There are plenty of ways that you can add to your Wedding invitation or wedding invitation suite to make them pop for your guest. A wedding invitation, as well as a formal way to invite your guests, can help set the mood and theme of your wedding. We pulled together a few ways you could assemble your invitation and add that something little extra.
Ribbons are easy to source from any local craft and stationery store or you can even hand make some from tearing and trimming old (or new) fabric. If the material is frayed properly, this can add a very heritage look to your invitations. Ribbons can add a touch of color to your invitation that could indicate your wedding colors, what your bridesmaid gown’s colors will be and set the tone for your guest.
Feel free to discuss with the Paperlust team on which colour matches your invitation design perfectly. The following are some examples on how you can step up the way you present your wedding invitations.
Twine and tag
For a rustic look, get a customised matching tag with your initials or names, or guest names to intertwine with the twine (you can use your ribbon too if it’s thin enough) and wrap around your invite/invitation suite. This style is straightforward and easy to assemble whilst adding that extra touch of personalization to your wedding invitations.
Time to channel the inner florist in you! Take your time finding dried leaves and flowers with longer stems to add to your invitation. You could use a little glue or tape to hold the flower in place, or if you have access to wax seal that is also an option. Tip: Flattening and drying your flower beforehand helps the whole suite sit inside your envelope nicely.
You could also use herbs instead of flowers! Depending on which herb you use, they do leave a scent on your invitation and your guest will get a strong whiff when they open their envelopes. Herbs with strong scent that will hold together nicely once dried include: Rosemary, sage and thyme.
Vellum is a type of transparent paper that has been trending in the Wedding industry. It is used to add minimal layers to enhance your wedding suite. A simple vellum wrap or vellum belly band adds a luxe presentation and your guest will sure to have a memorable unwrapping experience. Vellum can also be used as an alternative to ribbon.
Dress your envelopes
Want something less finicky but still have that WOW factor? Try decorating your envelope instead. You can simply add envelopes liners (Paperlust envelope liners require some assembly) to give your invitation look a little boost and since liners are printed, the options are endless. You could go with a simple solid color to tie in your wedding theme, get a certain flower pattern printed, or get foil liners to make it sparkle! Tip: we find this works best accompanied by a minimal invitation.
Paperlust also offers envelope printing to put you at ease with the long list of names and addresses to write. With the massive range of fonts we have in our library, including the ones you used on your invites, we can match it anyway you want. And not to mention that we can also print cool graphics on your envelopes to make it even more exceptional. City skyline, greeneries, hand drawn image of your wedding location, you name it!
