Designing Your Own: If you’re choosing to design your own DIY wedding invitations, you probably have a good idea of what you’re hoping it will look like. You might even have a grasp of some of the skills you’ll be bringing to the table to make that vision a reality. Or, you’re hoping to learn a little more about the process and designing in general. Or maybe you just want to get a little crafty. All of these reasons, and more, are good reasons to do your own invites. We’ve got a whole bunch of extra tutorials, in case you want to brush up on a few skills before you put proverbial pen to paper.
You can include another small insert revealing your new address if you are moving to a brand-new house after the wedding event.
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!
Finish: Your paper finish will affect how you’re able to print and how much ink your invitation will take. Glossy papers take a lot more ink and longer to dry. Linen papers and papers with more texture have a much higher tendency to bleed, and so they won’t work with some at-home printers where you can’t change your ink settings. If you’re not interested in researching finishes because you’re not a weird nerd (like myself) who likes to feel on paper, a matte card stock is an easy, relatively foolproof option that will more than likely work for the printer you’re using.
