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 of my friends took this very seriously, looking high and low for the exact right invites. Some have made their own, while others have ordered 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 their own, for sure!
For me, I love handmade things and treasure unique and personality-driven design, but also know my limitations when it comes to crafting paper things for myself, so I know that one day, I will be purchasing my very own handmade cards. In helping other friends search for their own special set, I have saved many of my favorite designs that I would like to share with you today. Though this list is 37 deep, (thankfully? scarily?) it doesn’t even being to skim the surface on what all is out there! Take it for inspiration and then set out to find your own perfect invites. Oh, and congrats!
