In a world where wedding invitations can feel like an afterthought (they do ultimately end up in the garbage, but semantics), some couples choose to invest in a design that speaks to their unique style. These custom invitations can make a powerful first impression on guests and serve as a keepsake for years to come.
While most couples will go with digital printing, there are a variety of other options that can give your wedding suite an extra special look. Consider adding gold foil, acrylic invitations, or letterpress details to your design. These extra touches are not only beautiful but also more luxurious and eco-friendly than standard invites.
Another popular option is to add a touch of glamour with embellishments like silk ribbons or wax seals. Often, these are added on the main invitation but can be included on other items as well. For example, you may want to include a luxe ribbon on your RSVP card to request that your guests respond by a certain date or provide dietary restrictions.
Adding an element of luxury can increase the cost, but it is an easy way to differentiate your stationery and create a more memorable experience for your guests. Whether you opt for a shaped invite, rounded edges, or an embossed deboss, it will add to the overall weight of your suite and could require additional postage. If you’re not sure how much to spend, try taking a fully stuffed invite to your local post office to weigh it and get an accurate idea of what type of stamps you’ll need for your invitation bundle.
