How To Make Your Own Wedding Invitations

by Molly Hinges

You may not be a craft goddess but still, you make you make your own wedding invitations. Most couples think that this is cheaper than the regular printed invitations which is why look into this option but this is not necessarily true. The pricing may be the same depending on the materials that you use.

The thought that goes into them is considered as very special in home made invitations.

When you Get the Materials

Going to your local arts and crafts store can be a truly wonderful time, but only if you have a little bit of an idea of what you need. Otherwise, you will be wandering around aimlessly and looking at things to buy all the while having a lot of expense come in. You will then end up buying things that you will never use.

Even if you don't really have a plan, you can still shop smart. Knowing how many invitations you need to make is the first thing you need to figure out. This will help you to choose materials that won't cost a lot if you have to make a lot of invites. Know a few colors that you think you'd like to see in your invites. If you are considering a particular theme, then you can think about that as well.

When you get to the store, go through the aisles and pick up the things that you might need for your invitations. Right now, the materials you will get should be enough to make a sample of your invite. Before you buy a whole bunch of materials, you first want to see if you can make something.

When You Get Home

You can start making your sample invitations now that you have a little bag of crafts. Just make the rest of the invite since you don't have to worry about the words just yet because you can use a computer to print these. Most of the time, what you plan to do will take too much time and materials or it doesn't quite work out. Just try a bunch of things and write down everything that you used to make the invitation when you find something that looks great. You need to have this list when you go back to the store.


Making the actual wedding invitations doesn't need to be any more complicated than using a scissors and some glue. Try different colored ribbons and shells even. For the background color, use thick card stock paper and place a white sheet of paper where the wording will go.

You don't have to worry so much about being perfect. You would want your invitations to look like you made them but at the same time you want them to look great. If something is slightly askew, don't worry about it.
