Wedding Invitations Guide

Saying yes was the easy part, right? Planning a wedding isn't always an easy task, but your wedding doesn't have to be that way! Shopping online for wedding supplies is a great, stress-free way to find items that reflect your unique style. Remember to include wedding invitations and stationery when shopping. Here's a check list of must needed stationery items for your wedding.

  • Save The Date cards are typically sent out about six months before the wedding to remind guests of your special day.
  • EngagementParty Invitations to celebrate your engagement with all your friends and family. Share your excitement with all your loved ones!
  • Bridal Shower Invitations for your wedding shower.
  • Bachelorette
    Party Invitations
    with fun, girly designs like lingerie, high heels, cocktails and dancing.
  • Wedding Invitations Choose wedding invitations that reflect your style and love. Trendy designs are popular choices, but remember that this is your one and only wedding invitation.  Since your love is timeless, it's best to choose an invitation design that will stand the test of time as well.
  • Wedding Stationery including thank you notes and envelopes so you can let each guest know how much you appreciate them!


Throwing the soon-to-be bride a bridal shower and a bachelorette party is a great way to help her relax from the stress of planning a wedding. A theme party is a fun, unique way to celebrate her upcoming nuptials and prepare for married life. Ideas for bridal shower themes and bachelorette parties include:


  • Around The Clock - Write a specific time, like "seven o' clock" on each invitation. The guests with that invitation will bring a gift
    appropriate for that time. For instance, the guest with "seven o' clock" may bring flatware or china.
  • Tea Party - Hosting a tea party is perfect for any bride. Be sure to have small sandwiches, scones, cookies, and an assortment of teas.
  • Winter Bridal Showers - Having a winter wedding? Supply plain Christmas ornaments, sequins, beads, and paints, and have each guest design an ornament for the couple's first Christmas tree.
  • Linen & Lingerie Shower - This is a party where each guest is asked to buy the bride a piece of linen or lingerie to be used in the bedroom, or wherever else she and the groom fancy. At InvitationBox.com, we offer a very wide selection of linen and lingerie bridal shower invitations for you to select from.
  • Girls' Night In - Wear comfy pajamas, rent chick flicks, buy chips and dip, and give each other manicures, pedicures, and facials! It's time for the bride to take a much needed break from all that wedding planning.
  • Room of the House - Like the Around The Clock theme, each invitation will have a certain room of the house on it. Guests may bring gifts appropriate for that room.


Be sure to send all of your invitations out on time, and with the proper postage. Also, be sure to include postage on reply cards to ensure a speedy response. Sending out invitations is the perfect way to let your guests know what the party's theme will be. Marriage happens only once in a lifetime, so choose the perfect wedding invitations to match your style!
