FREE Wedding Invitation Template

We went the DIY route for our wedding invitations and I absolutely LOVE the way they turned out! They were put together using a combination of pocketfold envelopes, ribbon, buttons, lace and twine. If you are looking for a vintage or rustic-chic look than you may choose to incorporate all or some of these materials into your own invitations. Brace yourself, this is a looooooong and very detailed post. You may need a cup of coffee…or three.

Update: Due to the amount of information in this post I decided to split it up into several parts, which you can access the via the links at the bottom of this post.

The Fonts & Vectors I used:

You can reference ALL of the fonts and vectors {with links to sources} I used via this post.

How to add text to the templates:

I include a high resolution PNG File set up as 2 per page at the bottom of this post. I used Adobe Illustrator to create our invites, but you can use whatever image editing software you have. Most people that edit the template or purchase designs from my shop, prefer to open the files at picmonkey, unless they have a program they use and are comfortable with, because it tends to be user friendly. You can add your own text with their fonts, or access your own, then re-save and print them out. I would definitely recommend trying that out first before downloading any software you are not used to.

You can view my tutorials on how to add or delete text to the templates using PicMonkey HERE.

Please keep in mind that these are flattened templates, so none of the design elements can be moved, edited or deleted.

Update: Additional Options in the Shop

Due to the number of requests for matching templates, I offer more options in my shop, which is currently being updated as I combine blogs.  The listings in my shop include editable PDFs for Adobe Reader/Acrobat as well as the PNG templates you can edit with PicMonkey. You can also visit my FAQ page for answers to frequently asked questions about the templates in my shop.

“The Details” Enclosure Card:

I’ve received a lot of questions about our details card so I wanted to include some information about that as well. Since most of our information was located on our wedding website, and we were having a fairly small wedding {50 guests}, I decided to ask guests to RSVP via our wedding website, rather than send a separate card and envelope.

You could use a “details” card for directions, accommodations, reception info, things to do, etc. Or you can create separate wedding enclosures such as your RSVP card and envelope, and then another enclosure with a map and directions just as one example. Side Note: If you are looking for a great, FREE, wedding website you should check out wix.com, that’s what we use and it’s my favorite out of all the ones I looked at.

For the details card we cut kraft cardstock sheets into 4 x 5.5 and then printed directly onto the pre-cut sheets. Afterwards we used the Fiskars Corner Craft Punch to add a little detail to each card. Here is what our details card looks like:

The fonts used on The Details Card above are Things We Said and Abadi MT Condensed, which is available here.

Materials used for our Invitations:

This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. View our full disclosure here.

Here is a list of all the materials we used to make the invitations. Most of this stuff we already had, and everything else I either bought online or with coupons at JoAnn’s.

I purchased the lace through this Etsy shop and purchased my buttons from Pick Your Plum when they had a super awesome deal on personalized buttons. I had “happily ever after” engraved on them. Of course, the color and amount of each product will depend on your style preference and how many invitations you need to send out.

InkJet Printer {or print from a local/online print shop}

A7 Peach Metallic Square Flap Envelopes

A7 Steel Gray Himalaya Pocket Invitations

Brown Kraft Cardstock #70lb

White Cardstock Paper

Jute Twine

Narrow Sheer Pink Ribbon

Buttons

2 Sewing Straight Pins

2″scalloped lace

Fiskars Corner Punch: Romantique

Paper Trimmer

CraftBond Repositionable Glue Sticks

Scissors

Avery 2″ Clear Round Labels

mint-border-650px-mountainmodernlife.com

We used the 110lb white cardstock paper because we glued the invitations down onto kraft paper and then onto the pocketfold envelopes. However, if you are using just the invitation, I would recommend printing on the heaviest cardstock paper you can find and afford. The thicker the invitation, the better it will look and feel, just make sure if you are printing from home that you check to see the heaviest cardstock you can put through your printer.

Here is what our wedding invitations looked like all finished, including an enclosure card I created. By the way, you should probably know that technically anything BEFORE 6pm is considered AFTERNOON. This was brought to my attention after I had put evening on our invitations, woops. :) They are your invitations and you can word them however you like, but I figured I should share that little tip of info for anyone that cares. Also, I accidentally left the arrows on our invite facing the wrong direction {boooo}, but did fix it for you in the free invitation download!

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for sharing this and the links to all the fonts and graphic elements! These invites are absolutely gorgeous – you did an awesome job on the design! I’ve just finished putting mine together in a slightly different colour scheme in Illustrator and I have to say I adore them! Thank you so much, they’re perfect for our wedding and I cannot wait to post them out.

    Thanks again,

    Hello! Can I please ask what font you used in the main body of text for the details card? It is pretty! Could I also get the details card and invitation template in a different colour (dark red)? I saw options to buy a different coloured invitation but not for a details card?

    Thank you!

      Thanks for letting me know the font :) Would you please be able to make available (I couldn’t see it in the shop) a Details template in GOLD, and could it please be the details care with the banner going across the top, rather than the one with the wreath? Just because I need as much space as possible to write and I think the banner takes up less space :)

      Thank you!!

    Hi Katie! Stumbled upon your talented creation and was curious if you provide templates with colors that are NOT in your shop. My wedding is in December and the primary colors are charcoal gray and a dusty rose purple, something I call elderberry that I found on Pinterest. Do you provide such a service? Please email me and let me know!

    Katie,
    I am so excited to make these invitations. You have made this so simple and fun! I bought the chalkboard template and have just figured out how to put all text on. I have two questions…
    1. Is there any way that you could give a run down on all the fonts you used for the text that we fill in? love your choices!
    2. What template would you recommend to match the chalkboard for the details card?
    Thanks so much!!!

    I LOVE these invites. I was able to find graphics and such on dafont.com which were pretty close to the ones you used, and created my own original invites and RSVPs in Word. I am so happy with how they turned out, even when I compare them to invites I’ve considered buying, I like mine better because I know there is nobody who is going to be sending out the same style of invites as me.Thank you so much for sharing the layout. It was a huge help and I had so much fun making my invitations 😀

    Hi Katie,
    I love these and I’m adapting for my own wedding this fall! However, I noticed that Paper and More’s listing for A-7 pocket envelope says:
    “We would recommend having the Base for this flap cut to 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and center on the flap. ..Please note a 5″ x 7″ card would be too large to use as a base card.”
    However, the design templates are in a 5″ x 7″ format. Would a 5″x7″ just sit closer to the edge, as is pictured here (which I think is perfect!), or did they change their pocket envelopes such that I’ll have to change something with the file to make it fit?
    Thanks in advance!

We plan on printing to ‘aged’ paper, rolling them up and putting them into mailable corked bottles for our invites. I’m really excited about it, we are getting married on a cruise ship so we thought the ‘invite in a bottle’ was totally us.
