can we see a post of them? was it because its the included (cheaper) paper? I used the glossy paper premium for my save the dates and the linen for the invite itself (and the inserts) 


I think my invites look pretty nice but I am also adding some DIY with pocketfolds as well. The biggest thing I also added was new envelopes….made everything a lot nicer!

Add a belly band? Or tie it up with a ribbon? Or lace?

It’s hard to say without seeing what they look like.

Need pictures, but you could easily get some little bling (not the correct term, I know) stickers from Michaels. They spruced up my DIY engagement party invitations and didn’t look cheap at all.

Let’s see a picture of what you’ve got so far. You can always buy some nice crafty/sparkly paper at Michaels (or other local crafts store) and use it as background. Tape over it the invitations you printed at VistaPrint. You always can add some ribbons, lace, jewels to make them more custom and handmade looking. Depending on how many invitation you have.


Here is an example (but hard to give you concrete one without seeing what you’ve got so far)

Just my opinion.  I would send them out as is.  They look great! And tell your mom about how hard your FI worked on them.   And please don’t worry.  Everyone goes through this.  I’ve had a lot of my wedding ideas criticized as well.

Do you like them? Do you think they’re too plain? If you’re happy with them, I’d send them out! No one will “feel sorry for you” because of how your invites look… at least no one I know would!
