Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog. Here is where I share wedding stationery & business branding tips, with the occasional personal posts about my life. Enjoy!
There are a TON of ways to have your wedding stationer make the dream wedding suite for you and make it “your own”! Contrary to popular belief, whether you go with custom or semi-custom stationery, either one will give you plenty of options.
Even though you are a little more limited with semi-customs, here is what most (or some) stationers will let you decide for either kind you decide:
Colors: Usually, you are able to change the color of fonts, lettering, paper, and embellishments to make your invitations more personalized to your wedding color palette.
Paper: You can either choose from metallic, flat, and textured for mats, pockets, belly bands, and envelopes. This is an easy way to match your style with little to no extra cost than the original paper and color choice.
Embellishments: Adding ribbon, wax seals, vellum, custom return address stamps, and more will set your invitations apart from others. This helps make it your own because it’s all about the unique components you want to showcase. Embellishments is one of my favorite pieces to add to invitations for couples because tying the pieces together with a paper belly band (although it is a beautiful and cost effective way), gives a much different look than if you tied it all together with silk ribbon, which will make couples feel like theirs is more personable to fit who they are.
With custom wedding stationery, couples do have a lot more freedom with the design itself because stationers (including ourselves) will work with couple from beginning to end with every little detail from what style of lettering (if applicable) to what florals they prefer (again, if applicable), to paper and embellishments like above. However, like mentioned before, with semi-custom stationery, even though it is still a great and an affordable option for smaller budgets, you are more limited to what you can change.
