When couples, particularly the brides, begin to go through the large albums of wedding invitations, some of them start to realise that their budget limits them to the type of wedding invitations that they have always dreamed about. As such, many couples find themselves contemplating whether or not they should make their wedding invitations themselves, or whether they should hire a professional to design and print the invitations for them.
Keep in mind that invitations do have an important job. No matter how carefree or nontraditional you and your fiancé are, the invitation should include the date, time and location of the wedding and the reception. If you expect a response from your guests, it is also important to include a self addressed envelope with postage included. As long as these important pieces of wedding etiquette are adhered to, you can be as unique and nonconforming as you like with the rest of the invitation.
