While you are honouring the age old tradition of cerimonial gestures of epic proportions, you still need to put yourself first. While most weddings follow similar structures, there are a few ways you can really make it your own. The very first customization would be the Wedding Invitation.
Its actually the same reason why you would choose a certain style of heels or dress. You are your own bride and everybody should see how individual you are and how different your wedding will be the moment they see the wedding invitation.
“the truth is, you pay for the designer to “design” your wedding invitations but you’re not actually paying for their creativity”
Some of you may think, “well isn’t that what we pay the designer to do?” Well the truth is, you pay for the designer to “design” your wedding invitations but you’re not actually paying for their creativity either. They would actually often work of previous client designs or just whip something up on what they “think” an invitation should look like. The best way around this is to assist the process by finding examples of your own.
Just to give you a quick example of how its done, we’ve performed a google search ourselves for “awesome wedding invitations” and narrowed the search down to images-only. Already we saw loads of cool and awesome examples that serve as a cool inspiration to wedding invitations of your own.
There’s bound to be one suited to your personality and you can show your designer exactly what you like or want to use. You can use a few examples and pick out various elements to make up your own kind of frankenstein-ish creation, lol. So here are a few wedding invites that we hope to offer you a starting point for inspiration.
The Gamer Couple
The 8-bit design of this wedding invitation is perfect for couples who still like to battle it out on the X-BOX. Remember, you can be your total selves because its all about you guys! Besides, friends and family should already know that you guys are gamers and will totally ‘get it’.
Sometimes you don’t need fancy borders or multiple colours. Using the sheer strength of good typography, your wedding invites can show that you know a thing or two about contemporary design. It’s also quite fun too. It’s not as stale as most other invites out there.
How creative is this! This is perfect for couples who have a destination wedding in mind. A wedding that takes place in a remote location like in-land or on an island.
