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… and a lot of patience. If you’re planning a rustic or vintage-inspired wedding then I hope you’ll enjoy this FREE wedding invitation template that I created, or at least walk away with some inspiration. Brace yourself, this is a looooooong and very detailed post. You may need a cup of coffee…or three.

Fonts & Vectors:

You can reference ALL of the fonts and vectors I used, along with links to sources in this post. If you plan to download my free template or any of the files from my shop then you don’t need to worry about the vectors, those are only listed in case you want to play around and design your own invitation.

How to add text to the templates:

Most of my free downloads are set up as either PNG or JPG files, that you will then need to add your own text on top of. You can do this with any image editing software, or over at From there 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 find my tutorials on how to add or delete text to the templates using PicMonkey HERE.

With that said, I do offer editable PDF files over in the shop. The listings in my shop include editable PDFs for Adobe Reader/Acrobat as well as the PNG or JPG templates you can edit with PicMonkey.

“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, even though it’s not included in this post (the design is available in my shop). 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.

For the details card, we cut kraft cardstock sheets into 4 x 5.5 and then printed directly onto the pre-cut sheets. Afterward 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.

We went with 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!

    Do you have a matching program template to go along with this invite?

        What would the cost be for the program?

          I would also be interested in that!

  • Hi Katie, I love your invitation so much thank you for sharing. I have been successful in downloading the template as a PDF however I am unable to convert it to a workable document. I have downloader your suggested fonts. Any suggestions on how to successful convert the template so I can edit the information, any ideas would be of use, I have tried multiple on line programs. Thanks in advance!!

    Hi Katie,

    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,

    Hi Katie
    I know it is a flattened PDF file but is there no way of changing the mint colour to a blush/dusty pink?

    Thanks so much

    May 19, 2014
  • April

    The embellishments seem like they would make it difficult to mail. How much did each cost to send? Love this, thanks!

    Hi Katie

    Great job on the invites! Just wondering… how much did it end up costing on average per invite for you?

  • Rebekah

    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!

    June 2, 2014
    • Hi Katie!

      Thanks for letting me know the font πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

      Thank you!!

      June 21, 2014
  • Chelsea

    How do I go about getting the color changed on the details card?

    June 18, 2014
  • Liz

    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!

  • Nicole

    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!!!

    July 5, 2014
    • Nicole

      I apologize!! I found a layout of the text you used! You thought of everything! Thank you!!!!!

    Hi Katie.
    I’m having a small wedding and think these are just great. I’m mailing approximately 50 invitations and would like to know about how many yards of lace did you purchase? I’m not sure how much I should get. A ball park figure would be so helpful to get an idea!

  • Delilah

    Oh my gosh you are amazing! I’ve been looking for DIY ideas and my biggest issue has been finding paper at a decent price. Your links to paperandmore are absolutely perfect, thank you! And your tip about the afternoon/evening bit was one I was unaware of and heeded πŸ˜‰

    July 25, 2014
  • Hi Kate (or anyone else),

    I am not very good with computers and to be honest I am embarrassed to say I do not know how to add in my details to the free template… Could someone please give me break down steps on how to do this.

    Thank you so much in advance.

  • Elaine

    Hi Katie,

    Thanks for sharing this. It is super useful and I have almost finished designing the card with your template. May I know how I can set the printing size so that it will fit into an A7 paper? Or I have to print it on an A4 paper and crop them one-by-one? Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks a bunch!

  • Shahad

    Love your templates.. I just have a question.. Do you buy the card and get it mailed to your address or you get the template for free and mailed to you email?

    Thank you!

  • Winter

    I LOVE these invites. I was able to find graphics and such on 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 πŸ˜€

    Hi Katie!

    Thank you so much for this beautiful, extremely useful post! I wanted to find out what kind of printer you used for your invitations. I have an old printer and I am looking to update it to one that can print on pre-cut/custom cut Cardstock. Looking to use your template for my upcoming wedding in March! Any info you can give would be awesome.

    I am going to be purchasing this DIY invite and details card in blush (or coral. have to consult the fiancΓ©!) the moment my paycheck clears! This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! Will you be selling a matching RSVP card to match the blush and coral?

  • Katie

    Hi Katie – WOW! These are wonderful! and have helped settle the long debate about invites in our household! Thank you!!

    I’m using photoshop to edit and it’s working fabulously! I just wanted to know whether you could send me a list of the fonts you used… I’ve been using lots of free downloads, and it’s not quite got the same feel!

    I especially love the ‘and’ at the bottom of the invite “Dinner and merriment to follow” but I don’t even know where to begin looking for this font!!

    Thank you again – and I hope to hear from you soon! Need to get these out asap lol!

Do you have any advice of what can I do? Is there any other editing software would you reccomend?

    Thank in advance, Carina

    I think I sent you an email but don’t know if it worked. I was wondering if you could send me a list of the fonts that you used on the mint wedding program? I LOVE the layout and don’t want to change the look, but I do need to change a few things.

    Hi Katie-

    First off- THANK YOU! We will be using these for our wedding invites. One question- Which font did you use for the time (numbers- 4:30)? I can’t find it anywhere.

    Hi there,

    I absolutely love these invites! I was looking in your shop for colors that you have for the invite on this page, with lavender and mint but did not see them. Those are our wedding colors, wondering how I would get those colors with the templates? Or would it be a custom?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Katie!

    March 21, 2015

    Hi Katie,

    i really love your invitation template. We’re from germany and i can’t find anything like this on german pages πŸ™‚
    Now i’d like to ask you if there’s anyway to change the tempplate exept of the empty spaces. Not all of our guests are speaking english, so they may not be able to understand everything.
    I would also pay for it πŸ™‚

  • Liz S

    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!

        Yes, that is helpful! Thanks for the quick reply!

    I have done the invitations successfully, but the details card… prints out so small. What settings are you printing these at? Every time I change the setting, they still print out so tiny, it could fit in the palm of my hand!

    My fiance found your post online and suggested it for our wedding invites and I am absolutely thrilled with your design! 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.
    Thanks again for the easy templates and fonts – you have been a lifesaver for our cost friendly wedding πŸ™‚

    Kia ora Katie from New Zealand!

    I just wanted to thank you so much for providing this template. My husband and I got married in March and we used your template and instructions to make our invitations for our wedding. We ordered all the paper stock from the US so that they would be identical, since New Zealand uses different paper sizes and we couldn’t find a local supplier. This added to the cost but it was still way cheaper than if we had had them made by someone else. We cracked open the wine and sat there in a procession, cutting and punching and gluing and tying; it was great! We ran with your DIY invites and beyond: we made our own table decorations for reception and made our own flowers from Italian crepe paper. Once we’d started with your handmade template we just kept going! Everyone has loved the invites (and, in turn, every other handmade aspect of the reception – most even took bits as souvenirs!) and we’ve just used the same template again to create thank you cards.

    Thank you again for providing the inspiration for our magical day!

    Ngā mihi nui (BIG THANKS!),

  • Lesley O'Donohue

    Katie thank you for this post. By purchasing your templates I was able to create beautiful wedding stationery for my daughters wedding. We are thrilled with the result, I found your templates easy to edit and appreciated prompt email support when I needed it! We used recycled straw pockets and envelopes and I printed the invitations and details card on heavy card with a “pinstripe” through it. We used the mint template and decided that we didn’t need a card mat behind it. We tied each pocket with a length of rustic twine, fine ribbon and a slightly wider organza ribbon. I printed a clear seal to go on the envelopes and we were delighted with the effect. To be honest, I don’t think we ended up saving money as I ended up ordering the pockets and envelopes from the US as the paper sizes aren’t standard here in Australia and the finished product cost a fair bit to post, however we have ended up with a very original product which we think captures the feel we want to create for the wedding. Thanks again Katie for sharing your ideas, your fabulous templates and the email help when I needed it! Enjoy your travels, Lesley
