Now that you've settled into being engaged, and you've picked your wedding day (complete with mailing out save the dates), your next step is to send out your wedding invitations. Once you've picked the design and style that suits you, they need to be mailed out. Instead of using standard, white or singular colored envelopes, consider using printed ones. We here at Unmeasured Events are big fans of using the printed options, and for good reason. They stand out over regular everyday envelopes and will create excitement when your family and friends see them in the mail. We've got the best reasons why you should incorporate a printed envelope into your stationery routine, especially with something as important as a wedding invite. Even better? We've gathered 3 styles for you to choose from, so there's something for everyone.
If you're not sure where to start with printed envelopes, cute printed designs on the front and back of an envelope are always a great look. Everyone receives mail that looks like it could be just about anything with boring fonts typed on the front and we're more likely to ignore those. Adding in custom and colorful fonts can make your wedding invitations stand out. They are also super creative, producing a decorative look to just a regular envelope. Pick a color, font, style, even small design that you want and make something unique and personal to you. Printed designs look a lot more professional than handwritten options, even more than just stamping your guests names, and they are easier to complete. You can even have them done at a professional printer to save time. We recommend Prints of Love! They offer free 2-3 day shipping and will send you high quality products right to your door.

You can never go wrong with using your engagement photos in your stationery. It's always a nice touch and it makes your wedding invitations that much more memorable when they are opened. Imagine the excitement on your family and friends faces when they rip apart the backside to your invite, and they're greeted with a romantic photo of you and your significant other? We recommend choosing your favorite engagement photo and adding it to the inside. You'll only have so many opportunities to use them, so why not do so every chance you get? If this is a style you do want to go with, keep the rest of your envelopes minimal to allow the inside to be the main focus.

For those that want to keep the outside of their envelopes a little more minimalist but still want to add that little something extra, envelopes with a printed inside liner are where it's at. Pretty colorful designs are always a fun surprise when your guests open their invitation and it shows you took the time to make the details perfect. They'll also be more likely to save what's inside the envelopes instead of just putting them away. Watercolor prints never disappoint, and there's a design or style for any occasion. Planning a destination wedding and want to stay on theme? Pick an envelope liner with a drawing of the city you're getting married in. It's something that both you and invitees are bound to gush about and can jumpstart the excitement to be a part of your wedding day.
