At Tying the Knot, we hold a special place in our heart for wedding invitations. No, really, we love them!

Our co-founder, Courtney, is a seasoned veteran of wedding invitations and she’s always intrigued by innovative ways to invite guests to a wedding. Recently, we sat down with a bride for a wedding day feature (coming soon!) but were extremely excited when we were given some extra design goodies to look at…and we just had to share!

Karyn and Brandon are lovers of music. Despite the overall theme of the wedding, they decided to take a different approach to personalize their invitations. And they are fantastic. Guests were travelling more than seven hours for the big day, so Karyn and Brandon created CD album invites for the long car rides.

Here’s a sneak peek at these unique wedding invitations by Karyn:

Her chalk-typography design and the silk screened CD with a vinyl press varnish made it look and feel exactly like a record: incredible!

Do you go with the wedding cake or an over-abundance of cupcakes? It narrows down to two things: traditional or fun? If you’re the kind of bride that’s determined to add casual, cute, and fun to their wedding, cupcakes are the best way to go. It’s definitely memorable, and is sure to be a big hit with the kids (and for anyone with a child-like streak). There would be no waiting for the cake cutting, there would be plenty of flavors to choose from, and they would much easier to smash into your newly-wedded spouse’s face (unless you’re not into that whole mess part, which I don’t blame you. You paid how much for that dress?!). Besides, what’s better than grabbing a cupcake and jumping onto the dance floor to get your sugar-high dance on?

I mean, just look at these! Not only do they look gorgeous (the level of detail in some of these is like mini-wedding cakes), but they add a healthy dose of delicious, childish fun:

You might want to stick with the traditional wedding cake if you’re inviting a bunch of traditional people to the wedding. But then again, it’s your wedding and your rules! The result will be delicious regardless.
