DIY invites

I used the free app Canva to design my save the date and invitations for my wedding which has been postponed now due to Coronavirus. For my save the dates I designed a postcard style template and for the invitation I designed a greeting card A6 format invite. I then used an online printer www.rugbyprinter.co.uk and got 50 invites printed for £24.

I also created a free wedding website with www.withjoy.com that I can manage RSVPs with and it has been really useful for updating the information with regards to our changing wedding date. I made sure the web address for our wedding website was on our save the dates and our invites.

Designing them myself meant I got the exact style and saying that I wanted, especially important as we were planning to have a ceremony abroad so I wanted an ‘elopement celebration’ invite rather than a wedding reception invite. I couldn’t find anything that had the exact wording I wanted.

I also saved a fortune as just getting them printed was a fraction of the cost of buying the invites elsewhere.
