One of the fastest growing trends in the wedding and bridal industry are unique wedding invitations. Custom made invitations are one of the best ways to dazzle your guests, set expectations for your ceremony and reception, and to get everybody excited about your big day. While many unique invitations cost close to what many more traditional invitations do, some brides and grooms ask whether the amount of time and effort in finding or creating unique wedding invitations is worthwhile. We have come up with four points that all soon-to-be brides and grooms should consider when debating whether or not to take the “unique” wedding invitation route, starting with:
1. Represents Your Partner And Yourself
What makes unique wedding invitations worthwhile is due to a couple’s ability to tailor them to represent the interests and tastes of your partner and yourself. Opening up an invitation and finding something different, surprising, but uniquely “you” will delight the guests who know yourself and your partner well, and it will give other guests who may not know you both so well (such as your 91 year old Great Uncle Lou) an idea of who you both are individually and as a couple.
2. Reveals The Wedding Theme
Having a customized wedding invitation to send out to guests gives you the chance to provide hints or outright reveal the theme of your wedding. The colours of your wedding can be incorporated into the invite itself as background colour, in the design accents, or as a font colour. The location can be made more memorable by being depicted on the invite itself, and you can find neat ways to introduce the theme of your wedding (i.e. choosing fallen leaf imprints to indicate a spring wedding).
3. Makes For A More Memorable Wedding
The invitation is likely the first taste of what guests can expect at your wedding, which helps prepare their mind for your big day. Creating unique wedding invitations that stand out from the standard white card stock invite with calligraphy-style print will keep their mind thinking about your wedding and encourage guests to be excited for the big day.
4. A Conversation Piece
There’s a good chance that not everyone who’s attending your wedding will know one another. Guests love to talk about the couple on their big day, and one way to get the chatter started is to give them something to talk about other than how they know the lucky bride and groom. One great conversation starter: your incredibly unique and chat-worthy wedding invitation!
