Wondering what kind of invitations to send out that will really dazzle your guests? Here are some fun ideas to get you on track to sending out your own really creative wedding invitations.
In case you are wondering what a printed flower is, it is essentially a flower (such as a rose) that has been tattooed with text on its petals. While you have likely seen these around in recent years, you may have yet to explore their possibilities as invitations to your wedding ceremony. This could get pricey if sent to a few hundred guests, but even just as an invitation to your bride’s maids it could be fun. Be sure your guests won’t be asked to present their invitation anywhere on the big day, as the flower may no longer display a readable message by that point.
Another option is a well made artificial flower. While sometimes less than elegant when presented as a full bouquet instead of the organic equivalent, as an invitation it could actually be really beautiful. It would also be sure to endure long enough to convey a properly legible invitation to your guests and better ensure they attend.
An important consideration here, whether natural or artificial, is the style of type chosen to be used in the text on the flower. A flower with beautiful calligraphic cursive is going to be a lot more appropriate and elegant than a flower printed with a blocky font like Arial. Lastly, you can always just wrap a paper invitation like a scroll around the stem of a flower with a ribbon to tie it for a really beautiful and classically elegant solution.
Another fun option is a photo of the two of you in a small sculpted frame. Small is an emphasis here as this is supposed to be an invitation and a reminder rather than a new addition to their home. By .sculpted. essentially what is intended is just a frame in the shape of a heart or a frame carved with a wedding motif or similar.
It has the advantage of being really cute and fun and serving as a romantic reminder of the big day. It also has the advantage of not easily being tucked away into a stack of papers which could lead to missing the date. It can be a very affordable way to make some really gorgeous and novel invitations that will last beyond the ceremony.
One more item that may be skillfully employed to liven up a wedding invitation is an elegant addition of an edible treat in a stylish and tiny box or even a beautiful wrapper. You may even want to make your shared last name into a custom brand name and logo to have printed on the box. Chocolates are a sure winner and your guests will likely love the concept and your delightfully tasty consideration.
Now that you have a few more ideas, hopefully you will easily design a wedding invitation that will satisfy your creative needs.
