Designing Your Own Whimsical Wedding Invitations with the Experts at Bliss & Bone

Your wedding day is fast approaching and you probably have a million things running through your mind. One of those might pertain to your wedding stationery, and whimsical wedding invitations are becoming an increasingly popular idea for couples. There are so many unique designs that are playful, exciting and different from the rest. 

In this guide, we will walk couples through the process of designing their own whimsical wedding invitation and making the best decisions for their upcoming celebration. Read on for more ideas, inspiration and guidance to consider as you plan your big day.

What Are Whimsical Wedding Invitations?

A feeling of whimsy might be what you feel when you think about your partner. It brings out a giddy, excited version of yourself—and that is exactly how you should feel about your whimsical wedding invitation. There are artistic, botanical and floral designs that fit into this category, and we will explore a few of our favorites later on. 

Like all wedding invites, these will include all of the necessary details pertaining to your event. The key pieces of information include: 

  1. The names of the hosts. Who is inviting each guest to this celebration? Traditionally, it’s the bride’s parents, and most wedding invites start with the name of the hosts and what they’re requesting from the guests.
  2. What is being requested. This next phase in the wedding invite writing process deals with the venue. If you are getting married in a place of worship, you will want to say that the hosts “request the honor of your presence.” For all other venues, etiquette rules say to write, “request the pleasure of your company.” 
  3. The names of the wedding couple. Most important is your and your partner’s names. If the bride shares a last name with her parents, who are also hosting the wedding, it is common to only include her first and middle name. Then, the groom’s name is typically written out in full. Not all couples will align with this more traditional rule, so feel free to play around with it. Many decide to only include their first names, or to write out both partners’ names out fully.
  4. Where and when the wedding is happening. In your Save the Dates, you likely shared the date of your wedding and the city where it will be located. Your whimsical wedding invitation will take it one step further and share the timing and exact venue (plus the address!) where you and your partner will say, “I do.”
  5. Requested attire. Most couples have an idea of how they want their guests to dress. It can be as simple as asking them to dress in formal attire, or as elaborate as suggesting a garden party theme. You can share these details toward the bottom of your whimsical wedding invitation, and any additional remarks can be added to your wedding website.
  6. RSVP details. This part is dependent on the type of wedding invite you choose. If you design printed whimsical wedding invitations, they should also come with a pre-stamped and pre-addressed envelope and RSVP card for your guests to fill out. But if you create digital whimsical wedding invitations, you can connect your online invite directly to the RSVP section of your wedding invite. 

Your wedding invitation is a significant part of your wedding planning process, and you want to make sure that you give your guests all of the necessary details. You can work with your stationer to determine the best wording and other elements that are recommended for your whimsical wedding invitations. 

Examples of Whimsical Wedding Invitations

You can add whimsy to practically any wedding invitation, but there are several templates that are perfect fits for this category. At Bliss & Bone, we offer customizable templates that are crafted by our team of designers. Below, you can learn more about a few of our favorite styles.

  • Whimsical wedding invitations with butterflies: There’s just something about butterflies soaring around your whimsical wedding invitation. The Carmella template does just that, and pairs these insects with a floral accent and a combination and serif and script fonts. As an alternative, the Charlotte whimsical wedding invitation also incorporates flowers. 
  • Whimsical wedding invitations with flowers: If you want to keep the colors minimal, consider a black and white wedding invitation with lots of florals. The Smith template is one example of this, and is a particularly complementary idea for a garden wedding. 
  • Whimsical wedding invitations with ornate patterns: You can’t go wrong with a pattern that reflects the overall look of your wedding. The Rosa wedding invite has rich detailing and a blend of serif and script fonts that come together to create a magical piece of stationery.

Inspiration is all around you, and your venue, favorite colors and the time of year can all inform the design decisions you make. We always recommend that you stay consistent and seek out stationery and decor that coordinate. 

When to Send Out Your Whimsical Wedding Invitations

For most couples, it is important to send out your wedding invitations about six to eight weeks before your wedding day. Save the Dates will go out farther in advance, typically six to eight months before the big day. That being said, you want to give yourself enough time to review your options with your partner. If you’ve hired a wedding planner, you can also work with them on your stationery design.
