Love is in the Paper: 11 Beautiful Wedding Invitations

Whether you’re designing an invitation for your own wedding, for that of a friend’s or for a newly engaged client, the wedding invitations below will help with any search for inspiration you may be on. Some are fun and vibrant, some quirky, some classy. All are beautiful. And most of them have been recognized in either a HOW or PRINT competition—sometimes both.

While taking a look at these beautiful wedding invitations, keep in mind that PRINT’s sister brand HOW holds the Promotion & Marketing Design Awards every year—and there’s a category especially for promotions you’ve created to celebrate personal life events. This means that everything from your own child’s birth announcement to the invitation you created for your best friend’s wedding is a perfect fit for this competition. Enter your work by the extended deadline: 11:59pm EST on Monday, April 24.
