4 Inspiring Wedding Announcement Ideas

Planning your wedding is a full-time job. From setting the date, to choosing the vendors, you might be overwhelmed by all of the details. Right from the start, you’ll want to make a big impression with your wedding announcements. How can you tie in your theme effectively? If you’re stuck on creative ways to announce your special day, then check out these unique ideas for incorporating your theme right into the announcement.

An Air of Mystery

For couples who like to add an element of surprise, while still bringing in touches of their theme, playing with the announcements can be a great way to showcase this feature. Include a puzzle, a snapshot of a mystery image, or details shrouded in riddle. When the invitation follows, include an answer to the puzzle so that guests know your wedding will include elements of fun.

Fun and Quirky

If mystery isn’t your style, but you still like to have fun, then your announcement can still reflect your lighthearted personality without relying on games. Make your announcements into fun and unusual items. You might consider using a small token as a way to get into the wedding like a key-chain or pencil they can keep. Your announcement doesn’t have to follow traditional guidelines. Play with the design, colors and texture to create memorable keepsakes guests will love.

Natural Elements

Incorporating natural items is a great way to play with your announcements, while tying in local or organic elements. Attach sprigs of durable foliage, or tiny vials of sand to let guests know your wedding will be outdoors or on the beach. Creating natural announcements will also save money versus ordering per-printed designs.

Dressed for Success

Most brides base much of the decor, wedding party attire and invitations on their wedding dress. If you’re proud of your killer Ramona Keveza gown, and want to show off your stylish elegance in the announcements, then consider having them made with pieces of similar fabric or details of your dress.

When it comes to wedding announcements, many couples opt for simple cards that offer basic details, but your announcements provide the perfect chance to give your guests a taste of what’s to come. Get creative, and think of ways to include extra textures and unusual elements that will pique your guests’ interests. In the corresponding wedding invitations, make sure you pick up on the same theme you used for your announcements to really make a big impression.
