To design your own invite cuts down on costs and in fact is one of the most popular ways to trim a budget. It is possible to create your own wedding invitations for under $50, including paper, supplies and much more for 100 guests.
Get Help and use Existing Patterns
If you are afraid of the time crunch, get some friends or family to help out; they don’t have to be crafty, especially if you use templates or printed patterns and designs and it’s pretty simple to place cutouts onto blank cards. Instead of creating your own cards, purchase blank ones from craft or stationary stores, they are not only cheaper, but they will cut down a lot of time.
Once you have your ideas on paper, you can either use templates, stencils or get a copy shop to print out your text for you. If you use a copy shop, you will find they are actually inexpensive to use, especially for bulk orders, and they are quick as well. They can also cut your cards and do the folding for you to make sure the seams match properly. Another option is checking out the many templates online and DIY instructions on how to fold the card stock evenly and how to use existing materials you can find around your home to turn you into an artist.
