One of the prevailing developments in wedding planning, over the last few seasons, has of course been the whole "do-it-yourself" trend. So we're always on the lookout for easy, fun and affordable ways to get you DIY-ing - invitations being the obvious starting point; it's the first thing you need to organise, as soon as you set your wedding date!

When it comes to DIY invitations, there are a number of great options available to Canadians, online or locally, custom, even digital; but the preeminent quick-and-easy, affordable-yet-great-looking solution has long been Wilton's "Print Your Own" line.

How Wilton Print-your-Own DIY works..

They are a simple and fast "plug-and-play" option to creating beautiful and professional wedding invitations on your own. Each kit contains everything you need to get going, from the invitation to the reply itself.

Wilton also provides the templates, the wording and the fonts; so all you have to do is download the appropriate information from their website and print from the comfort of your home (using an inkjet or laser printer).


  • These invitations are available in a multitude of styles ranging from the simple to the embellished.
  • Plus, each box contains all you will need for the invitation assembly. For example, if the sample showed the invitation having a bow, the box will contain pre tied bows ready for you to stick onto your invites with the foam squares that are also included!
How easy is that?

More Options?

The ever popular pocket style invitations with multi-purpose cards are also offered by Wilton.

"Pocket invitations are invitations that feature the wedding invite but that also have a side pocket where additional cards and envelopes are housed."..

The extra cards come in three sizes so one can sit behind the other and be seen when inserted into the pocket. The smallest card is used as a reply card while the other two often serve as cards for maps, available hotel accommodations, reception instructions, general info, etc.
