For those of you that have used wax seals, is it worth the work? I’m thinking about putting them on our actual invitation. I have the martha stewart eyelet invitations and I’m thinking about putting a monogrammed wax seal at the top, possibly on top of ribbon. I want to add some more dimension to my invitation and I haven’t found a rubber stamp I like that I would emboss. Also, I’m having a December wedding and I think the wax seals would make the eyelet invitations more luxurious and more fit for a winter wedding.

I use wax seals for all of my correspondance, and I find it to be completely worth the effort- I’ll be using them on my invites also! But it depends on whether or not you mean the pre-made wax seals, or the actual melting of wax stick on the paper followed by the seal (that’s how I do it, old school hah). I’m not sure if you could put ribbon under either one and guarantee a good seal though…if it was the melted wax variety, it might have to be an an awfully large amount of melted wax.

Theyre gorgeous, but I have to warn you to be prepared for extra postage. Because they create a bump in teh envelope, they cannot be run through a amchine and often times (not all) require hand cancelling to mail out. As an alternative to using them on the invites, we are using them on our programs
