How to give your Wedding Invitations the Personal Touch

Your wedding is said to be the most important day of your life, so why not make your wedding invitations special too? It is easy to go out and buy a bunch of pre-made wedding invitations, but they won’t be unique and will have been used by countless other couples in the past. There are many ways in which you can give your wedding invitations a more original and personal touch, making them precious to you for decades to come. Here are a few tips that will help you along:

Homemade Invites

People always say that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Rather than choosing a website to give you a mediocre template, why don’t you design and make your own homemade wedding cards to send out to your guests? You can get appropriate craft supplies from home crafts and add personalised images and text that is meaningful for you and your partner. You can even add ribbons and make it more elegant by choosing a colour theme, which may help the card to look more professional.

Real Photographs

Nothing says personal like a real photograph of the happy couple. You can incorporate these so that they appear on the front of the wedding invitation, allowing everyone to see the happy couple before the big day. Choose an appropriate photograph of course and ensure that it has great resolution before you send it off to the printers because it could return blown out or heavily pixelated, destroying the quality and presentation of your invitations.

Tell your Story

One of the best ways to give your wedding cards a far more personalised touch is to tell your own love story on the invite. According to, you can do this as an infographic, with the ceremony details presented in the back. This will give your card a vintage feel to it and will allow you to share one of the best experiences of your life in a more personal manner with friends and family.

Personal Envelope Liner

A way in which you can add an extra touch of personalisation to your wedding invitation is by adding a photograph or design to the inside of your envelope liner. This way, when your guests open it up, they will immediately see the unique design. This will show how much effort you have put into the design, of not only your invitation, but the envelope as well.

Personal Inscription

Once you have designed and created the outside of your card, it’s time to move onto the inside, which will hold all of the important information concerning the wedding ceremony. According to The Knot, you must include information such as whoever is hosting the occasion (i.e. the couple), the time of the ceremony, the location etc. There is always a request line following the host’s name, such as “request the honour of your presence,” which you can include if you like, or you can opt for something a little more personal to you and your finance
