Mississauga, Canada (PressExposure) October 21, 2009 -- The simple word "invitation" is somewhat misleading for a wedding invitation is often more than just a single card or piece of paper. An invitation set or ensemble, as they are called, might include the main invitation, a separate card with reception or ceremony specifics, some form of reply card for guests to post back, and an envelope or two, not to mention assorted enclosures bearing various bits of information regarding anything from special seating to travel arrangements.
For presentation's sake, all of these elements are generally printed in a coordinating style using the same method, paper, type, and ink color. Each item is not always essential for every wedding, and your individual needs will be the driving force behind determining exactly which of these pieces are required.
To help you decide, keep in mind whether you plan on inviting your entire guest list to both the ceremony and the reception, and whether you will need to provide anything beyond the invitation basics such as maps or accommodation cards. At Precious Invitation, we hope to provide for all of your wedding stationery needs.
