If someone heard the invitation, they could attend the wedding, unless of course there was enmity between the families. These invitations were typically announced by a town crier, a man who would walk through the streets announcing in a loud voice the news of the day. Only Royal families were inviting other kings through the proper written invitation. The monks and Sages were well known for their beautiful hand writing called as calligraphy. Many of these families also had the family crest added to the invitation. This was also used as a means for identifying the family to those who were virtually illiterate. Metal like Gold or silver plates were used for Royal invitation along with fruits, precious gems and gifts for the guests to reflect their grandeur.
