Welcome to the fifth & final installment in this series of items that can easily get overlooked on wedding days!
I'm sure you've spent countless hours scrolling through wedding blogs & magazines & drooled over more than a few images.
Those photos of the wedding invitation all laid out just perfectly with the silk ribbon & the flowers surrounding it?
That doesn't just happen! It was planned!
pack a complete invitation suite
If you want these photos (& not everybody does, I know), the only way it happens is if you pack a complete invitation suite for the wedding day.
I've found that it's easiest to put that invitation in that same bag as your specialty items that I talked about last week. The invite & envelope, the RSVP card & envelope, the Accommodations card, Thank You cards, Save the Date (if you want). Pack it all!
Does your invitation have a design on the back of each card? Include two or three sets.
Did you have a calligrapher hand write all of your addresses? Include an envelope that hasn't been through the mail yet. This may mean you need to request a special envelope for this photo specifically.
Coming soon is a blog post that gives some pointers for adding a little bit of an editorial flair to photos.
