How significant is your son's first communion to your family? Very significant is most probably the answer. The invitations for the event are what will make a great start to your communion preparations. There are the many usual niceties such as having sweet and inspiring phrases and of course photos that are used by many people in their boys first communion invitations so that they look great.
In order to differentiate your child's communion invitations from others', you should be taking care of the other little details that most people leave out. These details are mostly never directly noticed by people, but they do make a subconscious impact in the back of their minds. They make the invitations much more attractive and wellâ€¦ inviting. Let us see some such factors that come into play.
Firstly, let us concentrate on the color. Of course, we know that you are supposed to have a plain white color as the background with some lavender shades thrown in at the corners. Although this is the convention, you could go for a different color combination. Eliminate the white completely if you want. You shouldn't always rely on the printing services to choose the best color for you.
Also, most communion invitations come with sober colors. It is not that this is a bad thing because it gels in perfectly with the theme of the event. However, you can go for colors that are just that little bit different. You don't always need choose a particular color, but whatever you do; be a class apart. Even if some combinations seem odd, you should always try them before you discard them.
Another small thing that you should take care of when making boys first communion invitations is the theme of the invitation. This too pertains to the colors that you use. Since a communion is religious in nature most everyone goes for a dull theme. I don't say they are wrong, but for your child's first communion you could have something brighter and more colorful.
When it comes to invitations, you are no doubt considering embedding photos, a fairly popular practice. Even though this is a new trend most everyone will always print out the traditional photo on the invitation, which has a black tuxedo and the white shirt. You on the other hand, can try something away from the trend like a tuxedo which is navy blue in color, even if just for the sake of experiment.
By now you get the basic point I am trying to drive in here. That is, you should experiment a lot before zeroing in on a particular one. If you child looks better with a dark or light purple shirt, you can always go with it instead of using the white shirt as everyone else does. Of course, your tie should also be matching.
I again stress that it is the details in your boys first communion invitations that make an unmistakable difference. The beauty of the invitation and also your choices show in how much you try to perfect the small things and it is also what compels people to come to your child's invitations.
