Sarah works as a wedding planner in the UK, but also has an avid interest in graphic design. She absolutely loves weddings, and is looking forward to her own wedding (although she’s still looking for Mr. Right).
There’s a lot to think about when you’re planning a wedding: you’ve got to arrange the location, venue, catering, transportation, and most importantly, the wedding dress (seriously, guys, don’t forget this one!).
It’s quite easy to get carried away with the big things (there’s certainly a lot of them), and often, some of the smaller details simply don’t get the attention they deserve because of this.
Your wedding invitations almost always fall victim to this problem, which is a shame, as there’s some super-creative stuff you can do with them; it just requires a bit of effort.
I’ve seen a tonne of creative wedding invitations in my time (yep, I’m the sad person who spends hours browsing through them on Pinterest!), so I thought I’d round up some of my all-time favourites below for you need a printing company to have them made we recommend fastprint for invitations.
I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I did!

Here at WeddingLovely, we’re huge fans of the internet and how much easier it has made our lives (which is why we do what we do!)

Vince La Rosa has been matching couples with their perfect wedding band for over five years at TungstenWorld.com. You can see more of his tips and advice on all things tungsten carbide, cobalt, titanium and weddings online at the Tungsten World Education Center.
Since I started working in the wedding industry, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to thousands of brides and grooms about their wedding bands. And in that time, I’ve helped every type of customer from the picky bride to the ambivalent groom, the big spender to the bargain-conscious couple and everything in-between.
While I’ve quickly learned no two couples are alike, over time I’ve gained enough experience to know the best way to help narrow down the vast array of wedding bands choices out there to help find The One. And it really boils down to three simple questions: color, budget and lifestyle.
I love Uber. I love Uber. If you haven’t heard of Uber yet, Uber is an awesome app you can use to call a taxi, private black car, or rideshare. Instead of calling a traditional taxi service, you can use the app on your phone to set your destination, see nearby drivers, track your driver heading towards you (no wondering where the driver is as you’re waiting) and pay automatically for your fare (no calculating tip awkwardly at the end of the drive!)
In San Francisco (near where I am from and Uber’s original launching city), grabbing a taxi is pretty much near impossible. With Uber, I’m generally guaranteed a ride with no hassle within minutes of requesting a car. Amazing. It’s pretty much my fav new app.
More and more awesome couples are using Uber for their wedding transportation, for themselves and their guests, especially now that Uber has launched in most cities and countries worldwide. Even if they aren’t launched in your city yet, it’s worth it to grab the app since it’s invaluable when traveling and you’re in a strange city with strange cab companies.
Just imagine how pleased I was when Uber approached WeddingLovely for a great partnership — Uber is offering all new users $30 off their first ride.
- Simply download the app (available for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone)
- Enter the promo code WLOVELY…
- …and you’ll get $30 deducted from your fare. Most rides will come in under than amount, so it’s basically giving you a free ride!
Not only can you use this code for yourself, but you can also print out the flyer above (download a large printable version here) and pass out to your wedding guests, friends, family, clients, and customers.

Good morning! Today we’d like to introduce you to a really innovative, alternative gift registry called SoKind that allows couples to register for gifts from the heart rather than a bunch of blingy stuff. From SoKind:
Friends and family. That’s what wedding receptions boil down to, right? It would be a lot less work and cost if a wedding consisted solely of a ceremony. No need to worry about finding a venue or coordinating entertainment. No need to worry about menus or seating arrangements. Yet despite the hassle, many people still choose to commemorate one of life’s biggest events with a celebration.
