If your couple are budget-conscious, there are of course also less-expensive options for distinctive invites. But DIY wedding cards is a good suggest that you can crafted on your computer.
For those who have the ability to craft –or are willing to learn– you can cut the cost of personalized invitations even more. There are many books dedicated to crafting and creativity for weddings, including suggestions on invitations.
In this digital age, computer crafting may be the way to go. You can create your own custom wedding invitation with no more than some quality cardstock, a color printer, and an Internet connection. There are ample resources for wedding clip art, card and invitation templates, card software programs and interactive card sites.
If you are making your own invitations, you may be able to put them off a bit, but if you are ordering custom wedding invitations, plan to do so earlier rather than later. Custom cards may take significantly longer to receive than factory customized cards, especially for individually painted or other one-of-a kind invitations.
Once you have an idea of what you are looking for in your invitation, you may want to request samples from a few designers, which are usually available for a minimal fee, to see what you like best. Allow several weeks to receive the samples. Keep in mind that some custom card makers may require a deposit at the time of the order.
You may enjoy this process of creating your own wedding invites, although it may spend more time than shopping for it. You want to let your wedding has a unique start.
