Making your own wedding invitations can save you a bundle and create a personal touch for the big day. Today I'm sharing with fellow DIY brides a free printable wedding invitation template set. This set includes matching invitation, reply card, and accommodation card templates. With basic card stock and your home printer you too can make this adorable wedding stationery set. I designed this card with cheery blossoms and birds because they are both symbols of love and new beginnings.
What you'll need to make this project:
- printable wedding invitation template <– download
- 8.5 x 11 Card Stock (I used #65 in cream)
- Microsoft Word (Mac or PC)
- Color Printer
- Paper Cutter
- A7 Envelopes (invitation)
- 4-Bar Envelopes (RSVP)
Step #1: Download the Templates
Get the three template files for this project. Save them to your computer desktop and open in Microsoft Word.
Step #2: Add Your Wording in Microsoft Word
Open the template files in Microsoft Word. Click inside the text boxes and type in your wedding details. You can select your favorite font and adjust text colors. I like to use a script font for the bride and grooms names and the rest in a simpler font. The fonts I used in the example are Splendid and Trojan Pro.
Step #3: Print on 8.5 x 11 Card Stock
Load card stock into the paper tray and print the templates. Print one of each to start and make sure you like how the final product looks. Have a second set of eyes check your spelling and event details. Nothing is worse than a bunch of invitations you can't use!
Step #4: Trim with Paper Cutter
Using a paper trimmer, cut along the dotted lines marked on the template. Make sure to hold the paper against the top ruler edge of the trimmer for perfectly straight cuts. With a little practice you can begin to cut 3-5 sheets at once, speeding up your production time. Repeat this process for the RSVP and enclosure cards.
Step #5: Select Envelopes & Mail Out
The invitation is sized for an A7 envelope and the RSVP pairs with 4-Bar envelope. These can easy be found online in tons of colors. I think that antique gold, aqua, or rose pink envelopes would look nice with this design.
