Do It Yourself Wedding Invitation Templates

 

If you are a relatively creative person, you can design, create and print you own wedding announcements.

Actually, with so many options in online wedding invitation templates you can download you don’t really have to be creative, just decisive.

There are a few things to take into consideration when you choose the do-it-yourself wedding invitations option over ordering and having it done professionally. Before going over the factors for DYI invitations, you need to understand the benefits of choosing this option.

Creativity – Designing your own announcements can be rewarding. It might be a little time-consuming, but it also allows you to personalize your invitations as you see fit. As long as you allow yourself plenty of time, this should not be a problem.

Templates – If you aren’t into designing invitations from scratch, you can choose from several different wedding invitation templates online. These can be downloaded and edited however you want them using word processing or photo editing software.

Cost – Doing this yourself can be the most cost-effective solution, especially when you are having a small to medium size wedding with fewer than 500 guests.

Even if you plan to have 500 or more guests you can still design or use a downloaded template to print a sample and shop around for bulk printing prices to save your money for your honeymoon. Price is one of the biggest considerations, especially where your budget is concerned.

Software – There are many different types of software programs you can find that are compatible with downloaded wedding invitation templates. MSOffice, Picasa, OpenOffice and other programs that are readily available can aid in the editing and printing of your wedding announcements. Some of these programs are free to use, while others come with a price.

Some of the considerations for printing your own wedding announcements include the following.

Stationary and Envelopes- Your basic options here include various types of plain printing paper, like parchment or wedding-related letterhead or cards with pre-printed designs. It depends on what you are trying to achieve with your invitations. The easiest and best way to do your own invitations is to find kits that include everything you need to make your wedding announcements.

Addressing – It’s best to hand write the addresses on your invitations as it’s more personal. It has become more acceptable in some arenas to use handwritten font styles for printing envelopes, but handwriting them is still more personal.

When you buy a kit for printing your wedding invitation templates remember to place the tissue paper inside the invitation, add the RSVP card and reception invitation (if applicable) and utilize the inner and outer envelopes for etiquette’s sake.

Wedding Invitations for Every Personality

Wedding Invitations for Every Personality

 

Prior to Mr. Johannes Gutenberg inventing his printing press, weddings were largely announced by a Town Crier. This was due the fact that illiteracy was a widespread issue and so anyone who could hear the reporter became a part of the wedding party.

Most written invitations were known among society’s most elite citizens and were often done by experienced calligraphers and would often include the family’s coat of arms. These were the earliest forms of wedding invitation templates and have evolved ten-fold henceforth.

Most modern wedding invitation templates include the couple’s personalities or hobbies. The wine enthusiast may create templates with grapes or glasses of wine upon them and the bookworm may include a stack of books or a book shelf.

There are lots of templates to choose from but most often the bride to be likes to create her own so as to give the invitations that extra special touch.

There is a certain amount of etiquette involved in creating wedding invitation templates. For example, the father of the bride is typically the host of the party and therefore the invitations should read that he along with his wife are requesting the honour of presence in the marriage of his daughter and her last name is not to be included unless she will be retaining it after the wedding.

The word ‘honor’ should always be written in it’s British English form. Basically, the names of whoever is financially helping with the wedding should have their names first on the template. When the bride and groom are paying for their own wedding, their names should be first.

For the most part, wedding invitation templates can be designed in any font and writing style but most often they are either in calligraphy or italics. You can design your own template right from the comfort of your home or speak to your wedding planner about those services.

Usually any card shop will have an on-site card engraver who can not only design the template for you using your ideas, but they can also emboss your envelopes with the names of your guests as well.

Addressing the envelopes is typically the job of the mother of the bride, though, times are changing and anyone with good penmanship or typesetting skills can take on the duties.
