DIY Download: Pre-Wedding Fiesta Invite

We already had a fabulous giveaway last week and it was such fun, I’ve decided to keep the freebies coming!

Cyd over at The Sweetest Occasion asked me to write a guest post on her blog this week and I pulled together a fun, Cinco-de-Mayo-inspired board for a Pre-Wedding Fiesta. In case you’re inspired to whip up your own fancy fiesta, I’ve created a FREE downloadable invitation template (with matching address labels) just for you!

The invitation design takes its cues from the inspiration board – a fun, fresh color palette of seafoam, emerald and a touch of a tangy yellow, along with design details inspired by papel picado and traditional Mexican motifs.

For a more spicy option, there’s also a second version of the invitation included in the download which was inspired by this recent color palette.

The template is super simple to use – all you need is Adobe Acrobat Reader (which you can get for free here if you don’t have it already).

For the invitation:
Type your wording in the template, print on cardstock and trim using the cropmarks as a guide.

For the address labels:
Type your return address in the template, then print on Avery labels #5164 (3 1/3″ x 4″, 6 labels per sheet).

Click below to download… and have fun!! If you decide to have your own pre-wedding fiesta, I’d love to see photos!

    I am working on making the invitations now and I cannot edit the font (of the personalized area) in any way… is this normal?

    Hi Elissa,

    I used a standard font for the template so that the file can be opened and used on any computer without having to download or purchase a specific font. You can change the font though, if you have Adobe Acrobat Pro. Here’s what you would do:

    1. Open the template in Acrobat
    2. Go to Tools > Advanced Editing > Text Field Tool
    3. Click inside the text area on the template and a Text Field Properties window will pop up
    4. Go to the Appearance tab and you’ll see a dropdown menu at the bottom where you can choose a font from your computer

    Hope this helps!

    @gia at betsywhite, there is not an advanced editing option..when I go to tools it just has select and zoom, analysis, and customize tool bars… there seems to be a text editing tool bar but there is a star by that option which means “it is only available when document rights are enabled” It doesn’t let me select it.. I redownloaded Adobe but its still like that.. Maybe I will call Adobe and see what the deal is!

    @gia at betsywhite, Just spoke with Adobe.. they say I must have acrobat 9 (not the free reader edition of adobe) to be able to change the font.. it is $299 :( Unfortunately I won’t be able to use these invites!

    I am having a small wedding with a large reception after the wedding is there any way to change the “pre-wedding fiesta” to a “post-wedding fiesta?”

    these are great, but I wish there was a non-wedding version for those of us who would like to celebrate Cinco-de-mayo!
