…Adding the Personal Touch!
Photo wedding invitations really help to make a traditional part of the wedding a bit more personalized. These are such a great way to celebrate your love for each other and to show the world how you feel. You can take a photo of the two of you – or of something that is important to you both – and use that as the backdrop of the invitation itself.
This is an ingenious way of capturing your sentiments in the first element of your wedding that your guests will see. Everyone loves to get a picture and so it adds a very personal and special touch to the invitation!
Though there are many vendors out there who can accommodate photo invitations, you do want to take the time to be sure that they have experience in this area. This isn’t a specialty that everybody has and therefore you want to look into the examples that they have to show. A good, reputable vendor in this area should be happy to show you their portfolio since this showcases a special skill that they will want to exhibit to potential clients.
Though there are plenty of qualified vendors out there, unfortunately there are some who just want to get in on this craze and the quality they offer may not be as great. So how do you know what to look for when you are considering photo wedding invitations for your special day?
- Look for experience because that really counts. Go for photographers or vendors with that type of background. Alternatively select a vendor that can work well with photographers or one that comes as a recommendation from someone you trust. This is an area in particular where experience can really help to tell the story – and you want it to be a good one.
- It’s all about the quality because just one little glitch can really throw things off. You don’t want the photo that is selected to look grainy or be produced in a lower resolution than is required. Therefore, you should discuss the resolution and the quality of photo to be used with the vendor.
- Always ask for a proof before the final invitations are produced. This is where you can look for flaws and ensure that the quality is what you expect it to be. Consider using the vendor first of all for the “Save the Date” cards or something similar. This will allow them to showcase their skills before they produce the actual invitations.
Have a Backup Plan
If you are going the route of photo wedding invitations, it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan. You should select a first choice for the photo to be used, but then it’s crucial to have a couple as backups. You can select a vendor, but if for some reason the proof doesn’t come back as nice as you’d like it, then you should have a couple of other vendors to choose from. This is an important part of your wedding planning and therefore you want it to be presentable and beautiful with detail.
Photo wedding invitations are a great way to show off a very personal side of who you are as a couple. Many brides and grooms like these invitations because they ensure that people can see who they will be celebrating on the special day. This is an excellent way to show off an engagement photo of the two of you or something that is important to you. Though all wedding invitations are important, these are very customized and allow you to show off who you are and how you feel about each other. Though not all vendors are created equally, if you take the time to really select the right one, then you will end up with something gorgeous and memorable for a lifetime.
