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 areas 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.
