautiful and personal.

Selecting the Design for your Jewish Wedding Invitations

There are thousands of ready-made Jewish wedding invitations to choose from; simply select a design, send the details in Hebrew and English, and the printer can have it ready within weeks.  With such a wide selection, it may be difficult to pick which one is best. Here are the things to consider: Formal or casual – Your wedding invitation will help complement the overall theme and tone of your wedding.  Are you planning a formal wedding or a casual wedding? A formal wedding may need classic script fonts, formal wording, and the traditional double envelope. While, a casual wedding invitation may use fonts that are more modern and wording that is more natural.  For example, instead of “we cordially invite you”, you could say “please join us”. Color - You should always choose a subdued color. If you are using a rather bright color for your motif, like turquoise, opt for a delicate ribbon trim or small accents at the sides or corners rather than applying it to the whole invitation. This will maintain the elegance of your wedding invitation, while allowing you to tie in your wedding invitations to your overall theme.

Wedding Invitation Inserts

A map would be very helpful, and would save many guests any inconvenience especially if the wedding is located in a place they are unfamiliar with. If you are trying to control the number of guests, insert a small card that says, “We have reserved __ seats for you.” This is a subtle and polite way of minimizing the headcount. Whichever design you choose, be sure to triple check the wording.  Have a friend proofread it for you as well.  They may be able to find a mistake you have overlooked. Mail them out 4-6 weeks (8 weeks for overseas guests) prior to your wedding. Your invitations do not have to cost a fortune to look stunning.  All you need is a professional printer who has the familiarity and experience to help you choose the right look and feel that will fit in with the theme of the wedding of your dreams.
