You will want all your important guests such as friends and family to be aware of the date well ahead of time. In addition, a finely crafted wedding invitation gives a lovely appearance of quality and a timeliness that can't be surpassed. The best part of wedding invitations is that there are so many different kinds to choose from. The colours used will no doubt be important for the couple as well as the overall layout. There are lots of websites you can work with if you have a special theme in mind. There are many custom options that can be tailored to really say something special. One sort of invitation to a wedding that is lovely is the embossed invitation. With the addition of heat and pressure, a 3 dimensional image is created. Engraved wedding invitations are another option and this is where the letters are raised slightly and indented on the opposite side of the paper. A popular choice with some couples is Thermography. Ink and powder are combined together and that gives a raised lettering effect that looks a lot like engraving but the letters usually look shiny. Royal weddings are great for the romantics and some people like to include some royal touches to the design of their wedding stationery.
