The Beauty Behind Envelopes

Envelopes come in many shapes, sizes, colors and textures. You can even choose to lick the envelope (some people actually enjoy the glue taste…eww), have a handy dandy sticker, or better yet a wax seal.

Choosing an envelope is where I like to begin my design process. I get so inspired by that folded piece of paper. Think about it…it’s your guest’s first impression of what your wedding will be like. You want your guests to receive your invitation and be excited to see the inside contents.

The envelope sets the stage for what is to come. It builds anticipation. Give me something shiny and I’m hooked! Give me an envelope liner and you may have to pick me up off of the ground! I hope everyone has this reaction. I realize I’m the biggest paper nerd you will ever come by, though!

Go Crazy with Your Wedding Theme

Who wouldn’t want to go to a magical themed wedding? I’m not going to lie. I absolutely love the most absurd wedding themes. It makes the wedding more personal and just plain fun.

The most popular wedding theme on our Pinterest board is our Harry Potter Wedding theme. Never in a million years would I have thought that my dorky obsession would become a popular wedding theme. I really want someone to do this theme for their wedding. Well, to tell the truth, I really want to design a wedding around this theme! Think about it…you could have the bridesmaids wear a Gryffindor scarf or the groomsmen wear a lightning bolt boutonniere. Oh the possibilities! You could make each guest put on the sorting hat to reaveal their seat assignment. Okay…so it may be a logistical nightmare, but it would still be fun!

The wackier the theme, the more fun it is to design. I love seeing the ideas that come out of my brides and grooms when they choose a theme that is unique to them. Don’t be afraid to go bold. Step out of the box. You only get one wedding (hopefully), so make the most of it!
