When it comes to wedding invitations, it’s the little details that make all the difference. By incorporating thoughtful embellishments, you can elevate your invitations from beautiful to truly breathtaking. In this guide, I will explore a variety of fine art embellishments, from wax seals and ribbons to envelope liners and vintage stamps. Read how these small details can enhance the elegance of your wedding stationery.
Has anyone been watching Queen Charlotte? In one episode, she is seen sealing her letter to King George with a wax seal. Wax seals have truly stood the test of time, adding a touch of timeless charm to any invitation. With their versatility, they can be customized to match your aesthetic or feature monograms for a personal touch. Whether they are used to seal your envelope or add a three-dimensional design element to your invitation card, wax seals create a truly unique and elegant invitation.
Add a touch of luxury and sophistication with ribbon embellishments while also serving as a practical piece of your suite. Much like a traditional paper bellyband, a ribbon contains all the cards within an envelope neatly. Coming in a variety of colors, thicknesses, and textures, the ribbon can be the perfect addition to your wedding suite.
Make a memorable first impression by incorporating envelope liners. Choose from a wide range of liner designs to complement your invitation suite and surprise your guests with a delightful unboxing experience. While it may seem like a tedious process, my clients are pleased to find out their liners come mounted to the envelopes, even if they opt out of complete assembly!
A vellum wrap keeps all of your cards organized while not taking away from the gorgeous invitation design. The translucent paper gives your guests a sneak peek into the suite while also giving a polished finish! These translucent overlays can add a soft touch to your invitations and beautifully showcase your chosen design elements. There are a variety of different vellum styles, such as translucent or printed, that we will find a perfect match for your wedding suite.
You have spent all this time designing the perfect wedding suite and now it is time to put on the dreaded USPS stamps. If you don’t want to be held to the designs offered at the post office, vintage stamps are a great way to go! Infuse nostalgia and uniqueness into your wedding invitations. By working with a stamp curator, we find the perfect postage set to not only reach the amount of postage needed but add a touch of whimsy and a personalized feel to your envelopes to complement the suite’s design. Explore different ways to incorporate vintage stamps into your invitation suite and add a charming finishing touch.
Frame your invitations with elegance by using an invitation mat. These mats not only provide a polished look but also create a focal point for your design. This will give your invitation dimension and an added pop of color. Not to mention, a more luxurious, double-thick feel!
Your wedding invitations serve as a reflection of your unique love story and set the tone for your special day. By incorporating these invitation embellishments – wax seals, ribbons, envelope liners, vellum wraps, vintage stamps, and invitation mats – you can transform your invitations into exquisite works of art. The journey to creating an enchanting invitation suite starts with these embellishments, guiding you toward the elegant and captivating wedding day you’ve always dreamed of.
