When it comes to planning your wedding, one of the most exciting things will be sending out save the dates and invitations to your friends and family. As you start to invite people it will start to feel more real, so it needs to be done properly.
Gone are the days of sending a card in the post as people are really upping their game when it comes to sending invitations. There are so many different ideas out there that it can be hard to know where to start, luckily we’ve put a list of our 7 favourite unique ideas together here:
Send A Message In A Bottle
This is a great idea if you’re having a destination or beach wedding. Buy some wholesale bottles with cork lids, create some old scroll invitations and place them in the bottle with stand and stones. If you’re feeling super creative you can decorate the bottle with seashells and starfish, then they’re ready to send to your guests! They’ll love the creativity and it will get them excited for your big day.
Create A Photo Album
Creating a photo album filled with all your favourite photos, followed by a formal invitation to your big day is a great way to show people all the great memories you’ve had in the run up to this special moment. It’s super personal, and something your guests will really enjoy looking though.
Print Your Invitation On A Magnet
When people receive an invitation for a party, wedding or special event – it usually goes on the fridge, right? Cut out the middleman and create an invitation that can stuck straight to the fridge and every one will think you’re a genius!
Have Each One Individually Created By A Calligrapher
Having a Calligrapher create your luxury wedding invitations one by one is a great way to personalise them to each individual person. No two invitations will be the same and your guests will really appreciate the effort that has gone into creating each one. Not to mention, they’ll look absolutely GORGEOUS!
Have Guests Solve A Puzzle
If you want to have a little bit of fun with your guests then you could create an invitation that means they have to solve a puzzle. Whether it’s a riddle to solve the location or a code to get into a sealed box, you’ll definitely stand out from all their other invites. Of course if they don’t guess it in time you’ll have to reveal the answer, but if they know you well it enough it won’t come to that.
Print Your Invitation On A Tea Towel
Printing your wedding invitation on a tea towel and packaging it up in a stunning box is a great way to send your guests a gift before the wedding. Include a card invitation in the box in case it gets ruined.
Create A Video Invitation And Send On A USB
If you’re feeling super creative, create a fun video to send to all your potential guests. You can pick up USB sticks and flash drives pretty cheap and it’s an easy way to make sure everyone gets the video in time for your big day!
