Has anyone made their invitations and order of services? We're on a budget and I want to make mine but have no idea where to start!
Have a look on Pinterest for ideas. I bought card etc from Amazon and made ours. It was very easy and cheap.
I've made mine I got everything off ebay made 100 for under £20.
I'm thinking of making my invites. Not set on it yet but toying with some ideas x
Vista print have some lovely designs and cheaper than other online suppliers I found x
Zazzle is cheap and often there are up to 40% off codes flying around
my mum made our invites she even used the lace of her wedding dress we didnt bother with order of service as they usually get left and binned after was advised by our vicar its a waste of time and money lol these were our invites x
Ours was about £20 bought card and ink from Amazon and designed it on Photoshop
I did! It felt much more personal and special.
I did mine on vistaprint . Love them and foes with my theme x
We designed ours on photoshop then used printed.com they came within a few days. You can order a sample pack of card to make sure you like the card stock first. I then bought the lined envelopes and pocket folds and added my own touch to match my theme. Have to admit we are very proud. Cost about £80 to make and companies quoted me £500 x
I used canva.com to design them then vista print to get them printed because it was cheaper and easier than printing ourselves. We did both our save the dates this way x
I'm making mine! Poundshop for the paper, eBay for the ribbon, then just word document on the computer for designing and printing. It's more personalised and enjoyable! x
I googled ideas then made up my save the dates on my laptop saved it as a pdf then took them to danscot to be professionally printed. Cost me £15 to get 100. I then went to hobby craft and bought cars & ribbon & made 150 invitations for £45.
I used country baskets, the range and hobbycraft to buy materials. Printed the info myself at home. They are all each unique and personal.
Not bothering with an order of service. If you make them yourself do give yourself plenty of time though as it takes a while.
We had templates made on eBay £100 and just made all the inserts and order of service, then decorated it! I actually went to a local printer who printed the lot for £30!
Start with the plain cards. If you have a colour scheme for your day then play around with ribbons, bows and things that colour on a card and see what works, for our evening invitations we simply used evening invitation stickers in the middle and some lace ribbon up the spine and it looks amazing
I made mine, all up they cost me about £18. A lot of evenings were spent doing them but it was worth it for the savings :)
We made our own invites x
I made my own order of service books. Was a bit complicated but I did it
I did. I bought my cards from China on eBay and then just printed inserts off computer and made order of services with same font. So easy and cheep x
Following, hope that's OK :-) I'm making my own got a good ish idea of what to do.. Using die cutter for design selling Facebook pages are great
You can download designs and edit and print out yourself, like these https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ConnieAndJoan?ref=s2-header-shopname
I ordered a pack of ten from a website then photocopied the rest think it worked out about 30 pound in total
I made all of mine, its easy these day - some nice paper
I made mine! Xx
My grandma made mine and they turned out to be amazing. We were on a budget so tried to do a lot of things ourselves or had family members help ... I haven't got a picture but I basically started off with the card matching the colour theme and had a cut out in white of a bride and groom xx
I made our order of service.. but we had our invites made for us.
I agree with vista print though! They make some lovely invite. Our evening invited were made through vista print xx
We are making ours. We looked on Pintrest for ideas and then just bought card from amazon and went from there x
I'm in the process of planning mine! My fiance suggested adding photos of all our friends and family on the invite in a collage form and I love the idea. 😊 I'm going to design it myself and then use somewhere like Vistaprint to print them out !
I made all our invites and order of service from scratch. I paid around £30 for materials and made over 100 invites and 70 order of service, price wise we saved over £500 making them however they did take a long time. I just used a simple Microsoft word to design the inserts etc
I cross stitched my invites, got some delicate paper and printed the words of the invite on it, and then used the same paper to print order of service one
Yea we made ours paper card twine doilies stickers xx
My nana made my invites they were stunning..
I'm making ours. Got the order of service kit from eBay £2 for 10 but am adapting it to suit our day. Also got the invites from paper chase and again adapting it to suit our day x
I made my invites, order of the day, menus and the table plan (with lots of help from my sister) All we used was a computer some card, tissue paper and a cutter from hoppy craft. It's soooo much cheaper and was fun to do too . This is what the invites looked like.
I bought mine after the company printed them, they sent the ribbon, lace and embellishments and I put them together
Halved the cost
We made all of ours and I think they are lovely their is an app called ETSY and we got ours from their we got a PDF and it was so easy to edit and use! We made everything with it! It was around £15 to use as many times as you like and we spent about £20 on everything else we used , I hope this helps! X
I designed ours on power point and got them printed. Much cheaper.
We spent £45 on our invitations from Hobbycraft and hand wrote the front page and printed the address and menu on the blank pages (you can trick your printer into printing onto different size card by using glue dots to stick the card into the top middle of A4 paper- printer thinks it's on A4! Saved us a fortune!)
The range have brilliant things for diy wedding things loads of crafts, kits, more pretty little things you can imagine haha have a look online if you don't have one near ... I could spend hours looking at all the little bits pintrest will have some great inspiration for diy wedding stuff too xx
I'm currently in the process of making ours. I looked on Amazon, Ebay, and Pinterest to get ideas for the ones we wanted then made a few blank ones up of the ones we liked to see how easy they were to actually make. Also start making them nice and early so that you don't have to rush to get them finished. xXx
I've made my order of service. Found a template on Google and used it then printed it off at home
Made my own on the computer, got a nice paper from online and printed our order of service and designed our own invitations printed onto sticky white paper we put onto card that matched our colour scheme saved a fortune, we also got a heart hole punch and tied a ribbon through to hold them together X
Just buy postcards on Vistaprint - you can put whatever design you want on them and they are cheaper than making your own. Wait for a sale, they have them every few weeks. My Save the Dates were less than £10 for 50. and my invites will be about £20 for 50. Couldn't be bothered to spend hours fiddling about with ribbon and glue making them as no one much cares what they look like except you!
I made these. (Have covered the details with congratulations) x
We made ours, used greetingsisland for their free templatea
I made all our stationary for our wedding, much cheaper! Card stock from pocketfold invites online, ribbons, double sided tape and so on off eBay and a decent printer :)
Print and staple with a long armed staple or hand stitch them with a running stitch up and down in your wedding colours
We were lucky in that we know someone who is a graphic designer so she did all our invitations for us. However the order of service we did ourself. The church sent us a template that we used and just printed off on normal paper. The order of service normally gets taken but binned when home so we didn't see the point in spending loads of money! Xxx
We designed and made our own too. We did the invites, order of service, order of the day, table names, seating plan and thank you cards ourselves. We got the card and diamantes from Hobbycraft, the ribbon from Abakhan and the used a blank Word template I found online to get the correct size paper (they were square). They looked fab!
Pinterest! So good for ideas then hobby craft or the range or even eBay for your stuff x
We did basic invites off eBay 4.99 for a pack of 10 then we have a website for rsvp, table plans , hotel booking, meal section and that was free to create :) xx
We have just made our own wedding invites (also on a huge budget) super impressed with the outcome. A little time consuming but well worth it
Seriously, just buy your invites at card factory and spend your money on other things. Whenever I get an invite, I put the date in my phone and chuck the invite in the bin.
Yes handmade both... Easy really,did window opening invite with inserts for church details and reception details, with ribbon bow to keep closed, and order of service booklets with ribbon to hold together (in our wedding colours). Got a stamp and gold ink for title. Simple but looked lovely xxx
I'm going to make my own, and buy all the materials from places like hobby craft x
Card and ribbon came from hobby craft then inserts were from vista print
We made ours, and we had all different photos of us on them. Literally just brought stuff from craft shop and used our printer xx x
I love making wedding stationery and have made them for lots of brides before, but now it's my own wedding, I'm really nervous about it! I've got so many ideas, and will make each one, then decide what to go with, but yes, I will be making all my own xx
We're making our own orders of service but we bought our invitations at paperchase which are really cute X
Optimal print have a discount on, 48% off x
I made mine, less than £1 each
Hello, I made all mine and loves doing them!! People say they look really professional too!! I feel it worked out a lot cheaper doing them myself compared to some of the quotes I was getting!! Good luck!!
I am making ours and made my sister's last year saves tons of money hers came in at under £30. Pinterest is great for ideas and free templates. Buy supplies on EBay or Amazon. Greetings Island also have free templates you can customise and print yourself
I'm sure which ever one of your designs you choose will be the right one. Are you a crafter/card maker Elaine? It is so satisfying isn't it, i used to make cards but tend to just craft now especially at Christmas. Happy designing! XX
I'm currently doing my own.
Just using publisher and downloading stencils and fonts
My mum made our save the date ones on the computer and emailed them to everyone as we live aboard and got married on the beach, then she got some really nice invites in the sale and my Nan wrote them with calligraphy which matched the name tags on the tables xx
These were mine from EBay they start at £1 each. Xx
Made ours using places like hobby craft & ebay! Time consuming but worth it when you're on a budget!
These are my invitations. Very time consuming but I enjoyed doing them and everyone has said they look amazing. Get any help you can though. I pulled in everyone to help it's much easier working together with someone as I found I got bored after so long as we have so many people to invite. X
We bought a pdf design off of etsy and have personalised them. My H2b is having them printed at work, but places such as staples will print them a lot cheaper than paying for already printed ones
