A little bit of experimenting was in order while writing this blog, surrounding ourselves with glitter, flowers, lace, ribbon, and wooden hearts – all things girly!
Firstly, I layered the different card colours, beige and red then beige and gold. I then went on to experiment with glitter writing and placed the decorations around the card. The process was simple and fun! This method allows you to design a unique, one-of-a-kind invite, keeping the cost low and you stress free!

The best part about DIY is that it can be done in your spare time. Grab a glass of bubbly, get your bridesmaid over and create these simple, elegant invitations.
Step 1: Decide on a colour scheme and a couple of fonts. These are easily accessible online (I recommend Pintrest for ideas).
Step 2: Use a word document to type up and layout your invites. Once you are happy with them, print them off onto card.
Step 3: Use either lace or ribbon to match your colour scheme. Stick or tie them on and you’re ready to send! You’re welcome.
So, bride to be – have we inspired you? Get creating, stay unique and more importantly have fun!
