Alternatively, make a night out of crafting your invitations by gathering all the supplies to melt, pour, and stamp your seals. No matter which option you choose, make sure you have all your supplies on hand before you begin. Making wax seals is fun experience, so once you start you’ll want to settle in and enjoy the process.
Decorate Your Way
Wax seals are beautiful by themselves, but you don’t have to stop there. You can also add ribbon, dried flowers, and other gorgeous little touches to your invitations. If you choose to add embellishments with your wax seals, make sure you lay them as flat as possible on the page before making your seal. This will help the seal stick better and create a clean, neat look on the invitation. You can also experiment with colors to make an invitation that matches your wedding’s theme and color scheme. Don’t be afraid to sample colors and make a few test seals before you commit to the perfect choice.
