Making Your Own Wedding Invitations

Making your own wedding invitations could save you a bit of change, but can also add that personal touch to your wedding.

While making your own invitations could save you money, this is not always the case. If you're planning on making your own, here are a few things you need to bear in mind before you start.

1.) Decide on your invitation. Before you go out and buy hundreds of papers to make your wedding invitations, ensure that you are one hundred percent decided on the style of invitation you want. A lot of scrapbooking shops do not refund you on paper, so first buy one or two to play around with, and once you have created the look you're after, only then should you go out and buy the bulk.

2.) Before you start making your invites, ensure that you can find envelopes to match and fit. It is pointless making 100 unique invitations, only to find that they are so unique that you can't find any envelopes to hold them.

3.) Determine how many invitations you will need upfront. List all the people you would like to invite and group them by family. Send each household family their own invitation and send engaged couples, living at home, their own invitation.

4.) Get extra. When purchasing the paper and embellishments for your invitations, always purchase enough to make ten to fifteen extra invites for those last minute guests and for your own keepsakes. Don't just assume that the paper and your chosen embellishments will be available when you need it next time.

5.) If you are handwriting the invitations, purchase an extra pack of envelopes to make up for spelling and address mistakes you may make. This happens a lot, so don't neglect this tip.

6.) Get a decent adhesive. Consider that ordinary stationary glue is acidic and may destroy the paper of your invites. If you're new to scrapbooking, enquire about the various adhesive options that you could use from the store assistant. The non-acid two-way adhesive tape is an excellent option that binds easily and effectively.
