Three Reasons To Say “I DO” To Custom Invitations

Three Reasons To Say “I DO” To Custom Invitations
By Guest Blogger Amanda Lund, Weddings by Carue


With the average bride spending nearly $32,000 on her wedding, it’s understandable to make every penny count. But before you snag a couple boxes of print-your-own invitations and call it a day, we recommend looking into the advantages of custom, designer invitations that become instant keepsakes your loved ones will treasure.

The invitation is the gateway to your event.


Invitations set the tone for your wedding. It’s the first thing your guests will see, like a preview to the full cinematic experience. That’s why it’s so important to have your invitation reflect the color theme, level of formality, and the accurate details of what to expect on the big day. Custom invitations allow you to match colors and fonts that are truly reflective of the design that is created by you.

The invitation is just the beginning of ways to personalize your wedding printables.


Everything from programs, to table numbers, to seating charts carry the potential to “brand” your wedding. When personalizing invitations with custom colors and fonts, you can carry that design into the other printed pieces of your wedding all through the same vendor.

The details are the best part of an invitation.


Something as simple as adding a photo of the couple takes an invitation from just a piece of paper to something to add to the scrapbooks. Things like laser cut sleeves, belly bands, and pocket folds are simple ways to add elegance and uniqueness to your invitations.


We love sitting down with clients and helping them choose the colors, fonts, and details that match their voice and style.  With so many choices available on the market today, it’s nice to have someone in your corner who can guide you through the process. Once your invitations have been designed, we can do everything from printing to stuffing and sending them out.


Choices don’t have to complicate things. In fact, choosing custom over store-bought invitations actually simplifies the entire process. Going into a consultation knowing your theme and the level of formality of your event will streamline the process and leave you wishing all wedding planning were this easy.
