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 Zazzle.com. Enjoy!

1. Bracket

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