Editor's Pick: Do-It-Yourself Invitations Editor's Pick: 2009 DIY Wedding InvitationsWe review and experience hundreds of wedding services every week; very few have ever impressed us so thoroughly and so immediately, as Montréal-based DIY Wedding Invitations by Envelopments. Quality & value, style, presentation & attention to detail, enthusiasm, professionalism & great customer service... our kudos to them!

They actually provide a full menu of wedding services in the local Montréal market, including wedding planning, décor & rentals. But it was their online wedding invitation store (available to all canadians) that prompted us to declare them one of our Editor's Picks, for their DIY Invitation offerings.

  2. You select the outer layer, it can be
    • a pocketfold,
    • a portable pocket,
    • a gatefold,
    • a folded card,
    • or just a single cardstock layer.
  3. You choose a cardstock layer on which to print your invitation text.
  4. You also have to decide
    • if you want all the information on the printed invitation layer.
    • or you will have separate inserts for maps, directions, activities (for out-of-town guests) and information on the different wedding events that will be taking place.

Invitation Design for Beginners and Do-it-Yourselfers

Using the first diagram above as a guideline (click it!), you can choose to purchase as few or as many parts of the invitation as you wish. Mind you, this sample invitation consists only of paper materials. Depending on your budget and the amount of time you have, you can choose to add ribbons or even crystals to enhance the design of your invitations. (You will also need basic craft tools such as a paper cutter and adhesives to assemble the layers together)

Also, to help you get started, look at the two worksheets with different invitation styles that will give you ideas for your own invitations. From a single layer invitation to one with many different layers and inserts, as well as ribbons and crystals, mix and match the designs and you will have a personalized invitation that will surely wow your guests!
