Wedding invitations – Mrs MSquare’s – Part 1

I am helping my friend plan her wedding this November.

Because I love design (or was I temporarily high on sugar??), I volunteered to design her wedding invitations.  Crazy me! I have never made any wedding invitations, only wedding programs (once!) but she is such a sweet girl (oh no, am delirious…did I just type those words?) and she accepted and even encouraged my efforts!

So I went on a search of templates and instructions on designing, editing and printing wedding invitations.

After lots of brainstorming,  THE bride (Mrs. MSquare) and I came up with the following main criteria:

  1. Invitation theme to match Mrs MSquare’s wedding colors
  2. Template must be fun (did I mention that the bride-to-be is C-R-A-Z-Y?)
  3. Template must be balanced (the groom’s cool attitude is legendary)
  4. Simple design for easy printout
  5. It must include one of their lovebird pictures

I browsed multiple web links of wedding invitations and templates and below are the top 3 tips I found helpful in my quest to design Mrs. MSquare’s invitations:

  1. Offbeat Bride: lots of links to useful ideas for cards, invitations, decorations, etc.
  2. Download&Print: great selection of printing style and envelopes/papers
  3. Project wedding: DYI monograms etc.

On the next series on the “SissiWedding” category, I will post the designs and steps, as well as the bride-to-be’s reaction…stay tuned!

Have you had to design wedding invitations by yourself? Any tip you could share?  We would love to hear from you!
