"The wedding invitation gives guests a first impression of the fete ahead. Couples are using the invitations to make a bold statement about their upcoming celebration, sending everything from uniquely crafted boxed correspondence to custom video messages. Memorable and delightful invitations set the stage for an epic party. Typography is leading the charge as the chicest design detail in invitations, along with handcrafted illustrations, both of which are often incorporated into the wedding day décor as well. The cost of over-the-top invitations can quickly add up, but couples are playing it smart by inviting fewer guests and using tools like digital RSVPs on their personal wedding websites on The Knot to save on postage."
