So, where the heck are you supposed to start looking? That’s where we come in! Whether you were supposed to order your invitations a week ago (oops) or you’re just getting your feet wet with wedding theme ideas and colors, you’ll find it all right here. We’ve rounded up the best wedding invitations to inspire your big day including modern, vintage, beach, barn, woodland, and more. There are even more trends and colors, but this list is designed for unique wedding themes. To be honest, this list was supposed to stop at fifty, but I couldn’t help myself, hence the fifty-“plus”. Just wait until you see them all…
