Planning Factors In Brief

There are many factors to consider to order event invitations. Many of these planning factors are listed below. Based on your level of knowledge and experience, you may need to choose from one of the four service levels offered by Action Invitations.

Ensemble Item Options

There are many ensemble items to choose from. Some are needed for every event, and some only in certain situations. Some ensemble items you may need include:

  • Invitations
  • Announcements
  • Inner envelopes
  • Outer envelopes
  • Reception cards
  • Respond cards and matching addressed respond envelopes
  • Informal notes / Thank-you cards
  • Save-the-date cards, magnets or accessories
  • Table place cards

Envelope Options

There are many envelope options to choose from to make your once-in-a-lifetime event easier to manage. Some factors to consider:

  • Do you want to order extra envelopes, in case you make mistakes in addressing?
  • Do you want to order Quickseal self-sticking envelopes, if available with your invitation?
  • Do you want your return address printed on the back flap of the invitation?
  • Will your invitations include one set of envelopes, or will they include inner and outer envelopes? What is traditional? How do you know?
  • Are you familiar with protocol and customs for addressing the inner and outer envelopes, and the differences between them?
  • Will you include envelope liners for your inner envelopes to add a splash of color and coordinate with the designs, colors, or themes of your special day?
  • Are you interested in optional services to print your guest names on your invitations? Do you understand what is involved?
  • Will your envelopes be printed in an ink color to match the theme of your event and the color of your invitations or announcements?

Wording or Verse Options

Once you have chosen the perfect invitations items and envelopes, you need to find exactly the right wording to fit the personalities and the event.

Whether you are getting married, throwing a bar or bat mitzvah, having an engagement party, or celebrating an anniversary, retirement, or graduation, you need to know exactly the right way to word your invitation or announcement.

In addition, an event's planning can be seriously impaired if the quality of information you get from your response cards is low. How can you word your response cards to get exactly the information you need? Our expert staff can help.
