Wedding Announcements, Invitations, Stationery, and more ... The wedding invitation is often the first contact you have with friends and family regarding your intentions to marry. Your choices in paper, print-type and style set the tone for the type of wedding you plan to have: modest, casual, traditional, elegant, etc. Ask your Charleston stationer or printing professional for advice on your best selection for the perfect invitation for you. This important step in your planning will not only make known your intentions but will give instructions as to where your vows will be taken and where you plan to celebrate your nuptials afterward. The invitation encompasses driving instructions and provides the mechanism by which your guests will communicate with you if and how many will be in attendance at your event.
