DIY And Homemade Wedding Invitations

Add Your Homemade Wedding Invitations?

We'd love for you to add your own ideas and tutorials to our gallery! By filling in the forms below you can add your very own page to!

What Are We Looking For?

Well, first and foremost, we want to check out your creative prowess! We want to see everything from the most simple of handmade invitations, to your most creative and unique ideas!

Many of our readers ask what they should include in their submission. So here it is - keep in mind that you do not have to include all of this. But here's some suggestions:

  • Pictures! Yes, we love loads of pictures! Make sure they are clear, though. If they look too dark or are taken from too far away, it is hard for our readers to gain much inspiration.
  • Tell us about products and supplies you used. This is so super helpful to others who are new to taking on creative projects like these.
  • Pricing breakdown. Don't you just love it when you see just how affordable an invitation suite really is when the cost is broken down! When you plan ahead you really can save a boat load!
  • All about sizing. A common question from our readers. People like to know exactly what size to cut papers and other pieces, envelopes, etc.
  • Fonts! What is that fantastic font and where did you find it?

The more you divulge when you share your homemade wedding invitations the better!

Guidelines and Rules:
  • Please do not copy and paste a page you built elsewhere. It's OK if you posted your invites somewhere else, but please write brand new, original ideas, comments, and tutorials on your page here at D.I.Y.I.

  • At least one picture must be included. But we whole heartedly encourage many more!

  • Can I add a link to my blog/website? Yes! Absolutely! But please do not make a page purely for advertisement purposes. It MUST be inspiring to other DIYers.
