Customize Your Wedding Invitations and Stationery with a Wedding Venue Painting


September 1, 2023

If you’re looking for a unique way to customize your wedding invitations, consider using a watercolor painting of your wedding venue! This option is a great way to personalize any of our semi-custom invitation collections. This is especially true when used on an envelope liner, too. Ashley has an existing list of North Carolina wedding venues. However, the list doesn’t stop there. There are a few other venues from the East to West Coast, and even to Italy! Additionally, if we’ve already painted your venue, we can reuse the existing watercolor illustration at no additional cost. If you’d like to commission a new wedding venue painting, we’ve got you! As a bonus, you’ll get the original 8×10 painting as a special keepsake as well. How fun is that?!

Utilizing Your Wedding Venue Painting Throughout Your Wedding Day

Using a wedding venue painting on your invitations is like a sneak peek for your guests. It’s a fun way to give guests a foreshadowing of how beautiful your wedding will be. The painting can be the highlight of the invitation suite and printed on the main invitation. In addition to this you can also use it on the ceremony program, save the date, or even on your reception stationery!

These custom illustrations are meant to capture the beauty and aesthetic of your unique wedding location. Whether you’re getting married at a historic chapel, a modern barn, a private family estate or any type of venue in between, we’d love the chance to make it shine in your paper goods.

Destination wedding? No problem! Using a watercolor painting of your location will leave guests delighted and will make for a special keepsake and souvenir. This Highlands NC wedding invitation suite featured the beautiful mountains of North Carolina and Old Edwards Inn. Naturally, this was stunning for a holiday winter wedding.

If you’re still searching for the perfect wedding invitation suite, fear not. We’ve got you covered with a variety of styles in the semi-custom collections!

Wedding Day Details Aside From the Invitation Suite

Let’s not forget all the fun day-of details that can feature your wedding venue painting! We’ve seen clients use their art on guest books, welcome signs, dinner menus, koozies, and so much more. The sky is the limit!
