In many ways, shopping for your wedding ceremony is common sense, and nothing illustrates this more than the necessity of always getting a wedding invitation sample before buying them. Your wedding invitations are often the first impression that people have of your planned marriage, and getting them right is vital. By asking to see wedding invitation samples before ordering them, you can help guarantee that there won’t be any bad surprises.
Asking to see a wedding invitation sample may seem like a pretty simple and silly thing, but you’d be surprised how many brides and grooms fail to do just that while planning their wedding. Many people simply look through a catalog and order right away, rather than actually get their hands on a physical copy of a wedding invitation sample first.
By actually holding a sample of a wedding invitation in your hands, you may notice subtle differences that aren’t apparent in a catalog. The paper weight, the gloss or sheen, and even slight characteristics of the font and script writing are all things you might notice from a wedding invitation sample that you wouldn’t see in a book or picture.
And that means that you need to find an actual brick-and-mortar wedding store or print shop in order to speak face-to-face with the people who will design and print your wedding invitations. Ask to see a sample or mock-up of your favorite designs, and compare them side-by-side to make your discussion. You simply can’t make these decisions from a catalog, and having wedding invitation samples in front of you will help you make up your mind.
Never be afraid to ask a printer to see wedding invitation samples before you order them or pay, or you may end up making a decision you will regret. There’s no worse feeling than getting hundreds of wedding invitations and wishing you had gotten samples before buying!
