3 Affordable DIY Wedding Stationery Ideas

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.

1. Photoshop

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.

Final Thoughts

When planning a wedding it doesn’t take long to realize the amount of stationery and paper products required, and how much time DIY brides dedicate to designing their dream weddings. If you don’t have the time, quality printer, or steady hand needed to create DIY invitations, contact Forever Friends for premium invitations and wedding stationery items at affordable rates!

Sweet Sixteen Birthday Invitations

Throwing a sweet sixteen birthday party can be stressful. There are so many different aspects to planning, which can make it hard to keep track of everything. For the most part, throwing this special birthday party is straightforward. However, one thing many people get confused about is the invitation process. Considerably one of the most important aspects of the party, invitations are an essential part of a perfect get-together. With that being said, never fear — we are here to help!

Theme

Birthday parties are the perfect opportunity to throw a lavish themed party! There are a variety of different themes ranging from complex to simple. A sweet sixteen birthday party can be themed however you’d like. Whether you want to go all out or you want to simply focus on the age aspect, a theme is a great way to narrow down how you should format and create your invitation. If you have a set theme that is strict, your invitation is the chance to let your guests know. It should reflect the theme by the color, font, language, and images! All these different components come together to show your guest the type of party you’re throwing.

Make it Fun

Once you’ve narrowed down your theme, creating an invitation around the theme is exciting! You get the chance to really think about the different aspects of your birthday. Your invitation should be a fun representation of what your guests can expect at the party. Incorporate details that will get your friends and family excited to come! You can even include sneak peek activities and foods you’re offering. This is also a great way to help your plan and organize other aspects of your party.

Instructions

Your invitation is the number one way to show your guests what is to be expected day of. If you have any special instructions for your guests, make sure they are clearly written on the invitation. Important instructions to consider are: allergies for certain guests, RSVP requests, dress code, time frame, location, gift requests and more! Whatever it is you want your guests to know, put it on the invite!

Conclusion

A sweet sixteen birthday party is the perfect opportunity to get all your friends and family together to have a great time! Between picking a theme and coming up with fun activities, your invitations are going to be the number one task to focus on.

Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

Are you searching for the perfect baby shower invitation for your guests? If you’re online and trying to get ideas, you’ve come to the right blog! We’ve written down a few suggestions (with pictures included) for baby shower invitations regardless of whether the mom-to-be is having a boy or a girl, or keeping the gender under wraps. For the cutest and most memorable invitation cards your guests can “ooo” and “aww” over, keep reading!

For a Boy:

Keep it simple with an adorable blue onesie invitation, with minimal detailing like a small button and lace as shown above. There’s still enough space on the card to write down your information and include a reply card for your guests to confirm. We love the combination of the lighter blue and darker blue, as your party will instantly know they’re receiving an invitation for a baby boy!

For a more hipster vibe, choose an invitation with a burly black mustache or overalls and a bowtie on the front cover. With these quirky and fun details on the front, your guests can flip to the back to view information regarding the date, time, and location of your party. To save money on packaging, we recommend finding a large rectangular card so you can send your invitations without an envelope (which is less work for you)!

For a Girl:

Gold and pink are the perfect color combo for a baby girl! We suggest a card with cursive lettering or a large bold print. Your guests can admire the effortless and sophisticated style of this card when it arrives in the mail. If you want to be a little less traditional, go for orange and pink for a pop of color on your invitation!

Let your invitation shine like a star with a star print invitation. We love the pink-and-white stripe detailing, which can be seen on the front of the card or even as a bow in the center. If your mom-to-be likes baking, add a sweet treat inside for your guests to enjoy. No matter what your tastes are, your cards are sure to impress!

Surprise:

It’s no surprise that planning a baby shower can be an exciting time, especially when you and your guests are waiting on a gender reveal! If you’re planning a surprise shower, we recommend customizing a creatively designed card, which can incorporate a playful rainbow or perhaps purple hues (which is a mix of pink and blue).

Conclusion

Baby showers are a time to celebrate with family and friends, where your guests can come together and bring gifts for the new baby. Of course, you want to invite your shower party in style and you can do that with a cute and colorful baby shower invitation. The patterns and colors can reflect the baby’s gender, while also providing information regarding the party. Searching for the perfect invitation? Head on over to Forever Friends to view the largest selection of baby shower invitations and so much more!

4 Wedding Stationery Ideas

Wedding invitations are one of the most essential parts of planning a wedding because they set the tone of what guests are to expect on the wedding day. The invitation can be as creative as the couple wants it to be, which can make the process of making a wedding card fun and enjoyable!

As the wedding day approaches, there comes some questions. Will it be formal or casual? Will it be during the day or at night? Is there a theme for what they should wear? A wedding invitation says it all, especially when it comes to a theme. From mixed metals to beautiful, nature stationery, we have created a list of wedding stationery ideas to inspire you!

Mixed Metals

Metallics have become a popular trend to mix into wedding invitations and stationery designs. The combination of metallic colors like gold, silver, and copper is one of the top wedding invitation trends for 2019. Another new twist on metallics is rose gold! Rose gold can shine against a solid background. As the picture above suggests, the metallic hues are best placed over a white or light colored background for a subtle and chic stationery idea!

Watercolor

A watercolor wedding invitation can include a painting of the wedding venue or imagery that reflects the wedding’s destination, the wedding’s theme, or the couple. The personalized image can be displayed on the insert card or the outside of the envelope where guests can enjoy a beautiful watercolor illustration!

We recommend light pale hues to compliment your watercolor painting, with gold-foil lining on the outside of your card.

Greenery/Nature

For weddings that have a more natural look, consider leaves and greenery rather than your typical colored blooms. Couples can choose from a range of leaf silhouettes from thin and narrow leaves to large and bold palms. There are dozens of designs that incorporate leaves and greenery, including the one’s shown above.

Palms and leaves can best be seen on a white background. To add something a little different, go for a bright green envelope to stand out amongst the rest of the cards!

Interlocking Monograms

Monograms are a classic wedding detail that can be created in a variety of ways. A monogram can interlock a couple’s initials, so as to symbolize the love between each other (aww!).  The font style can be cursive, bold, or both depending on how traditional the couple wants it to be.

If you have a classic wedding style, then interlocking monograms are perfect! The writing on the card can be big or small, and include the information regarding names, places, and date of the wedding. For the monogram portion on this card, we recommend your choice of color on a solid white or ivory for a classic touch!

Conclusion

The perfect way to express your creativity as a couple is through a beautifully-made wedding invitation. We listed just a few of the many creative ideas out there to get you started on your wedding invitation journey.
