At Exclusive Invites, we make your stationery to fit your style. Here are some etiquette history guidelines to help you decide how you would like to have your stationery made. You let us know how you would like things worded and we will follow your cue.
Who's Name should go first on the Invitation?
Traditionally, The brides name goes first on the wedding invitation and heres why:
Before you are married you are Miss Jane Smith. After you are married you will forever be referred to as Mr & Mrs Jeremy Stoneham. Women, once married are traditionally are referred to a second after the man. Having the "ladies first" etiquette is a tradition. You may choose to have the mans name first just because it fits better into a design.
Should we include our registry info on our invitations or save-the-dates?
In a word, maybe. Your wedding invitation lets guests know how much you love them and want them to be by your side on your wedding day. Including registry info on the wedding invitations or save-the-dates is still considered impolite because it can come off as though you're asking for gifts. Tell your wedding party, parents and close friends where you are registered, and let them fill guests in. Putting your registry info on a wedding website is perfectly acceptable. However there are those that love knowing what you want and where to get it. If you do include registry info within your sets we recommend putting it on an insert and not directly on the invite itself.
We're having an adults-only wedding (no kids). How can we make sure this is clear to our guests?
Address your invitations correctly -- to each guest by name, not “and guest" -- and guests should understand that the invite is meant for only those mentioned. If you find that some reply with their children's names added, give them a call and explain that you're having an adults-only wedding and that you hope they can still attend.
You can also put "Adult only event" on your information card or rsvp to be even more clear.
Do we have to invite every guest with a date or a “plus-one"?
No, you don't have to. If a guest isn't married or in a serious relationship, it's perfectly acceptable to invite them solo. Most guests will understand that without “and Guest" or another name on the invitation means they aren't invited with a plus-one. What to do if a guest RSVPs for two? Call them up and explain that you're having an intimate wedding and, unfortunately, you were not able to invite everyone with a guest.
Photos. We all love them. We want to use them on our save the dates, invites, wine labels, table numbers and so on. Unfortunately, not all photographs are created equally. Exclusive Invites will only print photos that are at industry print standard of 300 dpi or dots per inch. Photos that are 72 dpi are screen resolution only. Some photographers will give you two sets of photos, one which are high for print and another, low for web uploads.
What is D.P.I. and how it will affect your print job?
D.P.I. or "Dots per Inch" is the measurement used within the printing and graphics design industry to determine how sharp an image is. Web graphics and online photos are normally created at 72dpi (dots per inch). This low resolution is great for the web because the images look excellent on a computer monitor and the file sizes are very small which helps web pages load faster. However, when using photos for printing purposes, your images should be 300dpi or better.
How do I know which photo is high resolution?
If your unsure send it over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will check your resolution for you :)
