Wedding invitations don’t have to be boring! Here are some off-the-beaten-path ideas that would work well as wedding invitations or just as a way to invite your loved ones to celebrate with you:
Wedding invitations don’t have to be all matchy-matchy!
Wedding invitations don’t have to match the wedding theme!
Sure, you can go with a classic invitation suite with a floral design and lots of script fonts. But there’s no rule that says your invitations have to match each other or even be in the same style as your wedding day decor. Sometimes it’s fun to mix things up and offer guests something different, like an invite that looks like it came straight out of Mad Men or one that uses bright colors and geometric shapes instead of flowers and lace. There are plenty of options out there if you’re looking for something fun, creative, or elegant—and they don’t have to cost a fortune either!
Personalized calendar invitation
Our next idea is to create a custom calendar invitation.
While it may seem like an odd choice, there are many ways to use this theme that can make it unique and personal for your wedding. For example, if you’re having a winter wedding, choose a December-themed calendar that has snowflakes on it or something else relevant to cold weather. If you think this will be time-consuming, you can use an invitation maker to get the job done to perfection. That way, as Adobe Express puts it, you can “express the spirit of your event truly.”
Coasters are invitations!
Wedding coasters are a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding invitations. Coasters can be made from wood, cork and recycled materials, so you can choose the ones that best match your wedding theme. They can be used as place cards or drink markers at the reception or even as favors for guests. The idea is perfect for couples who don’t want anything too formal or heavy and want to keep things lighthearted and fun!
A plant for a guest to keep
A plant is a good gift for a guest to take home. It can serve as both a keepsake and a reminder of the wedding. Perhaps it’s your favorite flower, or maybe it’s something that grows well in your region—it could be whatever you want! The plant will also help your guests feel connected to the location when they visit their new home together.
DIY balloon pop-up invitations
Consider a balloon pop-up invitation. This invitation is simple, but it’s also very impressive and fun! You can make your own by following these steps:
- Gather your supplies—and yes, they can be bought online or at any craft store. You will need:
- a cardboard box (the size you want the finished product to be)
- Two styrofoam balls sized for the middle and bottom of your box (you could also use balloons instead)
- tissue paper in colors that match your theme (or whatever color you choose)
There are so many ways to get creative with wedding invitations, and it’s a great way to show off your personality. If you want something fun and different for your invite, try one of these four out-of-the-box ideas!
