I made our invitations for our wedding. I bought the clip art on etsy and put it together in photoshop. I printed and assembled them at home. It took a bit of time, but I really like how they came out. Good luck!

I’m a graphic designer so I designed all the details, including the little “you’re invited” sticker. The mountain range at the bottom is a landmark of the town we live in. They went out in these cool envelopes that were white, but had a slightly raised woodgrain texture to them. There are various gold foil elements that are a little hard to capture in photos, but look really neat in person.

I designed, printed, cut, glued, etc our wedding invitations. It was a labor of love for sure but I had wine by my side to keep me sane!

I made the template for the pocket on the back of a cereal box, traced and hand cut them.  Designed the actual inserts in word and had them printed at staples.

I definitely recommend Etsy for the actual design. There’s sooooo many different styles to choose from there’s all different price ranges.

I bought an instant download invitation suite of Etsy that was super affordable that had all the inserts I needed. I just downloaded the files and customized the wording and had them printed on ivory card stock. Then I got some thin ribbon that matches my wedding colors and assembled all the inserts together.

My Maid/Matron of Honor hand painted the flowers, then scanned them into the computer and used photoshop to arrange them. We picked the font and wording together. I had them printed using catprint.com and bought a ribbon to finish them.
