I have a wedding coming up soon and I thought I would share with you a cheap but very effective way to make a nice, vintage and traditional wedding invitation. We went with this design to go with our vintage/shabby chic theme. I will try answer any questions, (Please note the dates, addresses and names on the invitation has been changed for privacy reasons).

Things that you will need:

  1. Computer software (I used Microsoft Word but people more confident with Photoshop might prefer using it).
  2. Laser printer or access to a Laser photocopier (I used the one in my office). This is so the ink don't run when you wet it later.
  3. Paper, any type will do (I used the cheap office photocopier paper).
  4. Kettle
  5. T-bags
  6. Clean paint brush
  7. Jug that can hold hot water
  8. Tray
  9. A place to hang to dry or an oven
  10. Iron
  11. Dish Cloth
  12. Wax and wax sealing stamp
