Put your fingerprints on the wedding invitations

Create literally unique wedding invitations by using your and your partner's fingerprints. Not too many ways to make these more personal! This is a also great DIY idea, as it can be a fun experience for you and your groom-to-be to craft together and get covered in ink (which may warrant a bath together afterwards)!
