Yes, you need some paper elements otherwise it becomes a little tricky to read, but making one sheet – perhaps your wedding announcement sheet – translucent will make your invite really stand out and feel extra special.

2. Wax Seal

Lords and ladies would seal their envelopes with a drop of wax pressed usually with a ring to show who it came from and to ensure no one opened it in transit and read the secrets within. Make your wedding invites extra special by adding this ancient seal to all your envelopes!

3. Tied with a Ribbon

It is of course the finishing detail to make your wedding invitations perfect! We recommend thick ribbon and a colour that ties in with your colour scheme. This is the ideal way to hint at what your colour scheme will be on the big day.

4. Gold Foil

Being extra ties hand in hand with decorating your invitations with gold. Embossing with a gold foil gives such a great effect and just shows that you’ve gone the extra mile to make that first bit of wedding celebrations extra special. Don’t overdo it! Just a subtle touch of gold embossed.
