A wedding invitation can be extended in a number of different ways–by word of mouth, telephone, email or traditional written invitation. Typically, wedding invitation etiquette requires that you make sure that guests know the who, what, when, and where of the event.

Ideas to personalize your wedding invites

When we talk about personalized wedding invites we think about the invitation design, text, color, fonts, shape, design, etc. But there are many other ways to personalize your wedding invitation, regardless of the things mentioned before.

Add Your Picture

A picture of the two of you on your wedding invites is as personal as you can get. If you think that a picture of you two is a little too much, you can always go with silhouettes or sketches. This way, not only do you personalize your wedding invitation, but you set a romantic mood.

Add the place where you live

If the place where you live or are getting married is special to you, use it as inspiration to personalize your wedding invitation. You can talk to your designer and ask him to use famous architecture, known motifs, your state emblem. One of my favorite personalized wedding invite was an Italian inspired one, with the Coliseum architecture on it.

Engraved wedding invites

Although engraved wedding invites are popular nowadays, not many people find them appropriate for such an event. As most of the engraved wedding invites are made on wood, marble or acrylic, think about the vibe they bring with them, before choosing this type of personalized wedding invites.

A stamp with your picture

You can personalize your wedding invitation just by choosing a different stamp for your invites envelope. To make sure you don’t spend too much on your personalized wedding invites, choose your favorite invitation design on the market and add a custom made postal stamp with your picture.

Map on your wedding invites

You can personalize your wedding invitation by adding a map in two ways. You can include a map with directions to the ceremony, reception, and any other wedding related events that might be happening that weekend. Or, you can draw a map of places that are meaningful in your relationship. You can start with the spot where you met, and you can end with the church where you are having your wedding ceremony, or the house where you are going to live.

Video wedding invites

Many of the young couples like to have unique wedding invitations, so they choose to make a recording with them inviting their guests to their wedding. I recently received such an invitation and I loved it. The couple chose to tell a story, and this story included all the details a wedding invitation needs.

Although it involves a lot of work and patience, writing the text for your wedding invites is one of the best ways to personalize them. Your handwriting on your wedding invites shows respect an honor for your guest, and sets a romantic mood.
