Wedding invitation etiquette dictates that the dress code, if it's to be included on the invitation, is is the lower right hand corner of the invitation. If you don't include a note on attire, the invitation will indicate the dress code. For example, if the invitation is very fancy, guests will likely anticipating a formal, black-tie affair, or conversely, if the invitation on the simpler side, that indicates a more casual dress code.

If you are trying to manage the number of guests, put a tiny card that states, "We have reserved __ seats for you." This is a subtle and respectful way of lessening the headcount.

Packaging And Embellishments: If you’re adding embellishments, or you’re mailing more than just an invite plus an RSVP card (we opted to mail more info, because of the destination aspect), keep track of the weight of your invitation suite once it’s all packed up. Depending on its size, you may be facing more postage fees than a simple stamp will cover. You can get a postage estimate using a kitchen scale and checking on the USPS website. Through the USPS website I also learned that square invites and envelopes cost more in postage, by a significant amount. It’s not worth it.

From flowers to cake to decor, not to mention the dress, weddings can be incredibly expensive. Many brides these days try to counter this problem by making as much as they can and cutting corners on some things that might not matter quite so much. When I first thought about homemade wedding invitations, I thought “no.” When I looked at the possibilities for DIY wedding invites, I was both surprised and inspired. Some of the most lovely invitations I have seen, (and I’ve looked at lots!) handmade invitations give an extra special touch to your celebration because you took the time to make them yourself.


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.

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.
