Ellen Forney, invitation artist

Updated Sep 13 2019

Ellen Forney's wedding invitationsIf you're looking for incredibly bad-ass, one-of-a-kind wedding invitations, then holy fuck, you owe it to yourself to commission Seattle artist Ellen Forney.

Ellen is a balls-to-the-wall graphic artist whose awesome comics have appeared in The Stranger and the LA Weekly and a bazillion other publications. You may have seen her book, I Love Led Zepplin, at bookstores.

Anyway, Ellen does these custom wedding invites that were voted "Hippest Invitations" by Seattle Bride Magazine last year. And as she says, "Cool enough for you and your friends, and elegant enough for your great-aunt."

Custom work from an established artist isn't cheap — rates start at $300 for a portrait and go up from there. But get this: Offbeat Brides get a 5% discount! Just let Ellen know you found her here.

So, if your invitations are going to be one of your big ticket items (and you want to support an awesome independent artist), Ellen should definitely be at the top of your list. Check her out.

  1. Ellen Forney rocks my world in more ways than I can count. It'd be an honor to have Ellen do my wedding invitations. That is, if I were getting married. Which I'm not.
