Keeping It Casual Weddings - Wedding Invitation Postcards

Wedding Invitation Postcards can be both an environmental and economical choice. You can choose from fun designs to ones that are more elegant.

This first design features a border of purple and yellow diamond shapes, accented with two sets of matching butterflies using the same blends. It's a perfect choice for a spring wedding.

The purple and white stars on lavender blends are great for purple themed weddings, and for any time of the year.

The wave of red hearts design is perfect for Valentine weddings, and heart themed weddings any time of the year.

The silver star flowers on an orange background is great for both star themed and orange themed weddings. I think it looks perfect for fall.

The green ferns design can compliment any color or flower theme.

All of the above designs have template forms for you to easily personalize the text.

Keeping it Casual Weddings - Being legally ready in the U.S.

In addition to states having a minimum age requirement for two people to marry, or parental consent, some states also require either a blood test, a physical, or both.

Also a marriage license is required in most places. In some states there is a waiting period, and others not. Some marriage licenses also have an expiration date, so they can't be gotten too far in advance. To get a marriage license, official documents, such as birth certificates, are required. There is also usually a license fee.

You can check here for marriage license requirements by state. This is a general list and may not be current, it is only for guidance. Do check with the state in which you plan to marry. Also marriage laws can vary between in state marriages and out of state marriages.

If required, the minister, priest, justice of the peace, etc. will need to see the marriage license before they perform the wedding ceremony.
