How To: Frame a Wedding Invitation
Gone are the days where weddings are just a small ceremony followed by light hors d'oeuvres and champagne in a church basement. Each detail is carefully planned, pinned, and Instagrammed and the invitations are no exception. They're often small works of art themselves! So whether you're framing it for yourself or for a newlywed friend, a framed wedding invitation is a simple and beautiful way to capture a really special moment. Here's how to do it.
Depending on the type of invitation there are lots of different ways you can design the arrangement. It can be as simple as the invitation mounted with a white mat, to a more elaborate arrangement that includes all components of the stationery suite (invitation, envelope, reception cards, etc) .
If you're framing more than just the invitation we suggest float mounting to show off the edges of the paper. Here are a few examples to give you a better idea of what it looks like.
Once you've decided how you'd like to mat and mount your invitation you're ready to pick a frame. Our Newport and Richmond frames are great for classic style invites, Bali or Mandalay are perfect for something a little off the beaten path, and Mercer Slim or Irvine Slim work beautifully for a simple, modern look.
Oh, and the best part? You've already got the art! You were invited, after all.
Just send it to us, and we'll do the rest.
