When making your own wedding invitations, here are some things to consider: Colors. It is important that you have your colors chosen before you embark on this journey of making your DIY wedding cards. You have just about a million choices when it comes to choosing colors. There are monochromatic color schemes in which your colors are shades of the same color. You can have complementary color schemes in which your colors are opposite of each other on the color wheel, such as yellow and blue or red and green. You can also have analogous color schemes where your colors are next to each other on the color wheel, such as blue and red or blue and green. In this case, you can use one color as the main color and another as an assisting color. When choosing colors for your wedding cards, you might also want to consider the season in which you will have your wedding. Will it be warm or cold? Warm colors are yellows, reds, and oranges. Cold colors are blues and greens.
