The invitation is the first introduction to your wedding for most guests and it is therefore important that it fits perfectly with your wedding theme so people know what to expect from the big day.
I am fortunate that my fiancé has been a professional designer and can make a vintage design. I have been diligently looking for nice invitations that can help him on his way.

If you aren't as lucky as me, then it is important that you do a good preliminary search for invitations that you like and keep them on your Pinterest board. Do not immediately shut out a graphic designer in advance! There is someone for every budget with a little search.
Do you find it too expensive to have your invitation designed specifically for you and do you only find standard cards with the local wedding invitations that do not match your theme? Then browse the internet and do not exclude English sites! At www.etsy.com, for example, you all have self-employed people who are not expensive and who are prepared to print Dutch texts.
To help you on your way in your search for original invitations, I have placed several invitations in this blog that our not ours, but are too fun not to share with other brides.
