28 Wedding Invitation Ideas. From Quirky & Pretty to Rustic Unique Stationery

Wedding invitations and stationery can be soooo much fun. It’s a chance to share a teaser of your wedding plans and to show off your personality as a couple.

There are oodles of options out there for couples now and the choices are endless. Whether you are looking for something quirky, bespoke, elegant or fun there is something out there for everyone.

If you have no idea where to start then you are in the right place. I have trawled the WWW archives to find some of my favourite wedding invitations featured from real weddings on the blog. From DIY creations to fully illustrated suites and booklets.

Be sure to search for  awesome wedding stationery designers on pinterest, google, blogs, twitter, facebook and sites such as Etsy, Folksy and Not On The High Street too; they will have so many creative ranges to choose from. You can also check out the WWW wedding stationery page for some brilliant stationery designers.




Tell the story of you as a couple on your invite like Rory and Kim.

One thought on “28 Wedding Invitation Ideas. From Quirky & Pretty to Rustic Unique Stationery

All nice ideas! For our wedding we made a Video Wedding Invitation, all guests loved it! We used pictures and videos to show our love story, the final video had a professional look and was pretty easy to make, it was fun to do it, specially collecting the pictures through the years of our relationship!
We used an After Effects template purchased from this author here http://bit.ly/1Wpt2YZ Each template comes with in-depth video tutorials and is quite easy to edit.
Hope you will find this useful!
