    I think for the far-away people who won’t be coming and comparing invites side-by-side with others, it’s probably fine. I mean, as long as the non-DIY invites are just as nice as something you’d normally send – professional and pretty – they won’t look like you just threw something together.

    I’m guilty of not including some of the seals/stickers on FI’s great aunts’ invites- he has no idea who these people are, and we’re also using the stickers for thank yous.

    You’re going to want to save at least 2 invites for yourself, anyway.

    I’m kinda guilty of this one too. My original design of invitations was very labor intensive. After about 5 of them, I decided that only parents and grandparents would get the full invitations.

    I don’t think most people will remember the invitation anyway. Just be sure to send the nice ones to people who will keep it.

    Personally, I wouldn’t do it.  What if it comes up in discussion that someone mentions the beautiful embroidered map, and someone else has no idea what they’re talking about?  It’s your call on whether or not any of these people would talk, but I wouldn’t chance it.  PPs have good points too, though, so it’s all your call!

    I think its fine – just make sure the people who get the less involved invite don’t live near or know anyone who gets the super fancy invite.

    Also, not sure if you’re doing anything with the invite at the actual wedding, but if someone from the group of less fancy invites actually does end up attending, and they see the fancy invite during the festivities(ocassionally a guest will bring the invite in their purse or something…its weird but Ive seen people do this) it might be a little awkward. 

    Otherwise, I think its probably ok.
