Sure, you could spend a small fortune on hiring a wedding stationery designer, but why not cut costs and go down the DIY route? We’re talking about our easy to customize wedding set templates, and the best part is we’re here to help you out every step of the way!

How to Create Custom Wedding Sets

Locating our wide range of DIY wedding sets is easy! Just go to the Graphic Designer and start a new design. In the Templates Library, navigate to Events and Cards, followed by Wedding Sets.

Simply pick your favorite wedding set design, then select the template you wish to customize first. We’re starting right at the beginning of the wedding stationary journey with a Save the Date template. Click the template, followed by Use This Template to get started.

Firstly, you’ll want to edit the template’s text so it reveals your own wedding details. To do so, double-click any text box and begin typing. You’ll also notice when you click on a text box, a Text Properties panel appears. From here, you can change things such as the Font, Size, Spacing, Color, and more.

To change the Text Color, for example, click the square next to Color Overlay, then select a color, type in your desired shade’s HEX Code, or use the Eyedropper tool.

To add new text to your design, navigate to Text in the main menu on the left, followed by Add Text. Alternatively, if you want to delete any existing text (or other elements) on your template, just right-click the text with your mouse and select Delete Item.

Now, if you want to make more changes to your template, such as changing the color of the background or existing graphics, you can also do that.

To change the background color, navigate to Customize in the main menu on the left. In the Background Color section, you’ll see multiple color swatches to choose from. Clicking the first square will allow you to select a new color, type in your desired shade’s HEX Code, or use the Eyedropper tool.

To change the color of a Graphic, click on the graphic. Then from the Graphic Properties panel, click on the relevant square to adjust the Color Overlay, Tint, or Graphic Colors. Then, simply select a color, type in the HEX Color Code, or use the Eyedropper tool.

When your Save the Date design is complete, click Save at the top of the screen, then choose your desired save location. We recommend saving your design in PDF format in Print quality if you plan on sending out printed copies to your guests! We also advise you to use the Save as Project feature, as this allows you to save your design to your BeFunky account or Computer so you can come back to it at a later date should you need to (say, to fix a pesky typo)!

Next up, we’re going to customize the Wedding Invitation template from the same Wedding Set. Navigate to Templates in the main menu on the left, followed by Events and Cards > Wedding Sets.

Firstly, you’ll want to swap out the template’s existing photo for one featuring you and your partner. To do this, click on the existing photo, then from the Image Properties panel, click Replace. This will allow you to insert a photo from your computer’s files.

As with the Save the Date template, we’re then going to edit the template’s existing text to reflect the customized details. Double-click the text box you wish to change and begin typing. Don’t forget to also make any necessary adjustments to the text from the Text Properties panel, if you did so before.

Start by swapping out the template’s existing photo for one featuring you and your partner. We’re using the same photo from the Wedding Invitation to keep our Wedding Set super cohesive, but you can use an alternate photo if you wish to mix things up a little!
