While most of the questionnaires I found on Pinterest were beautiful, I really wanted something simple. I eventually came across a style I liked and decided to create my own personalized template based off this style. I found all of the frames and different elements online, I even downloaded a free font to use. I felt this would be a pretty inexpensive project as I arranged an 8.5' by 11' piece of paper to include four questionnaires, meaning it would only cost me a few sheets of card-stock in the end.
- Adobe InDesign (trial)
- Quality card-stock
- I first created an Adobe InDesign on an 8.5' by 11' piece of paper that was evenly split four ways. This ended up taking more time than I had originally intended as I needed to ensure the useable area did not interfere with the printable area of the page.
- I then included various frames and different elements within the frames. It took me some time to think of the questions I wanted to include for this questionnaire. I want our guests to feel included, but I didn't want to bore them with endless questions to fill out.
- Once all of the questions I wanted were included I printed the document onto coral and ivory coloured card-stock and cut the page into the four even sections so that each questionnaire was independent from the others.
I made sure to not include any colour in our questionnaire as I liked how it looked, and since it cuts down on printing costs - bonus! I am really excited about this experiment for our wedding. I can't wait to see what answers we get for our questions, especially the one about potential future children. I'm am not sure if I want to incorporate these into the guest book somehow, but either way I know I will be using these at our reception.
