Ok, first: do you have the ULTIMATE downloadable printable, theOffbeat Bride Checklist? If not, you should
There are hidden free wedding printables all over the web: downloadable wedding program templates, free DIY wedding invitation designs, patterns, fonts, fingerprint trees, and more. I stumble across them all the time while browsing blogs. But now Im 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 isnt even close to being complete. Thats 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 Ill add it. It will grow likeThe Bloband consume all our craft projects with it! Ahem well, you get the idea. But if you start to get overwhelmed and need a breakwe have a printable for that, too.

I dont 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)
HmmI wish the guest book advice cards didnt say Bride and Groom or would let users change that. Oh well. Nice idea.
We designed and used one of the free monograms from Wedding Chicks on our invites: They also have free invite suites, but the text on those wasnt customizable enough for my liking.
some great title page borders and assorted clip art from old books(shocker!) for free. thats where we found our save the date and rsvp card borders!
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!
Its a great resource. Youll run into selection issues sometimes, but you cant beat the price!
SO MUCH that is absolutely mega in just one post busy downloading some of the great fonts right now. THANK YOU!!!!!
How about cut-out dolls as a favour? We made scrolls tied up in ribbon as a favour for an 80th birthday party using Betty Boop. Went down a treat! Cant find the page we used but heres a link to LOADS of free paper doll downloads also
Here are a few that Ive done which included templates/access to artwork used.
Bat garland updated at
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.
She also provides downlaods for about 80% of her projects, so its a good site to checkout.
many wedding invitation printables for free. Downloaded my invitation from there. 🙂
Free wedding project printables. Not super offbeat but pretty, and customizeable. If nothing else, theyre free!
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!
There is a site called they have bridal shower invites and wedding invtes, cards, games and activities and coloring pages, and lots lots more. im using this site for most of the paper projects in my wedding!
Hey! Thank so much for linking to my blog! You have an amazing list of stuff here and Im going to share it 😉
This website has really cute seed packets and an adorable label for really cute favors. (Its different from the one you already have.)
Thank you for sharing all the links!
I just stumbled upon a free open-sourced program that mirrors CorelDraw or PhotoShop:
(For those of us who would like to design our own templates)
Hello! Does anyone knows where I can find the damask patterned paper shown on the invitation on this link? I really need help because I cant find it
Catharine this is a fabulous resources & I will be blogging and pinning it like crazy!
Thanks for going to so much effort to collate and share it.
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 its 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 didnt have to pay anything for my invites!
Hello, Just found this one. Very cute!
This is more for home decor, but Ive seen a lot of these displayed on the welcome table at Disney weddings! Disney Couples Printable:
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.
Printable wedding table games designs from Bride & Groom can even ask for your own colour!
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 😀
This is just perfect for DIY wedding planning.
A brilliant post and everything in one place. My afternoon will now be spent going through all of these!
Wow, this is a fantastic collection! Thank you. Im going to have to spend some proper time going through all the links exciting!! 🙂
Well, I must say its too nice and highly useful as well.
These are lovely to watch and use for sure as well. I loved all the shares mentioned in the post very much and these can be used by several DIY lovable people for many purposed along with wedding.
Im looking for a guest photo book template for our wedding do you know where i can download one?
