I have no talent in designing and we just pick one from the website. Why feel guilty?Wink

we are not doing DIY our invites…. we are doing somewhat traditional and the quality is a big factor on our list

I thought about making my own for about half an hour – then got so tired just thinking about it that I said “no way”. I had pretty much no desire to make my own. That doesn’t mean I don’t love to look at/get a little jealous of the beautiful paper crafts showcased EVERY DAY on Weddingbee, but it may have just killed me to do my own invitations.

I’d love to do my own but thinking of all the effort and the dozens of hours spent doing them…not to mention that I’m a perfectionist and I would absolutely have to have them perfect before sending them out would be another thing to worry about. If I don’t find the right ready-made invites, I’ll probably do my own.

I didn’t do it, but I tied a bow around each. I even paid a calligrapher.

I ordered mine online and they turned out beautifula nd were a reasonable cost.  I did play around with the wording a bit.  We made our own directions/Accomodations card in Word and we used resume paper that was the same ecru as our invitations.

My Save-The-Date Cards were already sent out before I found WB. If I would have found this site sooner, I may have thought about making my own invitations. I love doing crafts and am incorporating a lot of DIY into the wedding. Since it was too late, I purchased the matching invites from WeddingPaperDivas.com.

I don’t plan to make ours. I would like to get them designed perhaps by an Etsy seller, and then I think a printer we know will do us a good deal on the printing (he already has said he will).

I’ll assemble them myself though, and I also think I’ll get some paper/card part printed so that we can print our own menus/programmes etc. for the day – using the same fonts i hope as the invites.

We’re letterpressing – no DIY talent here.

I ordered some inexpensive ones…Invitations weren’t very important to me, not enough to spend a lot of money, and not enough to spend my time on them.

I never even considered DIYing my own invitations. I value my sanity. 🙂 Kudos to those brides that do it, they have far more patience than I!

Definitely went through Etsy.  The invitations we settled on are so reasonably priced, we’re even considering ordering table cards and place settings from the same vendor.
