Traditional with a Twist

Hand Illustrated

Having trouble finding an invite design that matches your styles and personalities? Then customize your invites with hand illustrated designs. On sites such as Etsy you can contact designers with ideas for illustrations and the specifics of your date, and the designer will create an invite that is completely customized to your wedding theme. Many designers will even send you the PDF, so you can choose the best materials and method for printing.

Mixed Metals

Make your designs spring off the page with mixed metal invitations. The combination of metallic colors such as gold and copper give your invitations a sense of class and quality, while the feeling and weight of the card make them feel as much like decorations as invitations.   

Plexiglass or Clear Acrylic

Set the tone for your wedding with invitations that match the formality of your event. Clear acrylic or plexiglass invitations are unlike any other invitation your guests have ever received and will give the impression that your wedding is a unique event worth looking forward to. This formal invitation will have your guests searching for their very best attire in preparation of your wedding day.

Card Alternatives

View Master

Everyone enjoys a bit of nostalgia and inviting your guests with this throwback toy will bring a smile to your guests’ faces. It also creates a personal touch by giving you the opportunity to tell the story of your relationship and engagement through visual imagery. To see the next part of the story they’ll have to RSVP!

Rustic Magnets  

We all have calendars on our phones and automated notifications, but one of the best places for reminders is still the refrigerator! Make it easy for your guests to hang your wedding invitation by crafting your wedding details on a rustic magnet. Not only is this a constant reminder of your upcoming event, it’s a fun decoration that will likely remain on the fridge after your wedding is over!

Jigsaw Puzzle

Engage your guests in your event from the very beginning with an interactive activity that piques their curiosity! Creating a game gives the impression that your wedding is going to be a day full of fun and excitement, and will have your guests solving your puzzle and marking their calendars for the big day!  

Paperless Invitations

Looking for environmentally friendly options that fit in your budget? Consider going paperless and sending your invitations digitally! With more options than ever before and some of the best designers in the industry contributing to create incredible works of art, paperless invitations have become a viable competitor to traditional wedding invitations.

Paperless invites can even help you stay more organized with follow-up tools such as RSVP tracking, guest messaging, calendar links and more. Check out some designs or upload your own on sites such as Paperless Post, Pingg, and Greenvelope.
