6 Wedding Invitation Add-Ons That Make a Statement

If you decide to work with a professional wedding invitation designer for your wedding, great!  That means you’re off to a great start.  If your budget allows, there are several enhancements that can really make an extra statement to your invitation suite.  Here are six of my favorites…

1. Calligraphy Addressing

Addressing your envelopes with amazing handwritten calligraphy adds a personal touch to your invitations that make your guests super excited to open the envelope.

2. Vintage Stamp Curation // Custom Stamp Creation

Adding a carefully curated group of vintage stamps to match the theme and color scheme of your invitation suite adds an incredible touch that most people don’t think of doing.  Another great option, as an alternative to vintage stamps, is custom stamps.  Most of the East Avenue Creations wedding invitations include some sort of monogram or crest that is repeated on different pieces.  Custom stamps would be a great opportunity to use that monogram, or something similar.

3. Envelope Liners

To elevate your envelopes one step further past calligraphy addressing is to include liners on the inside.  A beautiful print, pattern, or design or any sort always looks incredible when your guests pop that envelope open.

Tying your invitations together with gorgeous hand-dyed silk, velvet, or classic stain is incredibly elegant and screams luxury.

5. Wax Seals

Wax seals are an amazing add on to not only your wedding stationery but can be included other places as well.  Think programs, menus, welcome bag tags/notes, favor tags, and so much more.

6. Vellum Wraps // Belly Bands

A way to keep your invitations secure through mailing, so they don’t move around within the envelope, is vellum wraps or belly bands.  Chose to either leave them blank or have them printed, they make the perfect addition to your set.

When to Begin Working on Your Wedding Invitations

When to Begin Working on Your Wedding Invitations

Alright, let’s talk timeline.  When to begin working on your wedding invitations?  That is the question of the day.

No shade, but I’ve seen some wedding timelines out there that…aren’t quite right.  As a professional makeup artist, I’ve run into this issue for years.  So many brides reach out to me three months prior to their wedding thinking it’s time to book makeup, because, that’s what the timeline on Pinterest (or so and so site) said.  When in reality, most brides book me for makeup a year, or even more, in advance.

Same goes for wedding invitations.  I’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries to begin thinking about/working on wedding stationery just a few months before the wedding date.  That is definitely not enough time, and I don’t want to turn anyone down!

Here’s a guideline from The Knot that I actually think is pretty accurate:

“Your save-the-dates should go out 8 to 10 months before the wedding.  It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks—or longer, depending how fancy you go—to print them.  While your save-the-dates don’t have to match your invites, ordering everything from one stationer can save you money and make the invitation process easier on you.  So start scouting stationers 9 to 11 months before the wedding.  Aim to order your invitations about 4 to 5 months out so they’re ready to mail 8 to 10 weeks before the wedding.  If you’re having a destination wedding or marrying over the holidays, send out your invites even earlier (12 weeks before the wedding).”

One edit I would make to that above quote is that it definitely takes more than just a few days to print, so keep that in mind.  As I list on my “How It Works” page:

  • In order for your Save the Dates to arrive to guests 8 months in advance, it’s best to get started 10 months before your wedding.
  • In order for your Invitations to arrive to guests 8 weeks in advance, it’s best to get started 5 months before your wedding.

So there ya have it!  Hopefully, that clears up any confusion you might have had regarding when to begin working on your wedding invitations.  Let me know if you have any questions!  And of course, reach out if you would like to start a project together!
