Wedding Invitations – Inspiration and Quirky Ideas

Wedding invitations are the first thing your guests will see to start off your wedding, so it is important to get them right. Wedding invitation makers do a fabulous job but to make super sure your invitations are perfect, we have rounded up a few ideas to get your thought process flowing.

Themed Weddings

If you are having a themed wedding it is a great idea to match your invitations to the theme. This is the first glimpse of your wedding your guests will see, so start as you mean to go on. Even if you are not having a full on theme and you are just sticking to a certain colour palette or style this same idea can apply. Have fun with them and get your guests excited for your special day.


One of the main things people aim for when they’re planning their wedding, is originality. The best way to do this is with personalisation. To personalise wedding invitations, you could add a personalised stamp – you can buy these online – envelope sticker, or wax seals. This is a nice touch and also adds a touch of sparkle to boring envelopes.


If you want to go the extra mile, hand written calligraphy is an elegant finish. If you are having a huge wedding this may not be feasible because of the time and cost it takes, but for small weddings or if you have a big budget this is something you may think about. If you have a small favourite poem or quote that represents you as a couple it may be a nice idea addition too.

DIY Invitations

A way to ensure you have personalised, original wedding invitations is to make them yourself. If you or your partner is the crafty type this will not only be a fun activity but it could make for really cool invitations.
