Gorgeous Wedding Invitations with Wax Seals
If there's one thing that takes a wedding invitation to the next level, it's a wax seal. There's something so elegant, charming, and generally old-world-inspired about the adornment. (Plus, it makes it clear that you've put thought into your stationery suite's design.) To illustrate our points, we've rounded up a few of our favorite wedding invitations with wax seals. The examples range from modern to traditional, but each and every one is undeniably attractive.
These paper goods prove that there are multiple ways of using wax seals on your wedding invitations. Between the color, design, and placement options, wax seals truly give you the perfect opportunity to personalize your suite. Maybe you coordinate the shade of your seal with the rest of your wedding's color palette. Or maybe, you get a custom wax seal made displaying your monogram, crest, or another motif that means something to you and your bride or groom. Once you decide on what your wax seals will look like, it's time to figure out where you'll put them. An obvious choice is centered on the outside of each envelope to close the invitations, but as you'll see ahead, the possibilities extend beyond the emblems' classic use.
This unique watercolor wedding invitation by Phka—which featured a Miidear wax seal with the couple's initials—is just one of the many gorgeous ideas we've included.
