There’s a lot to consider when it comes to your wedding invitation suite, from the color and font choices to the way the cards are grouped and the embellishments like wax seals, belly bands, and vellum overlays. Ultimately it’s up to you as the couple what works best for your wedding and budget, but when it comes to customization, working with a professional designer is always the right choice.
With a little bit of research, you can find templates that can be used to design custom invitations online, or you can work with a local print shop that specializes in stationery. Having a professional help with the design process will ensure your design fits your vision and that all of the pieces are matched up correctly, ensuring they will open easily and make it to your guests without any damage. They can also help you choose the perfect paper, trim, and embellishments to bring your design to life and make a memorable first impression.
For a premium look that carries through to your day of paper goods, adding an embellishment such as a bevel cut will add an extra touch of luxury to your invitations. Another popular option is dip dye, which is exactly what it sounds like- your paper is dipped into a dye bath to create an ombre effect on the card. The resulting color will be unique to your event and can be a great way to communicate your theme or set the tone for your big day. Etemply
