Wedding days can be a bit stressful and making your own invitation could really add to your burden. Here are simple and hassle free suggestions that could help you personalize them affordably and easily.
Have you experienced spending too much for a wedding invitation but no matter how much you explain and draw your concepts it never comes out in print! You wasted all that money for an invitation that just doesnt speak your style and doesnt even come close to your own expectations. So why not make it yourself? Its fast, easy and you are sure that it will come out the way you like it.
Making your own wedding invitation can be affordable and exciting! The availability of computers and inkjet printers makes doing graphics and other details for your wedding invitations attainable and easy, there are even online websites that can provide essential tips and even sample layout that could help in making invitations. All it takes to make a great personalized wedding invitation is your creativity and commitment in making it.
The first thing you have to do is decide on what will be the concept of your wedding. Its important to find a similar color of stationeries to match your ideal wedding day decorations. If your planning for a more conventional wedding, its best to get plain white stationeries or ecru. For a more vibrant and modern wedding style its best to have stationeries with colors similar to your motif.
After having the ideas in mind, its about time to compute and to arrange who will be in your bridal trail, the best man, brides maid, maid of honor, sponsors, ring bearer and etc, you can get ideas on this kinds of things in magazines and even online wedding sites. In addition buying the materials needed and knowing how many will you make is also a must in this activity, remember you are in a limited time frame.
Secondly, after gathering materials and knowing information regarding the bridal march, motif and etc. Its best if you try plotting the invitation, dont forget the essential information in the front page like; the title (i.e., Smith and Knickerham Nuptial), Date, Time and at the lower most area of the invitation the name of the person invited. The contents of the insides of the invitations are; 1) The Contents of the Bridal Entourage, 2) the bride and grooms parents 3) The lists of Sponsors/ Godparents, 4) the flower girls and ring bearer. Of course you should follow these suggestions/ lists faithfully this list may differ if youre in a different religious belief.
Thirdly, its important that your invitation embodies the character and traits of the couple, like if you and your fiancé are in to biking then your invitation could be the two of you biking together, or the invitation is shaped like a bicycle or a helmet or there are splatters of paint or a painting for artists. You just have to know your similarities and hobbies and blend it in a concept for your invitation.
Lastly, it would be best to get some help, like your best friend, sister or even your fiancé in making the invitations. This will help it be more of a relaxing activity than a hazardous task to do before your big day.
Self made invitations, no matter what kind of occasion it may be, offer you the opportunity to be creative and to express your ideas. Weddings are such a personal event and it would be best if the invitation speaks of true feelings and reflects the personality of the couple.
Making your wedding invitation unique will be enough for your guests to keep it as a keepsake/ remembrance of your big day! And it would even leave a lasting impression for the guests. All it takes is a little love, a hint of imagination and a cup full of devotion and patience.
