Designing My Wedding Invitation - Part 1

Yes, I am getting married! There is nothing more exciting than that, but planning my big day can be stressful. You have to spend a lot of time looking for the perfect venue, finding a photographer and videographer, florist, make up artist, hair stylist, the list goes on...

Neither my fiancé nor I wanted an extravagant wedding, instead we are looking to have an intimate and tasteful wedding. My opinion is, as important as the day is to us, it is just not sensible to splash a big fortune on one day that put you in debt for the years to come. A carefully managed and wisely budgeted wedding can just be as memorable!

From this post on, I'm going to write a series of wedding related posts. I want to do this for myself, so that in the future, I can come back and read what I've written and re-live this experience over and over again.

My recent project is to design and order our wedding invitation. After considering the costs from bespoke wedding stationery suppliers as well as affordable ones, we decided to order our basic wedding invitations from a budget supplier, then customise and do some DIY job to add some personal touches!

I came across this supplier called Pure Invitation and here are a few of my favourite designs below.

They just look so classy and elegant, so it is going to be hard for us to choose which style to go with. Personally I prefer the first style, but in a simple fold instead of a pocket fold. Then of course, they all come with a pretty high price tag!

I found this supplier on ebay here who offers versatile styles with affordable prices. The good thing is, they can customise all the designs to your requests.

So far I quite like this design below -

I asked them if we can get the size of the swirl patterns reduced, they said no problem! So I'm pretty chuffed about that. I'm thinking to order from them, and add a thin lace and satin bow myself to achieve a similar design to the first style.

We are going to make a decision tonight. I can't wait to get started!
