Dear friends, as you know, it is our mission to explore all things wedding and find new and creative solutions to make your special day memorable and unique. Today we are going to focus on one of the items that will be at the top of your to-do-list when you start planning: wedding announcements.
We have already discussed the tradition behind this custom and the best way of composing the text for your announcements. Their primary function is, of course, the conveying of the happy news to your guests, and giving them important information such as the time, date and venue of the event. And yet you should never forget that announcements are the wedding equivalent of business cards: they should convey the style and mood of your reception at first glance. That’s why you should pay as much attention to the design as to the content.
Today we will look at ideas for unusual and creative wedding announcements. Sometimes, all you need to define the style of a wedding is a touch of colour – if that’s the theme you have chosen. If, however, you have opted for more uncommon ways of customising your reception, here are 10 unconventional ideas for your wedding announcements. Brides who are looking to impress their guests will love them!
