If you are wondering how to pick your wedding invitations, we’ve got your back! Choosing your invites is one of the very first things on the list. It sets the tone and scheme for the entire wedding from the get-go. They allow your guests to see the color scheme and vibe to expect on the big day. Your invitations are supposed to make a big statement. But how do you go about choosing them? Honestly, if you are a first-time bride, these big questions often go unanswered without a quick google or some Pinterest research. Luckily, that brought you here! So here are the best tips on how to pick your wedding invitations.
How To Pick Your Wedding Invitations
There are a few different categories to assess when picking your invites.
- Color Scheme
- Wedding Date
Firstly, let’s tackle the budget. This is a fairly easy one! But it’s extremely important. Set your invite budget from the start so you know which websites to explore and which to avoid (so you don’t get FOMO). Minted, Zazzle and Basic Invite are a few of our favorite invite websites. All of these have different price points but still provide some pretty rad options.
Secondly, choosing based on your color scheme. Obviously, this is a big one. If you haven’t chosen your color palette yet, stop reading this and FIGURE IT OUT! There are no big decisions that can be made until this one has been decided upon. Once you pick those colors, you can filter invitations online BY color- making it exceptionally easy to find the ones that are a good fit for what you are looking for.

Choosing The Perfect Wedding Invitation
Your wedding date matters. Obviously, because you need to put it front and center on the main invitation. But also because the time of year you are getting married plays a large role in which set you choose. Especially if you are choosing a holiday or special date that could be themed when choosing.
For example, my husband and I got married on Halloween. We chose a very unique ouija board themed wedding invite themed for our holiday!
Lastly, your vibe. Possibly the MOST important part of making this decision. What is your wedding day vibe? Are you hoping for a rustic, barn wedding? Or are you leaning towards an elegant, clean feel? What does your wedding Pinterest board say about the ambiance?
No matter the decision making steps, have fun with picking. Besides, you only get one wedding invitation- make it count!
