Once fixed the wedding date, the Venue, and the guest list, the next step is thinking about the wedding invitations. The most traditional choice is a double or single face card, white, ivory or pastel coloured. The writing, in italics, could be grey, black or sepia. As for the favor boxes, the invitations are one per each family. Six months before the wedding is the right time to order them. Remember that they must be sent 3 months before the wedding, in order to give the guests the chance to RSVP.
