Hardcover wedding invitation

A colleague got this the other day and I snapped a few pictures of it to share (with identifying information blurred out). It's a hardcover, bound wedding invitation. Has anyone seen such a thing before? Granted, I'm not up on the latest in bridal trends, but it was new to me.

The vellum was personalized with the couple's initials.


  1. A little over-the-top to me. Then again, I DIY-ed my invites and left out a lot of enclosures to try to be eco-friendly.

  2. This actually makes me angry, if you can believe it. It always astounds me how much money people throw down the drain in the name of weddings. Just when I think it can't get more ridiculous, it does. What is going to happen after guests receive this? They are going to throw it away, or clutter up their own home because they feel too guilty to throw it away. People that are willing to spend this kind of money are driving up prices for everyone else, hence the anger. Did I mention I'm putting off getting married simply because of the ridiculous prices? ha

  3. I have to admit that I agree with you ladies! This is a big over the top, in my opinion.

    I imagine that the first person to pitch this sort of thing is appealing to the competitive family that feels the need to show off to, impress, or one up their friends.

    I had friends recently do electronic wedding invitations. While doing the traditional thing is fine, these friends aren't traditional and they are also very conscious of the environment...it fit their style completely.

    We wound up getting them a tree as a wedding gift! :)

  4. I think the invitation is pretty - Perhaps you could glue photos of wedding inside and give it to the Bride or use it yourself as a keepsake photo album. Seems such a waste to toss it!

  5. Oh, it didn't come to me! It came to a colleague and the wedding is on the other side of the country. He's not even close to the people getting married, just knew one of them when they lived here. He's not going.

  6. I didn't post a comment yesterday because I didn't want to offend,. . . but now I see that I'm not alone :)

    My first thought was "Oh my gosh how wasteful, expensive, and not-earth-friendly."
    My second thought was "Now Jane, don't be judgemental."

    In summary, it's clever, it's fancy, it's differnet. But it's not my sorta thing.

  7. Check out an amazing Wedding Invitation Boutique called Lure Sydney.

    They have all these Invitations starting from as little as $5.95 so they look expensive but they are actually not! Impress and wow your guests for your special day with these invites! I love them!
