inspiration

I decided to design my own wedding invitations, since I enjoy doing DIY Projects and couldn’t find a style of invitation online that best fit with my wedding theme and colors.

I got a lot of inspiration from online searches to get an idea on style for my invitations and what I wanted to include within them.

materials


tools

I purchased all of my invitation pieces and printing through Cards and Pockets. I choose to use the Signature Kit with 3 inserts.

I only used computer programs such as Adobe InDesign and Photoshop to create the artwork for my invitations.

assembly

My invitations required a bit of an assembly line once it arrived. I decided to pay to have Cards and Pockets attach my invitation mat to the pocket, and then my husband and I attached the invitation to that pocket. We also decided to attach our belly bands to the invitations and attach the envelope liners into the envelopes.

This whole process took 2 evenings of work, but was totally worth it. We even ordered a custom stamp for cheap off Etsy to stamp our return address and purchased clear address labels for our guests.
