Ideas and Designs for Photo Wedding Invitations: From Postcards to Viewmasters!

A photographic style wedding invitation is a great design choice because photos help tell a story and personalize the invites. There are many ways to use photographs to create unique wedding invites, from the style of photography you use (vintage, photo booth, etc), to how you print them (slides for a Viewmaster, on postcards, etc).

Recycled Swiss Postcard Photo Wedding Invitations

Designed by Emphase Sarl, these wedding invitations were printed on old postcards of the Swiss mountains. Screen printing allowed for the details and round logo to be printed directly onto the postcards, and still have the background show through.
