Get inspired from our invitation photo gallery full of all shapes, sizes, and designs! Remember, it’s your guests’ first peek at your wedding style, so to help you get started here’s a few tips to keep in mind: know your color scheme, choose your wording wisely, make the font legible, check the proof not once but two or three times, order extra envelopes, and do a weigh-in at the post office before you put a stamp on it.

Grab a plate, napkin, and silverware and be sure to check out our favorite designs for ways to inform them what’s on the menu here.

Although ceremony programs are not entirely essential, your guests may be grateful for them as they answer important questions about your big day! No more worrying about who’s who in your wedding party and what’s on the schedule, your guests can relax and enjoy the full impact of your ceremony. Plus with an array of unique ideas, you can be as straightforward or creative as you like. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
Board - Rather than going the paper route, many couples are opting for the non-traditional board to communicate to guests all the important ceremony information they need. This is a great option to save paper, prevent any rattling pages as the ceremony takes place and saves time on clean up!

Book or Pamphlet -This is the most traditional and common program style. Yet with so many designs out there, it’s easy to make it truly unique to you and your wedding style. Book and pamphlet programs also make great keepsakes for your guests to remember your big day.
