Look Ma, I Designed It Myself!

June 25, 2010

Yes, dear readers. I designed our Welcome Dinner/Farewell Brunch invitation insert all by mysef. And by “designed,” I mean stole an idea straight out of Mindy Weiss’ amazing book The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day (a.k.a. the best wedding book ever. Ever.) Here is the page I got the idea from:

Photo taken by me, buy the book here.

Since I have zero computer design experience, I was at a loss on how to even begin to design this. I ended up just using my good old frienemy, Microsoft Word. And I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with the result! Are you ready to see the fruits of my labor?

Brace yourselves, people.

And please, don’t laugh.

On my ‘puter screen.

And the finished product! I printed them onto ivory cardstock, and they will be tucked inside next to our main invitations. Not too shabby, eh?

The reverse side of our Welcome Dinner/Farewell Brunch invites will feature a wedding map. That, my friends, I did get some help with. But more on that later.

Did you design any wedding-related stuff on your computer? What program did you use?
