Customized Wedding Invitations Don’t Have To Cost a Fortune

DIY Invitation Ideas

Getting married is one of the most important times in a person’s life. It’s so important that you want everyone in your life to come be a part of it. You want all your friends and family to be in attendance to see the ceremony and you’ve got all kinds of plans for the reception and the ceremony that you want to share with everyone. Plus, with a little bit of realism creeping in, you want to know who will show up, so having customized wedding invitations is high on your agenda.

The drawback to having invitations made is they can be horrendously expensive. And they can take forever to get made too. First, you have to spend forever going through books filled with sample invitations to find a style you like. Then you have to find the font that looks best. After that, you’ve got to come up with the wording for it. After all that work, you have to wait for a sample to be made so you can approve it. Or make changes.  This can take weeks to accomplish before you get your invitations. Then you have to stuff the envelopes and mail them out.

Making your own customized wedding invitations cuts out a lot of the expense and even more of the hassle factor. Granted, you still have to pick out the invitations, but instead of book after book, you can go online and sort through them much quicker. You may think that getting all the set up done will be a nightmare, but with the templates you download for Word or WordPerfect or whatever word processor you’re using, it’s actually very easy. You can sit down with the template and work with it and the wording until it looks right and sounds right and print off your own sample in a matter of minutes. If you need to make changes, it only takes seconds to make them and see how it looks. After that, all you have to do is hit the print button and you’ve just made your very own customized invitations that look exactly how you want them to look.

Another great aspect of this is if you need to print more, then you print more. You’ve already got it finished and printing more only takes a couple of minutes. That way if you’ve come up with more people you want to invite, then you can send them invites in a timely manner without having to wait for the print company to send you a new batch. And you can print exactly as many as you need. Print companies expect you to order in groups of 50 which means if you need 51, you’ll have to buy 100.

Printing your own customized wedding invitations is truly the easiest and most economical way to start your wedding off. You’ll appreciate the fact you’ve got total control over how the invitation looks, plus you’ll be grateful to have the money you’ve saved for other things you’ll need.
