Toss them in the recycling? Or use the back as a note pad haha.

If you’re not using them and hate the color I can’t think of anything you’d want to do with them except keep one for a scrap book to laugh at the goof.

If there’s a decorative element on them (like flowers at the top or something), you could cut all those off and use them for anything you might need. At the end of the holidays, I take my Christmas cards and cut out the cute parts (maybe an angel or snowman or something), and then I use those bits for tags, cards, and decorations the following year.

Especially if your names are a decorative element, I’d cut those out and glue them on envelopes or notepads or something.

Also, if only the colors are wrong, hold on to them to have some extra invites in case something happens or you have enough No RSVPs to invite a few more people.

Have you seen the christmas ornaments made out of wedding invites? 

We could probably suggest more if we knew that they looked like!

-shred them and use as confetti for gifts instead of tissue paper or other packaging

-invitation ornament (search for it on pinterest or etsy)

-cut off the images and use for scrapbooking, cardmaking, or for a collage

-liners for litter box

-buy a cheap photo box and use them to decorate the outside (paper mache style)

-make paper fans  by cutting them into strips and reattaching them


That’s all I have for right now, will be back if I think of more!

@rowdygirl99:  if you guys celebrate christmas it might be cute to make some of these for yourself/parents then!

You can get empty ornaments at craft stores, and I found plastic ones at walmart

You might also be able to snip off the tops and use them as favor tags or something

If you bought a nice, heavy weight paper: 

– Fold them with text on the inside to make the table tents

– Make the ceremony program/menu card on the back and mount it on colored cardstock 

– Make a seating chart on the back of individual panels (1 table each) and mount it on foam core

– Keep some extras for last minute invites 😉 

– Grab a few colors of spray paint, a hole punch and a bottle of wine and make ombre confetti

If you’re having a casual, outdoor wedding, you could use them to make paper fans for the ceremony?
