5 Ways to Customize Off-The-Shelf Wedding Invitations

February 17th, 2017

One of the biggest challenges of our wedding planning process was getting our invitations made and out the door. For some couples, printed details might be the least of their worries (these days it’s not uncommon forgo tradition and send out a digital invitation altogether) but for us (ehem, for me), these elements were a big focus.

I set my sights on some pretty aspirational designs — cause how gorgeous is something like this? — but in the end, decided that an entirely custom wedding invitation wasn’t the best use of my budget. So, I did the next best thing, and found a more moderately priced invitation that I loved, then dreamed up a few clever ways to elevate the design. I must have done something right, because since our wedding story went live, I’ve received countless inquiries from readers asking for more information. It’s a few months overdue, but finally, I’m excited to share with you all the few resources and tricks of the trade I used to bring my wedding invitation visions to life…

    Beautiful! I love the idea!

  2. Meagan says:

    Thank you so much for sharing! I love the idea of using the prints from Spoonflower as envelope liners. How many envelopes were you able to complete using a single roll?

  3. Sofia Bakir says:

    I love the idea of lining and wax seals! The wax seals are great because you can get it in your main wedding color and use your initials! And then you can use it again for the “thank yous” to tie it all together.

    xo, Sofia

  4. I couldn’t help but choose for each recipient the liner that I thought they would appreciate most.

  5. KW says:

    So chic! How did you cut and glue the liners within the envelopes?

  6. Danielle Esparza says:

    Very pretty. Is that a custom designed wax seal or did you select it from the website in your link? Thank you!

  7. Bri B says:

    So so so gorgeous! The Etsy link to the floral paper seems to be broken – any chance you can share?

      Yes, I am in love with the Still Life Floral Paper from Etsy and cannot find it anywhere. Can you please share?
