7 Common Mistakes You Need to Avoid While Handling Your Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invites are one of the basic elements of the wedding planning, and for some unfathomable reason most couples choose to treat them as unimportant. Wedding invites are the first impression of what your wedding is going to be like so make it a prelude. You can use them to convey the theme of your wedding, the nature of the couples’ relationship, and what the guests should expect the wedding to be like. Due to the common causal attitude, we have seen some glaring mistakes regarding the wedding invites that you can avoid, simply by being more attentive. In this article, we have brought them to you, so you will know to look for them. (Look at some pretty invitations while you are at it.)

Our suggestion: Choose some grammar-freak, nitpicky, and dependable cousin to handle the invites.

  1. Spelling Errors

Yes, a typo can happen. (Shudder!)

You have to proofread your card for the spelling errors. Check the couple’s names’ spellings, and any other names mentioned on the card. It is only polite to print correct spellings, or preferred spelling (in case of names). It’s not your place to judge if people spell their names funny (Xeeshan instead of Zeeshan, Aly instead of Ali, or even Hocane instead of Hussain). Also check for; there/their, your/you’re spelling to be spelled in the right context.

  1. Inappropriate Worded Invites

Since we are desi people, who made English their own. We do misuse words so thoroughly that they are an expected norm. So please pay attention while wording your invitation. Don’t mention your degrees, or qualification on the wedding invite. We find it tasteless when people print Dr., Adv., or (Heaven Forbid!) MBA. We are not kidding you, we’ve seen it happen. You want people to see you as a person, and not a label. It’s a wedding, not a professional ‘meet ‘n greet’.

Wedding Cards

  1. Misprinting Date, Time or Venue

That’s purely disastrous. You should make a real effort to communicate the details of the event because they are the basic purpose of the invite. You should check and recheck if the details of the event are mentioned correctly. Any mistakes will come to haunt you at the wedding, when everyone is calling everyone checking the place and time. Enclose a map, and a contact number inside in case of any ambiguity.

  1. Recipient’s Name Error

When you are sealing the envelopes and are writing the names of the recipient, jot down proper spellings. One mistake that we have noticed that people write the titles wrong, on the invitations. Blunders like mentioning Mr. & Mrs. ________, when one of invited spouses isn’t anymore, is in bad taste. Take time to know your guests, and maybe call them to properly spell their names. We know people who will appreciate the effort. Besides, calling in person, prior to sending invitation is a courtesy you should extend to your closest relatives.

  1. Poor Paper Quality

If you are using recycled paper, do mention that. In any other case, wedding stationery is a big deal. You don’t want your wedding invite to feel scratchy or wrong color and textured at an occasion as auspicious as your wedding. Choose the paper stock carefully, and then make sure that the vendor hasn’t botched the order.

  1. Ordering Too Late

You don’t want to wait until the last minute to place your wedding orders because they are likely to arrive later than when they are due. Emergencies of all kinds can happen, and you have all this proofreading to do. The closer to the wedding you receive the invites, the harder it is going to be to pay attention to all these minor details.

  1. Ordering Too Few or Too Many Invites

This is another most common problem. You need to make sure that your envelopes and card are the right number. You don’t want any important guests missing out. Also, do order a few extra cards to ensure that if any card has some error, there is another to replace it. You can also use one as a keepsake to show your kids someday. It will be a wonderful thing to preserve.
