Personalization always makes people feel that they are important, that they are thought of more often that they know, and that they are special to the person who sent them the personalized object. DIY wedding invitations are the perfect way to invite the most important people in your life to one of the most important events in your life.
Where to Start
- First you need to browse the website under the heading of DIY Wedding invitations. Here you will find many different shapes, colours, textures and styles. Think about the one that will fit your needs. If you have a favourite colour, you may want to choose that. If you have other cards that you will be ordering to go along with the invitation, you may want to choose a pocket style invitation.
- You can choose from standard wording available on the site, or use your own wording. Inserting a verse or poem that you both enjoy or describes your feelings for each other will make it all that much more personalized.
Check Before Your Order
- Make sure that all the information you are putting on the card is correct. Spelling, addresses, dates and dress code, if there is one, should all be accurate and spelled correctly since these will be printed exactly the way you specify.
- Make sure you are using an accurate count from the guest list. It is also wise to order a few extra since there are bound to be some who might have been accidently left off the list or new ones added at a later date.
- Make sure that you order all the other necessary cards at the same time. RSVP’s, accommodation and direction cards, place cards, name tags, napkin bands, table cards and thank you cards can actually be ordered in specially priced packets with the invitations or separately.
