you may also go further by including poems, photographs for example.
as an inducting executive for a photography agency that makes a speciality of marriages, I spend the majority of my day looking for great photographers. Do not be humiliated if you have already made one or all the mistakes I am going to debate. These are historically little cards engraved with guests name and each seating place. These are necessary to thank each guest for their attendants and gifts you received. Take a bit of time to write a handwritten note to each on the card to each guest as it is only courtesy and may be recalled. Another option can be the first watercolor of the church where the event is happening or the coat of arms of the bride and grooms family branded on the invite. A method to save cash and add that personalized effect to the still is to make your own.
