When it comes to planning a wedding, your mind can easily be pulled in dozens of directions at once. There are so many things to plan and arrange, including delicious catering services, décor, and the all-important venue. As important as it is to make sure the biggest details are all squared away, it is also important to make sure the little details don’t get completely overlooked in all the excitement. Your wedding announcements are one of those small, but immensely important details that you should pay special attention to in the months leading up to your wedding. Here are a few of the most common wedding invitation faux pas to avoid.
Specifically stating “no children” on your announcements comes across as rude and uncouth. Instead, address the inner envelope that accompanies each wedding invitation to those who are invited to attend. For example, if you want Bob and Julie to come without bringing their children, address their inner invitation envelope to only them and no one else. If you address the envelope to “Bob, Julie and Family”, you are essentially sending them permission to bring whomever they want to bring from their immediate family.
There is no need to list alcohol details on your invitation. It is not pertinent information and it shouldn’t affect who does or does not attend your celebration.
No bride-to-be has time to hand-write her return address on every single envelope. You will have big enough challenge on your hands filling out the recipient addresses, so save yourself some time by purchasing silver or blue address labels for your wedding announcement envelopes. Add personalized postage stamps to your envelopes to add a surprising touch of charm to each one.
Avoiding common wedding invitation faux pas will help ensure that you don’t offend anyone or make any unintended missteps in the months leading up to your anticipated day.
