How DIY are you, really? If you’ve felt the pressure to make your own wedding… [fill in the blank with pretty much anything here] – and your fingers aren’t buzzing with craftitude – then I’m here to show you there are plenty of other options out there.

Yay! wedding invitation by Style & Joy

Contrary to popular belief, making your own wedding invitations won’t necessarily save you money. If you’re photoshopping, printing at home, buying card, trimming, sticking bits on, tying with ribbon etc. you will be spending more than you think and fizzling time away as if you were never that bothered about having a social life in the first place 😉

So stop and reconsider. There are options. Affordable wedding invitations can be fab – oh, and we’re not talking cheap eBay invites here either. Here’s a collection of beautifully designed, nicely printed, good quality wedding invitations which won’t break the bank or indeed you, your nails or your plans for the weekend. Enjoy!

Seeing all of your table plans fascinates me: I’ve already decided I’d be on the Prodigy table for this one… although the choice is fantastic! Nonetheless today’s is a celebration where music really mattered, and it sounds as though the band playing at Stacey and Roger’s festival wedding outshone any of the famous names on the table plan! Today’s is a fab theme, and a gorgeous autumn wedding: I hope you love it as much as I do!

Carol blended in with the wedding guests and captured fantastic photos of them all enjoying the day. Although the posed and group shots are beautiful and just what we wanted, some of our favourites are those where people are blissfully unaware of her presence! She captured so many magical moments that we missed throughout the day.”

“We found the vinyl templates online and made everything else ourselves. It took a bit of time but the end results were definitely worth it as our guests commented that they’d not seen anything like it before!”

So let’s introduce gorgeous bride and groom Amy and Jamie. First of all, I love their rhyming names 🙂 and second of all I adore everything about their whimsical woodland wedding. You will too, I know! There are rustic flowers with exciting textures; fabulous backdrops for stunning portraits, magical romantic moments and let’s not forget Amy and Jamie’s adorable dog Mae in her wedding finery… how cute?!
