Yes…I have! Seriously it saved me a ton of money and time. They are very easy to use and you can edit them however you like. I found a package deal through ebay for $20. It included templates for invitations, save the dates, menus, wine labels and the ceremony program. However I found a ceremony program download on etsy that I loved and used and I believe it was $12. I loved both purchases and have received many compliments on them! 🙂

If you have an iPad there is a free app called makr which is fantastic!! Free to design and then you pay a few dollars for the digital file, or they can print for you (at what seems like a really cheap cost). there are pre made templates with all the different inserts/menus/programs etc, but they are 100% customizable. Or you can start one from scratch.

Adobe offers 30 day trials for their products. I used adobe photoshop, illustrator and indesign for our suite and programs. I’m a graphic designer though, so I had the software already.

HeartsandSparkles:  I used microsoft publisher to make all my stationery. They have templates that you can use for invitations, menus, place cards etc that you can use as a starting point 🙂

HeartsandSparkles:  we purchased invites and response cards from WPD, but I made everything else. I used the same two fonts on our invites in our Field Guide (program). I used Adobe Illustrator CS4 (super outdated, but it’s what I had) and pinterest and google searches to find looks I liked and then adapted them for our needs. Our Field Guide included 16 pages (quarter sheet): Welcome, John Muir quote, ceremony program, wedding party, timeline for the day, menu, kissing menu, map of the grounds, games/activities list, nearby wineries list, map of wineries, scavenger hunt, guest hunt (2 pages), photo hunt, and thank you. I used screen captures of the components of our invitations throughout the various signage I made.
