Wedding Invitations set the tone for your entire event.
Many couples like the old world look of the wax seal on their wedding invitations, especially for weddings in New Orleans, where the history is such a prominent detail in the wedding theme. Your invitation sets your tone for your entire event, so if you want to make a big statement, a wax seal is a great detail to add. Unfortunately there are some negatives to using them. The first is that they aren’t a quick process. Each one takes about 15 seconds to do. The second is that they cost more to mail. Because the post office can’t send an envelope with a wax seal through the mail sorter machine, they have to hand-sort them. That additional effort could cost you up to a dollar or more per envelope, so keep that in mind when you’re making the choice to use or not to use a wax seal. If you decide the look is worth the time and expense, here is a short video on how to make the seal look like it was done by a pro!
