Wedding Planning

Proofreading Your Wedding Invitations

You must proofread your invitations twice - before ordering and before picking up from your wedding stationer. Be sure to proofread very carefully. Have you and your fiance both meticulously read the wedding invitation prior to placing the order; and then consider bringing a friend or your fiance when picking up from your stationer so they can double-check for any errors.

Below are a few things you should be sure to proofread:
