VELLUM WEDDING INVITATIONS

Vellum is a gorgeous option to consider for your custom wedding stationery. Vellum is a beautiful translucent stock which gives a delicate, soft feel to your wedding invitations and stationery. I love working with different opacities within stationery and vellum is perfect for this. Layered over coloured card, the see-through quality allows it to blend seamlessly.


There are many options for layering vellum over coloured, painted or textured card backgrounds for an elegant finish to wedding stationery. I have a curated collection of wedding stationery designs on my website which can all be fully customised to suit the style and colour palette of your big day so head over there to be inspired. Otherwise, I’ve included some recent vellum examples below!

For a modern and contemporary style, the wedding invitation from The Georgia Stationery Collection uses a vellum bellyband to secure the invitation together. The vellum bellyband is then personalised with each guest’s name.

Foil Vellum Wedding Invitations

Vellum can also be used with one of my favourite luxury finishing touches…. foil! The foil provides a gorgeous mirror finish on wedding stationery and looks so elegant used with modern calligraphy. The Ali Stationery Collection, pairs vellum with foil by layering vellum over a pale green watercolour background.

I adore this wedding invitation which combines layers of gold foiled vellum with neutral tones for a stunning contemporary look. This stationery suite was based on The Emma Stationery Collection and demonstrates how a stationery collection can be customised to another colour.

Silver foil is often a metallic which is overlooked but it sparkles against any colour it’s printed on such as on this vellum layered over a navy-blue watercolour background.

I love these escort cards, perfect for an alternative to a traditional table plan, which all use a vellum overlay over on the handmade hand torn deckle edge paper from The Deckle Stationery Collection.

Save the date cards are a lovely way to first introduce vellum once you’ve decided on the colour palette of your wedding day, to create consistency across your personalised wedding stationery.
