Wedding invitations in the typical Chinese style are normally folded red cards, on which some golden particles are sprayed. There are so many designs for these invitation cards, but each includes the male and female powers. Often added are other designs that depict Xi, the Chinese character of love, or the character of double happiness. Designs such as the dragon or the phoenix are also printed to display the balance of male and female power. Sacred verses or poems are printed in calligraphy style to enhance the festive mood of the invitations.
Chinese wedding invitations play an integral part in creating special mood for the day. There are so many wedding invitations available on the market, such as formally engraved styles, handcrafted specialty invitations, and invitations with raised lettering. Wedding invitations, whether traditional or contemporary, can be designed to complement any desired theme. If you would prefer something extraordinary, a customized invitation will incorporate whatever you dream up. Conversely, if you prefer a simple invitation style, you can choose from a variety of ready-made invitations available in many bridal supply outlets and card shops.
There is a wide range of designs to choose from. Some styles offer a vintage feel or a layered design, which is pasted with wax seal. Others may prefer invitations of hand-made paper with some embedded flower petals added, which are then drawn on using calligraphy. Nowadays, some people opt for some funky styles, e.g. and art motif with some photos of the couples. Whether you are planning for a fairly tale wedding or specialty vintage affair, you can get suitable wedding invitations, specially designed to highlight your theme.
When you order your printed wedding invitations, be sure to remember the four fields of information: the Chinese or English verse for the invitation, the address for envelope flap, the Chinese or English verse for reply card, and the reply card return address. Also, in the reply card, be sure to mention the name and address of the person to whom the reply card should be mailed.
