DIY wedding invitation ideas?

by DIY wedding planner on December 8, 2011

I decided I wanted to make my own wedding invitations because (1) it’ll save us a ton of money and (2) I wanted something really fun & unique. :)

I’m having an outdoor ceremony at a nature preserve/nature trail park here in town, and I wanted my invitations to hint at that, to get my guests in the mood. I found these::

Which are SO cute, but I’m not having a beach wedding, so the little “message in a bottle” thing wouldn’t make sense in my case.

Does anyone have any other ideas? I’m not looking for anything specific, just some inspiration so I can get some ideas floating around in my head.

I’d like to do something ‘similar’ to the message in a bottle idea (similar as in, not using an envelope) but what else could I do thats more… forest-ty? lol

Thanks guys, I’m sure you guys have some awesome ideas! Can’t wait to check back and read them :)
omgosh, thats an adorable idea! I’m going to leave this question open a bit longer to see if anyone else has any cute ideas that like – but I love it! so cute!

Although this may get expensive….Maybe get tiny little bird cages or something that looks like a birds nest. Then you could print your invites on origami paper and fold them into birds and slip them inside. Here is a link to some bird cages:

Or fold them into flowers and put them into a bouquet with the map, rsvp, etc. Butterflies could work in the oragami idea too.

I have also seen packets of flower seeds that you can have personalized for favors. Just print your invite info right onto the front instead.

cute idea :)

as a woodland theme i think that greens and browns could come into play.i would use a simple piece of card,print it with leaf designs and roll it up and put it into a small hollow log or tie it to a could also incorporporate woodland creatures in there as well – i saw a program on here for the wedding,i hope that will give you a general idea of the design they used – another leaf design,the first image

hope this helps!congratulations :)
