From the gown to the flowers and cake, so much goes into wedding planning. Don’t overlook the opportunity your invitations offer to further reflect and represent your unique and personalized wedding style. For those looking to enhance your invites, we have gathered our favorite assortment of affordable and distinct ways to dress up your wedding invitations.
1. Envelope Liner
Want to add the wow factor? Look no further than envelope liners. Guests will literally get their first glimpse of your wedding aesthetic when they carefully open your invitation envelope and take a peek inside at your pretty liner. Envelope liners are a fun way to add pattern, texture, color, or your monogram to your invitations.
Whether handwritten or digitized, wedding invitations featuring calligraphy are endlessly chic. If your wedding is formal or even less traditional, calligraphy is the perfect way to add soft graceful flourishes to your invitations and envelope addressing. Not to mention your place cards, escort cards and day-of signage. If you want the elegant look and feel of calligraphy without the cost associated with this time-consuming and high specialized task, consider calligraphy in the form of printed typography. It’s just like the real thing for a fraction of the cost.
3. Wax Seals
Inspired by old-world elegance, wax seals are one of our favorite wedding invitation adornments. Wax seals are effortlessly romantic and available in an array of colors so you can select one that perfectly complements your invitation suite. The wax stamp can feature your first name initials, last name initials, or a personalized symbol that is special to you.
4. Silk Ribbon
Wedding invitations delicately wrapped with hand-tied silk ribbons offer a soft organic touch. Add this simple yet rich embellishment to your invitations for added depth and texture. Beautiful silk ribbons and bows are a unique finishing touch your guests are sure to notice.
Take your wedding stationery up a notch with individualized wedding invitation postage. Personalized postage offers complete originality with custom designs created to reflect your wedding invitation style. You can opt for a specialized motif or monogram featured in your desired color or font. These one-of-a-kind stamps are a special touch that will tie your entire wedding invitation suite together.
