All invitation designs fall into some kind of category like historic, traditional and so on. You need to finalize a category and then the design. Maybe the couple loves some era or may have a destination wedding, so according to that, pick the theme.

1. Finalize a design

Here are some famous categories:

Traditional: It is elegant and timeless, and goes with both informal and formal weddings. Use floral borders, scripted fonts and so on to enhance this theme.

Bride-groom theme cards: An Indian card theme in which the card has caricatures of bride and groom. It is mesmerizing giving the card a royal look.

Retro: Use a retro design that gives a feel of the 50s and 60s. It will look simple and elegant.

2. Choose a beautiful typeface

Invitation cards have limited space for text, and if you add too much text, it will look messy. Thus, chose a beautiful, elegant and readable font that makes your design shine even more. The most famous fonts are- calligraphy, scripts, brushes, handwriting fonts.

Select a font that has a lasting impact like Allura and Caslon. A typeface can make your invitations look bad or good, so invest some time and research.

Tips: Mix an elegant typeface with a serif or san serif font for a contrasting effect between elements. For names of the bride and groom, use a different and special font.

3. Don’t forget to involve key content

Designs, typefaces, and colors are all important. But the most important part of the wedding invite is information. It is awesome to include poetry, but make sure the card answer these questions:

  • Name of the bride and groom
  • When and where is the marriage?
  • If there is any theme or dress code, mention that.
  • Who should I RSVP too?
  • Provide a GPS location or map on the back of the card.

4. Use photos on the card

Using your own photos or other images on the layout of your wedding card can give a different look to your card altogether. It makes the card design look fresh, unique and modern. To give a more contemporary look, use the image on the background.

5. Align the text centrally

Since many decades, the text and typeface of the cards are centrally aligned. It is best to follow that practice even though your card has a modern or contemporary look. The reason behind this is that it makes the text look more important and notable. It also distinguishes the text from other things like the design so that people can pay more attention to it.

6. Use & not And
