Wax seals are on trend for wedding invitations right now! The wonderful thing about these seals is how versatile they can be. Wax seals aren’t just for envelopes anymore, and in this post, I’m sharing unique ways to use wax seals in your wedding stationery.
Wax seals on envelopes
Putting a wax seal on your envelope is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about using a seal. This traditional approach is certainly gorgeous, but I would recommend putting the wax seal on your inner envelope, then placing it in a larger envelope for mailing. The raised seal could be damaged when it’s exposed to the post office sorting machines or come off while it’s jostled around in the mailing process.
I especially love the unique twist of using a vellum envelope paired with a wax seal as your inner envelope!
Wax seals on belly bands
Adding a wax seal to your belly band is such a great way to incorporate one in your invitation suite! The seal can be used to hold the belly band together and makes a great first impression when your guests open the envelope.
Wax seals on wedding invitations
A new trend I’m loving is putting a wax seal directly on your invitation! Whether it’s placed at the top by itself or placed to the side with a piece of ribbon, the wax seal is a special touch sure to create a unique invitation suite.
Wax seals on vellum wraps
A vellum folder is such an elegant way to wrap up your invitation suite – it keeps everything in place, and the semi-transparent vellum gives your guests a little peek of the enclosed invitation without revealing all the details. And what better way to close up the vellum wrap than by using a wax seal!
Wax seals with ribbon
Wrap your invitation suite up with a piece of silk ribbon or velvet and secure it with a wax seal for a stunning look!
Wedding Day Stationery
Don’t forget about your day of stationery! Wax seals make a great addition to your wedding day paper goods – add one to the top of your menu cards, or use numbered wax seals on your escort cards to indicate your guests’ assigned table number.
