Embellishments. Every little detail on your DIY wedding invitation counts. That's why when you are making your own wedding invitations, you should consider adding embellishments. Embellishments that have been used in DIY wedding invitations are feathers (tucked behind a ribbon), paper flowers (you can find these premade in craft stores), fabric and ribbons. If you want, you can also add paper butterflies, rhinestones, confetti, buttons, or dried and pressed leaves and flowers. You can find all of these items in your local craft stores.
Do you have to use light colored card stock? _ The selection of colors in card stock has never been wider. Cards are available in many shades of greens, blues, pinks and browns. Depending on the look that you are going for, you may choose a subtle pastel or a vibrant bold color for your card stock. Generally, couples who are looking for a more traditional wedding invitation will choose a lighter color, as will those planning a casual ceremony. For those planning a contemporary ceremony or a more formal affair, bolder colors are a more common choice.
