Start with your envelope size, that’s what I did.

We chose an A7 envelope, which a 5×7 card fits nicely into. Then I started designing.

Do you have any designing programs on your computer?

Some things to iron out, before coming up with your DIY invitation design:

* What is your invitation budget?
* Do you require the "formal" style invitation, with an inner and outer envelope? (Or will you cut costs by just using one?)
* Do you prefer the pocket-style invitations, or just the simple printed cards? Both can be very beautiful, if done the right way. (Goccos seem to be the best DIY tool, when making colorful, original invitations)
* Don’t forget to think about your inserts! (i.e. Accommodations, Website Info, Map, etc)
