If you’re looking to give your invites that personal touch, a cute customsied version of you and the hubby or wife to be is just perfect! Talented designers can create a mini version of you guys in illustrated form with your favourite things, kids or pets – and you can use it everywhere from your ceremony booklet to signage.

Have Fun with Your Names or Initials

If you’re after a subtle way to make your invites more personal, why not play around with your initials, create a monogram or go big and bold with your names. There’s lots of cool ways to go about a monogram or design feature using your initials whether you’re after something simple or intricate. Add in some blooms for a romantic touch, use a beautiful calligraphy for a classic feel or go graphic with something modern.

Include Your Hobbies & Interests

Another great way to make your invites a bit more personal is by incorporating your hobbies or interests as a design feature. Love festivals or music? Create a cool ticket style invite, use a record as a feature or showcase your love of travel with an awesome passport design or an illustrated globe.

Use a Photo or Childhood Pics

We’re a big fan of using photos in your wedding and one lovely way to include them is on your invite. You can have a current pic of you guys or if you want to give guests a giggle, why not include some childhood pics of yourself and himself/herself!

Highlight Where You’re From

We also love the idea of merging where you’re from as a bit of a design feature for your invite! You can highlight the areas you’re from with a map, have some cute figurines with some county jerseys or include some sign posts!

Include Your Venue
