Wedding invitations - the meat and bread of Songbird Paperie! Wedding stationery is the first glimpse of your special day, so make it count! Here are 10 fun ideas to make your invites unique and get guests pumped for the best day ever!
Airplane Boarding Pass
Having a destination wedding? Play off of the travel theme and get your guests excited for the trip! Go retro and include your "boarding pass" invitation, info card-turned-travel-itinerary and RSVP "receipt" in a sleeve that has your wedding logo as the "airline" logo! Fun, right?
This one is near and dear to my heart - a couple of years ago, I was introduced to a lovely gal named Beth who wanted a creative custom-designed wedding invitation that would reflect her and her fiance's passion for concerts. I created this concert-ticket-inspired wedding invitation for them. Beth and her now-husband Isaac became good friends, and this fall they're celebrating their second wedding anniversary!
Camp Bride & Groom
The camp theme is not new, but I like to get inspiration from in-style ideas like these and take it the extra mile. Everyone loves a tree or a snowy mountain, but how about inviting your guests to an actual summer camp? Check out these invitations and matching welcome guides for your campers -- it's like they're going to a real summer camp!
Maximize the white space and take a modern approach to your invites. This clean, minimal layout will bring a refined look to your wedding stationery and leave your guests looking forward to a very classy affair.
Online RSVP? Tuck in a Business Card!
This one might be my favorite! What do you do when you have an online RSVP and don't necessarily need the card-and-envelope combo, but still want to highlight how guests should reply without cluttering your invitation much like this sentence is cluttered? (Haha!) Stick in a little business card-sized RSVP card with your wedding website.
Vintage Map Liners – Without Ruining Your Map!
Who doesn't love a good envelope liner? This can work for a destination wedding, wedding in your hometown or highlight where you're honeymooning. Find a vintage black and white map, scan it and print it on a creamy paper -- map stays intact and you've created a very unique envelope liner!
Separate Yes/No RSVP Cards
It's like choose your own adventure, RSVP-style! Instead of checking a box, guests choose which card to send in.
Big Art, Teeny Text
Another take on the modern and minimal invitation design -- let the art speak loudly and keep the text simple. Big, bold, and punchy!
Break free from traditional paper and use printable vellum for a strong, yet delicate touch. A monochromatic color scheme with darker colors look best on this semi-translucent paper.
Another creative medium for your invites! Printable LINEN! You could take this a super elegant direction, with swoopy-swirly calligraphy, or a more relaxed vibe with handwritten-style font!
