5 Simple Ways to Make Your Wedding Invitations Amazing
Be unique with a custom design
Anyone can google wedding invitations and order a few hundred of a premade design. Who can blame them? Some of the designs out there are amazing.
But, if you want your wedding to really stand out, wouldn’t you want a one of a kind wedding invitation? Imagine sending your invites out only to hear that so and so used the exact same template last year…
Custom designed invitations are more affordable than ever and a lot of the time won’t add up to much more than ordering a pre-designed invitation.
Here are some ideas for your custom wedding invitations:
A photo of you and your significant other

When you choose your invitations, consider:
The ink you intend to use
The feel of the material
If you plan on embossing the writing on the invitations
Add some humour!
Your wedding is going to be a fun and amazing experience for everyone. Why not set the mood now?
Think of the last wedding invitation you received, was it a bit formal? Did it seem like something the person sending it would actually say to you?
The people invited to your wedding are your family and your best friends in the world so why not be yourself.
The medium is the message (don’t forget your envelope!)
Imagine you’re opening your letterbox and there’s a blank envelope with your name printed onto it. It could be anything right, even a bill!
When you send out your invitations and save-the-dates, you should consider what you’re sending them in. Add another level of personalisation and customise your envelope!
When you purchase your envelope, think of the following:
Want to stand out from the crowd? Why not add a customised sticker to seal the envelope. You could print a custom sticker with your and your significant other’s names or initials or even a photo of the two of you.

Don’t forget your save-the-dates
Wedding budgets can be pretty hard to meet once you start adding up all the costs. A lot of wedding planners wonder if save-the-dates are worth the money or if it’s worth sending them at all.
