Why you should design your own wedding invitations

November 26, 2011 · Print This Article

While some people might think it’s difficult or time-consuming to design your own wedding invitations, there are so many reasons why you should do it yourself. First of all, it’s a lot of fun and you will feel proud of your invitations knowing they are original, personal and one-of-a-kind. As a bonus, designing them yourself will also save you money.

Keep in mind that while designing your own invitations will save you money, you should still get your invitations printed at a professional print shop. Normal desktop printers won’t be able to give you a professional look and feel.

Design guidelines for wedding invitations

  • Theme: When you start thinking of ideas for your wedding invitations, you should think about the theme of your wedding day. You want your invitations to match the theme and colour of your wedding perfectly.
  • Graphics: You can decide whether you want to create your own graphics with free programs on the internet or download clipart from the internet. Another option is to use your own pictures as background. Whichever option you choose, you should play with your graphics, pictures, borders, templates and colours until you find the combination that suits your wedding best.
  • Printing: Even though it’s best to print your invitations at a professional printing shop, you should still experiment with different paper finishes and print a few invitations yourself so that you can get an idea of how they are going to look and feel.
  • Envelopes: If you are designing your own invitations, you will probably design your own envelopes as well. You can fold it to your own style as long as they match your theme and colours.
