The design theme of your wedding card should be the same as the theme of your wedding so that you can make a perfect concept. Deciding on a design theme makes the process of wedding invitation easier because you can already have an idea of what might work and not for the design of the wedding invitation card with the theme that you have chosen. Choose the font style, colors, printing styles, and other decorations that best support the agreed theme for the wedding and wedding invitation card.

2. Pick on the Right Paper
The paper choice for wedding card invitation printing is very important because different paper makes different quality outcome.

Vellum paper stock is translucent and usually used as a covering for thicker paper. But still, it can be directly printed on.
