13 Unique Handmade Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations are an interesting part of the whole Big Day operation. They’re the first thing that people see as a representation of your union (besides your engagement ring and perhaps engagement photos), and they can say so much about your personality and/or the type of wedding you’ll be having. Some take this very seriously, looking high and low for the exact right invites. Some make their own (good on ya!), while others order from handmade vendors. Still, I have a few friends who aren’t exactly paper or design enthusiasts, and after deciding to focus more of their attention on other details, went with very simple, traditional invites from Hallmark or even an online printing site like Snapfish. To each her own, for sure!

For me, I love handmade things and treasure unique and personality-driven design, and I know many of you do as well. In helping other friends search for their own special set, I have saved many of my favorite designs that I love to share. And this list doesn’t even begin to skim the surface on what all is out there! Take it for inspiration and then set out to find your own perfect invites. Last year, I rounded up 37 (!) of my top picks (which you can see here) and now I’m back with thirteen more that I love. Enjoy!

Personally, I love anything that someone has taken the time to make. My granddaughter made the birth announcements and the baptism announcements for my great grandson.
Thank you for the ideas.
