When it comes to your wedding stationery and invitation suite, there’s actually a lot more to it than simply picking an invitation and envelope and mailing them out. Aside from picking your favorite wedding invitation design and ensuring all of the details are correct (and proofed!) there’s another element to consider — the accessories!
Just as you’re probably shopping for jewelry, a hair piece or shoes to go with your wedding gown, there are some elegant accessory options for your invitations, too.
And you’ve probably heard this a million times already in your wedding planning process, but it really is all in the details. Finishing touches make a big difference, so here are some of our favorite ways to accessories and elevate your wedding invitations, all via our favorite invitation website, Minted!
Belly bands serve two purposes – organizing all the elements of your invitation suite while keeping them together, and also adding an extra design element to your overall package. Available in tons of varieties including colored, textured, printed, monogrammed or foil, you can customize your belly band to match your suite or add a bold pop of color.
Whether you’re all about modern details or have a penchant for classic touches, you can’t go wrong with wax seals. There’s just something about them that make opening an invitation feel like a regal event. Thankfully, Minted has re-created the tradition and instead of actually melting wax on your treasured stationery suite, they have peel-and-stick options that are easy peasy. Just select the color seal and a design (to be etched into the wax) that you love, and voila!
Ribbon just makes everything prettier, doesn’t it? Consider adding a twist of ribbon to your suite for an unexpected addition of texture or color. Then, use the leftovers for wedding favors, bridal party décor, or whatever else you can think of!
Minted’s ribbon is made of high-quality materials in a range of colors and textures to complement your invitation suites, favors…you name it! The ribbon options come in 10-yard bundles, so order accordingly! (It’s always better to have extra, than not enough!)
Adding an envelope liner to your wedding invitation envelopes can take your invitation suite from beautiful to gorgeous with minimal effort. (We promise!) When customizing your suite, Minted offers twelve colors of envelopes to choose from, but if you really want to kick things up a notch, a coordinating envelope liner is the way to go.
Adhered right on to the top of the envelope, it’s the first thing your invitees will see when they open the envelope flap, and is sure to make an impression. Foil envelope liners are available in gold, silver or rose gold, and come pre-attached or you can opt for matching liners that coordinate with your suite, available as adhesive stickers.
