The newest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings hits newsstands soon – and this time it’s the DIY issue! The Summer 2011 issue is full of beautiful inspiration, from flowers to music to fashion, but today we have a special sneak peek at the invitation inspiration!
There’s an amazing five-page story just on wedding invitations, with lots of creative ideas on how to personalize your wedding invitations and save the dates with crafty DIY touches – from rubber stamps to twine to wax seals. My personal favorite involves dry-brushed (and super colorful) watercolor paint on a letterpress wedding invitation. So, so pretty.
The editors even had some fun playing around with non-traditional DIY invitation ideas – like these invitations created using a P-touch label maker and colored index cards. Such a great idea for a modern wedding, or even a school theme wedding!
Check out the rest of the story in the Summer 2011 issue!
