It’s OK to say goodbye to simple typefaces and heavy card stock! Invitations set the tone for a wedding, and you don’t want to call on your guests with something that’s not your style. So if you’re open to surprising your guests with an invitation suite that feels more personal than traditional, consider using fun shapes, mixed materials, and hand-painted artwork to create the vibe you want.
There are endless ways to amp up the creativity level in your wedding invitations! In fact, you can customize every detail of your invitation suite, selecting everything from the paper it’s printed on to the stamp that seals the envelope. But remember: There’s a lot more to your invitations than what they’re printed on! So, don’t be afraid to get creative with the shape and presentation, color palette, and illustrations, and even extra embellishments like tasseled envelopes, raised type, and engraved designs. Even classic brides can get creative without throwing tradition out the window. It’s possible to keep the mainstays of a timeless invitation suite while elevating it with simple effects, like metallic foil lettering or gilded beveled edges.
After all, designing your invitations is all about crafting your personal style. What kind of statement do you want to make when they land in your guests’ mailbox? If you don’t know the answer to that quite yet, these unique wedding invitation ideas are sure to inspire you. Here’s 10 more unique wedding invitations.
