Everybody wants a wedding that is unique and stands out. Your wedding invitations will help with this. There are many options to create your own wedding invitations and they do not have to take up a lot of time or money. Here are some ideas to help you with making the run up to your big day special.

Create Photo Invitations

Photo wedding invites have become popular over recent years. They offer the benefit of showing friends and family clearly who is getting married. You may have people who have never met your partner and vice versa, and this gives your guests a sneak peak at who to look out for on the big day.

There are many ways to add photos to your invitations. You could opt for one photo on the front of a booklet style invite or on the front page of a card invitation. It is possible to hire someone to draw a caricature of the two of you instead of using a photograph or use something from an engagement shot.

Create a Storyboard Invite

People will want to know how you met and if there are any funny stories between you. A storyboard invite is a great way to do this and you can add as much or as little information as you would like. You can do this with pictures or just with writing and it will instantly make your invitation stand out from all the rest.

It offers a great starting point for the guests at your wedding; especially those who do not know you personally. It will also give them an understanding of your relationship and any details that you include on the big day, such as your wedding theme or color scheme.

Offer a Magnet Invitation

Magnets stick on the fridge and are practical. Very few people are using these for their wedding invitations, which makes them unique and personal. It is possible to include a photo on one side with the details on the other or just have the details, depending how much money you have to spend. There is also the benefit of your guests seeing the invite on a regular basis so there is no fear that they will forget the date.

The problem is that these can be relatively expensive. You will need to think about your budget carefully and shop around for quotes. They often need to be professionally made. The other option you have is to buy a range of photo magnets and include the information yourself but they will still be more than other forms of wedding invitations.
