You may have done it all before, but often second marriages or renewing your vows are completely different from the first time you got married. You want this occasion to be as memorable as the first, obviously for different reasons and perhaps in a very different way, but there aspects of the wedding that can easily be made unforgettable such as your invitations, and there are so many ideas out there to help you make this aspect of your wedding truly remarkable. Here are just a few ideas to help get your creative juices flowing and to help you to make some truly beautiful wedding invitations

1. Handmade Wedding Invitations

Handmade has become much more popular of late, and with a huge amount of craft and hobby shops opening on the high street, finding the tools for DIY invitations could not be simpler. From designing your own personalised stamp to investing in a heart shaped paper cutter, there is something for every budget. A handmade invitation can be the perfect pick if you have chosen a theme for your wedding as you can incorporate these themes, such as colours or a specific year, within the invitation. This goes for the envelopes too, and companies like All Colour Envelopes can supply you with the perfect envelope to match your beautifully hand-crafted card.

2. Graphic Design

There are many graphic designers out there who will be happy to design your wedding invitations for you. This is a fantastic choice if you want something a little more modern, or with a unique twist. Online stores such as Etsy are a great place to browse when considering this option, as pre-designed wedding invitations (which can be personalised with your names, dates and event details) often don’t cost a fortune whilst looking like they did.

3. Personalised Record

Perhaps one of the more unique ideas that is out there, is having a personalised vinyl record made up with your invitation details in the middle. Although the record doesn’t actually play, it is a beautiful memento for both you and your guests to keep. Although there are several companies out there offering to create this sort of invitation for you, this is another idea you can in fact make yourself to save money, as cheap vintage vinyl is so readily available and make the perfect canvas for handwritten wedding details.
These are just a few ideas to get your creativity flowing, and we hope they help to inspire you to create beautiful and memorable wedding invitations. All you need to do now is decide upon the finer details of your big day, and you’re good to go.
