Save the Date Invitations

Announce Your Special Day with Save the Date Wedding Invitations

The only way to ensure that your guests save the date and remember it is by having wedding invitations that don’t only capture the eye, but capture their attention too. As your special day approaches, chances are that stress and tension levels will be high, but now is not the time to fret. There is so much to do and so little time that the bride has to gather her nerves and start making decisions. One of the first decisions you will need to make after setting the date is what your invitations will look like. Are you looking for something classy and elegant or is your wedding going to be relaxed and fun?

Your wedding is a celebration of love and of each other and your wedding invitations should portray that message. You need to find some sort of balance that also incorporates the essence of both you and your partner. At Africa iDo you can expect to be assisted by professionals who are experienced in designing and creating invitations of distinction. After receiving your invitation, your guests will feel special to have been invited and will be eagerly looking forward to attending the event.

We pride ourselves on making use of paper that is of a very high quality. We also make use of top quality boards and accessories that will accent your invitation perfectly.

There are a few things that you will need to include on your wedding invitation and obviously the amount of information you plan to include will affect the size of the invite as well as the design. First and foremost your invitation is an announcement of your love and intention to marry. The date, time and venue must also be included. Make sure that there are simple driving directions for them to follow or at least include a map and a contact number for the venue, just in case some of your guests don’t know how to get there.

Next you will need to decide who will be handling your RSVPs. Make sure that a contact person is specified so that you can tally up the total number of guests you will have attending. This is vital for catering and décor purposes. Include details for your gift registry or what type of gifts you will be accepting on your invitation too. Your guests will want to spoil you – let them! Making a note of what type of attire your guests should wear is also a good idea. You don’t want your friends arriving in suits and evening wear if you’re planning a really relaxed event. Of course you can include anything you want on your invitation, but these are the general guidelines that most couples follow.

If you want to have the very best invitation that brings a smile to your face and has you and your guests excited about your special day, then take the time to work closely with a designer. You don’t need to spend a fortune on the design, but you will find that those experienced in the field will be able to create exactly what you want with relative ease and without the prices getting too high.
