{The look...The feel...of Invitations}

You might be thinking- I'm going to have to place my invitation order online, but I highly recommend you and your groom making an in-store consultation with Kristin from
Happily Ever After Invitations. Sit down with some albums that you'll be able to touch , see and hold the samples of.  Become familiar with a few of the popular printing methods.  There's offset printing, where letters are inked flat on the paper- its a very budget-friendly option.  Then you have letterpress and engraving, where the ink is actually pressed into the paper.  Finally, there is thermography, which is more of an embossing on the paper which gives it a raised effect.  Talk with Invitation designers and wedding planners to decide which method works best for your design, paper stock, etc.

The invitations are just a piece of the stationary puzzle.  If you really want to pull everything together, make sure to ask about coordinating ceremony programs, escort cards, menu cards and than-you cards.
