Custom invitations can be designed for any upcoming wedding, anniversary, or birthday party. Unique invitations are a nice addition to photos and other special keepsakes. Our event planner can help you find the perfect solution for your specific invitation needs. In this article, a 90th birthday party is our example to help illustrate the process and to give suggestions for how you might choose to design your special invitations.
Time will never stand still, and those moments that bring us such joy become memories in an instant. To capture such a moment and record it forever is truly monumental. – Joshua Atticks, Wedding Photographer
Tips from an Event Planner on Custom Invitations
Collect example images of what you want. Pinterest is a great starting point. If you are not comfortable on the computer, you can simply pick up a few of your favorite magazines and cut out images that inspire you.
Once the tone and vision have been set, the next step is to work with the design itself. A designer will combine the information about the event with the graphics. Event invitations include basic information such as the event’s name, date, time, location, and RSVP. In our example, the designer suggested four different photos for the invitation, and the best one was chosen by the event planner, Zohe Felici.
The final step is to review and adjust until it’s perfect. This might include changing the font, removing or adding a few words, and playing with the color choices. It is not uncommon to go back and forth two or three times to get everything right.
When you are working with an event planner, it’s possible for them to coordinate your special invitations because they will cohesively brand a full theme for your event, including all of its important information, such as the venue and guest list.
