You’ve been sending out cards for occasions from thank yous to birthdays for your whole life, so why stop now? When it comes time to pick the shape of your wedding invitations, skip the basic single panel and go with what’s familiar to you. Guests won’t know what to expect, so it’ll be a grand surprise, like a thank you in advance! Consider your options for folded card wedding invitations.
In order to echo the simple shape of most special occasion cards, you’ll probably want to use the Landscape Folded Cards for your wedding invitations. The simplest method would be to have these printed vertically, offering you more space and the echo of the single panel look, but if you’re looking to step outside the pack, consider setting your wording horizontally. Since you won’t have as much space as you might want, consider using these cards as save the dates or rehearsal dinner invitations, or simply keep your wording as spare and brief as possible.
Another choice for folded wedding invitations is the Tent Fold shape, also known as Portrait. This shape is best if you still wish to echo the traditional layout of paneled wedding invitations. Like the name indicates, wedding invitations like these are also great for a less typical look featuring a photo of the two of you on the front. They stand up easily, too, making for great keepsakes.
If you love the folded look for wedding invitations but want something a bit different, try out the unique three-panel Z-Card Wedding Invitations, great if you’re including a picture or two in with your invites. The shape of these wedding invitations means that they can be opened to show the landscape view, so they make lovely coffee table decorations for proud parents or relatives who want to remember the occasion when it’s upcoming or even after it’s passed.
