When my boyfriend and I decided to get married, we were a little short on money. Because of this, we needed to figure out a way to plan a nice wedding without having to worry about hiring a wedding planner. The first thing that we needed to consider was the wedding invitations. I told my future mother-in-law that I had plenty of ideas for DIY Wedding Invitations. After all, I have always been very crafty.
The first thing that we needed to do was to decide on a photo to put on the wedding invitation. Thankfully, my fiance and I were able to come up with the perfect picture. Next, we were going to need a decent amount of paper for the invitations. My fiance wanted something very simple. I told him that because I am only going to be getting married one time, I wanted to make sure everything was perfect. I allowed him to pick the paper for the back of the invitation while I chose something for the front. I decided that vellum would look great over the top of our photo. I quickly found out that DIY Wedding Invitations could look just as good as anything that was done by a professional.
Thankfully, I was able to come up with a nice font on my computer. My mom offered to pay for the ink for my computer. I was able to print my invitations in my very own home. The only other thing that we needed to come up with was some envelopes. Thankfully, we were able to get them for a discounted price.
At our wedding reception, we had many friends and family members who gave us compliments on our DIY Wedding Invitations. One friend did not believe that I was able to do these on my own. I told her that I had to take my time and look online for different ideas. Now that I look back, I am glad that I decided to do the invitations on my own rather than paying someone to do them for me. They turned out exactly the way that I wanted them to. They were very affordable to make. They were also very unique.
If I had it to do all over again, I would definitely decide on DIY Wedding Invitations. My husband is always complimenting me because I know how to save money. I figured that we may as well save as much as we can because we do not have a lot. If any of my friends are interested in making their own wedding invitations, I am happy to show them where I was able to come up with so many cute ideas. There are so many different types of paper that can be used. It all depends on personal preference. I am just glad that I took the time to play around with different paper and different styles so that I could get exactly what I wanted without having to spend a lot of money.
