Ceramics Studio (or stained glass, knitting, or some other craft where the guests all take home their own handmade “souvenir”)
If you or the bride are into some interesting hobby, why not have the party at a studio? From there, guests can go eat in a local restaurant and open presents there. The object they create becomes their party favor. It could convert a lot more people to a craft or hobby your bride and you already enjoy together.
If you are renting a place that commonly holds parties, they may provide invitations for you. Otherwise, why not send a colorful plastic paintbrush skewered through the front of an invitation shaped like an artist's palette.
