Weddings are expensive. So it’s nice to find ways that you can cut the cost, whilst still be able to have your dream wedding. Although you don’t want to compromise on quality for the price, it’s nice to save where you can. That’s where DIY wedding invites come in. But it’s not just about the cost. Homemade wedding invitations hold an array of benefits, including that they:

Showcase Your Creativity 

Weddings are all about expressing who you are as a couple – and wedding invitations are a great way to start this off! It might be daunting to know where to start on the wedding planning front, but as long as you have a list of who you are going to invite, you can start to think about what your wedding invitations will look like (after you have sent out your save the dates, of course). A wonderful benefit of DIY wedding invitations is that you can showcase your creativity through them. They can be as complicated as you want, or as simple as you want – the choice is yours. Now, it’s important to remember when you are making your own invitations that you shouldn’t be spending your entire time on them. Yes, you want them to be perfect. But when you decide to make them, you need to know that you should take some time for yourself to sit back, relax and plan other elements of the day. If you want to make a night of it, gather your friends together and create them! This makes the whole process more fun and will lighten the load of you having to make them on your own (or with your partner).

Can Be In Any Style You Want 

As mentioned above, your wedding invitations will be centred around you as a couple. That’s why DIY wedding invitations take the cake above professionally made ones. There are a variety of places that you can purchase DIY wedding invites from, which will give you the chance to customise them to suit your taste – from choosing the font to the colours, materials and personalisation. 

By buying a pre-made kit, it will take away some of the stress of making the wedding invitations, giving you more time to spend on planning and thinking about what you can expect from the day. They are also more affordable than that of premade ones and have that professional look that you want! Pre-made kits won’t take away any of the creativity, it will simply make your ideas come to light with the help of a specialised invitation company.

This will give your guests a little taster of what to expect, whilst ensuring that everything is kept within the set theme. There are plenty of ways that you can do this when you are creating your own invitations. For example, if you are having a rustic-themed wedding, you can buy some brown card, hessian, string, buttons and anything else that you think will add a creative flair to the invite. No matter what your style, you will be able to create an invitation to match. You can go as subtle or as dramatic as you want with your themed wedding invitations – just remember that you will have to pay for postage, so you don’t want them to be too heavy!

At the end of the day, it’s up to you as to what you want your wedding invitations to look like and that’s why making your own could be the best option.
