How can I make wedding invitations with my Cricut?

If you're a beginner to Cricut, you'll need to know that a common cutting file is called an SVG, and this is essentially a template for you to cut out with your Cricut machine. You can find these SVG files for Cricut on Etsy and DIY craft blogs or websites. When browsing Etsy and beyond, you will want to search specifically for SVG files along with the wedding theme you're looking for. You just upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space, and that's it! It reads the file and tells your machine where and what to cut. You may or may not want to edit or adapt the design to your sizing needs, but generally speaking, everything is ready for you to use as is.

You can also use Cricut to address your wedding envelopes using some Cricut pens, but that's a topic for another day. Possibilities are endless!

Can I use Cricut for non-paper wedding invitations?

Even though we are rounding up our favorite paper Cricut wedding invitations in this article, yes, you can make different kinds of wedding invitations with your Cricut! If you have a Cricut Maker, you can use Cricut's engraving tip and quick swap housing and etch onto acrylic sheets for that cool modern look. Or alternatively for the Explore Air machine, you can cut out vinyl and also adhere on acrylic sheets (we only recommend this for smaller weddings as this would get expensive and time-consuming!). You can also use the Foil Transfer Kit to add a metallic touch to your paper invites for some glimmery details.

Which Cricut machine is best for wedding invitations?

A Cricut Explore Air machine is perfect for cutting most wedding invitations. Its ample size is great for cutting out invite pockets, detailed invite jackets, trifold designs, and more. It really is an ideal machine for all of your wedding DIY projects, and the one we use for all of our Cricut wedding tutorials. The only time when you might want a Maker is when you're wanting to engrave acrylic or cut thicker materials like basswood.

If you're skipping the whole "make your own wedding invitations" thing but want to make your own wedding place cards instead, you can get away with using a Cricut Joy machine, the smallest, but mighty cutting machine in the Cricut family. It's great for limited crafting space and for projects no bigger than 4.5" at its widest.

Everything you need to make Cricut wedding invitations

Which supplies will I need to make my own wedding invitations with my Cricut?

For basic paper wedding invitations, you'll want to start with some fresh mats and a new cutting blade if your Cricut has been used many times before. Since you'll be doing a lot of potential intricate cutting for your invites, beginning sharp and clean is best practice!

Cricut Explore Air or Maker machine
• 12"x12" LightGrip Cutting Mat
Fine-Point Replacement Blade
Scoring stylus (if applicable)
Weeding tool
• Premium cardstock
Adhesive dots (if applicable)
Glue tape runner (if applicable)
Envelopes (or make your own!)
Large scraper tool (for cleaning your mat in between cuts)
Weeding scrap collector (okay, not 100% needed, but we love how mess-free this makes weeding out all of those tiny bits of paper!)
• ... and last but not least, the actual SVG file of your choice! You'll find our favorites below.

And if you're feeling extra crafty, add ribbon or make your own wax seals with a hot glue gun to finish your wedding invitations!
