Free/Cheap DIY wedding invitation templates... HELP?!
I'm set on DIY wedding invitations with the whole RSVP cards, invitations, programs, etc. that will look like a professional did them. I already know WHERE I want to get my invitation papers (www.cardsandpockets.com) but I haven't found any designs that have WOW'D me yet. Does anyone know of any places that aren't super expensive or free by chance? We're on a budget but I still want the wedding to look nice and not cheap.

How many do you need too order? What is the budget?


Have you just googled "wedding invitations" and found something you like?
Even if it is the wrong color?

For $54.20
I can show you how to get 100 invites, 100 rsvp cards, return labels and envelope seals... all custom and matching

I need about 150 max! And, hi, Hayley! Its been awhile. I've been gone so long from here you probably don't remember me but thank you so much for helping! If you could show me, that'd be lovely because as creative as I am, I'm just not understanding how to do the invitations from home. I want to make them look like a professional did them and I am failing miserably lol so thanks so much!

150 invites! That is about 300 guests!
Are you inviting that many people, or did you forget it is one invite per house?

Can you pull an invite... Any invite off google that you like.

And what colors do you like?

Thanks ladies for the sites! I've tried weddingchicks.com but for some reason, I can't fully get my info to go on the invites so I gave up!

colors? What mood/atmosphere are you going for.

Flowers, leaves, vines?
Swirls, damask?
big bold colors and images?
simple with a monogram?


Which one did you like from wedding chicks?
or something on google? Google "Wedding invitation" and hit the "image" sort on the left hand side.

Colors: Cornflower blue & black

I love the monograms. Fiance's last name starts with a J. Our first initials are J & S (if needed).
I like the fancy lettering and I'd like an upscale formal look or a retro look. I'm pretty open honestly.

I would recommend paying a pro to design them for you. There are a few designers on here who offer custom designs for a reasonable price, and you can print them yourself, or wherever you like. You can find someone near you by using the local search tool for invitations.
