You're Invited!

add texture - a little detail goes a long way. Here, fabric is used create some edginess to the classic invitation format.

add an object - a multipurpose invitation! Not only does this invite double as a handkerchief but also as a map of the wedding's location.

add curiosity & secret compartments! Who doesn't love finding little surprises...

Incorporate what is important to you and your spouse-to-be, like your appreciation for vintage records

Your invitation choice will allow your family and friends to get an idea of what to expect as far as style, attire, setting etc. Don't be afraid to be yourselves and incorporate your personalities and wedding day style into your invitations. Remember, your wedding day is for you and the one you love so make it personal and always have fun with it.
