How To Frame a Wedding Invitation

Gone are the days where weddings are just a small ceremony followed by light hors d'oeuvres and champagne in a church basement. Today, each detail is carefully planned, pinned, and Instagrammed - and the invitations are no exception. They're often small works of art themselves. So whether you're framing it for yourself or a newlywed friend, a framed wedding invitation is a simple and beautiful way to capture a really special moment. Here's how to do it.



Depending on the type of invitation there are lots of different ways you can design the arrangement. It can be as simple as the invitation mounted with a white mat, to a more elaborate arrangement that includes all components of the stationery suite (invitation, envelope, reception cards, etc).



The key to perfectly framed wedding invitation is float mounting - that means securing the invitation to a piece of foam core that lifts in slightly above the mat, displaying all those lovely edges and creating dynamic shadows. Beyond float mounting, the frame design should take its cues from the invitation itself. 



Here's four ways to frame a wedding invitation.

For colorful, complex invitations like this one, we suggest keeping the frame simple to let the invite really shine. Clean-cut poster frames in black or white (check out our black Mercer Slim or white Irvine Slim frames) make balance the invite and the frame for a polished final piece that you can style like art in your home.
