Making your wedding as bespoke and tailored as possible is something that's becoming increasingly popular amongst many couples, so it's no wonder the popularity of personalised wedding invitations is also on the rise. The ability to customise and personalise wedding invitation packs allows you and your partner to design and create something completely bespoke and special for your guests to receive.
UK personalised wedding invitations come in many different styles and the level of personalisation will differ depending on the wedding stationery supplier, and of course, be dependent on your wedding budget. The general rule of thumb for personalising wedding stationery and designing your own wedding invitations is the more customisation, the more expensive it can be.
The level of customisation on your personalised wedding invitations can vary from adding a picture of you and your partner or altering the fonts to your favourite style, all the way to having companies such as A&J Personalised Comics or Photo Press design you your very own bespoke newspaper or comic wedding invitation.

What Are Personalised Wedding Invitations?
Personalised wedding invitations are wedding invites that allow you to customise the design outside of just your names and wedding details. Having the ability to change the colour schemes, alignment of the text and add extras to your wedding invitations gives couples the opportunity to make theirs feel uniquely their own.
Should You Make Personalised Wedding Invitations for Everyone?
If you really want to go the extra mile, you could personalise your wedding invitations for each guest - but if you’re going to do this bear in mind the impact it will have on your wedding budget.
Customising wedding invitations with names or pictures of individual guests is a lot more work for your wedding stationery supplier and you’ll have to pay for their time.
If you want to save money, our advice is to order your wedding invitations in one design that you’ve personalised and customised to your taste, and then add individual names on yourself. Handwriting names onto each invitation will take you an hour or so, but the admin that goes into printing for your suppliers will take much, much longer!
Now you have your personalised wedding invitation design sorted, it's time to map out the logistics. Here's our guide on when to send save the dates and wedding invitations.
