- Placing the ribbon around the corners: this ribbon will need to be slender and should complement the colours on the existing invitation. You can simply wrap the ribbon around the two opposite corners in order to give it that stylish edge. Once this has been done, you can use any extra pieces to create a bow on top of the upper corner.
- Bow on the top: Placing a bow straight across the top of the invitation is simple to do. Cut two slits at the top of the invitation at the centre. Choose your ribbon colour (again, the ribbon needs to be a slender one) and thread the ribbon through the two slits to make a bow. It's as simple as that.
- Tied together: some people refer to getting married as "tying the knot". You can play with this idea by tying two different, thin ribbons together in a knot. Pick two colours that complement 'his and hers' choices as well as the invitation colour.
- Ribbon band: if you are not the most creative of people, take the simple yet elegant route. Find a thick ribbon and place it around the centre of the invitation. You can then tie this ribbon into a bow in order to add that extra touch.
