The invitation plays a very pragmatic role in your wedding preparation — it imparts important information to your friends and family. Yet beyond serving a simple, functional purpose, it is also a great way to show off your personal taste and set the tone for your special event.
There’s certainly no shortage of invitation styles to choose from — that is, unless you’re a same-sex couple.
You can choose something generic, a traditional eggshell white announcement with your names scrawled in calligraphy. Or you can choose an invitation that screams “gay” with rainbows or two mustaches, which may not be your speed either.
Luckily, more designers are devoting their talents to creating wedding invitations that speak to same-sex couples.
“For a long time, especially in the invitation world, gay wedding invitations were somewhat of an afterthought,” said Jennifer Cochrane, founder of the wedding invitation company Two Guys Wed. “I see the gay wedding industry finally starting to get its own voice.”
Here are ten invitations that that are perfect for same-sex weddings — whether your style is modern, classic, humorous, subtle, or simply your own.
