5 Creative Wedding Invitation Ideas

Every couple wants their wedding day to be a special, magical and enjoyable occasion that guests remember fondly for many years to come. To set the tone for the event of the year, it’s important to choose a creative style for your luxury wedding invitations.

The perfect wedding invite is striking and stands out from the crowd, and gives your guests a hint of your personalities and the theme of the wedding.

  1. Classic & Traditional

Couples tying the knot in a formal fashion tend to typically choose a chic and timeless, classic or traditional wedding invite design. You can’t go wrong with invitations made of premier quality white, cream or ivory paper that feature beautiful calligraphy and exquisite gold foil details. Make the classic style your own by adding unique personalisation in the form of a gorgeous black and white photo, floral wreath framing, or ornate monograms.

If you dream of marrying your beloved at a fairytale wedding you may want to show off an elegant style that oozes romance. Many brides choose to take inspiration from their stunning wedding dress, and to embellish wedding invitations with decorative elements like foil stamping and metallic adornment, to complement the glamour.

A profusion of floral blooms in delicate watercolours is absolutely perfect for decorating invites, for a spring or summer wedding that is idyllically traditional in every sense.

  1. Modern & On Trend

Just because you’re getting hitched in a church, it doesn’t mean that you have to send out wedding invitations that are simple and traditional. There are unlimited modern and on trend styles that you can incorporate into a creative design for your ultimate personalised wedding invites.

Seasonal on trend colours provide a great starting point, if you’re stuck for creative ideas for your invites. Pick out a beautiful palette that includes your favourite primary colour and two complementing accent shades.

If you love to follow fashion, research the latest hot looks and the catwalk styles of your favourite celebrities. With a few minor artistic tweaks, you can create your very own designer style to flaunt on the invitations to your big day.

  1. Luxurious & Decadent

There’s no disputing that wedding invitations that are luxurious and decadent instantly grab attention. When your guests receive a bespoke personalised invite that is lavishly designed, and beautifully presented in an elegant wedding stationery suite, they are far more likely to want to attend your special day than if you sent them a standard shop bought invite. That’s because a luxury invite promises a wedding to remember.

A vintage style wedding is just one of the wedding styles that perfectly complements luxurious and decadent themes in wedding stationery design and venue décor. Formal weddings that feature a black tie dress code, and destination weddings that have an unlimited budget, are also ideal for this flamboyant creative invitation style.

  1. DIY & Shabby Chic

If you’re planning a wedding on a shoestring budget, there’s really no need to compromise your wedding invite style, if you opt for DIY or shabby chic glamour. Let your imagination run wild, and use your creative and artistic talents to design a unique wedding theme for your special day. Your rustic theme will undoubtedly include one or two elements that will inspire you to design an invite that effortlessly matches.

Floral motifs arranged in chic garlands, wreaths or borders are excellent for adding detail to wedding invite typography, and other pieces of your wedding stationery. Charming hand-drawn illustrations can easily upgrade the style of an invite for a cost-cutting, eco-friendly wedding.

Wedding invites that are shabby chic in style and design are also great for bohemian carnival and festival themed weddings. Mix up the traditional plain text elements of your invites with colourful illustrations, photos, metallic foils and decorative stamping, to set an ‘all the fun of the fair’ tone.

  1. Inspired & Original

Not every couple getting married in 2022 wants to do so in a traditional low-key manner. More and more couples are choosing to celebrate their nuptials in quirky and original ways. If you want to embrace your offbeat nature, individual personalities, or shared interests, make your wedding invitations creatively alternative.

If you and your partner have a favourite movie that is meaningful to you both, you can create an original wedding theme by using it as inspiration for the design of your wedding invites, wedding outfits, and venue décor. Create a striking invite in the graphic style of your favourite sci-fi blockbuster or romantic movie, and set a dress code to match.

Not sure what to write to make your wedding invite more personalised and unique? No problem. Consider adding your favourite famous inspiration quote, or a line or two of movie script to a stylish laser cut designed card or a pop-up card that is tucked into a foldout ‘envelope’.

Paper invites that are designed in a specific shape, like a ticket, bookmark, or strip of photo booth snaps are easy to format with your ‘how you met your beloved’ timeline text. Look for a unique way to send and present the invite to your wedding guests… A bookmark shaped invite belongs inside a copy of a favourite book.

Your inspired and original invites don’t however have to be limited to paper. To wow your friends and family, you can always print your invite text on a latex balloon or cotton tea towel. And of course, a cardboard jigsaw or a fridge magnet wedding invite doubles as a treasured keepsake.
