Hey DIY bride! We know you're probably feeling a little overwhelmed with all things wedding planning, but we're here to help take a little off your shoulders.

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.
