29 Ideas for Unique Wedding Invitations
Getting mail that isn't an advertisement or a bill is usually seen as a pleasant surprise. But don't you want the members of your guest list to be downright excited when they open up your wedding invitation? Of course, the reason behind it should be exciting enough—you and your spouse are getting married! But the design can offer its own sort of thrill by being as one-of-a-kind as your relationship.
You'll likely spend a significant amount of time selecting, wording, and distributing the stationery for your big day, not to mention deciding on who to send it to. Make the process worth it by picking a style that you truly love, and that your nearest and dearest will want to put on display on their fridges, memo boards, or somewhere else in their homes. One of the best ways to guarantee both? Choosing paper goods that are truly unique.
Your wedding invitations are one of the first representations of your celebration's vibe, whether it centers around a color palette, destination, season, or some other theme. They're meant to inform your attendees of the event's details, but they're also a good way to get everyone excited about your big day. So, don't be afraid to turn to the rest of your wedding's elements for inspiration, even if that leaves you with a stationery suite that isn't quite "traditional." The more creative, the better!
For ideas, turn to real couples like you. The following invitations were more than just pieces of paper—they were works of art.
