If you’re looking to include a bit of glam in your wedding-invitation suite, we highly suggest utilizing foil. It’s no wonder it has become a popular staple for stationery pieces, as it’s a detail that can easily be dressed up and applied in dramatic, eye-catching ways, or conversely, used in understated, sophisticated styles. 

Consider foil printing for even the most delicate handmade pieces with completely customized details for your foil wedding invite, and later, change up the style a bit and send thank-you cards in a thick stock with an elegant gold-foil typeface. By personalizing your stationery for each pre- and post-wedding celebration, while still carrying over the metallic accent throughout – especially if that same tone is used as part of your décor color palette, your stationery-design concept will flow seamlessly. 

Some of our favorite stationers shared some of their special designs to help inspire brides and grooms for the invitations for their very own upcoming celebrations. Grecia León of The Native Lion was guided by the vineyard locale of her clients’ summer nuptials, while Lisa Zachery of Papered Wonders was asked to focus on the couple’s faith as she designed a custom die-cut save the date for their holiday vow exchange. 

Peruse the foil wedding invitation suites below to be inspired by each of these talented designers, so that you can dream up your perfect invitation, save the date, and more!
