When it comes to choosing the style of your wedding invitations, you’ll want to choose a style that fits the theme of your wedding. The invites will be the first impression that your guests will have of your impending nuptials and you want to create some excitement and intrigue surrounding your day.

The best wedding invites are those that stand out and often it’s the simple little elements that make the difference. The choice of designs available are endless, but if you plan to make your own, rather than have bespoke ones made for you, then here are a few ideas that you might want to go with.

Have a stamp made

Why not create some custom stamps in a font of your choice, to really personalise your invites. It can be used to print names, the venue address and rsvp address.

Go rustic

Whether or not you’re opting for a barn wedding, you might want to create some rustic looking invitations using brown cards, tags, twine and twigs for a truly rustic feel.

Emboss the envelopes

Using a monogram definitely creates the wow factor and will make your invitations look rather expensive and elegant too. You can go one step further by using your monogram to over wax to seal your envelopes or as a feature on the invitations.

Tie them with ribbons

Perhaps the simplest idea of all but still so effective. It’s also a useful way to keep all of the relevant information together, such as directions, hotel information and RSVP cards.
