## Wedding Cards
The wedding card is one of the most important pieces of wedding stationery. It’s the first thing guests see when they arrive at the wedding, and it’s the last thing guests will see before they leave the wedding.
It’s important to write a wedding card that reflects the couple’s personality and style, and that’s a lot easier to do than you might think. Here are some tips for writing an amazing wedding card:
1. Make it personal. Wedding cards should be personal, and they should reflect the personality of the bride and groom.
2. Personalize it. Personalize the wedding card with the bride’s and groom’s names, the wedding date, and the wedding location. If the couple is getting married in a different city than where they live now, include the city where the wedding is being held.
3. Include a photo. Include a photo of the couple on the wedding day. If you don’t have a photo, you can use a photo from the wedding website, or you can ask the couple to send a photo to you. Include the photo in the top right corner of the front of the card, or in the upper left corner if you’re using a fold-over wedding card. You can also include a photo at the bottom of the wedding invitation.
4. Keep it short. A wedding card should be short and sweet. You don’t want your wedding card to be so long that guests can’t read it. Keep it to two or three sentences.
## Writing a Wedding Invitation
Writing a wedding invitation can be a lot of fun, and there are a few things you should keep in mind when writing your wedding invitation:
1. Write it yourself. Writing your own wedding invitation is a great way to show off your creativity, and you’ll also be able to personalize it in a way that you couldn’t if you hired someone to write it for you.
2. Don’t forget to include the date. If you’re sending your wedding invitations by mail, you’ll need to write the date at the top of the invitation. If your wedding is taking place on a date that falls on a weekend or holiday, you may want to include that date in the invitation as well.
3. Be careful with the wording. Your wedding invitation should be clear and concise, but it should also be friendly and welcoming. You want your guests to feel like they’re invited to your wedding, not that they’re being forced to attend.
4. Have fun with it! You can be as creative as you want when it comes to the wording and design of your invitation. You’re the one who’s getting married, so you get to be the boss.
5. Send it out early. You’ll want to send your invitations out at least a month before your wedding date to give your guests plenty of time to RSVP. You’ll also want to make sure you have enough invitations to accommodate everyone who RSVPs.
6. If you’re having a destination wedding, include a map. It’s a good idea to include a detailed map of where you’re getting married so that your guests can find the location easily.
7. You don’t need to include your wedding website address on the invitation, but you can include it on the RSVP card.
