Thank Guinness it’s Friday, y’all!

Ideas We Love – Personalized Invitations

In another life, I would be a graphic designer. I absolutely love any and all paper goods. Who doesn’t love receiving a beautiful card, letter or invitation in the mail amongst all the ugly bills?

A great and fun way to inject you and your fiance’s personalities into your event is with the invitations. It’s often the first thing your guests will see and an invitation that speaks volumes about who you are, what you love, or even references the wedding site, for example, and gets them even more excited to join in your celebration. Whether you make them yourself or you have them custom designed for you, here’s a little inspiration to get you in the mood when thinking about your own invites.

The possibilities are endless with these adorable stamp sets from Yellow Owl Workshop. I can totally envision a backyard/garden party invite with just the tree and bike stamp.

On the other extreme is this gorgeous custom designed invitation set by Rifle Paper Company. Absolutely divine. (Click on the photos below to go to Anna’s blog post about Carrie and Adam’s design.)

And why not have a little fun with the process, too. I found these reply cards featured on Martha Stewart Weddings. LOVE the speech bubble – think of what crazy replies that would inspire and way more fun to keep for posterity.
