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 and I'll be talking to you today about wedding invitations.
Maybe custom wedding invitations are out of your budget, or maybe the process is going to take too long and your wedding is coming up fast. Going with ready-to-order invitations is a great solution for this problem, and it could be a lot of fun. The first bit of advice is don't pick something that doesn't go with your event. Now this seems a little bit obvious. OK, don't pick a winter themed invitation if you are getting married on the beach in July. Okay, maybe that's a little bit silly, but honestly, don't pick, you know, the cool city-themed invitation if you're getting married in the woods at your home in the country. You want to make sure that whatever you pick suits your location, suits your personality, and suits the whole theme of the wedding.

Often times, ready-to-order invitations are made to suit certain themes. You know, this one is made to suit maybe Seattle, or London, or maybe you're getting married in April and you like the rain. If you are in a city and you love your city atmosphere, go for the graffiti invitation because that will work for you. So just make sure you choose wisely.

Next, make sure that the price, the turn around time, and the printing style are what you want. If you are ordering from a book in a store, make sure you can touch the invitation in the book. And if you are ordering from online, ask for samples because once you've got it, you can't change it. You don't want to have buyer's remorse when it comes to your wedding invitations.

Lastly, most places only let you customize a little bit. You better pick something that you love 100 percent and that you're more than willing to go with. Anything that you ask to change or add on will be an up-charge for you. So that's it. I hope that I helped you pick out the right ready-to-order invitation for you, and if you wanted to look at mine or any others, just go to my site.
