One of the most important elements of your big and unforgettable day is your wedding invitation. Every young couple puts emphasis on this, since this is the first impression for your guests, hinting what the wedding will be like. Moreover, this is something that the guests will keep as a memory. It can be quite difficult to decide on what the perfect wedding invitation should look like and how to make it truly unique, but elegant at the same time. To help you out, we have collected a few great handmade wedding invitations for you. You’ll not only be able to find classic and sophisticated ideas, but also modern and extravagant ones. Naturally, you can get creative and play around with the colour schemes according to your own taste. Now, let’s see which DIY wedding invitation cards you like the best!
1. Snow White Elegance – A Simple, yet Classic Wedding Invitation
Invitations usually give us a peep into what the wedding’s theme and decor will look like. A simple white, sprayed with a bit of beige or pale champagne pink will go well with any other colour. It’s a real classic with an essence of elegance, and it also matches any sort of decoration. This is just one of many gorgeous DIY wedding invitation cards.
2. Elegant bows – Cute DIY Wedding Invitation Cards
If your wedding is going to be decorated with bows, small or large, try using them in the wedding invitations as well. You will be able to create a greater effect, especially if your guests discover that the bows were not only included in the invitations but also used as a form of decoration at the wedding itself. They’re really easy to make and are guaranteed to lend your elegant wedding invitations a charming appearance.
3. A Classic Envelope – Simple Wedding Invitations
Most wedding invitations arrive in the post in a standard envelope. Here’s a great tip if you would like to send out invitations via post, but with a tiny twist. The colour of your envelope can match the wedding decor or the colour of the flowers used on the big day. You can also seal the envelope with a smaller wax seal, to make it elegant and extraordinary. A wax seal can also represent your celebration of love, especially if you press your and your significant other’s initials into it. These are beautiful DIY wedding invitation cards.
4. Openable Invitations – Personalised Wedding Invitations
If you don’t want a typical wedding invitation then this just might be the one for you. These elegant wedding invitations don’t need to be put in separate envelopes, because the front of the card is already so breath-taking in itself. It’s classy with an edge. A good idea on how to design the middle of the card is to write the important information about the wedding on one side, and on the other side, you can attach the response card with an envelope. This way, if replying via post, it will be easier for your guests to respond whether they can make it or not.
5. Refined and Modern – Elegant Wedding Invitations

7. A Puzzling Invitation – A Fun Game for Your Guests
If you’re looking for something more modern and more unique, then you will certainly love this idea. It’s creative and fun. Take out two pieces of the puzzle, placing them together, representing the union of the bride and groom. On the part of the wedding invitation, where the puzzle pieces were taken out, write down the happy couples’ names. We recommend these funny wedding invitations for couples who are up for a bit of fun and are young at heart.
8. Design Your Own Wedding Invitations – A Personalised Wedding Invitation
Wedding invitations play a huge role in giving guests their first impression of the soon-to-be-married couple as well as what the wedding will be like.

9. A Calendar on the Invitation – Creative DIY Wedding Invitation Cards
One of the most essential things, that an invitation needs to contain, is the location and the precise date and time of the wedding. If you want your guests to save the date automatically, you can place a calendar on the invitation and mark the big day with a heart. It will be easy to spot and it will be easy to memorise.

11. A Floral Invitation – Classic Wedding Invitations
When asking people about what pops into their mind when they hear the word “wedding”, decor and flowers will most definitely be amongst the answers.
