Custom Wedding Invitations
When many brides-to-be think of wedding invitations, they think of choosing from premade designs that they simply have reprinted with their wedding information. But custom wedding invitations are becoming more and more accessible. Couples who want truly unique invitations can design their own, or have them designed by an experienced designer.
There are printing services available that will allow you to customize your wedding invitations to your tastes, and then have them printed as desired. Some offer numerous paper and font choices, graphics and other features. You can often add photos or your own graphics to make your invitation design one of a kind.
Handmade wedding invitations are becoming more and more popular. These are made from scratch with fine papers, ribbons, charms and other embellishments. Just about anything that will fit in the envelope can be added. Calligraphy is often used for an elegant touch. Handmade invitations are usually substantially more expensive than regular printed ones, but they offer individuality and beauty that can't be achieved any other way. They also take longer to make, so if you are considering handmade wedding invitations it is a good idea to get them started early.
Crafty brides may want to make their own wedding invitations. This option offers the opportunity to have a unique wedding invitation at a lower cost. Specialty paper stores offer a wealth of paper options, and other supplies can be found in craft stores.
Custom wedding invitations allow each couple's individual tastes to shine through. Whether creating your own or having them designed by a professional, custom work provides a way to make your wedding invitations stand out from the crowd.
