  • Set a Budget

    As with any aspect of wedding planning, you most likely have a budget for each element. All of your wedding budgets come together to create a master budget. However, for your invitations, you may need to experiment and create your own. This will take a little more money, and setting a budget will keep you from overspending. Determine how many invitations you will need, and from there, you can work your way into the details, such as the paper quality and what you would like included within your suite. In addition, it’s important that you don’t forget to budget for postage as well!

  • Begin with the Basics

    There are many ways to create an invitation. So, if you don’t know where to start, just begin with the basics! Determine how much information you are putting on your invitation, and then you can determine the size, and possibly folds, that your invitation will need. Begin with basic colors, to get an idea of what you are looking for. From there, you can change colors, add decorations, and tweak your invitations to perfection.

  • Discover Your Envelopes

    Your wedding invitations should be accompanied by the perfect envelopes. Determining the right size is crucial before you get too far ahead of yourself. Does your invitation fit into a standard envelope, or will you need a different size? Another detail to keep in mind is the thickness of your invitation, especially if you are putting inserts in with your invitations. You can add a little pizzazz to your envelopes with a pearlized or textured paper to complement your invitation, and even a custom seal or sticker!

Creating your wedding invitations doesn’t have to be daunting task! In fact, with these tips, you can develop yours with ease.
