Wedding planning couldn't be easier when it comes to wedding invitations, stationery and ways to elevate the overall look of your wedding in terms of presentation when dealing with a reputed wedding invites store. Shopping online for quality cards for the invites for the wedding, on the day stationery for both the ceremony and reception, as well as items for after the wedding too will be a breeze. Whilst the online invitations collection is vast and has many options in terms of colour, shape & sizing, sometimes you just want to or need to go the extra mile and add your own personal look. We've put together some DIY tips on how to dress up wedding invites and stationery!
One of the easiest ways to present your invites with a classy twist would be to use an invitation box, either in a paper quality or in clear PVC. The former style leaves a sense of mystery whereas the clear box lets you peak at the contents inside and offers excitement. You can include fancy tissue paper to add a layer of mystery, building up anticipation. Some even opt to add a ribbon band or even a customised printed belly band too. The decision is yours - a sample arrangement of the various styles you're thinking of having laid out side by side in its entirety will help you make a more informed decision.
Ribbons, buckles, specialty paper, cluster brooches and other embellishments are other great ways to spruce up a wedding invite. The choice of ribbon (type, colour, texture and size) and the placement matters. Put together a few samples in different styles and collaborations with buckles or brooches to assess which works better.
Bring specialty paper into the loop by playing with layers. Since there are many paper qualities available for the cards it's always a good idea to have samples sent to you to find the best type of specialty paper that will go with the colour, texture and look of the paper used in the invite. When you have selected layered wedding invitations, you can select the number of layers and how you plan on mixing the types of papers as well as whether you want to add a ribbon accessory in between a layer too.
If you love the idea of adding small details to your wedding in just about everything you plan on including, that is perfectly fine. Here are some ideas for you to do; - If you're adding cluster brooches to wedding details such as the invite, you can also incorporate it into the shoes, boutonnieres, bouquets and more.
- If you're having a night-time wedding ceremony, add ribbon and a sparkler to an order of service.
