DIY options are perfect for people who want to be original, because it means making something that is truly yours and personal, and there is the unique factor. When it comes to DIY weddings, this becomes even more special. Your wedding invitations being the first entree of your wedding, becomes one of the most important items. Your DIY wedding invitations will have to be unique and truly something that you and your fiancé can be represented by, from your love, to the lives you lead and your personalities.
You can start with your DIY wedding invitations in two main ways. One being getting yourself paper and various other craft tools, drafting the look of the invites and also either printing or use calligraphy for the invitation wording on the DIY wedding invites. There is another easier to go about it. This is when you consult with a wedding invitations retailer; it would be easier if you found a convenient and cost efficient wedding invitations retailer online, that lets you select the types of DIY wedding invitations kits available. This way, you can see for yourself the possible paths you can take, as well as allowing you to add on invitation wording details and have them printed according to guest name, so that all you have to do is add you unique accents.
When choosing the second option, that is going with DIY wedding invitations kits from a reputable online invitations retailer, then there are some things that you need to look into as well as keep in mind. One thing is that, you will need your finalised guest list, their titles and addresses, and possible partners who will be accompanying them (of course, you may add the wording “and Guest,” but it is always courteous to add their name as well, further confirming their participation).
The DIY wedding invitation available to you will come in a variety of shape, sizes, folds, colours and of course with print layouts on the front cover, where you can feature your names and the date of the wedding. The mains styles and folds that are usually available include vertical and horizontally aligned cards that are either square or rectangular, which are folded as bi-folds, tri-folds, and pocket fold variety. Some cards do not need a fold, and are the feature of the DIY wedding invite, while some are postcard styled.
In terms of the print locations, being where the wordings on the front cover of the invite will appear, there are many options. The layouts of the invites can differ according to the number of columns and rows there are, and depending on this factor, the text will be placed by alignment, either left or right, or in case of 2-column look, top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right, and so forth. Browse through the various options, find which ones speak to you, compare these options, and pick out one option, even after having samples delivered to your doorstep.
The factor in which you bring originality is via the unique accents you will add to your DIY wedding invite, and this can be through so many ways. From stamping, whether it is with one colour, or a mixture of colours for varying design, or even an ‘ombre’ colour variation, to hand painting, calligraphy and typography art, to adding photos, borders, and various arts and crafts options such as ribbons, bows, floral touches, and much more.
