6 Ways to Personalize your Wedding Invitations & Stationery
Incorporating your personality, hobbies, and favorites into your wedding stationery is a wonderful way to infuse your unique story into every detail. Here are some creative ideas to help you personalize your wedding stationery:
Custom Venue Paintings & Illustrations:
Have a custom painting or illustration created of your venue or wedding location. These illustrations can be incorporated into your invitations, save-the-dates, or even on envelope liners and give your guests a glimpse of what to expect when they arrive on your wedding day!

If you both have a deep love for music, consider incorporating musical elements into your stationery. Design invitations in the shape of vinyl records or use guitar picks for your escort cards. You can also include a mixtape or playlist of your favorite songs with the RSVP cards.

You can also incorporate elements from your wedding location in your wedding stationery items. Use inspiration from your destination like specific flora and fauna from the area or add subtle touches like vintage stamps or illustrations of landmarks from your favorite destinations. You could even make your Save the Dates a die cut of the state!
If you're animal lovers, feature your furry friends in your wedding stationery and details. Include illustrations of your pets on your invitations, or day of details. Adding pets to your custom wedding crest is such a fun and unique way to include your fur babies and surprise your guests! You can also make a donation to an animal charity in lieu of favors and include a small note about it in your stationery.
