Who doesn't want their wedding to be unique? Most women have a yearning for their wedding day to be the perfect day of their life. They want to be able to savor the memories of that special day for the rest of their lives. So, what better place to begin than with the invitations? In order for you to have wedding invitations that will really catch your guests' eye all you have to remember is the following; shape, color, uniqueness and that to many this invitation will become a keepsake.

Shape
Choosing the shape of your wedding invitation can be a tedious process. Most people assume that there is one shape and one shape only...the classic rectangle. Times have changed and it is not uncommon for an oval or round invitation to arrive in the mail. There are a multitude of sites online offering extremely cute wedding invitations including the shapes of a wedding dress or diamond ring! If the price doesn't scare you away, you can also opt for 3-D shapes.

Color
Some fail to realize just how much color can tie your whole wedding together. The place to start is with your wedding invitations which will give guests an idea about what to expect when they arrive on your special day. If you are going to have a bouquet of jonquils and daisies and your bridesmaid dresses are going to be a pale blue; it is a good idea to carry over this color theme into your invitations as well.

Uniqueness
Here is the point that provides the most oomph when making your wedding invitations stand out. There are so many new and charming ways to be creative these days. Have you considered sending out invitations with a picture of the couple's grandparent's wedding day on the front? Or, making your wedding invitations into magnets so the recipients can place it on their refrigerator and not have to worry about accidentally forgetting your special day? Depending on the theme of your wedding there are many options available online including a vintage travel wedding theme. The invitation includes a map, Save the Date ticket stub, and vintage font postcard for your guests to R.S.V.P.

Keepsakes
Another aspect of wedding invitations you need to remember is that for many, this invitation will become a keepsake. To make it even more extraordinary here are some ideas to consider: An ornament etched with your wedding invitation is a token your guests will not forget anytime soon. Some couples prefer to send pillows with their wedding invitation embroidered on the front, or even a small 5"x11" embroidered tapestry that can be hung on the wall and enjoyed for many years to come.

Just remember, your wedding invitation is the first impression of your wedding on your guests. To assure they are drawn to take part in your special day keep in mind that shape, color, uniqueness and the ability to use your invitation as a keepsake will all make your guests feel compelled to join in your celebration.
