Everyone knows that your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. One thing that makes it extra special is to personalise all aspects of the wedding planning so that it truly is a reflection of your life together as a couple. It’s your chance to shine and it’s your opportunity to have everything exactly as you want it for the day, so make the most of it. Some couples may choose to theme the reception to reflect their personality, while for others it’s the choice of music and venue. However, many couples decide that they can set the tone for the upcoming nuptials simply with their choice of wedding invitation design. So make your wedding as personal as can be by designing a unique wedding invitation. Read on to find out how.
Use a photo
You can’t get any more unique than by using a cherished photo of the two of you as the design for your wedding invitation. You could keep a spare invitation and have it framed as a lasting memento of all the hard work and preparation that was necessary before the big day. Choose a photo that you both agree on, perhaps one from a past holiday or from a previous formal occasion. It doesn’t really matter which photo you choose as long as you both have big, happy smiles.
Use a postcard
If you’re planning to get married abroad or on the beach, an interesting idea for your invitation would be to get your hands on a collection of postcards relevant to the area and hand write the invitation on the reverse side. It’s a memento that all of your friends and family can keep and will be enough to get all your guests super excited for the big day. After all, nothing makes people happier than when the sun is shining.
Make it by hand
If you’re a creative type, here is your chance to truly shine. By hand-making your wedding invitations, you will not only be able to show off your beautiful and impressive design skills, you’ll also show your guests just how much time and effort you’ve spent planning the wedding. By investing this amount of energy and care, you’ll prove just how dedicated you are to making your marriage long and prosperous. That’s not to say that if you’re not very creative that you don’t care; merely that this can be an added personal touch for the right person.
Order online but design yourself
Often a bride to be has plenty of wonderful ideas in her head but lacks the tools to make it come to fruition. This is nothing to be ashamed of – we can’t all be professional designers. It’s for this reason that design companies were created, so that you can tell the experts exactly how you want your invitation to look and they can make your vision a reality. If you’re planning to invite a large number of guests to your wedding, this option can be the most convenient, as taking the time to hand-make invitations for 500 plus guests is unlikely to be an option for you, what with so much to consider and organise for the day itself.
