Wedding invitations that we love

For many couples, the save-the-date and invitation are a really big deal and a lot of thought, planning and energy goes into getting them perfect. They are, after all, something that sets the tone of the event and the expectations of the guests.

Buzzfeed ran a feature on some amazing wedding invitations from actual real couples. These are absolutely incredible! I would love to meet some of these fun-seeming people.

They have a beautiful selection of stunning wedding invitation designs to choose from, along with cards for thank yous, RSVP postcards, and of course cards for all occasions.

These are some of the designs that caught my eye. Click through to see further details about each one.
