Christmas wedding invitations should be exclusive and attractive, reflecting the overall theme of your wedding and tone of your December wedding.
A lot of careful planning has gone into your special day and you don’t want your wedding invites to resemble other holiday cards. Since your guests will be receiving numerous seasonal cards, you want to ensure your wedding invitations get opened. There are a few things you can do to set yourself apart.
One of the smartest things you can do is send save the date invitations well in advance of the Christmas season. This ensures your guests have reserved the date and they are expecting your wedding notice.
If you decide against save the date invitations, then be sure to send your invites up to 12 weeks early. Many holiday functions are planned months in advance so this still may not be sufficient time for everyone to make the necessary arrangements to attend.
Another cool idea to ensure your invitations get opened and not overlooked is using custom wedding stamps. This will set your envelope apart from all the other mail and your guests will immediately identify that something special is enclosed.
Choosing a traditional thick white flat card over a folded card will also set your invite apart from other holiday mail. There are numerous options for border designs including snowflakes, pine cones and Santa hats. For the creative couple, you can also make your own wedding invitations.

Remember that the size, weight and thickness of your wedding stationery will affect the required postage. Consider your overall stationery budget before making your final decision.
Create excitement for this wonderful occasion by choosing Christmas wedding invitations that reflect your personality as a couple. This is your opportunity to set the tone for your wedding and portray your special day as a celebration not to be missed! And remember, as in all the aspects of your wedding, keep it personal so that when friends and family open up their invitation they can hear 'you' speaking, and not some formal wedding company!
