How to Incorporate a Different Language in a Wedding Invite

Learn how to incorporate different languages into your wedding invitations with this Howcast video featuring expert Nicole Block.

My name is Nicole Block of the Nic Studio. I do stationary and illustrations, and I specialize in custom wedding invitations and special event invitations. My website is thenicstudio.com and I’ll be talking to you today about wedding invitations. So many couples these days are from different backgrounds or even different countries. May be you guys speak a different language or may be your families do. Often times, you’ll need to incorporate both languages into your invitations. Make sure that the designer that you are working with, has that language available to them on your computer as well as the font required. Sometimes, two languages require a larger format invite. So try and keep it short and concise, but also expect that there will be differences in the type of invitations you need. I have here an example, the husband was from Kentucky, the wife was Chinese, her whole family was from Hong Kong. And then, they were having a both New York city wedding and a Hong Kong wedding. Everything here was in English, everything say the same, until you got to the invitation. There was only one area that they felt needed to be in Chinese, and that was the information for what day, date and the location was for the wedding. All the other text is in orange, until you get to the Chinese, and that’s all in red. That’s another way to go about it in your invitation. Do it in two different colors and keep them totally different all the way through. So, that’s just one example, don’t be afraid of it. May just take a little extra finesse, but I’m sure you and your designer can work it out.
