Your wedding invitations are the first taste anyone will taste on your wedding day. They set the tone and let your guests understand their purpose.
Why not give them a glimpse and they’ll remember forever?
Any of these unique wedding invitation ideas is sure to wow your guests. It’s time to be the focus of everyone’s refrigerator!
1. Monogram Envelopes
Consider printing your initials (for the bride and groom) on the envelope. It gives your guests a sneak peek at your wedding theme before opening the invitation. The smallest things can have the biggest impact. Put the monogram where your return address would normally be different. Or put it on the front flap of the envelope like a modern version of the wax seal.
2. Envelope liner
A little visual interest will make the experience of diving into your invitation kit more interesting. There are many ways to make your envelope pop.
· Match your lining to the rest of your invitations so your guests can feel your wedding vibe right from the start.
· Pack powerful punch with bold graphics.
· Add sweet, meaningful phrases along the fold in letterpress.
· Even a simple solid-color lining can take an envelope from boring to memorable.
Calligraphy goes well with wedding invites like peanut butter goes with jelly. It just works. Add a touch of elegance to your wedding invitations by using calligraphy to make your name stand out from the rest of the text. It also looks great when used to handle envelopes.
4. Rough edges
Bring some interesting texture to your wedding invitations with slightly rough edges. The deckled edge is reminiscent of the pages of an old book. They are the perfect addition to any retro-inspired invitation kit. If that’s not your style, look for some uniquely shaped die-cut invitations. They get rid of the boring rectangular shape but still look clean and elegant.
Bold borders make your wedding invitations pop. Use patterns, colors, or pictures to form a border around the entire invitation. Mix and match colors around the same palette, so each plugin has its own unique look. Everything from floral designs to geometric shapes works here. Add borders anywhere: around the edges, around your name, or just the top and bottom.
6. Watercolor details
Color blocks can be eye-catching, but they can also be harsh. Watercolor is a great way to bring soft, flowing colors to your wedding invitations. You can use it on inserts, envelope liners, or on the envelopes themselves. To embellish a simple invitation, brush some watercolors on your wedding stationery. If you’re hosting a destination wedding, add details like flowers, seashells, or even a map at the top.
Custom illustrations bring a little whimsy to the table. Illustrations of you and your fiancé add a personal touch to make a one-of-a-kind invitation. You can even include a diagrammatic timeline of your relationship in your invitation kit. A cute pet painting is sure to make anyone tick “yes” on RSVP. Vignettes can add energy to your wedding itinerary. These little details will show your guests how much fun they will have.
8. Color samples
If you want your wedding to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, you may have some ideas about the colors you want your guests to wear. Including color swatches in your invitation kit will engage your guests in the color scheme of the wedding. Ideally, they would prevent anyone from mistakenly wearing the wrong color salmon for the ceremony. Make sure your wedding is Instagram-worthy by making sure your vision becomes reality. No one will stand out like a thumbs-up in your wedding photos. Put your palette on round, square or even heart shaped plugins!
9. Geometric Design
Stylish geometric shapes are all the rage. Triangles, trapezoids and hexagons add amazing color to any invitation kit. Place them on envelope liners, borders, or the backs of inserts. They can help your country wedding invitations stand out from those ordinary rectangles. Think outside the box and cut your inserts into different geometric shapes. Just make sure your invitation design fits a standard envelope or you’ll have to pay extra for postage!
Decorate your invitations with gold, silver or bronze. Use metallic colors on bold fonts to make your name stand out from other messages. Put some glitter on the border to help your invitation really shine. Treating a dark envelope with metallic ink makes a statement the moment a guest opens the mailbox. Or you can be very bold and put some gold foil on your stationery. No one ever forgets that level of glitter!
