Did you know that the average couple spends $28,000 on their wedding? If that price tag sounds a bit steep, there are places you can trim costs without cutting the quality. One of those is the wedding invitations.
With some DIY creativity, you can design memorable cards on any budget. Read on to find ideas for designing your custom wedding invitations!
If you’re hosting an eco-friendly wedding, you can reflect that thinking in your invitations. Yes, plantable wedding invitations do exist! The papers contain seeds that make these invitations plantable.
Creating wedding invitations on biodegradable paper for an outdoor wedding in the woods ties in perfectly with the nature theme. Other options include emailing invitations to avoid using paper. Or you can go with paper made from 100% recycled paper to do some good for the environment!
Are you not sure where to start or concerned about your artistic skills? Not to worry — a template will have you covered! Use an invitation creator for a simple way to craft winning Adobe wedding invitations.
The design elements, such as the text and visual embellishments, will already be set. You can modify the color scheme to match what you’ve selected for your wedding. And, of course, you can swap out the text to reflect your personality and essential details.
Are you planning a more refined wedding? If suits and evening gowns are part of the dress code, then dress up your invitations with metallics, vellum, and embossment.
The translucent quality of vellum makes it an elegant upgrade from standard cardstock. And if you use gold leaf or metallic ink for your text, you’ll have a refined combination.
To go another step, use embossment to add a touch of low relief to the paper. You can use embossment to create a design motif that borders the invitation’s edge. Or use it to create a subtle seal on the invitation envelope.
You don’t need fancy papers or materials to create a memorable invitation. You can feature unique typefaces to create beautiful designs. Then, print them on a sturdy piece of white paper for a crisp way to announce your big day.
For a clean and modern look, skip the serif. Fonts like Helvetica don’t have embellishments and would look perfect on a minimalist invitation. On the other hand, scripts with flowing lines add a softer look.
Or keep things playful by mixing and matching bold typefaces with elegant ones. Blend whimsical letters channeling an Art Nouveau style with Playbill font for a fun mash-up.
Creating wedding invitations doesn’t have to be an expensive hassle. With the right tools, you can have fun creating invitations that reflect your personality and the theme of your big day. So choose the paper, colors, and style — and then get started!
