Outside the Box Wedding Invitations

I was perusing the web recently, looking for some outside-the-box wedding invitation inspiration, and discovered some really cool ideas! So I collected some of my favorites and thought that I would share them with you. Maybe one of these ideas will spark your imagination and be the perfect invite concept for your special day!

•  Are you having a destination wedding at some fabulous getaway or place your guests will need to travel to? Create a design based around the idea of faux boarding passes and customize it with colors or images of where they’ll be going!



•  Looking for something truly unforgettable? Imagine rolling up your paper invites and putting them inside a beautiful glass bottle. This would be great for a beach wedding. If you wanted to really go all out, you could even have your initials engraved on the bottle!

•  Here’s a fun idea: have your wedding details printed on a balloon that your guests must blow up in order to read.



•  Want to really get your guests excited about your upcoming day? Get creative and record a wedding invitation DVD that you can tuck inside of your paper invite. Imagine how fun it will be for them to see you and your loved one inviting them on screen to your big day.

If you’re looking for classy, customized wedding invitations (or any paper goods really) that are truly one of a kind, contact us at BG Design Studio and tell us what you’re dreaming of! We’ll help to make your wedding invites just right for you.

Save The Date Invites

Wedding bells are in the air, and our clients Alicia and Taylor are engaged! Take a look at these gorgeous engagement photos and tell me this is not one of the sweetest couples you have ever seen!! We are so excited that they chose us to create their Save the Date invitations and we had a blast making them.

 

Alicia found us last year on Etsy and we became immediate friends.  She was beyond willing to support us BG Girls because we are a California women owned business!  We girls have to stick together… especially when it comes to making dream weddings come true!

We started working on save the dates and since we were long distance, we did all of the work over the internet and phone. It wasn’t until this January when her and her mom, Maureen, decided to visit us and we finally got to meet the bride-to-be.  It was a meeting filled with laughter -- and of course, fashion tips. We had a fabulous time and are so excited for their special day!
