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.
Brown or kraft paper can be eco friendly and look super sweet.
Dreamy watercolour wash invitations can look oh so elegant.
Why not go all out and have a book invitation, it would be an amazing moment for your guests too.
Get a stamp made, you can use it on all of your wedding stationery for a branded look.
Pops of colour and stylish typography ensured this suite looked uber pretty.
Think about using alternative materials, such as this engraved wooden invite.

Adding details such as buttons can make wedding invitations feel more luxe.

Go down the DIY route like Jules and Gregg if you want a home-made feel.
I love the idea of the tea towel invitation, it’s super quirky and you get to keep it forever.
Calligraphy style stationery has been huge of late, very stylish and sophisticated.
Theme Wizard of Oz
If you have a theme to your wedding, be sure to include the paper goods too.
Dots and vibrant colours are always a winning combination.
Direct your guests with a pretty illustrated map invitation.
Why not have a vibrant graphic style invitation to match a fun circus theme.
Or for a funfair theme.
Get all country with texture and muted colours.

You can mix and match your stationery, with one theme for the invitation and another on the day.
Look to vintage posters or invitations for inspiration.
