Hey DIY bride extraordinaire! Are you feeling overwhelmed with the never-ending tasks of wedding planning? Don't worry, we've got your back! Picture this: crafting your own dreamy wedding invitations, a labor of love that will leave your guests in awe and your heart dancing with joy. But hold up, we totally get it - diving into the world of wedding stationery can be a bit intimidating, especially if you're not sure where to begin.
Fear not, for today, we're going to dive headfirst into the delightful world of making your own wedding invitations - the stress-free, fuss-free, and fun-filled way! By the time we're done, you'll be the proud creator of invitations that not only shout 'you' but also whisper love in every stroke and swirl. Let's get this crafty party started!
Step One - Start With a Template
A template can help you save time and money! Rather than trying to totally DIY (buying your own fonts & graphics, designing the invitation from scratch, etc.), a template allows you to choose a style you like and simply plug in your own info. That's it! Wondering where to get templates? Check out our Etsy shop for designs you'll love.
Step Two - Customize Your Invitations
We use Canva, a free online graphic design tool that allows you to fully customize your invitations without having to download any software or need high-level design skills. If you've never used Canva before, check out this tutorial I made with step-by-step instructions on how to personalize your invitations.
Step Three - Download & Print
When you're happy with your invitations, click download. You can download as JPG, PNG, or PDF. We recommend selecting the "PDF-PRINT" option, as this will be the highest quality for printing at 300 DPI.
Don't know where to print? We recommend Prints of Love. They offer fast, free 2-3 day U.S. shipping + free envelopes! Plus they'll plant a tree for every order you place. Head to this link to upload your files and enter coupon code: alyssanapierdesign for 10% off your order.
