Ok ladies, after much research I think we are going to attempt DIY invites…and by DIY we mean buying the wedding invite kit from Target and printing out ourselves. We are not crafty at all but think we can handle this.
Anyone have huge issues going this route?
Any tips or pointers you can shoot our way?
Since the kit does not come with reception cards I think we are going to have to buy similar paper and print out as well.

I designed our invitations and printed them on pre-cut paper from Target. It was just fine. Don’t overthink it – just follow the instructions.
I do recommend extras – we completely forgot to invite some people! Oops!

The biggest tips I can give you are:
- Make sure your printer can handle the weight of the paper you are purchasing.
- Until you have your layout/design finalized Test printing on regular copy paper and cut down to your invite size after printing, that way you dont need nearly as many extras for testing purposes!
- Don’t be afraid to try something completely different and new!

I did all of my invites myself and then cut the paper to the correct size. Absolutely no one knew I did it DIY. I’ve even had other brides ask who I used so they can use that company too. I really enjoyed doing it too.
Best tip- use plain white paper for your test paper instead of the fancy invite paper.
