Who doesn’t like to stand out unique from the rest, we all are different, unique and wonderful. It’s the little things that set us apart, and why shouldn’t we be proud of it. When you’re planning your wedding day, you might want to DIY it. With DIY wedding invitations to start with, you will be able to put together a beautiful work of art that will be the first item that will unveil your wedding day to your guests and invitees. The look of your DIY wedding invitations and how it is presented will make a huge impact on first impressions and how much excitement you rile up amongst your wedding invitees. We’ve put together a couple of steps to take to get your DIY wedding invitations designing underway and how you can finish it off in a beautiful and classy way.
First things first, when you’re ready to start on your DIY wedding stationery vision, you need to have an overall wedding vision in mind. This can include the colour scheme, the flowers you may want to use, the textures you’re looking at featuring in your the bridal attire to decorative items, and more. Once you have an idea on what you would like your wedding to be, sit down and start looking for inspiration for DIY wedding invitations, stationery and accessories you can use for your wedding, brainstorm ideas with your fiancé and then sketch out a few DIY wedding invite styles for the stationery items that will be used as invite accessories, ceremony stationery as well as those used for the reception, and more.
Once you’ve got sketches of your drafts in hand, the next step would be to create a mock-up. A mock-up sample is something you can do yourself at home with whatever items you can find, and you can make them for each design you have sketched out. Once you have each DIY item laid out you can make an informed decision. Doing this will allow you to see for yourself the options available to you where you can even select which design is best for which stationery item, such as a hardcover DIY wedding invite with a satin ribbon clasped with a pearl cluster that can be placed inside a DIY wedding invitation box and then once more wrapped with a ribbon and labelled with a customised sticker/label which will include the guest name and address information. Imagine a beautifully presented wedding invitation box being handed to you. Wouldn’t you be just blown away? No one will believe you if you tell that you put it all together as a DIY wedding invite.
Most of us know DIY as “Do it Yourself”, but there’s a new twist on it now. That would be to “Design it Yourself”. Starting with a design all the way up to executing it at your hands is a great and personal thing, especially when it involves your wedding day. When it comes to your DIY wedding invitations, stationery and other items that you might need on the day of the wedding, you can have a pick of any design you like. This is especially true since you can source the materials easily and create something magical from it. Let’s find out some great designs for DIY wedding invitations that’s creating a buzz out there and how you can make it come true for you.
Handmade Wedding Invitation in Box
You probably already have a great idea in mind for your DIY wedding invitations. When you are choosing the handmade route of design, there is a greater appeal as the card in itself becomes a keepsake item from your wedding day. As a representation of the good news of your nuptials, your DIY wedding invitations should receive the respect it deserves. Go all the way with your wedding invitations to fit your budget. Whether you are opting for speciality paper, fancy embellishments and the likes, make sure to fit your invitation into a lovely invitation box for a beautiful presentation. Using an invitation box would be ideal when the contents of the wedding invitation design include delicate items, such as a feather appliqué or merely as a making a unique statement of your wedding.
This trend was made even more popular with the recent “Bridesmaids” movie which featured an invitation box with the wedding invitation card, as well as trinkets and a box that contained a live butterfly that flew away when opened.
Tie a Knot DIY Wedding Invitation
The phrase “tying the knot” comes from various cultures where it means to say ‘wedlock’. A new trend involves a gate fold wedding invitation with string attached to each gate, where it opens up to tie the knot in the centre of the string that is attached. This is a fabulous and unique way of making a statement with your DIY wedding invitations.
Another way of opting for a knot design could be to put in a bow to tie your DIY wedding invitation package nice and tight. Whether it’s a gate fold design, pocket wedding invitation or any other style, you can simply use a ribbon to tie it all in place with a cute bow.
These are some great ways brides and grooms alike have honed in their creativity to make something beautiful using DIY materials. With DIY wedding invitations, you aren’t just spreading the good news; you are making a personal statement.
