DIY Wedding Invitation Tips

Once you have decided on a date and picked the venue for your wedding, you are ready to begin the adventure of choosing your invitations. Your wedding invitations are incredibly important, because they are the first glimpse of your wedding that your guests will cast their eyes on. You want your invitations to match the style and theme of your wedding, but you also want to stay on a specific budget.

The best way to get exactly what you want at a price that you can afford is to make your own wedding invitations. This includes the entire process of designing your invitations, which may seem overwhelming at first. However, you will be able to personalize your wedding invitations and create the ideal style to match the type of couple that you and your groom make. Be creative and try to stay on a schedule to ensure that your invitations are done in time.

What Materials Will You Need?

The materials that you need depend on the type of invitations that you chose to create, but there is a guide that you can follow. Here are a few items that are must-have for any DIY wedding invitation project:

  • Cardstock
  • Bar Envelopes
  • Color Coordinated Paper
  • Flat Cards
  • Letter Paper
  • Envelopes
  • Decorations (stickers, ribbons and glitter)

The actual amount of all the materials that you need depends on how large your guest list is. You can choose to make your wedding invitations using other materials, but these are the basic items that you will need to complete the project with ease.

Don’t Opt For Glossy

Remember to always avoid glossy paper when designing and creating your wedding invitations. Glossy might seem beautiful and romantic, but this type of paper is scratched very easily and is not ideal for graphics or other designs. Matte paper is the best option for your wedding invitations and save the date cards. This type of paper is more durable and simply looks more appealing.

Color Paper Options

If you are choosing color paper for your wedding invitations you can find great deals online. Buying your card stock or paper online from sites like eBay will enable you to get great deals and save a lot of money. Just be sure to get each color option from one provider to ensure that the shade matches perfectly. Be creative and just make sure to let your personality shine through in the invitations.
