Background information about my wedding – I am from a very rural area and the wedding will not be super formal (more like nice church appropriate clothing, not black tie, etc).
I have started brainstorming ideas for wedding invitations and have come up with an idea to incorporate my future last name (Reason) into the invitations. I am thinking of doing something along the lines of ‘Top 5 Reasons to Attend Our Wedding’ or something like that. Too cheesy?
Also, any suggestions on invitation websites would allow me to essentially make a completely customized invite?
Thanks in advance! Xoxo

@Dareyou42: If you are having an informal wedding, have an informal invitation. BUT have a card that just has the hard and fast details. People want and need information from your invitatoins – Where? When? What do I wear? Some people are just going to skim the invitation for that, so make it clear and obvious. If you accomplish that objective, go nuts with whatever other fun stuff you want to have!
I’d say something like:
Blah blah wording saying come to the wedding at:
TIME on DATE at LOCATION
Top 5 Reasons to Attend this Fantastic Wedding:
1. Look how hip and off beat our invitatoins are!
2. and so on through 5

@Dareyou42: It sounds like a cute idea! If I got a “list” type invitation, I would assume it was pretty casual. Like… maybe a backyard reception or a big party without a sit down dinner.
You could use it as a save the date regardless of the formality of the wedding, though.

you can customize the text on a lot of the designs on minted.com and weddingpaperdivas.com, you just have to click through past the first few pages to the “personalize” step. they also have designers that you can write notes too who will adjust. we got our STDs from Minted and our invites from WPD and i’m thrilled with both.
keep an eye out for 15-25% off coupon codes too, they pop up often and it was a pleasant surprise to save a bit of money.
