We DYI’ed our invites! For us it was cheap because we already had most of the supplies and had giftcards to get the rest, so they didn’t cost us anything. It was relatively easy too, it tooks us a long time to figure out the design because we started from scratch, but after that it was just a matter of fixing a few things and text printing and fixing more. They turned out great I think, and so far people have told me they loved them.
If you have to buy all the supplies it might be costy but I think still cheaper. Have to gotten quotes on what buying the invites would cost? Also, if you want that design it might be hard, how were you thinking of recreating it?

I made our invites, RSVP cards, menus and place cards in Microsoft publisher – I had never used the program before and found it pretty esay to get the hang of! I bought nice linen paper to print them on, all up cost less than $100 for everything and I got lots of compliments.

I have designed my own invites with an RSVP postcard. To get 75 printed (with the envelopes), I’ve been quoted between 100-120 with local copy shops. They’re on 100lb cream colored cardstock, color printing. The RSVP cards are printed on postcard materials. Not sure what postage will end up costing (2x stamps for each), but I know the weight won’t be an issue. I might also buy very thin twine to tie around, so that would increase cost. If you don’t mind a bit of work and don’t necessarily want tons of frill, DIY is a great option.
