Ok bees. FI and I have a budget for the wedding (who doesn’t) and one of the areas in which we decided to save money was on the invitations. I couldn’t stand spending lots money on something I felt people were just going to throw away. That being said I bought a kit and designed my own invitations. I’ve had several comments since then about the fact that I made my invitations. One person was upset that I didn’t ask her to design the invitations (didn’t even know she did that) and another made a comment that the invitations looked homemade. Small vent: Yes I made the invitations and I personally think they look nice thank you very much. GRRR

I also made my own invitations, and proud of it! Saved a ton of money! If someone comments about them looking homemade again, just say “Yes…that’s what I was going for, Thank You!”
ETA: And I’m sure they look wonderful!

I agree people are just going to throw the invitations so we decided to go the homemade route as well.
I don’t think it matters what people say as long as you are happy with the way they turned out and don’t let what people say get to you some folks have no filter.
