In our DIY series, we will be taking a look at wedding DIY ideas to suit all budgets with special emphasis on ideas that are both easy to carry out and which in some cases, cost next to nothing! In our first article, we take a look at DIY wedding Invitations and the many creative ways in which you can send out invites without worrying about costs:


The first idea for a DIY wedding invitation would be to make your own invites, is possible with the help of a family member or a friend who likes all things crafty. This idea may appear unpractical for a large-scale wedding and as long as you give yourself plenty of time to handcraft the cards yourself, it is the best way to add a personal touch to your invitation. Imagine how special your guests would feel to know that they hold a labour of love and time in their hands! Not only are they certain to turn up for your wedding but it works as a sentimental keepsake too. Be warned- no two cards may be exactly alike and that’s why this idea works best if you’re planning on inviting just a handful of people to your wedding ceremony.


Printable DIY wedding invitation cards are a fantastic option to consider. With amazing sites like Etsy and Greetingsisland among others, which give you so many wonderful options to choose from, you can customise everything yourself right from the colours that appear on your card to the font size to the text and even get matching envelopes as well. In fact, all you really need to invest in is good quality thick paper and of course, a good colour printer too. Many sites which offer this option also have good discounts depending upon the number of cards you choose to print.


E-wedding invitation cards are an online blessing for couples who just don’t have the time to sift through wedding invitation designs and to hunt for the right printing press that will accept a bulk order at short notice. Websites like Yoovite make your life so much easier.
