The Invitation for most is the first impression people will have of your wedding. It gives the all important details such as when and where, but it also gives a sense of your style as a couple. If it's handmade and kitschie or if it's designed and elegant, it's a presentation of what is to follow on the day. Below are a couple of different examples on some really cool invites.
Hand made from cut up maps, this invite declairs a vintage style from the envelope and beyond. The font is also importand as it gives a sense of playfulness from the outset. I think it says "Hey we're Tom and Maggie and we don't take life seriously".
This retro stunner has a designed elegance. The bold colours reminiscent of 70's curtins (in a good way, as if there's a bad way) make you think "Natalie and Jeff know they're groovey, so we think they are too".
This invite is totally david met nicole and would be a great invite for that totally old school couple. This invite can be ordered online from Pretty Rustic 's etsy store for $4 a pop. With heaps of other designs and sellers on etsy, it might be worth getting lost in there to find something totally you.
And for something completely different, that I love with all my heart, for the funny people, why not have a couple with lampshades on their heads. From Invitation Consultants for $1.55 each when buying 100, I think it's a bargan for sending out a big chuckle.
