Super Simple Wedding Invitations

by | Inspired Plans, Weddings



DIY Invitation Tutorial

Planning a wedding with just 25 guests meant I only needed 15 invitations. I wanted something super simple, yet easy on the eye. I scoured the internet high and low and came up with these. The card and stock came from Straight Home.

I got this fabulous Rubber Stamp Set from Curly Tree and the inkpad from Officeworks.

To achieve the super simple effect, I used fonts The Only Exception and Mrs Eaves Roman.

The Kraft Tags were from Paper Cotton Love and I found the twine at The Reject Shop!

For under $100 I have enough supplies for: Invitations, RSVP cards, welcome letters, order of service cards, menus, guest book, favour tags & thank you notes.

Ms Gingham says: Oooo I love these! I can imagine such an elegant and sophisticated event is on it’s way. And the twine and kraft tags suggest a hint of rustic charm too! But I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

    I love the invitations. I wondered if you could tell me what size card you used and the size of the kraft tags. Also what colour is the card. They are truely beautiful and I would like to try and create something similar for my wedding.
    Thanks so much

    This is a wonderful idea. I’m totally making something like this! <3

    Do you have a way of telling me sizes? Of the tags, the cards… I will buy these things online – and I'm afraid of getting them and finding out that letters are too big for the tags or tags are too small for the cards… 😀

    Thank you so, so much!
