I didn’t use the BRIDE kit. Do they have a template you can download? I was able to go to the site that did my invites and get the template for free . Really simple! If not, I would experiemtn a little, if you have enough extras.

Hi Emilymuchnikoff!  I used the black and white damask patterned BRIDES invitations— What you can do is get a ruler and measure the patterned paper’s width and then measure the white paper’s width.  Subtract the second measurement from the first.  Then, let’s say for example, you have 2 inches difference, you would just go 1 inch in on each side. to get it centered.  I did that and then just eye-balled to make sure the top and bottom was even.  Or, you can look at the example on the front and see where they lined theirs up and try to do yours the same.  Not sure if any of that made sense…. Seems like it did when I was typing it, but reading it back I’m not so sure… Good Luck!!

I’m lazy, so I’d probably just eyeball it and call it a day! But, Mrs Smith had a pretty good suggestion about using a ruler – that’s probably the best way to get it as accurate as possible!

That’s really helpful – thanks!  It had never occurred to me to tape the template to something like the desk, but I can see how that would really help!
