Colours speak to our brains and influence the way we feel. Let’s take a peek at the impact certain colours can have on your emotions


Do you want to tell the world how powerful your love is? The colour red expresses strength and confidence. Excite your guests with a passionate red colour scheme that announces your wedding date.

2. Eye-Catching Inserts

Invitation enclosures are a classic way to give your guests all of the information about the wedding. Here are some of the inserts a wedding invitation can include:

  • RSVP cards
  • Dress code slips
  • Maps of the wedding location
  • Pre-wedding details
  • Post wedding details

Unique wedding invites are the ones that think outside of the box.  Instead, of using traditional inserts, try using a variety of geometric shapes. One of your inserts can be a triangle, while another one could be a circle.

Try sprinkling in a few polygon shapes too to make the attention-grabbing effect complete. The differently shaped pieces of the invitation will be a pleasant discovery for your guests.

If you’re only sending invitations to close family and friends you could also add photos. The photo collage invitation, along with its special inserts, will become keepsakes for guests to cherish over the years.

3. Outdoor Wedding Invitations

Where is your wedding taking place? A theme can help inspire a multitude of wedding invitation ideas. Animal and plant lovers can use their outdoor wedding to create a nature theme for their invitations.

Wildlife Illustrations

If your an animal lover whose wedding is taking place outdoors try creating a wildlife guide.

Gather a few photographs of native plants and animals in your area. Or to add a children’s storybook feel, see if you can find illustrations of the animals and plants, instead of actual photos. Next, write down the animal and plant names, along with a few fun facts.

Alongside each illustration of a plant or animal, you can have 1-2 sentences that include the animal’s or plants, name and fun fact. Guests of all ages will love having their very own guide to the local wildlife.

Tree Theme

Tree’s are another way to reference the outdoor theme. Start, by choosing a colour scheme for your invitations that reflect nature. Colours of green and orange would work perfectly for this. The colours you choose can create the background of the invitation, along with the lettering.

After choosing your colours you’ll want to find an image of a tree. On the main invitation have a picture or illustration of your favourite tree. Alongside the tree, you can add the wording for your wedding invitation. Finally, have some of your inserts be in the shape of a leaf.
