You’ve picked out the invitations, decided on folios and boxes, but what thought have you given to the envelopes you’ll be using.
Most brides and grooms opt for paper envelopes. Although some couples make quick work of selecting the envelopes by choosing “whatever,” finding the right envelope is about far more than the weight or texture of your envelope paper.
True luxury wedding invitation envelopes create romance.
These extraordinary envelopes may be crafted in cardstock, but many are covered in fine Dupioni silk that is sensual to the touch. You’ll find invitation envelopes that include rhinestone of pearl clasps, magnet closure or buttons that fast the envelope and protect the contents from falling out.
What you may not realize is that you can create bespoke luxury wedding invitation envelopes that suggests romance.
The first step in designing luxury wedding invitation envelopes is to select the size, making sure it is large enough to hold the inserts you have ordered.
Next, what’s your color preference? Some brides insist on traditional white, ivory or ecru, but other brides opt for bold and sassy colors that reveal the theme of the wedding celebration. Duping silk lends itself well to dyeing, and you’ll love the rich colors that emerge in the natural silk.
The task of picking out elegance and sophistication in these envelopes lies in selecting the brooch or clasp that best reflect your personality and style. Choose fleur-de-lis, starbursts, whimsical pieces, or buttons to finish the envelope.
For real romance, add a slash of contrasting satin ribbon and exquisite lace trim matching the color of the silk along the edge of the envelope. The open work tatting in the lace allows the color beneath to peek through, and the elaborate result will create the romance you’re looking for.
Winter weddings call for romantic velvet, especially if the wedding will take place in a colder climate. The romance of this luxury fabric is seen in the Red Couture Velvet Invitation with Luxury Pearl and Crystal Crown Brooch. This padded piece enfolds your wedding inserts and clasps shut with a magnet. On the outside lies a magnificent crown shaped brooch. The result is a top-end envelope that exudes romance.
If velvet is not your style, but you still want something unique, other personalization for your luxury wedding invitation envelopes is possible. Ask your manufacturer for a monogram or printed graphic on the outside of the envelope.
Together you can create romance with your luxury wedding invitation envelopes.
