When you’ve received friends’ and family members’ wedding invitations in the past, you probably opened them and noticed how much the missives fit with the personalities of the bride and groom. Each wedding invitation should definitely reflect the personal tastes of the couple as well as the ambiance of the event. After opening an invite, guests should be clued in to whether the ceremony and reception will be a formal church wedding or a casual beach affair. Until you begin creating your ideal wedding invitation for your big day, you may not realize all that goes into making them.
First, you need to consider your budget, because how much you can spend on your invitations will impact your design decisions. Are you planning to enclose RSVP cards with postage on their envelopes? If so, add that expense to the tally. Once you know how much you can spend per card, take a look at styles, size of your invitation, the paper you will use, and the font and colors that align with your theme. When you create DIY invitations, you can save money by doing much of the tasks yourself. You may want to have a professional printer print them for you, unless you have access to a high-quality inkjet printer.
