There are so many ways you can accessorise your various wedding elements with things that glitter and shimmer, but what about your DIY wedding invitations, stationery for the invitations package as well as those to be used during the wedding too. You could easily add some marvellous accents that are creative for a memorable look. Here are some ideas we came up that may just be ideal for your DIY wedding.
First of all, there are many types of glittered speciality paper available for handmade weddings. When you are choosing to DIY, consider which design or pattern, or even quality and colours of glittered speciality paper suits your wedding vision the best, and then take it from there. In terms of colour, you get gold and silver being the likely choices, as well as charcoal, white (with silver), and blue to name a few. You also get a choice of design and pattern, from the standard stripes to flourishes and swirls, paisley and intricate lace like designs. Take your pick and make your DIY wedding invitations and stationery one to remember.
Now, when you purchase glittered speciality paper, there are various ways you can use it. Basically, it comes down to your creativity and vision. But here are some of our ideas.
The great thing about glitter paper is that you can easily DIY it. It can be used as a backdrop, a layer or separator between two layers for definition, or even a border. It doesn’t always have to be straight or square in shape, you can add dimension to it simply with a scissor and a guide. If you wanted to feature a brooch in the centre of your DIY wedding invitation or even your order of service card, you could fix it on a square, circle or scalloped base.
Another way to do it up would be to create a sense of pop between layers of normal paper or card stock so that there’s an element of excitement and surprise in your DIY wedding stationery. It’s the same with borders; however they too need not be straight edged. Consider a flourished or scalloped design and make things interesting.
With glittered speciality paper, you can easily add a sense of oomph to your DIY stationery creations.
