Where Will I Find The Time?

And I know what some of you will say. "Planning a wedding is time consuming and stressful. When will I have the time to make my own wedding invitations?" Simple. Get help.

It takes time to research different invitation vendors and artists. You then have to take the time to pick out and order the invitations as well. It could take just as much time, maybe even less, to take a trip to the arts and crafts store to pick out papers and supplies. Save even more time by picking them online. Then you just have to come up with a design and make just one invitation. Next enlist the help of some of your most creative friends and family members. While you are busy with all of the other details of planning a wedding your friends and family can help you out by taking over the assembly of your invitations.

Still worried about time issues? Here are some ways to help speed up the process:

  • Use blank cards to make your own wedding invitations. Many of the ideas on this site can be made using blank cards. Just print onto the outside and then decorate the inside.

  • Utilize the services of a local copy shop to help get the text on paper. You can also have your invitation cut and folded. It is inexpensive and fast.
