One of my extraordinarily talented bridesmaids made all of our invitations. She printed them on a linen-textured cardstock, glued that to a colored cardstock backing, punched holes at the top, threaded ribbon through them, and then stitched the edges with colored thread in a zig-zag pattern on her sewing machine. All I had to do was put the invitations and RSVP cards in the envelopes and address and stamp them. There were imperfections on most of them (I picked the closest-to-perfect one to send to my mom, since she was skeptical of the whole DIY invitation idea), but that is part of the charm of handmade things to me. And we have gotten so many compliments on the invitations, it’s insane. One tip, and this goes for DIY or ready-made invitations: If you do RSVP cards, unless you print your guests names on the cards for them, number your guestlist and put the number on the RSVP cards in an inconspicuous place. We had about half a dozen RSVPs returned with no name on them, which was incredibly frustrating. This tip was shared with me AFTER our invitations went out, and I so wish I had known it beforehand!

In this case, you just want a damn invitation, and you don’t even care. Maybe wedding paper isn’t your thing, maybe you just need to send out the invitations this week, maybe you know no one in your family is going to ooh and ahhh over your wedding invites, so why bother. Or maybe you think, “I’ve got good design in the bag, I’m done.” I print invitations from home a couple of times a year, because Kimi is a super good sport, and she designs birthday party invitations, and shower invitations, and everything for us. So, if you’re printing at home lazy-style, do the following:

Printable wedding invitations are pretty much the best ever, when you’re looking for cheap (but stylish) wedding invites. (Hey,  Printable Press!) But that doesn’t mean that printing your own wedding invitations can’t feel a little overwhelming. But fear not! When figuring out how to make your own wedding invitations, there are a bunch of easy ways to get it done: at home or with a printer. So let’s get started.

The holy grail of our DIY invitations project was spray adhesive. I was literally about to buy some fancy glue sticks when my friend (who clearly came with me for this purpose) stopped me and insisted I get spray adhesive. The layers looked better than they would have with a glue stick, nothing came apart, and putting together 90 invites took maybe an hour. Printing at Staples was another life savor. We didn’t have to cut the invitations at all or worry about what our printer would do (or, you know, buy a printer because we don’t actually own one) We printed at Staples, glued, put those suckers in envelopes and were done.

Once we had a printer, we started the process.  We placed an order with Kimi for the Woodland Love invitations she had designed for the APW contest held last spring.  We ordered linen finish paper from Paper and More.  We arranged for team wedding to get together to assemble our invitations.  I designed an invitation suite with the lazy-girl’s answer to a pocketfold – a cardstock backing with a pocket folded up on the bottom, to hold the RSVP card and directions information. (Note: this could not have been easier.  For a 5×7 invite, cut a 5.25 x 9.5-ish strip of cardstock, then fold the bottom up.) I also designed our RSVP card and rehearsal dinner invitations, because we couldn’t afford to pay for those as well as the invitation itself.  I made an epic trip to AC Moore to buy stamps and adhesive, so that we didn’t run out of anything. (For adhesives, I recommend a super-sticky glue stick or rubber cement, and glue lines.  Also, a good tip is to overbuy and then return the unused supplies later, rather than purchasing not-quite-enough and running out.)

“While the womenfolk assembled the invitations, my husband gathered addresses and printed addresses out onto envelopes. They looked really nice and wound up being pretty low-stress. ” This only works in a low-stress way if your family actually keeps addresses. Here I am 3 weeks to the wedding and I STILL don’t know where some of these people live! Some I can call, others do. not. have. telephones. Because they live in the dark ages. Otherwise lovely DIY. Thanks! Wish I had it 6 months ago when I printed my invites.

We weren’t originally planning to DIY our invitations, but when I saw the contest winner’s designs from Printable Press here on APW, I fell in love.  I hadn’t found anything else that was quite right for our nature centered wedding, so even though I hadn’t wanted to DIY our invites, we wound up doing it anyway, at least sort of.

Our sister-in-law drew a lovely tree and stump which was then scanned in high resolution. I put together the format of the very simple invitations in Apple’s Pages Software. We purchased cardstock, a $19 paper cutter, some adhesive tape, and we were ready to go print on our home standard HP Inkjet Printer that I bought in college. The results were beautiful and it was quite inexpensive. We also DIYed the rest of the paper products for our wedding the same way including the programs, menus, seating cards, thank you cards, and signs.

For our San Francisco invitations (now void due to severe left turn in our plans), I got paper from several different places, depending on the purpose. I ended up buying the precut linen cardstock we used from Envelopper Inc. because they had a wider variety of sizes, and I had a pile of smaller-than-standard-wedding-size envelopes I wanted to use up (because I already had them and free is better than Not Free). I really liked the quality.
