I totally didn’t design/create mine.  I ordered them from an internet site already printed and everything.  Big relief off of me.

Guilty as charged.  I’m DIYing some stuff for sure (escort card holders, napkins, fans, programs) but I don’t think I’ll have nearly enough time or energy to do the invites.  I really only have my mom and sister to help me, and they live 2.5 hours away!  I am sincerely jealous of everyone who’s doing it though!

I’m not sure what I am going to do yet… part of me is really wanting to make mine, but then I’m not the most creative person and I am scared I would majorly screw them up haha. So I’m not sure what I am going to do yet.

I was thinking of ordering online printing them.

But the more I see the pocketfold invites I love them.

So I might just order them DIY Kit… Everything cut out!! Only need to print and paste them together.

Have of the work done!!  Cool

I don’t know if this counts, but I envisioned the invitations and The Hubs did the DIY.  He does a lot of design and Photoshop stuff at work, so he was able to put together exactly what I was envisioning.  So, I guess technically, I didn’t do my own, but we had some DIY in the mix.

I bought the paper products, but my friend did the design (with my input!) and printing.  Sooo not crafty.

I definitely did NOT make them! Way too much work.  I know, it’s sad.  I have a lot to do though! I am making my own programs though so maybe that makes up for it. 😉

I ordered my invites and then added a directions card and an embossed heart on the invite itself (there was supposed to be a monogram but I screwed up when ordering, d’oh!)

Looking back I was not very happy with my invites and I kinda wish I had done them myself. Oh well.

I’ve been debating whether I would DIY my invites or not.  I’m having a small wedding, so the cost savings might not be worth the time it will take to do them.

I’m not DIYing mine either. (I’m hoping they’ll arrive soon so I can send them out and blog about them!)  Of course I’ve made up the time that would have taken to DIY them by starting a million other DIY projects. 🙂

I’m probably going to order them online.  I still toss around the idea of making them, but I’m not sure if it’s feasable for me or if it would be the best decision (budget wise).

We’ll see!!

We chose ours out of a book, and we love them!  We just aren’t crafty enough!
