Wedding Invitations Ideas – Great Ideas For Creating Unique Wedding Invitations

Do you like this story?

Wedding Invitations should be personalized, special, and unique to you.

So here are a bunch of great ideas that you can apply to your own personalized wedding invitations….

Decide whether you want your invitations to be traditional or modern.

Incorporate the theme or location of your wedding into the invitation.

Coordinate the colour, the season and the look of the wedding and invitation. You can use colour for the tissue insert, lettering, paper and ribbon. Leaves, flowers and the type of invitation paper can also allude to the look of the wedding.

  • Add something like an engagement picture on the invitation, or as a fun insert such as a magnet that your guests can keep. This allows both sides of the bride and groom’s family the opportunity to feel included and acquainted with you as a couple.
  • Include a link to your own personal website where guests can find engagement photos and wedding information.
  • Use calligraphy to create a beautifully unique look. Handwritten, designer invitations are one of a kind. Letterpress printing, raised type stamped onto the paper, can add an antique feel to your invitations, while calligraphy can create a softer, more romantic look.
  • Take the time to find the perfect wording for your invitation. If you’re writing your own vows, consider including them in your wedding invites.
  • Your wedding is a great place to make a positive statement. Go green with recycled paper to show your views and give your invitations a distinct look and feel.
    Give your invites a unique sense of style and personality. When you make your own invitations you can make them exactly as you want them to look. The exact colours, papers, and words. There is no searching and searching for the perfect dream invite, or settling for the closest to what you had in mind.
  • Give your guests an invitation worthy of scrapbooks and photo albums. They can keep them as a memento. Do it yourself invitations are keepsakes marking major milestones in a person’s life.
  • You can still look classy by using desktop publishing and typesetting. Avoid huge costs and print them yourself. Add personality and flair by choosing unique fonts.
  • By creating your own designs you will save money.
  • One of the easiest ways to create a unique wedding invitation is to find shaped invites. For example, if you had a beach themed wedding you could use sandal shaped invites. Letters of the alphabet would work for those looking to do a monogram theme, but want to keep their wedding traditional and formal. Motorcycles, cars, trucks, airplanes, and other vehicle shapes are perfect for the couple who is always ‘on the go’. Butterflies, horses, dogs, and other cuddly friends are great shapes for animal lovers. Flowers, leaves, or blooming plants for the gardeners/nature lovers. Lips, X’s and O’s, and hearts for the romantic couple.
  • Use special materials to create unique wedding invitations is by using special materials. Vellum, tissue, and other papers are standard for most invites. But you do not have to stop with just the traditional materials.
  • Consider enhancing your invitations with leather ties instead of ribbon, or switch the ribbon for shoelace ties.
  • Photo invitations are becoming more and more popular. But instead of simply using your engagement picture, use photos of the two of you growing up in a montage. Use black and white images, or pull a single colour out that ties in with your wedding colours.
  • Charms or other accessories can personalize a wedding invitation. Cheap bracelet charms can be added to all ready made invitations for a unique touch. Use palm trees, hearts, lips, or other items related to your relationship.
  • Make certain that your invitations reflect your personality. If you don’t really like something formal, then don’t make a formal invitation card. And it is highly probably that you will host a less formal wedding as well. Of course the card may also reflect your hobbies. For instance, if both of you and your spouse love pets very much, you may take a photo with your dog and home and put it on the wedding invitation. Your guests will definitely know it is you when they receive the card.
  • The wording that you use in the invitation is very essential. You can either use some traditional wordings or write your own. My suggestion is that you write your own, written from your heart and that way your wedding invitation will be both memorable and extremely special.

If all of the above is beyond you…hire a designer.

But if you are going to hire a designer to do the design, make sure you work closely with them. This way you will be able to give the designer some ideas on what you like and dislike. Of course you should also let the designer know your wedding theme otherwise they won’t know how to design the card. Remember not to overly instruct your designer. Design is a process of inspiration and exploration. The interaction between you and the designer will certainly lead to a magically unique and perfect design.
