Book Inspired Wedding Invitations

Posted October 12, 2012 | 2 Comments

Hello, loves, and Happy Friday! We’re kicking off the morning with a beautiful collection of handmade wedding invitations. Did you know your wedding invitation sets the tone for your entire wedding, right from the start? Make your wedding invitation stand out among others and set the tone for your themed wedding with a creatively styled suite. We spotted these book inspired wedding invitations by the lovely Vanessa of VO Handmade and admire the detail: vintage-inspired aged edges, faint water spots, a unique RSVP card… we love it all! Read on to see how these invitations are custom designed for your wedding (for any wedding season) and see a few examples after the jump!

Book Inspired Wedding Invitations

Instead of a traditional RSVP card, these book inspired wedding invitations include a ‘check out’ card, similar to one you may find at a library. Guests fill in the appropriate lines and know when to turn in the card based on the unique stamp at the top. This invitation suite can be styled for any wedding season: it features green leaves in spring and summer, burnt orange leaves falling from the tree in the fall, and snow covering a bare tree for winter weddings. This invitation arrives decoratively wrapped in a pocketfold with a color-coordinated bellyband and secured with an oak tree sticker.
