How to Choose the Right Paper for Your Wedding Invitations

May 16, 2018

Through every step of the invitation process, we want our brides to feel educated, empowered, and confident in their role as decision maker. That’s why we want to talk to you today about the very foundation of wedding stationery – paper! Did you know that choosing the right paper for your wedding invitations can be just as important as finding the perfect design? Before you shop for your dream suite, take a minute to learn about our five most popular paper options so you can be a savvy stationer too!


1. Matte





Matte cardstock is the gold standard of wedding invitations. Professional and simple, matte paper comprises 85% of our orders and always prints colors in their truest form. The best part? It’s also the most affordable option!


2. Linen





Linen paper contains very subtle crosshairs that can provide a gorgeous touch of texture on an elegant suite. The light and airy nature of linen paper nicely complements spring and summer weddings, but a nice ivory linen is a great choice year-round.


3. Cotton





Any deckle lovers out there? Cotton paper is used to create those romantic torn edges that seem to be everywhere right now. Although it is one of the pricier choices, the look and feel of a cotton suite simply can’t be replicated. It’s truly one of a kind!


4. Kraft




With an ultra-natural look, Kraft paper is an excellent choice for rustic and outdoor weddings. Kraft paper tends to pair best with more playful and casual designs, so this option is for the bride who wants to mix things up!


5. Vellum





Vellum is the new black. With a major surge in popularity over the past year, we’re seeing a huge demand for vellum paper! Because vellum is extremely lightweight, it is typically paired with a heavier matte cardstock paper.


These five selections may be our most popular, but there are hundreds of paper choices available to our brides! From glitter envelopes to metallic foils, woodgrain cardstock to velvet belly bands, if you can dream it – we can find it. Need help deciding which paper is perfect for your wedding? Let us know! We’d love to offer our professional opinion.
