When the average cost of an American wedding is over $33,000, you may be looking for ways to cut down on costs and be more hands-on. While it’s easy to just purchase things and be done with it, it can quickly add up.
In this article, we’ll tell you how to make your own bridal shower invitations so you can save some money and put your creativity to work.
Use Adobe Spark
Adobe Spark is a free program that lets you create cards and graphics for any event. You may be worried that you need to have experience in graphic design to use it, but that’s not the case at all!
Adobe Spark is designed so that any average person can navigate through the templates and customize them to make them their own. Read on to find out how to create your bridal showers invitations.
Select a Size
The size of your invitation matters. Thankfully, the program has many preset dimensions for things like social media and print. If none of the preset dimensions are to your liking, you can also customize them yourself.
Upload Your Photos
If you have pictures you want to put on the card, this is where to upload them. Otherwise, you can either choose from Adobe’s free stock photos or skip this step.
Design Your Card
In this section, you can go wild with creating your card. Put the text on, edit the colors and font, add icons and logos, and choose from a number of layouts. You can even resize the card if you decide you like another design better.
Send out Your Invitations
Once you’re done creating your card, you can do one of two things. First, you can download the card so you can either print it out or email it to your list.
The other option is clicking on the “share” button. Here, you can share to Facebook, Twitter, or Google Classroom. Or you can generate a link or send the invitation to your mailing list on Outlook.
If you feel like your design is particularly good, you can even publish your project. That way, others can use your card as inspiration, and Adobe may even feature your invitation on their Spark website.
Make Your Own Bridal Shower Invitations for a Personal Touch
When you make your own bridal shower invitations, not only do you save money, but you also add a personal touch to it. Your guests will appreciate that you’ve taken the time to customize your invitations and not send out generic cards.
So instead of splurging on bridal shower invitation cards, put away your wallet and save that cash. Put it toward something more important, like the wedding itself, your honeymoon, or a down payment for your new home. It may not be much money tucked away, but it’s definitely a start.
