Make Your Own Wedding Invitations

by: Amy Spade

While you may not be the craft goddess or god, you can certainly make your own wedding invitations. Many couples look into this option because they think that it will be cheaper than the regular printed invitations, but this is not necessarily true. The pricing may be the same depending on the materials that you use.

Materials For Your Wedding Invitations

Going to your local arts and crafts store can be a truly wonderful time, but only if you have a little bit of an idea of what you need. Where a lot of expense comes in is when youíre wandering around aimlessly looking at things to buy. You end up purchasing things that youíll never use.

Hereís the way to shop smart (even if you donít have a plan). First, know how many invitations that you need to make. This will help you to choose materials that wonít cost a lot if you have to make a lot of invites. Know a few colors that you think youíd like to see in your invites. And if thereís a theme that youíre considering, then think about that too.

Go through the aisles of the store and pick up things that you think might work for an invitation. Right now, youíll only be buying enough to make a sample of your invitation. You want to see if you can make something before you buy a whole bunch of materials.

Making The Wedding Invitations

Now that you have a little bag of crafts, start making your sample invitations. You donít need to worry about the words just yet (these can be printed by a computer), so just make the rest of the invite. A lot of the time, what you plan to do doesnít quite work out, or it takes too much time and materials. Just try a bunch of things, and when you find something that looks great, write down everything that you used to make it.

This will be your list for when you go back to the store.

Making the actual wedding invitations doesnít need to be any more complicated than using a scissors and some glue. Try different colored ribbons and shells even. Use thick card stock paper for a background color and place a white sheet of paper where the wording will go.

And donít worry so much about being perfect. Although you want to make your invitations looks great, you also want them to still seem like you made them. Donít get too worried if something is slightly askew.

Wedding Planning Tips and Ideas

Monogram Design Tips

The brideís initial should go first in a wedding monogram. When the bride takes the groomís last name, the order is: brideís first initial, shared last initial (usually larger), groomís first initial.
