Buying/Finding A Design: If you don’t have design experience, and you’re not fond of pushing images and text around on pages (aka, does the idea of designing a flyer for a Bake Sale or some other event excite you, or does it make you hide under your desk?), you’re going to need to find someone to design your DIY wedding invitations for you. Fear not! Thanks to the Internet (and Etsy, bless), there are tons of places to get an invitation design. Some are even our sponsors! Here’s a short list of places to check out.
Laid-back or official. You want a wedding event invitation to complement the total motif and mood of the wedding celebration. Is your wedding event casual or formal? An official wedding event may need classic manuscript fonts, formal wording, and also the typical dual envelope. A more casual invite may make use of much more modern-day typefaces as well as more natural wording.
Very formal invitations include this information on a separate card. Otherwise, it can be printed on the wedding invitation itself if there is room; if the ceremony and reception are held in the same location, you may print "and afterward at the reception" or "reception immediately following." When the reception is elsewhere, the location goes on a different line.
Most wedding event invitation business can supply a selection of design templates where you simply need to fill in the specific names, dates and areas. Many pairs choose to make their very own, to make the invitation less rigid and extra individualized. If so, below are a couple of guidelines:
You can absolutely switch up your wedding invitation wording to include the name of a deceased loved. One tactful and meaningful way to do this is to change the format slightly to accommodate the word "late" in front of your family member’s name. (Beyond the invitation wording, you have plenty of ways to honor a deceased parent during your ceremony and reception.) It can look something like this.
A lot of couples feel as though they are no different from their organic parents when it comes to tip parents. They desire to include them into the invitation. As well as while generally, the parents are consisted of, exactly how do you put in everybody's name?
What better way to set the tone for your nuptials than with a truly unique wedding invitation? You want something that can’t be found at every wedding retailer across the web? Then choose a design that was crowdsourced from our community of independent designers and artists. Minted holds contests all year long to ensure that only the freshest and most stylish designs end up being produced and sold. This frequent rotation of art and design means you are guaranteed to find a one-of-a-kind look for your wedding stationery.

My husband and I will be celebrating our 40th “Ruby” wedding anniversary in January with a blow-out bash, and we’re as excited as soon-to-be newlyweds. We wanted formal invitations that reflect a winter theme and RED (because, you know, “Ruby”). We were fortunate enough to find Elegant Wedding Invites with the perfect glittery, snowflake effect, but it was advertised in blue. No worries! Within 24 hours, Elegant Wedding Invites was back with me assuring us that the invitation card could be in red. It’s everything we’d hoped for. EWI worked closely with me as we tweaked some things (our changes, not anything they’d done incorrectly) and were very prompt with our proofs. The quality of these invitations is very good, the price is more than fair, and EWI’s response time is immediate. We’re thrilled with their end product!

The paper quality we offer at Ann's Bridal Bargains rivals our higher priced competitors and is definitely one of the things we get raving reviews about over and over again. Why? Because nobody expects a bargain invitation brand to have great paper but we do! Check out our Paper Options page for more of the nitty gritty details on the papers we offer.
We just got our invitations from elegant wedding invites and omg are they gorgeous. They were so easy to work with, they were happy to make any changes I asked of them and i went back and forth with them a million times changing the font changing what I wanted it to say. They made the changes and would send me an example of what it would look like. They didn’t place the order until I was happy and approved the invitation for printing. If you are afraid to order, do not fear you will love your invitations and you won’t spend a ton of money. If you have concerns about not having them do the guest address you can print on clear labels, you can find a calligrapher or if you have a cricut you can use the pen to address the envelopes. The assembly of the invitations was very easy even if your not crafty you can do it. I am so happy with how these came out and with the quick delivery, I think they came a week after I finally approved for print. Thank you Elegant Wedding Invite!
See something you like but it’s not quite right? One of the best-kept secrets we never meant to be a secret is that Minted actually offers Design Customization Services for almost all of our products. You can have us customize things beyond the tools automatically provided to you within our interface. Work directly with a designer to change color schemes and fonts. You can even hire a designer from our community to create something from scratch. If you’re not sure about a detail or simply want a look you haven’t seen yet, feel free to contact us using the form on the link above and someone from our team of design professionals will respond to your request quickly.
The couple’s parents should each be listed on separate lines, starting with the bride's or whoever’s name falls alphabetically first. Since both last names are included in the greeting, there’s no need to use last names for the to-be-weds—unless, again, if either of them has a different last name than their parents. In that case, list out their full name, in addition to the full names of their parents.
Even though we're serious stationery lovers, it's okay if all you really want out of your wedding invitation is a piece of paper that informs guests of a date, time and a location. If a simple invite is more your style and you want to keep paper costs low you can go the DIY printable template route—just remember anytime you take on a sizable wedding task solo there may be a couple more headaches in store. For example, if you don't have access to a high-quality printer or a hefty ink supply you're going to run into some issues. If you have an extra long guest list, you'll be camped out at the printer feeding it paper for a couple solid hours.
