Cleveland Wedding Invitations by brittney nichole designs

So, you’re at the stage of needing your Cleveland Wedding Invitations, but not sure where to start? Of course, we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 tips to take your invitation game to the next level.


First, start looking through magazines and Pinterest for wedding invitation designs that you love and figure out what styles you like most. This will help you design the perfect invitations for your big day. 

2. Define your WEDDING style.

Without a doubt, your wedding invitations will be your guests’ first glimpse into your wedding. This means that you should take the opportunity to let your guests know what kind of wedding to expect. Elegant? Casual? Modern?

3. Keep your colors in mind.

Incorporating your wedding colors into your invitations and the rest of your wedding stationery, especially menus and programs, can indeed create a more cohesive look. This will tie everything together nicely and complete your vision.

4. Make sure they’re readable and clear.  

Remember: the point of invitations is to certainly communicate the date, time, and location of your wedding. If the color scheme or design makes these details hard to see, then you’ll definitely want to make some changes.

5. Be creative.

invitations traditionally come in a 4.5-inch by 6.25-inch rectangular shape, but there are a variety of shapes and sizes available, including circular, square, and even scalloped edges. Don’t be afraid to try something new, but along with looking different, different sized invitations may cost more to mail. Also, you don’t want to do anything that may be considered too much or tacky.


Instead of ordering the precise number of invitations you’ll need, order 25 to 30 extra, just in case because it’s better to have too much than not enough. Additionally, if any get lost in the mail or you remember someone to invite last minute, you’re covered.

7. Avoid clutter and confusion.

Obviously, make sure to only include the essential info on your invites: ceremony time and location, your names, the dress code, and RSVP information. But, when it comes to things such as directions to the venue, include those on your wedding website or a separate enclosure card.

8. Double and triple-check.

You absolutely don’t want any typos on your wedding invitations. Reprints can be expensive, so ask several people to proofread for any errors.

9. Customize the envelopes.

When it comes time to mail out your invites, look for stamps that match. Check the U.S. Postal Service website for wedding-themed stamps or ones that match your colors. Also, calligraphy on envelopes can go a long way and they look great in photographs.

10. Stick with your maiden name.

Last, but not least, if you’re planning on changing your last name, save it and your new monogram for your thank you cards.
