The Invites are OUT!

The Invites are OUT!


We posted our wedding invites on Monday, which means that MOST guests will have received their invites over the past couple of days! ๐Ÿ˜€

If you are reading this, and you are a family member who has yet to receive their invite, then heed this SPOILER ALERT and stop reading NOW! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Our wedding invites were non-traditional. They were……….

Race Bibs! Yes, we had TYVEK race bibs made up, with the date of the wedding in place of the participant race number. We also sent out safety pins, so that guests can take photos of themselves wearing their bibs, and send them to us ๐Ÿ˜‰

We included ‘race instructions’ along with the invites, which included details that we’d usually find at any race event: race registration (RSVP), start line details (Church details), race photos, post race refreshments, post race entertainment, etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We also had a QR code printed on each letter, which means that all guests have access to a specific wedding website, where there’s information about the wedding itself, accommodation, things to do in Tarbert, links, etc.

It’s so exciting!

So, what do you think of our wedding theme: Race to the Altar?

In many ways, marriage is like a race. The wedding is only the start line…. I’m having great fun, combining my love of running with my wedding planning!

  1. I love it! So creative and so original. Great job and so fun! I guess my invite will take a little longer to get to me since I am in Canada. I will be just as excited though when I open it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Can’t wait to see what the pics are like that you get. Love how they speak to the two of you.That is what weddings are about…the couple.

    1. Erm, yes, that’s exactly the delay….!
      Thanks, we’ve had one pic back so far: it’s very exciting!

  2. That’s a brilliant idea! We also had a nod to running in our wedding with a running themed cake and medals instead of more “traditional” gifts for the wedding party. Wish we’d thought of race bibs though!

  3. Love it all what a great idea, here’s hoping you don’t ‘hit the wall’ too often.
    How about port-o-loos at the reception, surely that’s a must for authenticity

  4. Congratulations. Great idea. When we got married ( almost two years ago) our wedding cake was shaped like a mountain with two runners in club uniform standing on the top. Have a great wedding.
