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.

A lot of planning goes
into the design of your wedding invitations. From selecting an elegant and legible
font, to picking the size of your card, you can showcase your personality and
style to your guests while still including all of the necessary information. In
this month’s blog, we’re looking at how to design wedding invitations with a
few key steps to remember along the way!
Size and Print
First, you want to pick the
shape and size of the invitation; these specifications will give you a lot of
information and make the design process a little more worry-free. Depending on
your preference to larger or smaller cards, this can determine how much
information you can fit, as well as other pictures and memorabilia of you and
your partner. It can also determine your postage situation (if you’ll need to
pay extra costs for shipping).
Is your wedding casual?
Perhaps it’s a black-tie event? Pick a visual theme for your wedding
invitations that matches the tone/theme of your wedding. You’ll want to settle
on a style that reflects your personality as a couple. You might spend a few
days looking at options online, or maybe you already have a concept in mind. Design
elements such as color, typography and other style flourishes can
also be used for the actual event (including table cards and signage).
The font on your wedding
invitation can speak volumes. While script writing is a popular style for traditional
cards, modern designs can be just as sleek and sophisticated. While you are
thinking about typefaces, this is the perfect time to think about the words
going on the card. Pick a typeface that works with your actual letters.
(Sometimes a great font doesn’t look the way you like with certain letter
combinations.) Make sure to test different fonts with important information like
the date, time, and location of your wedding.
Gather up your favorite
photos as a couple to put on your card; this kind of display can make your
wedding invitation more personal. If you have custom photos from a shoot, then
be sure that they will fit the area of your card. You don’t want your images to
come out blurry or too small where no one can see them. High-quality and
high-resolution photos are the way to go!
Of course, there are so
many different ways you can express your creativity with a wedding invitation.
