Process Overview

 

 

We will first meet with you for a free consultation to discuss your wedding/invitation theme, and to obtain your individual invitation specifications. Should you decide that a video invitation is right for you, we will proceed with choosing your package preference, and work with you to meet your specific invitation requirements. You will select your invitation wording, font style, color theme, music, menu options (Gold or Platinum packages), DVD label image, and package mailing materials. We have an array of cardstock and ribbon samples to preview so that we can coordinate your envelope colors with your wedding colors. We will then set a schedule of video element and completion due dates based on your target mailing date. We will discuss pricing based on the video package and elements you choose and guest number. At the time of contract completion, you should also be prepared to provide the event times, venue addresses, target invitation mailing date and parents and bridal party names, as applicable.

 

*Please Note: It is recommended that you contact us no later than 16 weeks prior to the event date to ensure adequate time for project completion to meet target mailing date. Service requests for video invitations made with less than 12 weeks before event date may not be accepted.

Custom DVD Invitation

 

Customization...

 

The great thing about choosing to send your guests a DVD invitation is that there is really no limitation as to how your video invitation can be customized! There are various video backgrounds, which also come in side and lower third overlays to compliment your invitation wording. See our video backgrounds page.

 

You may also choose to use a classic black background with white invitation wording, or you can use custom created graphics or invitation design sets that can serve as a video background for your invitation, or as a custom design that can be used for a custom printed paper invitation set.

 

Your DVD invitation will be further enhanced by your music selection, creating a dramatic, cinematic effect for your invitation. Preview our music selections.

 

The possibilities are endlness... We will work with you to create the visual background and effects you desire to make your DVD/video invitation a truly unique invitation.

 

Additionally, you can use any image of your choice for your print to DVD label for your invitation. Whether it be your engagement photo, or a favorite flower or wedding theme photo...the choice is yours. Imagine the delight of your guests when they open your invitation and see a beautifully printed DVD label, or see your engagement photo used as a personal touch!

 

 

Why you should include venue pictures in your video invitation...

 

Including pictures of your selected ceremony and reception sites will give your guests a preview of the charm and sophistication of your event. The photos of your ceremony site and reception hall, interlaced with your invitation and venue wording, and set to elegant music, will enable your guests to visualize your special day, see themselves there, and entice them into returning a positive RSVP response!

 

Upon receiving your venue information, EVI will contact the wedding coordinators at both your ceremony and reception venues to arrange a time to meet and take photo stills when decorations are set up for an evnet prior to yours. Once we have the photos of your venues, we will use photo editing software to adjust the color themes to match your colors, should you desire that additional customization.

Why you should incorporate a "How We Met," or "Our Engagement Story," interview in your DVD invitation...

 

Adding a personalized message for your guests and sharing your love story or engagement story will give your guests an opportunity hear about all the charming details of how you came together, and enables guests to get to know you more and share in your excitement! Taking the time to add a message and personally invite your guests through video media will be a compelling element that will make your guests call you up and RSVP saying they wouldn't miss it!
