you can buy kits at a craft store like michaels, walmart and target also sell kits….these kits have software and a link to a site to help you!

or if you are more creative, you can hand make them with card stock and other papers.

I have a friend who has her own home business doing that stuff. Here is her site:

Tell her Lacey referred you.

I bought some do it yourself kits at wal-mart, and they turned out really nice. The website is, they have templates you can use as well.

Purchase some premade kits from Walmart and print at home. Probably the easiest and cheapest way to go.

The pre-made kits are the easiest. You can also try a publishing software like Microsoft Publisher – it comes with ready made invitation designs that you can change to your own liking. Lots of fun! Or go to your local paper store and buy blank paper that you just type the info on it.

If there is a Staples near by I would suggest going there. They sell entire wedding invitation kits. My wife and I did this. The cards that came with the kit had nice borders on them and came with envelopes, and easy to follow instructions for you to do it yourself on your computer.

We bought prescored cards from a craft store. Went on the computer made up what we wanted our invitations to look like took all that to Kinkos and had them done for $4. For all of our invitations, envelopes, and the vellum we used it was like $20 for 50 invitations. They did a great job and they work with you. They will even assemble them for you for like 1.00 a piece I think it was that rate.

Stores like Michaels ( and WalMart have invitation kits that are really easy to print up on your computer at home and look nice, too. Target also has some, but it’s probably cheaper at WalMart.

I bought the kit at Target, then got my own velum, had that printed on and attached the velum to the pre-made invites with ribbon and a little hanging silver heart.

They are *gorgeous*

Look at this site, you can find anything you need there.

You can buy invitation kits that come with everything you need. All you need to do is type up what you want inside and either print it yourself, or get it printed.

I’m planning on getting my invitations from Staples or Michael’s and getting them printed at Staples if I don’t do it at home.

Friends of mine got a kit from Staples and printed it all off at home. They looked great.
