Transportation with a Twist!

If you want to make a truly grand entrance at the reception and have your guests share the thrill, consider wedding transportation that is a little out of the ordinary. Perhaps you can hire horse-drawn carriages to ferry everyone to the reception venue or even hire out hot air balloons for a skyward thrill that will have the younger members of your party squealing with delight! These one-of-a-kind transport options can even feature on your unique wedding invites for a sly hint about what is to come!

Make It Unique – Keep It Personal!

To make your wedding celebration truly unique, insert personal touches that all your guests will enjoy. For instance, include old family photos on menus, table centrepieces, and even on your unique wedding invitations to honour the history behind today’s wedding couple. You could take it a step further and include little bios of the bridesmaids and groomsmen so that all your guests can put a name and story to the women and men standing smartly beside the bride and groom. A neat photo-opportunity can have the bridal party holding up signs to indicate how they met or are related to the happy couple!

Tearing Up the Dance Floor – The AFTER After Party!

The notion of the “after-after party” has taking the world of weddings by storm.Many couples are opting for a celebration after the main reception for the twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings to keep the partying going past midnight, after some of the older guests have left. This new twist on the “after party” includes a change of dress for those who are staying up late and allows the bride, groom, and their closest friends to dance the night away. You can even mention this on your unique wedding invitations so you guests can also bring a change of clothes!

Celebrity weddings are where dreams come true, as our favourite stars get hitched, surrounded by the glitz and glam that make their lives and films worth watching! As these occasions can sometimes be very public affairs, wedding planners are borrowing ideas from these star-studded functions to make any bride feel like a star in her own right! To help create the mood for this starry occasion, design unique wedding invitations that promise to treat all your guests to an unforgettable evening of fun, excitement, and glamour!

An Uniquely “Zen” Wedding Invitation, Courtesy of Brad & Jen

In a wedding celebration that cost USD1 million, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston indulged in a simple yet glamorous ceremony when they exchanged vows in 2000. The estate hosting the ceremony was designed to resemble a peaceful Japanese Zen Garden, complete with elegant lanterns and lush lotus blooms. Your unique wedding invitations can borrow reams of elegance and class from this idea by incorporating a charming, one-of-a-kind, Zen garden theme.

Twilighting Under The Stars – A Magical, Mystical, Unique Wedding Invitation

One of the most famous movie and pop-culture franchises in the world is the Twilight series, which has set the hearts of pre- and post-adolescent fan girls aflame with the eternal love story of Edward & Bella. Many brides have chosen to make Bella’s modest wedding dress their own, which features a daring yet elegant open back adorned with lace and pearls. Your unique wedding invitations can feature this graceful theme as homage to one of the “greatest” modern romances in the world.

Roses on Unique Wedding Invites

A rose is the eternal icon of romance; yellow roses represent friendship and red roses symbolise love. The wedding of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds featured rose petals of various hues scattered on a garden aisle to create a dreamy ambiance, which can be replicated on unique wedding invitations to capture that same atmosphere of charming romance.

A Royal Celebration – Unique Wedding Invitations Inspired By Royalty

One of the most famous weddings in the past thirty-five years was the marriage of Prince Charles and Diana, and later, the marriage of Prince William and Kate. Royal weddings set hearts and imaginations on fire with their romantic appeal and magical allure. Create a unique wedding invitation to take the form of an official “royal announcement” that will introduce your happy nuptials in a grandiose manner that is fit for royalty. Mention the words “Westminster Abbey” and your guests are sold!

Think outside the bridal box and indulge in unique wedding invitations to delight your guests. Pick a theme that portrays the special elements of your relationship and use that as a decorative theme throughout the celebration. Craft a unique wedding invitation and pull off a truly one-of-a-kind themed wedding special to you both alone.

Bells & Whistles on Your Unique Wedding Invitations

Send out your unique wedding invites around three-four months in advance, which will give your guests more than enough time to plan and prepare for your special day. Yet, people can easily forget the date itself, which is why you will need truly unique wedding invitations that leave a lasting impression in the minds of every one of your guest list.

Vintage Pearl Brooch - DIY Invitations

Choose from a special array of unique wedding invites that are dressed to the nines with beautiful pearl and/or crystal accents, and some of these could take the form of enchanting jewellery such as elegant brooches or smart cuff links that can be worn on the day. To cut down on costs, consider making these by hand, and you can browse through online DIY sites to discover some splendid designs to replicate. Pinterest should help inspire you!

Tantalising Trims to Dress up A Unique Wedding Invite

When you weigh your various options for stylish and unique wedding invitations and assorted stationery, the theme you’re using for your wedding is key here. Clean and simple lines on your unique wedding invitations, place cards, engagement party invitations, and other wedding stationery perfectly capture the ambiance of a contemporary wedding theme, where “less is more”. More elaborate trims and damask designs are perfect for unique wedding invitations that are used in more formal occasions for a touch of class.

More “Oomph” For Truly Unique Wedding Invitations

If you’re seeking unique wedding invitations that add an extra dimension of specialty, consider making them 3D in pop-out form for a truly memorable and unique wedding invite that will surely be the envy of all your friends and family. Other elements to add some “oomph” to your unique wedding invites and stationery are intricate ribbon arrangements, fancy bow ensembles, and even origami creations to add an extra element of depth whilst retaining sophistication.

Use your imagination for fashioning the ideal unique wedding invitation that’s sure to be a topic of conversation amongst all your friends & family!

Your wedding invitations should be unique to your couple style and wedding theme. You can choose something as unique as a white Scandinavian themed wedding invite or something as elegant like white pearl invites, but both should maintain an element of uniqueness that sets your wedding apart from other weddings.

White Wedding

You’ve heard so many quotes and songs revolved around the “white wedding” expression. The bride doesn’t have to be the only one wearing white as your wedding theme can involve a full “white out” with everything; from linens to décor, from invitations to bridesmaid dresses. A white wedding is clean, crisp, and while white isn’t even a “colour”, it’s very out of the box.

Wedding Invitation Inspiration

Many times when speaking with vendors, they’ll ask you “what does your wedding dress look like?” as a means of inspiration for the rest of your big day. Your invitations can be inspired by your wedding gown as well…is it crisp and clean? Unique and intricate? Flowing and whimsical? Let your dress tell the story for your unique white wedding invitations.

There are plenty of designs and ideas to choose from, just enjoy browsing through the selection till you find the ideal for you!

Choosing your Happy and Unique Wedding Invitations

You don’t have to be a wedding invitation designer to know how to find a theme that is happy and uniquely styled for your wedding day. Choosing your wedding invitations is a very important part of the wedding process, so you’ll want to have these picked out shortly after you get engaged. Wedding invitations should be sent out four to six weeks before the big day, and six to eight weeks if you have a lot of out of town guests. Your wedding invitations should be designed or chosen in the style that best suits you as a couple, your wedding style and budget.

Planning a Wedding

Planning a wedding is a fun and important time in your life. It gets stressful though, so be sure to delegate as much tasks you can, stay organised and enjoy the process in its entirety. It’ll be over before you know it, so enjoy the moment and stay on task. Choosing happy and unique wedding invitations should be one of the first things on your checklists.

Happy and Unique Wedding Invitation Ideas

When we say “happy” wedding invitations, we don’t mean your invites have to have a big smiley face on them! A happy and unique theme is just one that brings a smile to everyone’s face as you choose a design that is colourful, exudes love and romance or is peppy and bright. Designs like this often make those opening the invites feel happy and excited for your big day. Choose colours for your wedding that are cheerful as well, nobody wants dreary colours meant for a rainy day!

There are thousands upon thousands of wedding invitation ideas and templates, each being used plenty of times by other brides from around the world. So what is the secret to a truly unique wedding invitation? What will help your wedding invitation stand out from the rest?

The Personal Touches

People love the extra touches people put into their event or wedding day, and this is what truly makes it unique. Add as many personal touches as you can, such as quotes that mean a lot to the both of you; song lyrics, photos of you, a story of how you two met, and anything personal that you think will give your wedding invitations an unique edge. Send out your invitations four to six weeks before the big day. If most of your guests are out of town, then send them out eight to twelve weeks so that they have ample time to make travel plans. Guests will appreciate the time and consideration you’ve put into planning like this.

Utilising Your Wedding Theme

Many times brides choose wedding invitations that don’t closely match your wedding theme or style. It’s great to incorporate your wedding theme into every aspect of your wedding; from unique wedding invitations, to your table décor, and more. Instead of just picking out something already made for your unique wedding invites, choose or design something that best represents your style and bridal style.

Your Wedding Vision

Your unique wedding invitations don’t need to be the only thing that is unique and conveys your couple style and wedding style. Guests will appreciate how closely you paid attention to detail, matched your own style with your wedding, and created a unique wedding vision that isn’t store bought or typical.

A wedding is one of the most heartfelt, emotional, and intimate events in your life. It’s also very sentimental, so why not add this aspect to your unique wedding invitations? Being a day that will be enjoyed by many, and with memories that will last a lifetime, your friends and family are counting down to share in your special day, and while you may be stressed and frantic, the day of the wedding will be unlike anything you’ve ever thought or dreamt of.

Adding Sentiment to your Wedding Invitations

You can add sentimental memories to your wedding invitations very easily, whether it’s with design applications, various websites available to design your personalised wedding invitations, and even to gather inspiration from bridal blogs and sites like Pinterest and Loverly. It’s easy to gain creativity and inspiration without even leaving your chair. From favourite quotes to music clips of your favourite songs, from a photo of the two of you to a link to an online memory board, there are plenty of ways to add sentiment to your unique wedding invitations.

Adding Sentiment to the Wedding

Your unique wedding invitations aren’t the only thing you can add memories and sentimental themes to. You can add stories of you and your fiancée to each table with photos, tiny mementos, or a CD playlist of your favourite songs. Another popular idea right now is to have your aisle tell the story of how you two met; as guests walk down you’ll be able to see the story of the two of you, and then you can relive it as you walk down the aisle to your groom as well. Be sure to wear waterproof mascara, this will make anyone cry!

Planning a wedding is an emotional, but beautiful time. Make your invitations unique by adding memories, pieces of your journey together and sentiments to make it unique and special. Happy Planning to the pair of you!

“It is such a happiness when good people get together — and they always do.”

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air, said Ralph Waldo Emerson. The sea is something we all love regardless of what era we lived in and where we live.  The sea, the beach, and all the nautical beauty that goes along with it add up to create a beautiful natural wonder that is dear to us all and also makes a very unique wedding invitation.

Nautical Themed Invitations

Everybody loves the beach—they love the colours, the theme, the style, and everything that goes along with it. We see it within design, fashion, and of course, the wedding world. You can use the nautical theme from start to finish on your wedding day beginning with your unique wedding invites. Items that are nautically themed like anchors, life preservers, sail boats, and caps are just a few of the nautical motifs that can be used for your unique wedding invitations.

Nautical Wedding Colours

We see a lot of colour schemes for nautical themed weddings that match the beach or sailing theme. Colours like red, navy blues or white are the popular colour trio. A modern nautical colour trio can include yellow, grey, and white as well. For nautical motif themed weddings, of course the classic navy blue is the most popular. You can really play this up with all of your nautical accessories and decorations, as well as using this colour scheme for your unique wedding invitations!

Nautical Motif Decor

You’ve chosen your unique wedding invitations, colour scheme, and the wedding theme—now let’s decorate, shall we? You can use motifs, props, accents, and antiques that are nautically themed to match well with this wedding vision. Looking glasses, ships in a bottle (or make it romantic with pretty hearts in a bottle), anchors, and more are beautiful nautical themed décor for your unique wedding.

Planning a wedding with a unique theme is always a fun and exciting challenge. Everyone loves the beach and the sea, so this is a great idea and theme that people will remember far after the wedding has come to an end. You can also use the nautical motif to decorate your place after the wedding! From unique wedding invites, to nautical décor and wedding accents, this is sure to be a beautiful event!
