COUTURE OPTIONS

The thing that makes CKV different is my ability to completely tailor your wedding suite to your personality and style and one of the best ways to do that is through some of the couture options described below. If you love vintage...ask about how we can use a wax seal in your suite. If you love all things modern...ask how we can incorporate hand applied foil or wire to your suite. Do you want your suite to be soft and romantic, we can add a hand dyed silk ribbon bow to hold it all together.

Ribbons

Ribbons can perform the same function as a belly band and can also be layered with the belly band for an added touch of elegance. I prefer small satin ribbon or soft hand dyed silk so as to not create a lot of bulk in your envelope. I can add a tag to your ribbon as well with your monogram or wedding date.

Wax Seals

Custom wax seals are so popular. On your envelope to seal it closed. On a belly band on your actual invitation...the design is completely created for you and you can keep your seal afterwards if you like!

MONOGRAMS

Monograms are time honored additions to wedding suites that are a great way to customize and bring a personal touch to your suite. They can range from traditional and regal to modern and minimal.

TWINE AND THREAD

Thread and twine or even wore are awesome and unique ways to add a unique element to your suite. Wrapping several times around has big impact and we can accent that with a tag or knot it!

HANDMADE PAPERS

I love sourcing unique papers that add a unique pattern or color combination to your invitations. Handmade papers can come from Italy, India and beyond! My favorite way to use them is on an envelope liner.

EDGE PAINTING

Edge painting is a subtle way to take advantage of your ultrathick paper and bring a little color to the sides of your invitation. It creates a luxe and refined look when added to your invitations. 


CRYSTALS.jpg

Crystals

I've been hand applying crystals for a long time but another fabulous option is crystal brooches applies to ribbons. They come in a variety of shapes and themes so any bride who likes a little something sparkle.

BELLY BANDS

Belly bands are paper bands either patterned or printed with your monogram, names, a quote, a crest, etc. that hold all of your suite elements together during mailing and the recipient slips it off when the open your envelope. This is an inexpensive way to add a special touch.
