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.
There are some extra stationery things that are required when ordering invitations. RSVP cards are required if couples are having a sit down dinner. Couples need to know the guest count to figure out how much food to order. It is no longer tradition to pay for postage for guests to send the RSVP card back to the couple. Send invitations early to give guests plenty of notice about the wedding. They should be sent out at least two months before the wedding and no more than four months before. Make the RSVP date between four and six weeks before the wedding. This helps you know exactly how many guests will show up.
