Buying/Finding A Design: If you don't have design experience, and you're not fond of pushing images and text around on pages (aka, does the idea of designing a flyer for a Bake Sale or some other event excite you, or does it make you hide under your desk?), you're going to need to find someone to design your DIY wedding invitations for you. Fear not! Thanks to the Internet (and Etsy, bless), there are tons of places to get an invitation design. Some are even our sponsors! Here's a short list of places to check out.
Then order lots of samples, as you might totally change your mind when you see them, or suddenly be inspired by the best bits of different samples. The Wedding Crafter's 'Design your own wedding invitations kit' is a pack designed to give beginners chance to have a play with different card shapes, inserts, ribbons and embellishments that can be tailored to suit any wedding colour scheme.
