Customarily, the bride's last name should be excluded if her parents are hosting the wedding. If the groom's parents are involved in the planning, include the bride's last name. Always double check that you are using correct names for your guests, even the third cousin's girlfriend of 3_months who you have never met. If you have to pick up the phone to call and confirm a spelling, do so to make your guests feel absolutely comfortable and welcomed. Registry information should be displayed on your wedding website (if applicable) or communicated through word of mouth. You should not print such information on your wedding invitations__as it would be in poor taste.
If you would like custom or metallic ink colors, expect an additional 10% to the total order cost. Some companies may charge a flat rate of 50 cents per invitation when using any other color besides black ink. In the case that the envelope must be treated before the calligraphy is applied, expect a minimum of an additional 50 cents per envelope. This is often the case when the calligrapher works with paper that is shiny or difficult to write on.
