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!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little
    bit more than just your articles? Imean, what you say is fundammental and all.

    But just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
    Superb blog!
