Textures. You may not think so, but texture is an important aspect of your wedding invitations. Remember, texture is anything you can feel with your skin, and in this case, with your hands. If you can, use embossed or textured paper as a backing. This can add so much dimension and beauty to your wedding invitation. Balance. In art, balance refers to how "heavy" one side of the artwork is to the other. You should use the same concept in your DIY wedding cards.
Go nontraditional _ Some couples balk at the idea of following the strict format of wedding tradition. If you and your future spouse would like to try something different, there is no reason to stick with traditional invitations at all. Print your wedding details on small cards, and enclose them in a small box of chocolates for each guest. Write a love story about you and your fiancé, which culminates in a wedding invitation, and have it printed in booklet form, and mail to your guests. The options are endless, and limited only by your imagination.
