Whatever the type of people the bride and groom happen to be, there’s always one thing that bought the marrying couple together in the first place. As the very act of getting married is an opportunity to celebrate that, a popular choice in showing the significance of this common ground is through the medium by which all weddings really begin: the invitation. As you’re about to find out, that interest they have in common could be anything from a passion to frequent the seaside to a habit of getting out of bed and making the same beverage in the morning.
