Looking for tips to create the perfect wedding invite? From chic designs that match your wedding theme perfectly to personalised wedding stationery that celebrates the happy couple – we’ve got you covered!

Creating a beautiful wedding invitation is one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning journey. Whether you’re planning a minimalistic and chic soiree or a huge family-filled extravaganza, personalised wedding stationery is a fantastic way to build up to the big day in style. Thankfully, creating the wedding stationery of your dreams couldn’t be easier with bonusprint – because who needs more stress in the wedding planning process?

With a massive collection of exclusive wedding invitation designs to choose from, simply browse our wedding cards collection and find the perfect match for your wedding theme. Most of our wedding invite designs come with coordinating wedding thank you cards, save the dates and wedding photo books, too, making the entire process as seamless as possible.

Before creating your custom wedding invitations, decide on the best time to send your invites out. Each couple differs, but traditionally a wedding invitation is sent out around 8-12 weeks before the wedding day.

To ensure that your guests know ahead of time and can plan their attendance, consider sending out a save the date as soon as you have your wedding date confirmed. This is especially important for destination weddings. Give your guests plenty of notice – aim for six months before the date or longer. There’s no such thing as sending out a wedding invite too early. Besides, it gives everyone more time to get excited and enjoy the process!

We can’t help you with the selection process of who to invite, but we sure can help you create the wedding invitation of your dreams. Enjoy our nine tips to create a wedding invite.

1. Personalised wedding invitations

The first of our tips to create a wedding invite with bonusprint is personalise, personalise, personalise! Your wedding invitation and save the date stationery are the first look at your special day. Using our online editor, you can easily upload your favourite photos of the couple to your wedding invitation. Add your unique flair and create something fun, chic or traditional. Do it your way.

2. Represent the wedding theme

The great thing about personalised wedding stationery is that you have the chance to match your wedding theme perfectly. Is it a traditional white wedding or dark and elegant? Are you going for a boho bride vibe or urban chic? Will you be enjoying modern nuptials or a rustic country wedding? Whatever your wedding theme, we have you covered. Use one of our designs as a starting point and customise your wedding invitation to perfection.

Most of our wedding stationery designs also have a matching wedding photo book so you can treasure the memories forever.

4. It’s all about the typography

Finding the best font for your wedding stationery is simple with the bonusprint online editor.

When designing your personalised wedding stationery, simply use our prefilled text and edit it to make it a little more personal. Feeling inspired? Use our text as a foundation to write your own texts for your personalised wedding stationery.

7. Explore digital wedding invites

Though personalised wedding stationery is a fantastic and personal way of sending out your wedding information, sometimes the easiest way to send an invite to wedding guests that live abroad is digitally. With bonusprint, it’s easy. Once you’ve ordered your wedding invites, simply take a screenshot of your final product and send it to your loved ones from afar over email, WhatsApp or Facebook.
