How to create wedding invitations template
Take inspiration from websites and magazines that feature wedding invitations. (accepting the inviye image by Bettina Baumgartner from Fotolia.com)

Making your own wedding invitations is a way to add a personal touch to your wedding. It can also be cheaper than buying professional invites. You can make one template for all of the invitations, keeping the wording standardised, or personalise the invitation for different people. Use ribbons, charms and photographs to customise any basic card.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Buy a set of postcards and put one aside. Print the text for your invitation on one side of the postcards. Include the address of the venue, the date, time and instructions for sending an RSVP.

  2. 2

    Design your basic decoration template using the postcard you set aside. Add borders by using stamps from a craft store. Decide on a central image; for instance, place a passport-sized photo of yourself and your fiancé in the middle or the top of the card. Alternatively, hand draw hearts, rings, churches, brides or flowers. Practice drawing the images on a separate piece of paper, and use this as a template.

  3. 3

    Add embellishments to the top of the invitation. Punch two holes through the top of the card and thread a length of ribbon through them to tie a bow. Add charms by threading them onto ribbon and attaching them in the same way. Glue pressed flowers around the edge of the invitation. Be creative and experiment.

  4. 4

    Add a greeting to the front of the invitation. You can hand-write the greeting with a fountain pen, buy words cut from card stock or use stamps.

  5. 5

    Use this card as a template when you create the rest of your invitations.
