Aside from letting people know that you want to share your big day with them, wedding invitations are meant to give your guests a sneak peek of what your wedding will be like. Invitations will give them a sense of what's going to happen, what is appropriate to wear, or what they should bring to the event. If "We request the honour of your presence" embossed on stiff white paper doesn't sound anything like your wedding, you can get creative with your wedding invitations.
Quirky designs, a unique font, or an interesting layout can make a very big difference in the tone your wedding invites give off. Changing the wording or using a special quote also makes the invitations more personal.
Some of the real couples we've featured decided to get creative with their wedding invitations. They came up with some fresh ideas, shown in the gallery below.
