“I Do…It Yourself”: DIY Wedding Invitations

They may be a fun party, but weddings can also be very expensive. DIY weddings are growing in popularity because they help couples cut down on the sometimes astronomical cost of hosting a wedding.

Designing and printing your own invitations is a great way to cut down on the cost of your stationery, and it can also help add a personal touch to your correspondence. To help get you started, we’ve rounded up a few stellar printables and resources for the DIY bride.

Always In Season

Summer is the unofficial wedding season, but there’s something timeless and elegant about winter weddings, and you can’t help but be charmed by the colors of autumn or the fecund beauty of spring. Choosing an off-season wedding date can instantly reduce the overall cost of your big day.

The season you choose to get married in can have an impact on your color scheme, including your stationery. Whether you choose your wedding themed based on a particular color, season, or style, The Paper Mill Store has a selection of wedding paper collections that will perfectly complement your unique tastes and the tone of your wedding.

Get Inspired

In addition to getting married in the off-season months, designing and printing your own invitations is a great way to cut down on costs, and it can also help to express yourself creatively as a couple.
