After choosing the size and shape of the invitation, it was time for the colors and text.

Background and text colors should be opposite to each other. For example, if the background is black or dark blue, the text colors can be white, yellow or gold.
In addition, some designers keep the font sizes small, even if small texts can be easily read on the screen, they can be difficult to read when printed on paper. Normal book texts are 10-12 points, and when smaller fonts are printed, it is very difficult to read. So the writings of your invitation should be legible.
