Unique Wedding Invitations and Ideas

Use some of these creative ideas when sending out your invitations and make your wedding memorable!

Craft stores are great places to get ideas for unusual wedding invitations. The scrapbooking isles have a seemingly endless supply of embellishments, ribbons, natural papers and stickers. There are isles with silk flowers and they also have a great selection of beading and jewelry making supplies. Using these supplies are wonderful ways to create invitations that are unique to the individual bride and groom.

White glue can be brushed around the outside edges (about 1/2″) of a flat, printed wedding invitation (on card stock). Then sand should be sprinkled over the glue, allowed to dry and any excess brushed away. Small shells can be affixed to a few of the corners with hot glue, if desired.

Small silk leaves can be purchased at a craft store and glued randomly in the corners of a flat printed wedding invitation (on card stock). A few pieces of raffia can be added to the top with a small leaf holding it in the middle and glued down with a dot of hot glue.

Using Flowers on InvitationsFlowers on Invitations for wedding

The invitation should be printed on a sheet of white (or light colored) paper, that is 1-1/2″ smaller (both ways) than the underlying, dark or natural paper. Then the light paper should be placed over the dark paper and centered and affixed with a dot of hot glue to hold it in place temporarily. A hole should be punched through both pieces of paper in the top middle. A paper flower that matches the wedding flowers can be attached to the cards with a colored brad (both are available at craft stores) through the holes.

Using the same method as above for the paper, two holes can be punched in the top of the papers instead of one. The stem of a wedding flower can then be fed through the holes to attach the two pieces together.

Using their imagination and getting creative is a great way for a couple to express their love and come closer together while having fun. Plus, getting creative with their wedding invitations is a great way to get their family and friends looking forward to a fun and wonderful event.
