2. Decide on contents of the wedding card
First prepare a rough draft of what you want to be printed on the card. But remember to include the following points.
i. Name of the bride and groom’s parents
ii. Name of the bride and the groom
iii. Wedding Date & Time
iv. Wedding Venue
v. Theme (if any)
vi. RSVP in case anyone wants to contact for some query or information
vii. Contact Numbers of the significant people in relation to the wedding
3. Proofread the card before it goes for printing
Before one approves the printing of a wedding card, one should make sure he/she checks and re-checks the contents and everything in the card carefully so that no error will arise in the final copy.
Once the cards arrive from the press, one should carefully count the numbers, so that there is no dearth of cards to be distributed to the invitees.
4. Distribution of the cards
Once the cards are ready for distribution, one should make sure that the name are appropriately written on them and distributed in person to the people in the same town or city and through post or courier to the people outside.
5. Re-confirming the attendance of guests
Ensure that you have personally called each of the invitees before the wedding to make sure each of the guests have received the cards and will be coming over for the wedding. If you receive information about the cancellations of invitees, make sure you inform the decorators and caterers accordingly, so that no money is wasted. Moreover, one should keep in mind that none of the guests are offended because their friends or family members have not been called.
