These 3D Arcade Wedding Invitations Are Completely Awesome

3D Arcade Wedding Invitation | William Flegal | The Knot Blog William Flegal

When it comes to invitations setting the stage for a wedding, Kathleen and Steve earned the high score. The couple sent out invitations that can be folded to resemble retro arcade machine — perfect for their bar-arcade venue!

The 3D invitations, created by graphic designer William Flegal, were inspired by the old-school games in the reception venue, Headquarters Beercade in Chicago. ­He seamlessly incorporated important wedding details with an outer space­­­-inspired design to match the venue’s 1980s style.

The invitations were printed on thick card stock mailed out flat — and the couple decided not to include assembly instructions. “We loved that our guests would get to discover the final piece as they messed around with it,” Kathleen says. She did add that a handful of her guests couldn’t piece it all together and gave up!

And as you could imagine, with invites like these, she and Steven have more out-of-the-box surprises planned for their wedding day. We’ll keep you updated — until then, check out their one-of-a-kind, pop-up invitations below.

The invitations were mailed out flat.

Guests had to do a bit of folding…

…and then slide the tabs into place.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
