FREE DIY Watercolor Wedding Invitation Template

Ever since my own wedding, I’ve fallen in love with all the aesthetics of weddings, from stationary to flowers and decor. There’s something just so romantic and beautiful about all the little details. You’ll know about this if you follow me on Pinterest, where I have 5 boards dedicated to the all different aspects of weddings alone!

Today I have a gorgeous free DIY wedding invitation template to share with you guys from Download & Print. It features elegant die-cut silhouette with mixed with the whimsical look of watercolor flowers for a perfectly pretty look.

Die-cut wedding stationery sits toward the top of the invitation scale in terms of luxury, look, and cost. They come in all sorts of shapes, from intricate cut-out overlays, to pretty frame shapes. The invitations are usually cut-out with a machine – which is very costly – but the end result is oh-so-gorgeous. Creating this Download & Print version of a die-cut invitation requires no expensive machines. Your weapon of choice: Scissors. And with a little time and effort you can achieve a high end look that is gasp-worthy.

You may be thinking that DIYing a die-cut invitation will take as much effort as passing on the last cupcake, but I’m here to tell you it’s surprisingly quick and painless. Each invitation does need to be hand cut (this is a faux die cut invitation), but your scissor skills will surprise you. It’s worth a little extra effort to save a bunch and get a beautiful die cut invitation. Well, faux die cut that still looks a million bucks and will have everyone oohing and ahhing.

I don’t recommend tackling 100 invitations on one night. This is a DIY where being prepared will pay off (and avoid hand cramps). Print the invitations well in advance and trim a few each night. If you are tight on time call together your maids and divvy up the job. It’ll be finished in no time!

How to make this DIY wedding invitation

  1. Download the free wedding invitation template, and save the file to your hard drive.
  2. Open the template in MS Word and replace the placeholder text. The file can also be amended in Pages.
  3. Print on cardstock, the heaviest paper your printer will handle without jamming is best, or send to a copy shop for printing.
  4. Trim around the invitation outline. (The cut line will be hard to see on your screen, but will show up when printed.)
  5. Stuff the invitation, along with your RSVP and enclosure cards, into an A7 envelope for mailing.

TIPS FOR TRIMMING: I used a paper cutter to first trim the straight sides, then I roughly cut around the details at the top and bottom. When cutting 90 degree angles always cut into the corner from both directions. This will give you sharper corners and will reduce the risk of tearing the paper as you will avoid rotating your scissors in the corner. When cutting curves hold your scissors steady and rotate the paper. This will help to create smooth lines. And remember, your cutting doesn’t need to be perfect!
