Greet Your Guests with Gusto: Custom Illustrated Invitations

After receiving my girlfriend’s wedding invitation (waddd up, Tay!) a couple days ago, I couldn’t help but be inspired by her custom finished, attention-to-detail-and-design creations.  Featuring an architectural Chicago skyline, these well illustrated invites were almost as beautiful as the bride to be… wait a tic, not poss :) 

Now, y’all know me well enough (and if you don’t, how sad for you!  haha!); so, you know that there’s nothing I la-LOUVRE more than when a bride and groom customize their big day celebration with hints of their own unique personalities.  Hence, why I’m currently going Lady GaGa over custom illustrated invitations!

They truly are an INCREDS way to catch and capture the attention of all your intended attendees before the big “I do’s” and also provide an ideal means for the DIY diva bride to really shine.  From graphic designs and structured layouts to vintage comics and modern day masterpieces, there is simply no limit to what your invitations can be! 

So, whether you choose to save some moolah and create your own or really splurge and leave the printing power to a professional, custom illustrated invitations truly are an amazing accent to really get your guests excited!  Here are some of my favorites for your viewing (and mayhaps inspiring) pleasure :)
