This past week my fiance and I have been working on our guest list...one of the toughest tasks thus far in wedding planning. On the positive side, it has made me start thinking about the invitations. I'm really excited to pick how ours will look and figure out ways to make them personalized to us and our wedding location. I love paper goods so the invites are important to me. They are also one of the first impressions your guests will have of the wedding and include some very important details for making sure everyone makes it to your big day (or weekend)! I don't really know what I want to have them look like beyond going with our venue (outside, bed and breakfast near Mount Hood in Oregon) and fitting with our personalities and wedding color palette. So, I did some searching for inspiration. I like a wide variety of styles, from casual and quirky to more formal and traditional, colorful to black and white, and so on.
Here are some of the invitations that are inspiring me...
At first glance these seem more traditional, but when you look a little closer, there are some great details and unique aspects like the accordion-folded invite.
I love when maps are included!
Liking the calligraphy and lace on these.
These are super fun and personal - they used their dog! And took inspiration from chalkboard writing since the couple met in grade school.
Incorporating the mountain that will be the backdrop to our vows. ?
How did you pick your wedding invitations?
