For the music-loving couple, this is an invitation that will certainly set the tone for your wedding day. The invitation details are printed directly onto the record, which is displayed in a square envelope. You don’t even need actual vinyl for these invitations (although, that would be really cool!), you can simply use some great cardstock paper instead.
