A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post on how I created my wedding invitations, 100% DIY! And they were GORGEOUS! Today, I’m going to talk a little bit on my favorite way to personalize wedding invitations, so they’re not only 100% DIY, but so they’re 100% YOU!
My favorite way to personalize wedding invitations is with custom address return stamps. You can search on Etys and found a number of shops that make them. Just search for personalized return address stamp. I’m all about branding your wedding (maybe that’ll be a future post!) so if you have a theme to the day, try and find a stamp that goes with the theme. Josh and I had a rustic barn wedding, so of course our return address stamp had a mason jar on it. I still use that bad boy today! Actually used it to stamp all our christmas cards! I suggest you purchase a self-ink stamp because it’s less messy, and you don’t have to keep inking the stamp every couple times you use it.
A second way that you could personalize wedding invitations is by creating a little tag that goes around the invites like I did. Your wordage could be whatever you want it to be. Mine said “Handmade with Love. Loren + Joshua July 18th, 2014” It was tied around the wedding invitations so it was hard for. I also bought a small heart paper punch and had enough room on the tag to punch the heart.
Create a 3×3 card with a personalized message on it. If you have a wedding hashtag, you can make a small 3×3 card to include with your invites encouraging people use that hashtag at the wedding. My 3×3 card explain that Josh and I were having an unplugged wedding so we asked that guests like their cameras and phones in the purses or pockets. Maybe this 3×3 card has a professional hand drawn map to your venue if it’s difficult to find.
