Me and hubby went crazy looking for a desi invite, but didn’t trust it being shipped overseas (it was expensive too!) , so we did them ourselves!

Wanted to keep it simple, I bought invitations at Michaels and his cousin helped print them.

Of course use the 40% coupons at Michaels πŸ™‚

wow. naush, you did a fantastic job with your invitation! i also did the same thing–buying the paper/pack from michaels and printed my own. i loved the end project, but man, did it take time! i love how you got the arabic on the top. i just used the english translation. i’ll try to take some pics of it and share.

thank you ! πŸ™‚

yeah im glad i made them , i couldnt trust them being sent over from India because sometimes they make mistakes plus shipping was like $300 lol.

 our formatting took a while, and so did tying ribbons on like 200+ invitations! lol But i wass satisfied.

 Lets see yours!

deebs yours look great! We got ours at Target and printed them ourselves!

These are a peach color, but ours were brown, they turned out really nice and everyone comments on how professional they look!

If you print your own, make sure that you lay them out so that think has plenty of time to dry before you stack them on top of one another. Something I learned the hard way! πŸ™‚

Yay Hennabee! We got ours at Target and plan to print them ourselves, too. So encouraging to see that others have done it successfully!

I love doing DIY Wedding Invitations, and it has now become a hobby! In the past I have used rubber stamping and embossing techniques to make DIY Invitations. Here is a tutorial which teaches how to make a contemporary DIY Invitations on Marigold Events.
