Welcome to the fifth & final installment in this series of items that can easily get overlooked on wedding days!

1. Prepping Your Wedding Dress & Veil
2. Pack an Overnight Bag
3. Pack an Emergency Kit
4. Pack Your Jewelry & Special Accessories Bag
5. Pack a Complete Invitation Suite

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!

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.
