Future couples are always thinking of ways to make the best wedding cards to send to their loved ones and significant others. However, a lot of people just choose the simple or artistic do-it-yourself wedding cards, or just buy ready-made templates online. But the best ones I want to share are those that are funny, one-of-a-kind, or those having weird designs.
The first one is a shared sample card from Funtoosh.com. Instead of choosing those standard formalities in the card's wording, it is formatted like a matching type exam except that; it has no blanks in it. The introduction is hilariously realistic that buries the old-fashioned happily-ever-after fantasy in marriage.
The second one is a wedding card that looks like a notebook PC with “Wedding BELL” as the logo, “BELL” has a similar logo design as Dell's. Inside looks like a desktop with different icons and a chatbox that states the history of how the couple met. If you are the kind of couple who met through chat or through the internet, this might be a great idea to start as your wedding theme.

The third best wedding card for me is a Halloween wedding invitation with a great combination of orange and black in the form of an owl. Though this is not good for couples who are superstitious, this can be very unique if the occasion is done on November. An additional surprise would be… during the ceremony, the flower girls can put candies in a plastic pumpkin container and throw them for the guests instead of flower petals in a woven basket.
Next is the laser-cut card. Though there have been a lot of laser-cut designs for decorations and cardboard framing, it is now a fad for such invitations. There are many intricate designs to choose from and you can even submit a design of your own. They are very stylish yet they retain the elegant parlance in writing.
The last one is the do-it-yourself wheel card. Some websites now offer editing and templates if you choose to make one. It's just made of two cardboards or chipboards cut in a slightly different-sized circle with a plug or grommet in the center to make the wheel turn, once the peep box is in line with the title, it shows the details on that particular heading.
I am open for comments and suggestions. Feel free to share what you know if you have additional information on best wedding cards.
