Is it a formal affair?

Is it casual?
This should make it easy to choose the invitations. In this case, the invitations should reflect the theme.
Don’t break the bank.
Don’t forget to set the budget stick to it. In many cases, this means that you might have to get creative with invitations.

Split them up.
If you need to make that dollar stretch, send the more fancy invitations to family and very close friends, and ones that fit the theme, but are more economical to everyone else on your list. Don’t be afraid to use e-invitations as well. All these things can help stretch that budget, and allow you to invite everyone on your list.

Dress up the simple…

Always keep in mind that you still have to follow-up to get a set number of people in attendance.

Until next time…
