I’m doing my own invites as well and they are driving me crazy. I’m having to print the text on regular weight paper, cut them down, and then glue them to heavier cardstock which I also have to cut on my own. Keeping the lines at 90-deg angles have been the most difficult part. I had to trim down the website cards numerous times – total pain in the butt. 

I drafted up the RSVP cards, ran a test page and then realized that when cut them down, they will not fit in the envelopes I purchased – I had to completely redesign them (that’s what I’ve been working on all morning). Urgh.

I didn’t want to just order invites online. 

I keep looking at the two invites for friends’ upcoming weddings on my fridge and remind myself that I could have done the same and ordered them online, but that I wanted something a little more personal and DIY-y. I know they will be great when I finish, but it’s just so time consuming.

So far, the website information card is complete, I’m working on the RSVP postcards, and have started designing the invitations. I hope to have everything finished up by the end of the month.
