Oh it’s definitely official once you send out those invites to your guests!! Invitations let guests have an idea of what the wedding would be like; whether it’s the color of the wedding or if it goes with the theme of it. Guests enjoy feeling like they are finally going to be a part of your special day. Invitations can also be as simple as just a card in the envelope telling them the date, time and location of the wedding. It can also be as elaborate as including an rsvp card, dress code, drink cards (if there is a limit on drinks per guest), menu card, etc.
Invitations are a very crucial part in letting your guests know the details of your wedding. Adding an rsvp card allows the guests to let the bride and groom know whether or not they will be attending the wedding. That way, they can get a final guest count and not have to spend on extra seats if they don’t need to. Also, these cards can have a section where the guest can leave a note if they have a request for their dinner (i.e.: allergies to any foods). I find that sending out invitations that provide the guests with a bit more information about the wedding can really help them envision what the day would be like better. Sending out invitations just makes the wedding official and it’s a sign that the day is finally near for the bride and groom to tie the knot!!
