Creativity is something which you really need when you are designing wedding invitation and for
that you need some ideas. So here are some really cool wedding invitation designs which you
can self make at your home only-
1) Gatefold wedding invitation design
As the name suggests, in this design the appearance of the card opening is like that of a gate
and the invitee would have to open the flaps of the card just like a date door. Making this type of
wedding invitee is easy and simple.
Things you need- A standard thick paper (in rectangular form) for the main body, adhesive,
ribbons, sparkle powder, color pens or markers etc. for designing.
How to make- Take the card and taking the sides of it slowly stretch them towards the inside
to the center. When you have reached the center then press the curved developed on the sides
slowly and check if the flaps are equal in size. Now you have the main structure of the gatefold
card. You will have to do some decorations now. Ideally, you should write the main message on
the inside block which is seen when you pull the flaps. The decorations should be done on the
outside of the flaps. You can add ribbons, draw some decorative doodles like that of the heart
etc. to make it look impressive.
2) Pocketfold invitation
If the theme of your party is classical then you will love this type of design which is a classic
pocketfold invitation card. This would look like the pocketfold letters we used in the 70s and 80s.
Using this card for your wedding invitations won’t only make them unique but will also leave a
good impression on your guests that you are creative.
Things you need- A good quality envelope, normal hard paper for the card, scissors and
additional items like adhesive, color pens etc for decorations.
How to make: All you need to do is first cut the card paper in a size which would easily fit into
the envelope. Once you have cut it then you can write your wedding invitation message on the
card and put it into envelope. The best thing about making wedding invitations by yourself is
that you can write separate messages for different guests easily and in fact, you must use this
Now that you have the basic design you can now add details on the invitations. At this point you
will have to utterly use your creativity. You would want to make your card classic so avoid too
much designing and just keep it simple. In fact, if you won’t use designing then also it would do.
Instead write the messages in styled fonts and repeat the same for the text on the envelope.
This would do the trick and if you are still not satisfied then you can use one of those wax seals
to seal the invitation card. This would give a great classic feel to the card.
