Budget DIY Wedding Invitations

A tight budget doesn't mean you have to compromise on style for your wedding invitations. And a cheap price doesn't mean your cards need to look cheap!

Here we show you 4 very different ideas for wedding invitations for under 75p per invite - including one at under 25p. All are simple to make

  • Square edge organza ribbon (shown here in old gold)

Print your insert using your PC and printer and attach into the central panel of the card. Mark the centre point on the reverse of the card and place a thin line of adhesive (tape pen or PVA) across the back to hold the ribbon in place. Attach the ribbon and tie in a bow at the front.
