How to create a wedding reception invitation card.

Create a romantic invitation with calligraphic fonts.

When you want a stylish and romantic reception invitation design, take your cue from traditional calligraphy. Before starting on your formal invitation, work out exactly what you want to say because it takes a little time to get it right – especially if you are inviting some guests to the wedding ceremony and reception, and others to the reception only. Start with a simple invitation template and add a text box so you can see the fonts that are suitable for an elegant wedding invite. Copy in your text and start tweaking – highlight the names of the bride and groom by choosing from your colour palette and play around with the text size to get the balance right. With Adobe Express, you'll soon find the perfect font to match your wedding reception party invites.

Take your guests on a wedding journey.

If you're inviting guests from overseas or out of town to your wedding reception, it's courteous to provide extra details with the invitation. Whether it's a lavish celebration at a city venue, or an intimate reception close to home, help your guests find their way by including travel details and hotel suggestions. To do this without detracting from the formal invitation, try including an additional page in your design. Invitation templates in Adobe Express are completely flexible, so start with one that matches your wedding style and use it to make as many custom wedding invitations as you need. With Adobe Express, it's easy to make invitations that accommodate traditional customs and modern practices.

Prepare for the wedding parties with your wedding reception invitation cards.

If you're hosting pre-wedding functions, it makes sense to include separate leaflets with the wedding and reception invitation cards. And while it's advisable to use a formal tone for the wedding reception invitation, a light-hearted approach is fine for other wedding events. But make sure you include all the important details such as the date, time, location and dress code. Pre-wedding functions are meant to be fun so mix it up a bit and let your personality shine through when you make these additional invitations in Adobe Express.

Frequently asked questions.

Can I send my wedding reception invitations via email?
Yes, it's easy to download your designs from Adobe Express and email invitations to your guests. If you have a couple of pages, download each page individually. Insert the images sequentially into your email message and you're good to go. Alternatively, download the design as a PDF file for easy distribution.
What paper should I use for my wedding reception invitations?
Go for something a little luxe and choose a card stock between 240gsm and 350gsm in ivory or cream. Make a distinction between the formal invitation and additional information by using a lighter weight vellum or glassine paper for additional inserts. Always ask for samples to be printed before making your final decision.
What details should I include on the wedding reception invitation?

As a minimum, your invitation should include

  • the names of the wedding hosts
  • a request for attendance
  • the names of the bride and groom
  • the date, time and location
  • RSVP instructions
Can I use my Save the Date theme for wedding reception invitations?
Yes, it's a good idea to have the same theme for all your wedding invitations and stationery. Make the first invitation in Adobe Express and save it as a template, ready to use again. By doing this, it's easy to resize or add additional pages to create a new layout while retaining the colour scheme and design elements from the original invitation.
Can I get Adobe Express for free? If so, what’s included?
Yes, Adobe Express offers a free plan that gives you access to basic photo editing tools, thousands of templates, dozens of quick action tools, and much more.
