I once heard a soon-to-be-married woman tell me that she and her partner are not planning on spending big on their wedding invitations because people “just throw them away anyway.”
While it is a good idea to save on wedding expenses, I disagree that invitations should be treated as an afterthought. Besides, invitations set the tone of what people can expect on your life’s biggest event. Sure, their main purpose is to inform everyone about the date and venue of your wedding but if done right, it can also help build excitement and anticipation among your guests.
Case in point, the wedding invitations you will see below are definitely not the crappy ones that will go “straight to the trash can,” as my friend tells me. In fact, you will likely keep them and display them – or even eat them, in some cases.
Check out this collection of creative wedding invitations and prepare to be blown away by their sheer awesomeness:
