Belly Bands for Wedding Invites
Belly bands are small strips of paper (or vellum) that are designed to go around the middle of a wedding invitation and keep everything held together nicely.
A belly band is the ultimate finishing touch to a wedding invitation.
When you think belly band, think: organization. That is their sole purpose.
It is also the piece that will make guests go, dannnnnng, this is gorgeous, or something of the sort, upon opening up your wedding invite. ;)
As you know with invitations, presentation is everything; belly bands are one of the pieces that serve a purpose and add to your overall style.
When guests open the outer envelope to reveal your invitation, it will be held together neatly and organized with the proper cards in order.
Belly bands are helpful to have when you want your invitations to be as presentable as possible upon delivery.
So, with all this talk about belly bands, where do you get them? How do you add belly bands to wedding invitations?
