10 Inspiring Same Sex Wedding Invitations

Find the perfect stationery for your day

0 Shares

In 2003, Canada became the first non-European country to legalise same sex marriage. This proud milestone means that gay weddings in Canada are fabulously happy occasions, full of love, laughter, family and friends.

As with any big day, the tone for a civil marriage is set as soon as the invites (or save the date cards) are sent out – so the stationery is a hugely important part of the wedding preparations.

Your stationery helps to establish the theme and the style of the wedding and, if friends or family members don’t already know that you are having a civil marriage, it can help to convey that you’re celebrating the start of your shared life with a partner of the same sex.

To inspire your stationery choice, we’ve selected 10 of the most beautiful same sex wedding invitations to share with you.

Capture Your Style – and Your Guests!

As well as performing a functional purpose (making sure your guests keep the crucial date of your nuptials clear), a “save the date” card can also capture something of your personal style. This fun design would be perfect for a couple into midcentury mod culture - or general retro fans – and a wedding invitation in the same illustrative style will keep the vintage theme going.

Eternally Yours

A same sex wedding invitation does not have to depict the bride and bride, or groom and groom; a more traditional wedding invite with a simple and beautiful design works just as well. With a pair of lovebirds, and a love-heart, this vintage inspired design speaks volumes – and would work perfectly for a male or female civil marriage invitation.
