Predesigned or Custom Design?

Choosing the perfect design for your wedding invitations is a step in the planning process you don't want to skimp on.  Your invitation is the first introduction to your special day.  Let your invitations reflect the elegance and beauty.   Let the anticipation begin on the day that your guests open the luxurious envelope or elegant box that holds the invitation to your most lavish affair.

There are many beautiful invitation options.  The first decision to make is predesigned or custom design?  Predesigned invitations are available from a variety of printing companies from across Canada and the United States through invitation designers and retailers.  Many invitation designers carry numerous albums in a variety of different styles and price points in addition to their custom design work so that brides and grooms can easily compare their options.  Predesigned invitations are a great option for very large weddings or if a bride and groom are on a tight budget.  They are typically sold in quantities of 25 and the bulk of the cost is reflected in the first 25 invitations.  This covers the costs of proofing, plating and initial print.  Reprints are then printed at very minimal cost, thereby making this option very appealing to larger wedding parties.  The limitations to predesigned invitations is that the colours and styles are only available as sampled in most albums, therefore, if you have a particular colour scheme or theme that you would like to introduce and follow through for your wedding day you may have a limited selection.

For Brides and Grooms that would like a very specific style, theme or colour scheme or if the invitations need to be bilingual or even trilingual, then custom design is definitely the option of choice.  Custom Design offers a blank canvas and the creative design options are limitless.  All invitation designs can be created in any colour combination and your personal style can easily be reflected in your invitations.  Most custom invitation designers will also be very accommodating to multiple languages.  The invitation can either be designed to creatively include all languages on one invitation or invitations can be created and printed in each language selection individually.  Custom design also allows for the creation of matching stationery and accessories such as place cards, menus, programs, table charts and bonbonnieres. 

Custom design is unique, special and personal.  Your invitations will be one of a kind, a truly unique introduction to your much anticipated day.

When selecting or designing your perfect invitation, try to visit a designer that has both custom design as well as pre-designed options so that you can compare all of your beautiful options in one location at a single appointment.
