Choosing unique wedding invitations can be a daunting task when it comes to planning your big day. For many couples, wedding invitations are selected before the details of the event itself are finalized. Picking wedding invitations that you love is a great way to start the process of planning a wedding. Beautiful and unique invitations can be the icing on the cake to an already perfect day. The wedding invitation also sets the tone for your day, by offering clues to the kind of wedding your guests will attend; so it is important that you choose a wedding invitation that speaks to your unique style and complements the style of your wedding.
There are many choices when it comes to wedding invitations that are pre-made. While you may not want to choose a pre-made pack of wedding invitations, you can mix and match from a variety of sets to create a wedding invitation set that is totally unique to you and your spouse to be. Really love that Vera Wang paper but dig the Anna Griffin envelopes? Well, order them both and put them together. As long as you both like it – there's nothing wrong with mixing up a few different sets to create your own unique wedding invitations. Remember, this day is all about the two of you and your choices and individuality should ring through the entire event, starting with the invitations.

Another traditional, but not conventional, design offered in the Anna Griffin Wedding Album collection is the Platinum Swirls wedding invitation. The invitation consists of four separate layers, in the tradition of the most romantic and elegant of handmade invitations and Victorian cards. The backing layer is a heavyweight ecru with a fine platinum border, in the tradition of wedding invitations throughout the generations. A delicate paper patterned with platinum swirls forms a middle layer between the ecru backing and the elegantly bordered wording panel. Between the swirls and your wording, a satin platinum ribbon lends an additional touch of elegance.
Other color choices. If you do not want to use your wedding colors on your invitation, you will probably want to stick with the more traditional ivory or white paper, with black or, for a more formal wedding, metallic ink. You can use these colors on your invitation and be perfectly proper, whether your wedding colors are bold or pastel, traditional or contemporary. If you want the look of a traditional wedding invitation, but would like to implement your wedding colors, consider using one of your colors as the lining color for the envelopes. This is a subtle and attractive way to customize the appearance of your invitations. Other places to add accent colors are on envelope seals, monograms and motifs. Careful use of color can add drama or whimsy to your invitations without adding much to the price.
Darling of the paper craft industry, graphic designer Anna Griffin comes by her love of art and design naturally, she grew up in a family of artists. It is also not surprising that her love of art brought her to wedding invitations – one of her first jobs out of college was working with famed wedding designer Vera Wang. In 1994, Griffin set out on her own, launching a line of custom designed, hand-crafted wedding invitations that borrow heavily from beautiful traditional botanical prints and Victoriana.
