When it comes to making your wedding invitations look luxurious, there are several visual elements to consider. Here are some tips to make your invitations stand out using sight:

  1. Choose High-Quality Papers & Cardstock: Select a high-quality paper or cardstock with a luxurious finish that will elevate the look and feel of your invitation. Thick paper stock with a soft touch finish, or a metallic or pearlized finish can add a touch of elegance.

  2. Use Unique Typography: Typography plays an important role in the overall aesthetic of your wedding invitation. Select a font that reflects your wedding style, and choose a font colour that pops against the background. Consider using custom calligraphy or letterpress printing for a truly luxurious look.

  3. Incorporate Embellishments: Embellishments like foil stamping, laser cutting, and embossing can add depth and texture to your wedding invitation.  Little details like the addition of handmade paper roses or diamante charms create a luxurious feel and give your guests a sense of the elegance they can expect at your wedding. 

  4. Present your luxury wedding invitations in a box. Remember the feeling you got when someone handed you a gift in a box and you couldn't wait to see what was inside? Boxes not only protect your invites but make them look amazing too and add to the air of excitement for your big day.

Sound is not typically associated with wedding invitations, but incorporating it can make your invitation feel unique and luxurious. Here are some ways to use sound to make your wedding invitation stand out:

  1. Record a Personalised Message: Consider recording a personalised message for your guests that they can listen to when they open the invitation. This could be a message from the couple, a snippet of your favourite song, or even the sound of waves crashing if you're having a beach wedding.

  2. Include a QR Code: You can also include a QR code on your invitation that leads guests to a special website or playlist with songs that reflect the theme of your wedding. This creates a unique experience for guests and adds an element of luxury to your invitation.

  3. Use Unique Sound Packaging: Choose an envelope that makes a sound when opened, such as a metallic foil-lined envelope that rustles or a box with a hinge that creates a satisfying creak. These small details add a tactile experience to your invitation and make it feel more luxurious.



While it might seem unusual to incorporate taste into your wedding invitations, it can be a creative and unexpected way to add a touch of luxury. Here are some ways to use taste to make your wedding invitation stand out:

  1. Include Edible Elements: Consider including a small treat or edible element in your invitation, such as a chocolate truffle, some handmade fudge or a macaron. This adds a luxurious touch and gives guests a little taste of what's to come at your wedding.

  2. Enclose a Drink: Consider enclosing a bottle of your favourite wine or champagne with your invitation, so guests can have a small taste of what's to come at your wedding reception.

By incorporating taste into your wedding invitation, you can create a memorable experience that your guests won't soon forget. Just be sure to keep any edible elements small and non-messy, so your guests don't end up with stained or sticky invitations.



Incorporating tactile elements into your wedding invitation can create a luxurious experience that engages your guests' sense of touch. Here are some ways to use touch to make your wedding invitation stand out:

  1. Select a Textured Paper: Choosing a paper with a unique texture, such as velvet or linen, adds a tactile element to your invitation. Guests will be drawn to the feel of the paper and the added dimension it provides.

  2. Add Embossing or Letterpress: Using letterpress or embossing techniques with printing creates a raised texture on the paper, which makes the invitation feel more luxurious and high-end.

  3. Include a Fabric or Ribbon: Incorporating a ribbon or a piece of fabric into your invitation adds a tactile element and gives guests something to touch and feel. You could use a silk ribbon or a piece of lace to create a luxurious touch. How about wrapping your invite in a layer of silk?

  4. Using a combination of different layers of different textured papers and card, an embossed printed finish, a soft touch ribbon and a wrap all helps to build on the guests luxury wedding invitation experience.

By incorporating tactile elements into your wedding invitation, you create a more interactive experience for your guests that engages their sense of touch. The added dimension and texture will make your invitation feel more high-end and luxurious.



Incorporating scent into your wedding invitations is a subtle but effective way to create a luxurious experience for your guests. Here are some ways to use smell to make your wedding invitation stand out:

  1. Add a Scented Accent: Consider adding a small sachet or a scented wax seal to your invitation. This gives guests a hint of the fragrance you've chosen and creates a sensory experience that makes your invitation feel more luxurious.

  2. Create a Custom Fragrance: Work with a perfumer to create a custom fragrance that reflects your wedding theme and use it on your invitation tissue paper wrap. This is a more high-end option, but it creates a truly unique and memorable experience for your guests.


By incorporating these five senses into your wedding invitation, you create an immersive and luxurious experience that sets the tone for your wedding day. By appealing to sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, you're able to excite every one of your guests' senses and create a memorable experience they won't ever forget.
