We know you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover, and the same applies to wedding invitations. Never judge an invitation by its envelope! But, when the envelope is just so good — it’s okay to get excited for what’s inside. First impressions are everything, so we’re here to help you make your wedding invitation envelope pop and really set the scene for your big day before guests even open up the invitation. Here’s how you can make your wedding envelopes pop with the help of Minted

Bright or Bold Colors

The last thing you want is your invitation getting lost, or mixed into a sea of boring, standard old snail mail. So we say, bring on the color! Nothing catches someone’s attention like a beautiful bright or bold color. 

Minted offers colored envelopes in a range of attention-grabbing, moody colors including aubergine with white ink, stunning black with white ink, or a rich navy with white ink, for a small extra fee. We love the idea of using speckletone kraft paper envelopes as well (especially with the The Bold Type invitation suite) to ensure your envelope won’t be “lost” within the pile of mail.

All Over Script Fonts 

No boring, blank spaces here! For your wedding invitations, think of the outer envelope as your blank canvas and opt to use all the space when addressing the invites to your guests. Instead of small or standard, straight fonts, instead go for big, all-over script fonts that take up the majority of the face of the envelope!

We love how loopy and wide the “deliver to” is written on the envelopes in the Violet design suite by Kelly Schmidt. While the personal information is still small and clear to read (all mail carriers will appreciate this!) the wispy font certainly grabs our attention.

Another great option is the wide-width design of the wedding invitation envelopes within the Modern Ampersand suite by Jhudy.  The thin, calligraphy-like font fills the width of the envelope leaving nothing else to be desired. 

Wax Seals 

What’s not to love about a wax seal? They are classic, timeless and super exciting to see. There’s something about them that just makes you feel regal or royal. And why not make your guests feel extra special? With Minted, wax seals are easy! (No wax drips or melts here!)

Minted’s self-adhesive wax seals work more like elevated stickers. They are individually pressed with designs, monograms, and sentiments that are sure to give guests that feeling of excitement as they open their invitation.

Liners

While wedding planning, you’ve probably heard the phrase “it’s all in the details” about a thousand times. But, it’s so true! If you want your wedding invitation envelopes to pop but still be a bit more on the subtle side, add a printed liner! When your guest is opening the invite, it’s an unexpected way to show them that you’re focusing on every little detail that will make your day so special.
