8 Wedding Invite Ideas You Can Steal From Fashion Week Tickets

8 Wedding Invite Ideas You Can Steal From Fashion Week Tickets

Fabulous invites are what the fashion world does best. Here are eight of our favourites to help you get creative with your wedding invitations.

1) Mulberry's vintage book

Unless you've got a mega budget this one's for a smaller wedding (postage costs!) but how romantic to send your guests a small vintage book wrapped up in string, like Mulberry's s/s2015 invites? You can pick up books for as little as 20p each at a book fair. Even if you're not able to do books we love that blue and white string.

2) Burberry's oversized illustration

We like the idea of mixing big hand-illustration with type. It's worth commissioning someone who can get the script just right, like up-and-coming fashion illustrator Dee Andrews.

3) Prada's fabric topper

Give your invites a cool bespoke look by buying a few metres of fabric in a colour you love and stitching a strip along the top of the card. Borrow a sewing machine to save time and choose a soft blotting card which can hold a running stitch. We like the frayed look at the edges of the fabric.

4) Erdem's black ribbon

Sometimes the simplest looks are the best. If you're having a sleek city wedding why not swap pink ribbon for chic black on your invite - very Vera Wang.

5) Dolce & Gabbana's kids doodles

The latest Dolce collection - and invites - featured sweet children's drawings (inspired by Angelina Jolie's wedding dress perhaps?) If you don't want something formal and you've got a little artistically-minded daughter/son/niece/nephew, why not get them to do the artwork for your wedding invite instead?

6) Delpozo's paper cut-outs

A white on white cut-out look is SO chic. You can make something similar to this yourself with card, a stencil and a steady hand, or get something laser cut by a professional. Cut-out king Rob Ryan is still the best at this sort of thing.

7) Hunter's iron-on badge

An iron-on badge! Isn't this is a cool idea for a save the date? Other ideas include: fridge magnets, origami (that folds flat) and keyrings.

8) Jimmy Choo's kaleidoscope invite

Ok - we admit this is a big budget option, but how AMAZING to send your guests a card kaleidoscope announcing your wedding when they look inside it? No-one's going to forget that in a hurry.
