How to choose your unique wedding invitations

We work with numerous internal and external designers, who all have different styles and take inspiration from different places. This means that we are able to offer a wide range of unique wedding invitations that will be perfect for your one-of-a-kind wedding! For some couples, the choice will be easy and they will fall in love with one of our unique wedding invitations straight away! For others, it may be difficult to choose which of our invitation designs best matches their wedding style. Here are a few things to bear in mind when narrowing down your shortlist:

  • Your wedding colour scheme: Give your guests a hint of the unique décor that will await them by choosing a unique wedding invitation design to match. Use the filters on the left of our catalogue to narrow down your choice by colour.
  • Your wedding theme: You may already have a theme or wedding style in mind so choose your invitations accordingly.
  • Your wedding venue: Wherever you are getting married, we are sure to have wedding invitations that will suit the style of your venue. Choose floral motifs for a garden wedding or opt for a touch of foliage for a woodland wedding. We also have invitations suited to destination weddings such as our bright “Palermo” wedding invitations or vintage “Provence” wedding invitations.
  • Your personalities: Take the opportunity to pour some of your personalities into your unique wedding invitations, whether that be through your design or your wording!

Otherwise, a sure way to make your invitations unique is to opt for one of our photo wedding invitation designs, that will allow you to share one of your photos from your engagement photo shoot or your latest romantic getaway. Your wedding guests will be delighted to receive a photo of the happy couple and are sure to display your invitations on their fridge or mantlepiece.

  • High-quality paper types: Give your wedding invitations a unique feel with our shimmering iridescent paper.

Complete your unique wedding invitation suite

Our unique wedding invitations are designed as part of a wider wedding stationery suite, meaning that you can create matching wedding invitation inserts and day-of wedding stationery.

Create a unique wedding invitation suite by accompanying your invitations with matching guest information cards and RSVP cards, to ensure that your guests have all the information that they need about your special day and make it easy for them to reply to your kind invitations. Keep everything matching with wedding invitations and inserts in the same colour, or mix and match the colours to create a trendy mismatched wedding stationery suite! Secure your wedding invitations together with your inserts using our wedding invitation belly bands. Take a look at our belly band tutorial for more information.

You may also wish to create unique evening wedding invitations for those guests only invited to the evening festivities. Take a look at our guide to creating evening wedding invitations for some ideas.

When should I send my unique wedding invitations?

  • 3-4 months before the wedding. Even if your guests reserved the date after receiving your save the date cards, they will still need all the finer details well in advance so that they get organised.
  • More than 4 months before a destination wedding, seeing as your guests will probably need to book flights and accommodation.
