Ideas needed for my wedding invites and favours!!

As some of you know, I'm getting married in September at a zoo. I'm cat mad but I'm having trouble coming up with ideas for invites and favours. I want to make and do these myself.

My sister had an idea for the invites, a leopard print ribbon down the crease of the card and maybe paw prints on the front. I am not creative in that way at all so I have no clue what to do.

I also want to do some different party favours. I may do biscuits but I also liked the idea of party bags but that will be expensive. I've found some small linen style bags which I could put sweets in (love hearts) etc but that seems a bit boring to me.

The colour theme is pink and black.

Is there anyone creative out there that can lend me some of their ideas, or have you been to a wedding which had some cool, unusual stuff??

PLEASE HELP! [-o<

Hi Whoopsie,

You could go for pink and black jelly beans for your favors? or some other cool old fashioned sweet. My cousin had rock with their names in it for their wedding. http://www.aquarterof.co.uk has some ideas.

In regards to the invite, not really sure what you could do, not that artistic to be honest.

Perhaps on the wedding invites you could have a photo of a black and white cat? I know thats not pink, but still :P

OMG!! That website is amazing. I've just seen some sweets that I haven't seen for years! Roll on pay day.

I like the pink and black coloured sweets. Some liqourice allsorts are pink and black too, maybe I could use those too.

Thanks Skarlet.

Yeh that would be cool, did think of those, but wasn't sure you could just buy pink and black ones. Glad it was helpful. :D
