Making Wedding Stationery Tip

Saving Money when Making your own Wedding Stationery

This gives you control over your spending and allows you to have special great looking designer stationery even on the tightest of budgets. Low price wedding stationery can still look good - and there is no need to tell your guests how little they cost.

Using decorative papers and your own PC and printer you can create invitations at minimum cost. There are the most beautiful papers now available. Floral papers are great for a summer wedding.

If you like the look of handcrafted cards and have the time, you can save a considerable amount money by making your own rather than purchasing them from a professional designer. Many of these designers started in business because they did their own wedding stationery and enjoyed it so much they wanted to carry on - so you too can achieve fantastic professional results with just a little care and attention to detail.

But, please do remember that you will need to allow plenty of time to make your invitations; make it a special enjoyable time by inviting some family & friends to help out.

Some brides-to-be choose DIY wedding stationery so they can use luxury materials without paying top of the range designer prices. As with any other aspect of your wedding, set a budget and work to it. The good thing about making DIY wedding stationery is that it is easy to make adjustments if necessary.

Here are our top cost cutting tips:

Print the words “Wedding Invitation” directly onto the card instead of using peel-off stickers or foil panels, using a template and a little practise, this very easy to achieve.

If you have lots of wedding invitations to make, think about investing in a card bone folder or scorer and a paper trimmer, then buy flat card to cut, score and fold yourself.

RSVP cards are not always necessary - many people will reply by phone, buy a special card or reply by email.

Make your design easy to follow, remember the term ' less is more', don't make it all too difficult.

Do a little research, and check the resources are readily available, nothing worse than setting your mind on something to find it is soon to be discontinued!

Discount satin fabric for stunning brides and bridal parties. Planning a wedding? You'll find gorgeous, elegant bridal satin in dozens of colors (along with pretty organza, habutae, and chiffon fabric) that will not only make the bride beautiful, but save her money, too!

Wedding Fabric Selection Tip
Bridal satin has evolved a lot over the years. What was once a single expensive natural material (silk satin) is now both a natural and man-made material (polyester satin). Which should you choose? You can take the plunge and spend more on silk satin fabric, but poly satin may make you look just as good, and if you spill a little wedding cake on it, it's hand washable!

Thrifty Wedding Tip
Use lace and fabric to dress up a ring box. It is a great alternative for the ring bearer.
The Papercut Ketubah

The papercut ketubah is the ideal choice for your upcoming wedding. The ketubah, the Jewish wedding contract, can be customized according to your style and taste.

Paper Cutting Tip
To make a papercut, one need only fold a piece of paper, draw a design from the fold (for example, half of a snowflake or half of a menorah, the center on the fold), cut with a pair of scissors (manicure make a fine cut) or a fine knife and open the folded paper. The result is a papercut! You can also photocopy a design, staple it to another piece of paper and cut around the design to create a papercut. The papercut can be painted and mounted on another piece of paper, on cardboard or even on glass. The possibilities are endless---you can play with the positive and the negative to create your papercut and derive much pleasure from this centuries old craft.

Why use fresh flowers when silk will last a lifetime? I personally hand craft these beautiful wedding cake toppers and inserts from silk flowers and greenery. Unlike real flowers, these gorgeous silk flower cake toppers will last forever and make wonderful keepsakes for you and your loved ones! I hope that you will find something special to top your wedding cake!

Crafting Tip
Don't forget the hot glue! Hot glue, or hot melt adhesive (HMA), is a form of adhesive which is intended to be heated to its melting point. Using a glue gun, hot glue can be applied to any sort of surface (plastic, wood, metal, etc) to create a strong and lasting bond. Do yourself a favor: If you're planning a new craft project, take a look at how hot glue can help make things a whole lot easier!
Handfasting Cords by Niamh

Celtic Handfasting Cords specially woven in the traditional Irish way for use in wedding ceremonies. Delivered worldwide.

Traditional Handfasting Tip
A handfasting is a lovely photogenic addition to any wedding ceremony. It is, after all, the origin of the phrase ‘tying the knot.’ It's best to use a handfasting cord of 6 to 8 feet long, so it can be tied around the hands of the couple a few times with room for a knot on top.

Crafting Tip
When you have a piece that need just a little bit extra, a little bit of ribbon can work wonders. It is also extremely useful in hiding unsightly wires and/or knots. In this piece blue ribbon is used to hide the structural wires.
