I did my own invitations with blank wedding invitations I bought at office depot. Michaels Crafts and many office supply stores have a great selection of blank wedding invitations. Also you can try Vistaprint. They will take your design and print it for you. Another great site to look at is They

Why don’t you just do it without a template? We used the programme Word, we inserted a picture of the beautiful place we were going to get married at, we wrote the text next to it, and printed them on lovely papyrus paper. You can insert any photo you can imagine, it will be much more creative.

It depends on what invite kit/size of cards you are using, but if you are just using standard blank cards (with no kit) it’s really easy to make the template yourself in Word.

Just go into “Page Set Up” in the File menu and create a “Custom Paper Size” and set the paper size to be the size of card you are using. You will have to use the manual feed more to print, but other than that, it’s really easy to create the actual sized template. A7 is a pretty standard invitation card size … some versions of word come with a paper size already set for A7 cards, or you can download those from the Microsoft website.

If you are using a kit then just adjust the margin size to account for any fancy boarder or anything that might be one the blank cards. Many kits also have downloadable templates from the company website, it just depends on the company. We used a Martha Stewart invite and save-the-date card kit. There wasn’t a template for the save-the-dates, but there is every template necessary for the invites (even to print on the outer envelops to put your return address on the back flap and reply envelope templates to put your address on those with your printer).

I would recommend the Martha Stewart invite kits to anyone, they have many different designs that are all very pretty.

Good Luck!

Go online to Sign up and go under the community boards. There is a message board called DIY. The girls on there are always talking about making their own invites and they have tons of templates which they are usually more than generous and will email it to you! Good Luck!
