80+ free wedding printables: a huge list of downloadable DIY wedding projects

wedding-printables

Ok, first: do you have the ULTIMATE downloadable printable, the Offbeat Bride Checklist? If not, you should definitely grab that.

There are hidden freebies all over the web: downloadable templates, patterns, fonts, fingerprint trees, and more. I stumble across them all the time while browsing blogs. But now I'm attempting to compile a MEGA-SUPER-MONDO list of all kinds of free printables and downloadable templates for wedding DIY projects.

The thing is, this list isn't even close to being complete. That's where you come in. If you know of any awesome free downloads that you used in your wedding and party planning, let me know in the comments and I'll add it. It will grow like The Blob and consume all our craft projects with it! Ahem… well, you get the idea. But if you start to get overwhelmed and need a break… we have a printable for that, too.

  1. I don't have a complete list of the "best" ones, but man alive are papercraft projects pretty much the most awesome way to have theme centerpieces, flower accents, decor– really, anything you can think of for any type of interest, geekery, nerdy video games, whatever– and yeah, they take a little time, but you can have a 4-foot World of Warcraft centerpieces for the cost of a piece of paper. (Plus they make AWESOME getting-to-know-you/bring the bridal party together activities)

    Awesome

  2. Hmm…I wish the guest book advice cards didn't say "Bride and Groom" or would let users change that. Oh well. Nice idea.

    45 agree
  3. http://www.fromoldbooks.org/ has some great title page borders and assorted clip art from old books(shocker!) for free. that's where we found our save the date and rsvp card borders!

  4. I love you right now for that MorgueFile link. Not as a bride (though I am one…) but as an architecture student who has to frequently make posters and can never find high res photos to use!

    • It's a great resource. You'll run into selection issues sometimes, but you can't beat the price!

  7. I always use this website when I want to do any vintage-y projects. She uses a lot of recycled paper and old books and such from thrift stores. Plus, she sent me supplies from her own crafting supplies to make my bridesmaids gifts.
    justsomethingimade.com
    She also provides downlaods for about 80% of her projects, so it's a good site to checkout.

  8. The wedding chicks invitation suites saved my procrastinating self. They are customizable but all the formatting is already done for you. I lucked out and they had one that fit with us and the feel of our wedding. I uploaded them to vistaprint on postcards and oversized postcards and they were super affordable and turned out perfect!

  13. Unfortunately I discovered the AMAZING Wedding Chicks after I spent $60 on Save the Dates that I thought were "OK", but I now use their products for 90% of my printable needs.

    I fill out and download what I need, and it's amazingly easy to open up the image in Microsoft Paint and edit the layout and colors. My invitations (which almost everyone loved) are a combination of 2 invitations, formatted to have the RSVP card attached at the bottom so that I could fold the card up and mail it without using an envelope. I didn't have to pay anything for my invites!

  14. This page would be really awesome if it said by the title if it was in fact free (e.g free download, free templates). Just a thought.

    1 agrees
  15. This post is still one of my all time favorites even post wedding. Every time I need something printable (& free) I always come back to this post as a starting point in my search. Love it! It would cool to see a similar post on home & life for either holidays or just because home decor links :D
