Wedding Invites - Acrylic vs. Wood

wedding invites engraved

Your wedding invitation is the first impression many of your guests will be given about your big day. And you know what they say; you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. With invite options available in materials from acrylic to wood to magnetic, gone are the days when selecting paper design was your only consideration.

So when deciding on your wedding invites it's important to think about what kind of impression you would like to create. Are you thinking fun and funky with a relaxed vibe, or are we talking a formal black-tie affair that oozes stylish sophistication? This should help you determine which wedding invites are right for you.

Setting expectations

Whichever end of the spectrum you are leaning towards - or perhaps a middle ground - your invitations should reflect the individual style of event you are trying to achieve. Don't hyperventilate just yet - you don't have to have your exact colour theme decided on, (although some organised brides do like to team their invites to their wedding colour scheme), but be aware that your choice of wedding invite will set the expectations for many guests about your main event.
