More and more brides are getting more and more involved in wedding planning, right down to the making wedding items and elements themselves, such as DIY wedding invitations and stationery to the wedding decor. However, at the time of the wedding, the decor needs to be handled by somebody else, but the wedding stationery and invitations can be sorted out way in advance, and therefore is a convenient choice to DIY when it comes to their wedding.
You have the option of going with both DIY Wedding Invitations and Stationery Kits or to start from scratch with DIY wedding paper, trims, embellishments and more. Depending on which choice you opt for, the next stage is done accordingly. Let’s look at both options.
DIY Wedding Invitations and Stationery Kits
When choosing this option, you need to have a theme or vision in mind to make sure that you do not purchase the kits and then later change your mind. Therefore, sketch it out and then look for the type of kits that match your criteria. Whether it’s shape, sizing or the way it is styled or folds, there are many things to look at, not forgetting colour, of course.
The next stage would be to opt for printing or to do it on your own. Some of the best wedding invitations retailers allow you to customise your DIY wedding invitations kits from the start, just by giving them the guest list and they will print it for you and have it delivered. If you opt of out this option, then you can go with a calligrapher, or if you have beautiful handwriting, then you can go ahead and do it yourself. However, if you are going to have the wedding invitation wording printed separately, then that item can be left as the final touch, which then needs to be attached to the wedding invite creation. You may opt to add ribbons, floral embellishments, studs, buckles and so more for that added glam.
Start from Scratch with DIY Wedding Invitations and Stationery
If you are doing the wedding invitations and stationery from scratch, you will need tools and materials. Here are some items you will need, and it is always best when you have a vision and theme before starting and even buying the materials in question.
- Paper (either regular, shimmer or recycled paper – 200-250gsm)
- Cutter and Cutting Tool
- Paper Punches
- Rubber Stamps & Inkpads
- Watercolour Paint and Brushes
- Adhesive & Glue

With these tools and materials, you can set about making the vision of your DIY wedding invite and stationery come alive.

Always create a sample beforehand to make sure you know what you want and you can see the intended result so that all your DIY wedding invites and stationery maintain the same standard.
