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!
