How To Design Wedding Invitations + A Discount!

In between choosing a wedding dress and selecting the most appropriate tableware for your big day – is the all important issue of wedding invitations. Invitations are an important part of the wedding planning process. Once you’ve decided on the date, you have to decide who you want to be there on your special day. These days you have quite a few options when it comes to designing your invitations. Depending on your budget, you can leave it all up to the professionals, or you can save money by making your own (it’s actually not as time-consuming as you may think). Besides, it’s important to convey your individual taste and personality by crafting your own unique wedding invitations. Here are some of the things you might want to consider when you create them yourself.

First you should decide what type of printing you want for your invitations. Some of the popular options include engraving, letterpress printing, embossing, lithographic printing or regular old ink printing. Each style is dramatic in its own way, although some are most pricey than others. There are printing businesses out there that specialise in wedding invitation printing and may help you to choose a suitable printing style.

Blue & White Wedding Invitations

The second thing you need to consider is the style and aesthetics of your wedding invitations. If you’re hosting a traditional white wedding, you can’t go wrong with bold calligraphy on delicate ivory paper. Clean, understated designs work best for a more classic look and feel. Remember, your invitations should reflect the atmosphere of your wedding. If you are having a religious wedding, be sure to convey that through your invitations; use the appropriate colours and symbols. More casual beach or garden weddings may use light, fresh colours and related graphics. Church weddings are considered to be more formal, so you should adhere to a more traditional style.
Glamorous Red & White Invitations

There are a number of style elements you should consider; the font, the background, the border, images and the general format. If you’re unsure what you want, you can browse a range of templates online and use them for inspiration. Some printing companies offer templates so if you find a design you like, you can print it with the details of your wedding.

Whimsical Pink & Grey Invitations

If you’re a bit craftier or you want to have more control over the appearance, you will need to decide on the details you want to have on your invitations. Gold or silver borders, black script and floral detailing are popular options that look great.

Overall, you do not need to spend a lot of money to make your wedding invitations look beautiful. All you need is a little bit of time and some inspiration.
