How to make your own wedding invitations?

by DIY wedding planner on December 6, 2011

I was wondering if anyone had any instructions or a web page that has good templates for making your own wedding invitations?

I bought my wedding invitations at Wal Mart (a box of like 50 was like $10) and it had directions for wording and printing your invitations. Mine looked great just like I had them done professionally.

go look in office supply stores and craft stores. usually they have a section in the paper supplys that has programs you can buy to make your own invites and everything else all the way down to the thank you cards.

my brother and his wife bought a kit at Michaels craft store and it had a program they popped into the computer and it printed what they wanted on the paper they picked out, and the invites turned out so pretty.

You could always buy cardstock in the color(s) of your wedding and buy stamps to decorate. We sorted did that for our save the date cards. We printed the wording on pretty paper with the computer (my fiance did that part). I stamped different designs with an acrylic stamp and acrylic block onto colored cardstock. I trimmed the wording pages with pinking sheers so it would have a little “frilliness” to it. I cut it smaller than the cardstock. I punched holes at the top of the paper and cardstock and tied the two pieces of paper together with some ribbon. They were really pretty. We did them all different shades of blue but all the paper was cream and all the ribbon was light blue. The stamp ink was black. It was a hit and go many compliments. Best of luck!

Try a Google search of “Wedding Invitation Maker”. Should find some useful hits. If I were you, I would make a rough template of what you want, then have it professionally done (if you can afford to do this financially). If not, there are plenty of card makers online. Make sure that the cards look very nice though, as they are a big part of a wedding.
