The first step to make your own wedding invitations is to choose from our beautiful wedding invitation templates. Which one is closest to the style you both like? Are there any that fit your wedding theme? You can find our beautiful wedding invitation templates on our online editor or on our Invitation Maker for Weddings, Birthdays & Events app.

Add the basic information every wedding invitation needs
Make sure your wedding invitation conveys all the basic and important details to your guests. When is your wedding, where is it, do they need to RSVP by a certain date, and what if they can’t come? Of course, make sure there’s plenty of room for both your names and the big news!
As well as including the above, key information, there are other important details you may want to include on your invitation, including RSVP details, attire, any different reception locations. See WeddingWire for a full list of wedding details that are often overlooked that you may want to include in the text of your wedding invitation.
