What is the best way to make invitations for a wedding anniversary?

by DIY wedding planner on April 22, 2013

I made a design on photoshop but I don’t know if it would just be cheaper to do it through a place that would have pre-made templates? They would be color and fold so it would have a front and inside (paper printed on the front and back). They’d also have to be on nice thick paper. There would be 150 of them.

My husband and I designed our own invitations and printed them out on those kits you can get at Michael’s. We had close to 300 guests attend. All in all, the savings by making our own invites was not that great – maybe $30 once you add the cost of printer ink and larger envelopes? (The Michael’s kits do not come with two large envelopes, so we had to order slightly larger envelopes so they would have the double-envelope effect.) So I guess it comes down to how set are you on the design you’ve created? Is it a must, or would something from a pre-made template do? With ours, I designed our own Celtic knotwork that couldn’t be found in any templates, which is why we did it ourself.

The cost savings by DIY isn’t that great, so if you don’t care whether your invites are personally designed or use a template, you might want to order them just to avoid the hassle of printing them all out, which takes a while.

Try this place. They use pretty thick recycled papers.

At first organize your thoughts by writing them down. Also, try to make sure you’re not rushed. Give yourself lots of time. You could use a lovely photograph of yourself and your partner and use that as the front of the card. That would be a cool idea.

You can use elegant and often free wedding invitation templates to lay out perfect invitations for your wedding. Printable wedding invitations also can save money. You will find a number of free templates on the website shown below. You can choose a style or create your own style. Wordings of an invitation are more important. You could express the thoughts that are deep within your heart; you may have a favorite poem that you could use. I found a good website that can help you in all of those aspects.

Try out zazzle.com There are a ton of really talented designers there that specialized in wedding invitations. It’s very reasonable and when you order in bulk, you always get a great discount. I ordered xmas invites a few yrs ago and it was a great experience. Fast shipping, too.
