Whether it is rustic wedding themed invites or vintage styles, when it comes to wedding invitations the options available are certainly not limited.

The main consideration, however, will be if you choose to make them yourself or purchase some beautiful, pre-selected styles.

So, what will your choice be? Will you be getting craft scissors and glue guns at the ready to make your own or will your wedding invitations be created for you?

Country House Wedding Venues has teamed up with Paula Gorry, from Stampin Up and wedding stationery expert, Lily Anna Rose, to give you a selection of options available for any summer wedding invitation.

Stampin Up

Paula Gorry, UK Business Development Manager, Stampin’ Up! UK gives her advice on DIY wedding invitations.

“Making your wedding invitations is a prime example of reigning in the costs. If you are going to embrace this type of project, one great tip is to make sure that you start off by selecting your colour pallet.

“From here you can work out your design. Depending on the number of invitations you need to make, you may choose to go for a simple project, or if you’re planning a smaller wedding you may want to challenge yourself and try something more elaborate.

“Whatever you decide, I would encourage you to seek out products that coordinate to achieve a consistent and more professional look. Adding simple embellishments such as ribbon or buttons, for example, will enhance the overall look of your handmade wedding invitation.”
