There Are hundreds of themes that you can choose but you can make a premade card look like your own by adding small details that will make it look more like it’s yours.

    This was a super informative post to read. I like the old fashion way of sending wedding invitations. I think it is important not to over spend on the invitations. I do not like the idea of emailing them at all.

    I doubt I’ll ever be needing wedding invitations, lol, but I do like the old-style mailed invitation!. But I see the value of emailed invites, too. They would save time & money.
