5 Ideas for Standout Wedding Invitations

Want to make your wedding invitations stand out from the crowd? Of course you do! Your invitations are the first glimpse your guests get of your celebration, so finding a unique style that represents you as a couple will help set the tone for your wedding day. Here are some tips to add a little something special to your wedding invitations:

1. Get creative with your wording

If a sense of humor is important to you and your partner or you just want something a little more modern, get creative with your wording. Instead of traditional phrasing, try something playful and unique like this delightfully tongue-in-cheek invitation by Amore Di Carta Studio.

2. Add a pop of color

Use bright and bold hues to make your invitations eye-catching. We love this graphic yellow and white beauty from Noteworthy Invitations by Design.

3. Incorporate a fun design element

For a truly one-of-a-kind wedding invitation, add a unique design element like a fun pattern or custom illustration. The Wildflower Row invitation by Open Air Paper has us dreaming of flower crowns and boho gowns.

4. Use non-traditional materials

Make your wedding invitations stand out with non-traditional materials, like wood or acrylic. This will give your design a modern twist, even if the rest of the elements are fairly traditional, like this dreamy invitation suite from Lettering by GRG.

5. Choose a unique shape or size
