How to decorate an invitation letter for a wedding
The newlyweds today find a huge assortment of a wide variety of invitation templates. It is because of the large number of different options and there are difficulties in choosing. What to choose: a standard postcard, which you can buy in any store, or a designer masterpiece? What is guided in the choice and, in general, where to start?
Before you start choosing an invitation, take care of the following:
Think about all the details of the celebration:
- Place of celebration;
- The time of the event and its main points (ransom of the bride, painting in the Registry Office, exit ceremony, photographing, walking, feast);
- Theme of wedding celebration (if any);
- Stylistic decoration of the wedding (color decoration, floral decoration, attention to special details);
- Newlyweds costumes (many ladies want their invitation to match the color scheme of their dress, bridesmaids dresses or suits of the groom).
Focus on details
For example, if your wedding is devoted to a topic, then your invitation form should also be formalized in the general style of the celebration.
The invitation form should contain all necessary information about the celebration, the time of all planned events, the theme and style of the event.
If the painting and the banquet itself are held in different establishments, then in the invitation letter, be sure to indicate the time and place of all events.
When to hand over / send wedding invitations to guests:
The invitation form should fall into the recipient’s hands even if you have already invited him to your event orally.
Notify your festival in advance, so that the guest can reply to you in time about your intentions, and you were able to compile a final list of guests.
In case the guest lives far away from you, it is necessary to notify him about the event even earlier by putting in the envelope a stamp and a note with your return address. This will make it easier for the invited person to respond to your invitation.
It is preferable to send invitation templates to guests for a month and a half or a month before the scheduled date of the celebration and even those whom you have already verbally invited.
The invitation to the wedding is the first thing that begins your unforgettable holiday! And in order to make this celebration unforgettable not only for you, but also for all guests, please fill out the invitation form in the most non-standard way!
If you want to create an exclusive wedding invitation, do not buy ready-made template cards in a simple store.
If you do not have time for hand-made, then use the services of specialists of the printing house. In this article, you are presented with templates for issuing invitations in the most unusual and non-standard way! Perhaps these examples will help you include your imagination!
Invitation card with own hands with flowers and hearts
Take a sheet of A4, cut the necessary paper size and fold it in half so that there is still about 4 cm from the bottom. Write all the information about the celebration on this ledge.
On an empty place, draw floral motifs that would serve as the original decoration of your invitation. It can be anything: lilies, violets, luxurious roses, whole flower bushes or flowering trees on the background of wedding rings. By the way, engagement rings interwoven with flowers – this is the symbol of marriage!
In addition to flowers, various doves, birds, hearts and other decor elements will serve as an excellent decoration. If, for example, your wedding celebration falls on Valentine’s Day, then complete the invitation letter with hearts.
If as a final fixing layer you put a colorless varnish on the invitation letter, then this will be a real work of art!
Invitation for a wedding
Form of invitation in the bottle
If your wedding is dedicated to the nautical theme, then you should also issue the invitation letter accordingly: use the bottle inside which place the invitation form itself, as well as various seafood. It can be pebbles and seashells or even a map with a detailed description of the place where the guest can find the newlyweds.
Invitation letter from parchment / papyrus
If you want to hold a wedding in the ancient Greek style, then use as an invitation letter a papyrus or parchment that you can make yourself by putting the paper in a strong infusion of coffee or tea, drying, typing and using a cigarette lighter to give the effect of antiquity.
Also, as a form of invitation, gray paper for packing is also suitable. Carry out the same procedures with it as with the usual A4 sheet, tie the ribbon at the end and add wax seal, if desired. Papyrus can be supplemented with wooden sticks.
Instead of papyrus, you can also use coarse material, for example, burlap.
Drawn wedding invitation cards
If you are a newly-married couple with an excellent sense of humor, then show this quality in the choice of the invitation form: draw your invitation! Let it be funny and angry drawings – your guests will appreciate your non-standard approach!
Wedding Invitations with Bows and Ties
Luxuriously look different bows, ropes and ties as decorative elements that connect parts of the invitation letter. You can use them only from above, from the side or inside – in any case it will look interesting and original.
At the invitations below you will not see any super complicated elements: just a bow and text! But they look just gorgeous!
Wedding invitations in the form of a tear-off calendar
Wedding invitation letter can be made in the form of a detachable calendar, consisting of 4 parts: the top, decorative, text and back. You can connect all the details with a decorative tape from above.
Wedding Invitations in a Folder
Very unusual looking form invitations to the folder. To make such an option, you will need to print the text on a sheet of paper and make the folder itself.
The folder can look like a regular binder, or you can decorate it with decorative elements: lace and ribbons.
Very nice folders are made of silk, chiffon and organza with additional decorative details. The most interesting options are those that open in the most unexpected way.
You can also place invitations in envelopes or stylized boxes.

Wedding Invitations in Retro Style
If you, like many today, want to hold your wedding in retro style or in the ancient Greek format, then use the corresponding invitation templates decorated with old pictures, with burned edges and other manifestations of antiquity.
