20 of The Coolest Wedding Invitations Ever

Some awesome ideas in case you’re getting married soon!

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:

These Zombie Garden Gnomes Are Seriously Creepy

Definitely the stuff of nightmares!

Ever noticed those ubiquitous garden gnomes? According to history, the origin of garden gnomes traces back to Germany in the early 1800s. Tradition tells us that gnomes are believed to be symbols of good luck. People apparently considered them as protectors of buried treasure and that they watch over crops and livestock.

These days, these mythical creatures are still popular and chances are you have these in your garden, too. If you, however, want to go outside the ordinary and give your garden a horror flavor, you might want to check out what Revenant FX has to offer.

You see, these Canadian artists are actually huge horror fans and so they’re now on a mission to transform those cute little figures into something much, much scarier. Obviously inspired by The Walking Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and others, the group are currently “bringing the undead to life, one gnome at a time” with their masterfully-crafted handmade zombie garden gnomes. ...

At This Place in Italy, You Can Literally Walk on Water!

This floating pathway is a piece of art.

Somewhere in northern Italy, people can walk on water –thanks to the art installation by artists Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon and Christo Yavashev.

Called “Floating Piers,” the bright yellow floating pathway is made from plastic tubes that measure a total of three kilometers and serve to connect two small islands of Lake Iseo. The concept was not new; in fact, it started 46 years ago. Christo and his now-deceased wife Jeanne-Claude were tasked to build a floating bridge on Rio dela Plata. Unfortunately, Jeanne-Claude died in 2008 from brain aneurysm. This, however, didn’t stop Christo from pursuing their dream.

"We chose this lake because of its marvelous location, the islands reach hundreds of meters above the sea and only 2,000 people live there," Christo told CNN. ...

Artist Creates Amazing Paintings for Your Fingertips!

Want art that you can’t just see, but also feel? Andrew Myers creates astounding artworks that were made to be touched!

There's one thing in common among almost all exhibits all over the world - they expressly prohibit anyone from touching the artwork. They even put up barriers and signs that loudly proclaim, "Please don't touch the art!" In a way, it's such a shame because art is more than just a visual medium. The emotion artwork evokes can be brought out with more than just the sense of sight.

Andrew Myers has found a way around this connundrum. He is an artist who wishes to bring the sense of touch back into the whole art experience. Using cleverly arranged screws, oil paint, charcoal, bronze, cement, and other found objects, he creates various stunning tactile paintings.

Here are some of his artworks....
