Become a Top Wedding Planner – Help Brides Select Their Wedding Invitations


When you help a bride plan her wedding, she may also need you to help her select her wedding invitation. Most brides have never had much experience with ordering custom printed invitations or personalized stationery so they aren’t prepared to make decisions concerning lettering styles, printing, colors, shapes and sizes.  It can be overwhelming. They will need your help to choose an  invitation that coordinates with their wedding and gives guests an idea of their wedding style. They also may need your help wording the invitations correctly.

If you don’t have a lot of experience you can direct brides to stationery stores and bridal shops that have people trained in helping brides but you should also take the time to learn about invitations. You can start by going to websites such as and learning the correct etiquette for wedding invitations and announcements. You can also visit stationery stores and bridal shops yourself and do some research. You might want to speak to a wedding invitation consultant and see if you can add her or him to your vendor network to exchange some referrals.

The August 2010 issue of  Brides magazine features a guide to invitations which will give you some basics such as a timeline, a glossary of terms and it has photos of some great invitation designs.

If you love the idea of helping brides select their invitations, consider becoming a dealer. Stationery companies, such as Carlson Craft, welcome wedding and event planners as dealers for their products.
