Unique Wedding Invitations

I love wedding invitations that go beyond the normal. Thought I’d share a few of my recent loves…

Invitations on hankerchiefs by Lucky Luxe Couture.

And this lovely invite by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper.  From Anna, For their invitation we decided to play up their love for handmade with a hand sewn invitation design. I used embroidery thread and sewed it directly into paper to create the design and then added hand painted lettering before scanning the art for printing. She then scanned the design for the actual invites – simply stunning!
