Additional Craft Information:

Besides helping your guests find their way to the reception, reception invitations can also help you with sticking your wedding's budget. Reception invites are the cards that have all the information and important details about the wedding. These cards are relatively new to the wedding scene so there is really no format for them, they can look like anything the bride and groom what them to. These cards are also very useful in informing your guests about need to know details about the wedding. They help the wedding celebrants and guests to enjoy the wedding more and they assist the wedding organizers in dealing with the little details about the wedding reception.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Some might say that reception invitations are just added expenses to weddings, but they are actually more on investments then expenses. So how do you save money with reception invitations? There are many ways for these little cards to do so. One is by limiting the number of tag-along guests that your guests might bring to the reception. Nobody really goes to weddings alone, single guests might bring dates or friends with them to keep them company. Tag-along guests are fine, but they add to your weddings guest-list and budget. By indicating that your guests are limited to bring only one tag along with them with help you a lot. But how do you say this without sounding rude? Use a statement like “two seats reserved for (name of guests) of the reception”. This is enough to inform your guests that they can bring one person along to the reception.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Another way that the reception invitations can help the wedding's budget stick to the plan is by placing the menu on the card. By informing your guests what is available during the reception, they can inform the wedding organizers what they would prefer to have. This also helps the caterers because they will have an exact menu and the exact number of meals to prepare. Your guests will also enjoy the reception better since they are having a meal that they want to have. It also helps with guests who can only have specific meals or have allergies to certain food.

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
