Every year we get a number of brides who contact us to make their Invitations after attempting to DIY their own,
and while in the process realise that even though they want the look of the Handmade Invitations
often what they ended up with was the “Home-made” Invitation..
Is there a difference?
In one word…
Before we begin, let’s define Handmade and Homemade.
Having been raised by a super DIY diva (my mum!!) she said to made sure that if making something from scratch,
it looks beautifully handmade and not just something that looks like its been thrown together as an afterthought.
It’s important to focus on the details when you’re making something on your own however do not get
too obsessive over it.
Your personal style should shine through, but there are some simple steps you can take to make sure
that what you’re sending out looks like a million bucks.
Research Research Research!!!
Spend time browsing invites that you really adore. Browse through all the invitation suppliers websites.
They are great for getting ideas from and even if you don’t see anything you love take the bits from each invite you do like and use them to create your dream invitation.
Perhaps it’s the simple design of a rose , the sheen of the pearlescent paper
or it’s a beautiful bit of lace hugging the recycled paper that introduces your eco-chic celebration;
whatever inspires you will help the process of keeping this DIY project beautiful.
