Anyone who made their own wedding invites and help wiTh color scheme?

by DIY wedding planner on June 6, 2013

I have decided to make my own wedding invitations. We are having a september wedding next year (I fell pregnant so we have to put it off) we decided we really like red as our wedding color and I’m thinking or orange yellow and white boquets but would like actual flower opinions and maybe other color suggestions?

To anyone who made their own wedding invites, save the dates or rsvp cards what kind of advice do you have for me? We are planning to invite around 100people. Thanks!

When making your own wedding invitations, definitely check out some magazines and other wedding resources like websites and such for ideas and inspiration. Many blogs even have a “how to” on some designs, simply google it and you’d be amazed at what comes up. When you use google, use the colors you’re interested in for specific examples, or you can use a color maker to see about matching colors together.

Best of luck to you and congratulations!

Have you tried to look into the DIY kits ? You can get them in pratically every color and most come in about 50 invites,etc, although Davids Bridal has kits of 100… Other than that, just google differant sites for ideas on homemade wedding ivites, you will get a ton of ideas.
I’m getting a kit from Target for about $35 and its exactly what i wanted, all i have to do is print them out at home.

For colors: I’m having a september wedding also of next yr( due to school), and i’m having aqua and white with pink accents… I think red and aqua might look nice together though…. As far as your flowers, I thinik that would look good together,


this might give ya some ideas:

Hope I helped :)

We went to a scrap-booking store, found really good paper there, that I had seen on one of the sample wedding invitations I had ordered. I’m also expecting 100 people and haven’t made the invitations yet but we have already bought all the paper, ribbon, adhesive glue. Most scrap-booking stores have rooms where you can come in for hours with your group to make them, that way you can get professional help if you need it and if you run out of product you know that there is some in stock, or they can order more for you when you run low on supplies. You could also look at samples of cards that other brides have gone in and maid they normally have books full of ideas for you!

As for flowers you can have calla lilies with different colored tips:

We made our own for our 2009 wedding using a DIY kit and an office printer for crisper colors. They come ins TON of options and were very user-friendly. We got a lot of compliments on them ( =

Also, I like the red/orange/yellow/white color scheme. Very pretty! You could use any flowers really, lilies, roses, daisies – depends on the mood you’re trying to set.

Here are some pics:;_ylt=A0WTb_2MhCxNKF4A3N.JzbkF?p=red+orange+yellow+wedding&fr=yfp-t-701&ei=utf-8&x=wrt&y=Search

Tips and ideas Guide for Wedding Flowers I discovered on preparing the flowers for my daughter’s wedding. With the economy crunch, it’s great to find a way to save a significant amount, when it seems all the costs are spiraling beyond our budget. I was especially excited to see directions for the hand-tied bouquets and the wrist corsages with the pins giving the finished effect.
