The #1 overlooked item when planning a wedding

This post is a collaboration between myself and Basic Invite. All opinions are my own.


Weddings can be stressful. Not for the guests of course, but for the bride and groom themselves. With so much planning involved it’s easy to get overwhelmed and get lost in the details. Think about all the choices you need to make from venues to gown to wedding decor. Every part of a wedding is important. Yet, more often than not, one item keeps getting overlooked: the invitations.

Are invitations really that important?


Short answer, yes. The invitation has several purposes for a wedding. The main one is, of course, to provide useful information such as date, time and venue. But it can also be a preview to your guests of what the wedding theme will look like. They set the tone of the wedding. They create excitement and anticipation of what to expect.



Wedding invitations are also a reflection of the couple’s personal style. Beautiful invitations tell your guests that a lot of thought and effort is being put in the event. A plain invitation says this is just another wedding. As a guest, which one would you rather go to?

When you set the right tone, you are also creating anticipation for your guests. And anticipation is a great way to guarantee your big day will be remembered for years to come. 

Another reason to pay extra attention to your invitations is to make sure it will stand out from the crowd. Why would you want your invitations to stand out? Well, your wedding might not be the only one your guests get invited to that year. If they have to choose one, make sure they will choose yours. Give them an extra reason for that. What better way to do that then sending them a well-crafted invitation

Think how uneventful it is for someone to walk up to their mailbox these days. Regular mail is usually a mix of junk mail and bills. It sure is exciting to receive a colored envelope sealed with rhinestones. Who wouldn’t want to go to a well-planned party? Definitely, not something you get every day. 

Now that you know how important invitations are, how about starting the actual planning?


You want your invitations to be as unique as you are. That’s why it’s important to work with companies that can provide you with as many options as possible. Great customer service and quality products are also a must. It’s your wedding day after all. You deserve a one of a kind and stress-free experience.
