When getting married, couples need everything to be perfect. From venue of the wedding ceremony to the outfits, from embellishment to the invitations, everything has to be perfect. Invitations make a sudden impression in the mind of a recipient.
A vital part of the process is choosing wedding invitations – your guests have to know when and where it is! But wedding invites offer much more than a date to RSVP by, they can act as a teaser for your big day; you can drop hints about your colour schemes, a stylish taster for the event, and much more to boot. However, like almost everything else involved in getting married, invitations can get a little pricey.
But before digging into the deepest depths of your pockets, there are some great ways of cutting costs without sacrificing style. For example – have you ever considered making your own wedding invitations? It’s not as hard as you would think, and you don’t have to be a crafts guru to do it. There are plenty of stationary kits available on the market, which provide everything you need to create fantastic invitations.
Not everyone has an idea for a theme in mind when starting the design process though. Don’t worry if you are struggling – think about your favourite colours, and imagine what they would look like on paper. In terms of design, there is a whole world of ideas available at your fingertips, so go online and get inspired!
But before you leap in excitedly, there are other things to consider when designing your own invitations – remember that smaller cards mean pennies saved on postage and packaging. Also, don’t go over the top! You’ll undoubtedly be spending plenty of evenings making them with friends, and they probably won’t thank you for undue elaborate flourishes! Remember, less is more.
There are plenty of advantages in making your own wedding invitations. Aside from saving money, you’ll have total control over the design and colour schemes – making them as personal as possible. You’ll also get the chance to be hands-on in the creative process, and finally you’ll probably have a lot of fun doing it, too! Good luck, and have a great wedding day!
