Just because you didn’t build your wedding invitations from scratch doesn’t mean you can’t add your own DIY accents. In fact, we encourage it! DIY wedding invitations can become a HUGE undertaking, which is why adding your choice of DIY accents is a great way to showcase a little personality without dedicating hours and hours to the effort.
We’re showing you 5 different ways you can add DIY touches to a professionally printed invitation by using our Vintage Wedding Invitation in white. We hope this helps inspire you to find new and creative ways to enhance the look of your own vintage wedding invitations.
1. Let it shine!
We like the classy appeal of black and white so we used a black satin ribbon and tied it in a crisscross knot on the front of the invitation. The stick-on rhinestones are carefully placed to accentuate the vintage flourish design with a little bit of sparkle. Ribbon and stick-on rhinestones can be found at your local craft store.
2. Beautiful Display
All you need to achieve this look are peacock feathers and ribbon. We suggest choosing a ribbon color that matches one of the colors in the peacock feather for a truly coordinated look. Just lay the feather across the top of the invitation and tie the ribbon around the invite and feather ending with a French knot on the front.
3. Lacy Love
Wide lace ribbon adds an incredibly pretty accent with romantic appeal. Choose any style of lace ribbon you like and simply tie it around the invitation and finish with a loose knot on the front. You can cut the ribbon tails like we’ve shown here or leave the ribbon as is.
4. Glam it up!
A gold glitter bellyband with black satin ribbon becomes a glamorous embellishment reminisce of a more decadent, roaring 20s style (think Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio). The gold glitter band is wrapped front to back with a glue dot securing it in place on the back of the invitation. The black satin ribbon is wrapped back to front with a crisscross knot finishing the look.
5. Playing with watercolors.
We wanted to add a bit of color to the invitation and thought a few strokes of watercolor would be perfect! Choose whatever color you like but be sure to dilute the paint well so you get just a subtle touch of color. We suggest laying the invitation flat with the wording side down to avoid getting watercolor on the inside of the invitations. Let the invite air dry and then press them under something heavy, like a stack of books, to keep the invites nice and flat.
