A wedding invitation is a formal correspondence requesting the addressee to grace the occasion of wedding with his presence. Today, many wedding couples are searching ways to express their individual tastes through their invitation and desire that it should standout from the usual flat party invitation, but without spending much. The two major factors that determine the cost of wedding invitations are:
(1) The printing process used
(2) The quality of the papers
Wedding invitations print involves one of the following methods: engraving, lithography, thermography, letterpress printing, at times blind embossing, offset printing, and more advances, on laser and inkjet printers.
Many creative couples are printing invitations at home computers using variety of software’s. Invitations can be ordered from an artist, or vendor specializing in invitations. Formal-Invitations are luxurious, have unique printed return labels, decorative seals and beautiful liners, thus an attractive way to greatly enhance quality of invitation.
One of the ideal ways to let the guests know on the fact that the wedding is formal, are the invitations. Ultra-formal or traditional invitation -- on white, ivory, or ecru paper, with the wording written in black script, maybe even with a gold or silver border --could do the trick -- if the invitees receive a formal invitation of wedding where it is being held, can probably helpful in giving them understanding of appropriate dressing.
Modern invitation design is persistently changing and evolving to cope with current trends. Today's invitations generally match the style and taste of couple as well as the level of formality of the occasion. For instance, a casual beach wedding may have light, fresh colors and beach-related graphics. A formal church wedding may have more scripts and with lots of ornamentation that justifies the formal nature of the event. Therefore design of the invitation is becoming less traditional and more reflective of the couple's taste n character.

(2) Both Parents Invitation
(3) Bride/Groom & Parents Inviting (This wording suggests that couple is hosting in conjunction with your parents.)

Another imperative step is R.S.V.P. response card should be stamped before sending the invitation as a courtesy for the guest to send their response easily.

Map or direction cards give details about the location of the wedding and reception. The accommodation information provides helpful tips about airfare, transportation or hotel arrangements for out-of-town guests. City attractions can be featured as well.
Inviting Etiquette does encompass the fact that never prints addresses with a computer always hand-write them. Do Remember, a wedding is especially an intimate and personal occasion, and invitations must reflect that.
If it's a matter of time – and got many invitations to address – can call /seek the help of loved ones or anyone else who's has nice handwriting to plow through them. It's just one of those polite and considered gestures that “I’m-a-great-host”. In case if addresses are got printed, such thoughtful touches are absent ---which are glaringly obvious?
