It’s incredible all that a DIY bride can accomplish when blessed with a bit more spare time than spare cash. In this month’s blog post we discuss three DIY wedding stationery ideas that may require a little more time, but will help you save hundreds of dollars on your overall budget.
If you or someone close to you has sufficient experience using Photoshop, you can use the program to design your own stationery and bring your ideas to life. This option requires you to purchase plenty of your own stationery paper and printer ink, if printing from home. It’s also crucial that you know your desired image dimensions and have access to a high quality printer and paper cutter.
2. Buy a Template
A quick online search will lead you to thousands of digital templates for all types of stationery, including packages that contain everything you need from save the dates and invitations to table number markers and dinner menus. The beauty of this option is you simply shop for a collection, download it and input your wedding details before printing and cutting everything out.
3. Go Digital
Sending digital invitations is a rapidly growing trend because it’s convenient, affordable, and earth-friendly. Online invitation tools are easy to find and will cover a majority of your stationery needs, including invitations, RSVP’s, save the dates, and thank you cards. Keep in mind however that this option is not suitable for menus, table number markers, or programs.
