Classic wedding stationery may be beautiful but it’s not for everyone. Some modern couples are breaking with tradition and choosing unique, unusual designs for their special day.
Here are a few quirky and adventurous ideas that are sure to add some style to your wedding stationery.
Show your personality through a quirky design. Choosing something that reflects your interests or hobbies instantly makes your wedding stationery feel personal to you. Whether you’re into travel, food, or even pop culture, there’s a design out there for every couple. Plus, you’ll impress your guests if your stationery matches your quirky wedding theme and décor too.
You don’t have to base quirky wedding stationery around your interests though. There are plenty of unique designs that anyone can appreciate. If this idea appeals to you, simply search for original and beautiful artwork that catches your eye. Look out for unusual patterns, cool colours, and creative motifs if you want your stationery to stand out from the crowd.
If you still can’t find artwork that captures your quirky vision, you can always commission a bespoke design to ensure every little detail is exactly as you imagined.
If a creative stationery design doesn’t quite have the wow factor you want, combine it with some unique presentation for a stunning statement.
These days there are so many amazing alternatives to traditional paper-based products. For instance, a save the date card might not have the impact you want when announcing your special day. So, why not send a balloon which shows your invitation when inflated? Or you could invest in custom items like pencils, notebooks, or even CD sleeves that have your wedding date printed on the front. There’s a huge list of zany items you can transform into fun save the date cards and invitations.
Invitations and cards aren’t the only wedding stationery available with a creative twist. Fall for the charm of deeply personal alternative guest books. Personalised art that guests can sign or add their fingerprints to will give you a keepsake you’ll treasure forever, plus they make a wonderful decoration for your new home together.
You could also try your hand at a little DIY and add embellishments to your stationery. Ribbons, buttons and diamanté stones are an affordable way to give your paper some extra pizazz.
