DIY Free Wedding Invitation Template
Hello. My name is Anna Skye and I am very pleased to meet you. I am excited to be invited over to the Yes Missy! blog today with an exclusive free printable wedding invitation set that I call Lace & Pearls. Invitations may not be the first project that springs to mind when you think wedding DIY. Invitations can, and typically do, take up a nice chunk of your wedding budget, and as they set the scene for your upcoming nuptials it is important to get them right. Don’t let tradition scare you away from a very simple DIY project with stunning results, that is going to save you major $$$.
At Download & Print I help brides worldwide create unique and interesting invitations on a budget. So put on your crafting hat, download the free templates, and follow along with the steps below to create this Lace & Pearls wedding set for yourself, with results that look anything but DIY.
DIY Wedding Invitation Supplies:
- Free printable templates
- 8.5 x 11 cream card stock
- Paper trimmer or scissors
- Navy A7 euro flap envelope (as seen here in Imperial Blue)
- Adhesive faux pearls (found at your local craft or scrapbooking store)
Step 1: Download and Print
Download the three template files and open in MS Word. Customize with your wedding details.
The script font used in the template sample is Respective, and the information text is Perpetua, both of which are available to download for free. If you do not have these fonts installed on your computer Word will substitute different fonts. You can pick any fonts that you like.
Print the files on white or cream cardstock.
TIP: I recommend printing one sample of the invitation and RSVP to check for spelling and punctuation errors. Have a second set of eyes look at the sample before you commit to printing them all!
Step 2: Trim
Using your paper cutter or scissors, trim the invitation, RSVP, and enclosure cards along the cut lines. A paper cutter will be faster and will produce straighter cuts, but scissors will work just fine too.
Step 3: Add the Pearls
Now we are going to test how steady your hand is! Embellish the set with the faux pearls. It’s much easier to do this with tweezers. I chose to place only a couple of pearls on my invitation, I think this is definitely a case where too much bling is not a good thing.
The pearls are not easy to reposition so try to stick them where you want them the first time (trust me when I say use tweezers). If you do place one a little off the mark, all is not lost. You can remove the pearl and dab a little white glue on the back using a toothpick, then stick it back down.
The invitations are now ready for stuffing and mailing!
