How to Add Dress Code to Wedding Invitation

Description:

Mentioning dress code on your wedding invitations if you want guests to know. If your ceremony and reception are at the same location, the wedding dress code should be printed at the bottom right or bottom center of your invitation. This is known as corner copy, and is available on most wedding invitations. If the ceremony and reception are in separate locations, your dress code should be printed on both reception card and invitation. That way, there's no confusion! This can also be helpful if your wedding and reception don't have the same dress code. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

  • Wedding invitation and enclosure card are parts
    of the most important elements in your day
    because they convey special information about
    your wedding to your guests. Mentioning dress
    code on your wedding invitations if you want
    guests to know. Why? Including the dress code on
    wedding invitations is easy way to ensures your
    event stays as formal or as casual as you want,
    and its helpful for guests to know exactly what
    is expected of them and helps ensure everyone is
    properly attired for you wedding. But make sure
    it sounds fun so theyll want to participate,
    instead of feeling obligated to.

  • Where does the dress code ("Black tie," "cocktail
    attire" or "casual attire" are all acceptable) go
    on the wedding invitation? Thats the easy part!
  • If your ceremony and reception are at the same
    location, the wedding dress code should be
    printed at the bottom right or bottom center of
    your invitation. This is known as corner copy,
    and is available on most wedding invitations.
  • If the ceremony and reception are in separate
    locations, your dress code should be printed on
    both reception card and invitation. That way,
    there's no confusion! This can also be helpful if
    your wedding and reception don't have the same
    dress code.

  • Use straightforward wording to get your point
    across. Include brief, straightforward phrasing
    like black tie event or semi-formal for your
    guests. Your guests can then research those terms
    for specifications if theyre not familiar with
    different dress codes, or you can include brief
    details next to the dress code. Wording for dress
    codes might be Black Tie (tuxedos and formal
    gowns)

  • Now that you know how wedding invitation dress
    code works, its time to decide what your dress
    code will be, Casual? Cocktail? Semi-formal?
    Black tie?

  • Your invitation design will also clue guests in.
    An ultra-formal, traditional invite with
    letterpress and calligraphy will give guests a
    hint to the formal nature of the event, whereas a
    square invite with a playful font and bright
    colors would fit a much more casual style. Design
    your invitations to reflect a themed wedding.
    Themed weddings are becoming more and more
    popular. Choose elements of your theme to include
    on your invitation to make the dress code more
    clear to guests.

  • Write your dress code on an enclosure card,
    alternatively. Including a simple enclosure card
    that accompanies your wedding invitation is a
    great way to let guests know about important
    guidelines, especially if your wedding invitation
    design doesn't easily accommodate extra
    information about the dress code, like remind
    guests to bring warm layers and appropriate
    footwear for an winter outdoor wedding. Also, it
    can be a big help if you attach inspiration
    photos, especially for a theme party, so they'll
    know what you have in mind.

  • Another way is to direct guests to your wedding
    website about dress code.
