5 Uniquely Shaped Wedding Invitations
(+ Giveaway #4: $25 Gift Card)

Hi, Brides! Emma here. Here’s a fun fact you might not know about me: I am obsessed with paper goods. And, you already know I love all things wedding, so any wedding-related stationery is a winning combination in my book. I especially dig the unconventional finds: the uniquely shaped wedding invitations, the wood save the dates, and gold foil inspired ideas, just to name a few. So, when I spotted these insanely gorgeous wedding invites with custom shapes over at Zazzle, I had to share them with you. Here are five of my favorites, along with a special gift card giveaway ($25) to spend on anything your little heart desires at Enjoy!

1. Bracket

The bracket shaped invitation is my favorite non-traditional design. It adds elegance to an otherwise deep woods rustic style design.

Vintage Compact

vintage compact for bridesmaids

This vintage compact via Meadowbelle Market is a unique find made by Kigu of London. It is likely from the 1950’s, which is when similar floral designs were popular. When I spotted this beauty, I immediately thought about how amazing this piece would be as a bridesmaid gift. It’s re-purposed, whimsical, and each one is unique – just like your bridesmaids! And, every girl loves a pocket mirror.
