More Creative Wedding Invitations

One of my favorite parts of my job is surfing the web + checking out what other talented designers are creating and currently inspired by. This past week I stumbled across some really unique + fun invites – my favorite! First up is Mike + Rachael’s invite. Mike is an art director so of couse he wanted to have some fun with his invites :) They got married in the Pacific Northwest + their invitation system complimented the couple’s offbeat style with a full wedding-day guidebook, map and scout badges.

Next up is from the creative team at Ptarmak. Such a fun invitation suite for an “Old Fashioned Southern-Style Hitchin’ in Texas.” The design is AMAZING and just has such a rad overall feel.

And for a new spin on one of my past favorite ideas – the handkerchief invite! I love the cardboard sleeve and all the details that went into the design of the handkerchief. You can read all about the creative process behing this invite on Kelli Anderson’s blog.

If you are in the process of thinking about invitations hopefully those inspired you a bit – remember the invite is generally the first thing your guest will see about your wedding and really helps establish the overall vibe for your day.
