Need a little wedding invite inspo? Take a look at these ideas we love.
There’s no denying the thrill of receiving a wonderful wedding invitation (or let’s be honest, sending one out!) and the newest trends in personalized stationery is frankly fabulous.
Colors, design, custom illustrations, motifs, monograms, alternative mediums and hilarious words are all par for the course now and this lack of stuffy formality can be both beautiful and endearing. The senders are sending out a very personal message. And the receiver immediately gets the intimacy.
WeddingSutra presents a list of wedding invitations that caught our eye and captured our hearts. Here are some of them created by our WeddingSutra Favorites.
Virtual Reality Based Wedding Invitation by Puneet Gupta Invitations
Welcome to your future! Now, take your guests there too! Puneet Gupta of the eponymously titled Puneet Gupta Invitations decided to bring a little time travel into the mix. He shares, “Pratik and Kamakshi’s wedding invitation is a trunk-inspired world map-themed explosion box. It opens to reveal the various wedding events and corresponding dress codes. You find cute 3D cartoon versions of Pratik and Kamakshi standing gleefully on real grass from Thailand. The story is then taken forward with a virtual reality headset! To enjoy the adventures of Pratik and Kamakshi, you attach the headset to your mobile phone and place it on your head.”
Watercolors and Flowers by Kankotri
This wedding invitation card designed by Kankotri reflects the sheer elegance of the wedding to come. The team decodes the design for us, “The inspiration behind the design was a Love Bird theme. We used watercolor washes and a splash of florals and every insert was designed with absolute attention to detail; vibrant colors for each function, different birds and a very cute, innovative script provided by the bride herself.”
Artistic Brush Stroke Suite Invitations by CreateAFlutter
What would the invitation to a wedding between a makeup artist and a woodwork designer look like? We present this creation with artistic brushstrokes, gold calligraphy and an intuitive design that gives an elegant, rich aesthetic. Team CreateAFlutter worked a faceted brief – subtle, minimal, unusual, fun, sophisticated – and came up with this. They say, “We feel the Brush Stroke Suite invitation is one of our many uncommon invitations and it explains the marriage of these two artistic individuals beautifully.”
A ‘Traveling Diary’ Invite by Moor Designs
This unique wedding invite, designed by Moor Designs, is planned like a travel diary where each event invite included a country or city that was close to the couple’s hearts. They share “For this particular card, the couple didn’t want to use skylines, or the regular Passport/ Boarding pass theme. This time, we decided to do something that guests would be able to keep as a souvenir, with all the elements of a trip involved. Hence, we came up with this postcard style invitation. The couple wanted to put across their relationship along with places in the world that meant something to them. India – where they’re both from, New York – where they got to know each other, Thailand – where they got married and a Grand Reception that lead to their Happily Ever After!”
Art-History themed Invitation by Pink Whistle Man
The sky’s the limit when it comes to inspirations for a wedding invitation. The world of art itself is an endless palette of color, concept and cues. Pink Whistle Man managed to pull off an art-history themed wedding invite that is a curated look at some of the world’s favorite paintings. Ranjani of Pink Whistle Man tells us about it, “Anshita and Chetan studied art history together and I was really very keen on using that as the core element in the card. Together we explored different themes and picked Impressionism as the binding element and then matched famous Impressionist paintings to details of each function. For example, the welcome dinner, to be held outdoors was announced by Van Gogh’s Starry Night. The mehndi was by a pond so of course, we used Monet’s Water Lilies!”
An Art-Deco Inspired Invite by Turmeric Ink
The couple provided the creative folks at Turmeric Ink with inspiration for this very personal invitation. They say, “Arvind is an architect and Vrinda is an art historian, both based in London. They share a love for Art Deco and Mumbai (one of the world’s Art Deco capitals) is where they’re both from. That was where we found the seeds of inspiration for their wedding suite. We used a unique printing technique evolved exclusively by us, and included a bag; two slim boxes of custom packaged chocolates and personalized wax seals.”
Lavish Invite Box by Izhaar by Core Designs
This ‘boxed’ invitation is out of the box. Designed by Izhaar by Core Designs, it’s like opening a present and the structure holds many surprises. The team says, “We are constantly trying to evolve the way our boxes look and function. With this Ganesha invitation box, we put the contemporary into the traditional. There are three parts to this invitation – the idol, the invitation and storage for treats.”
