It was easier for me to coordinate my invitations with the rest of the stationary by doing them myself…

I’m planning on making my own. I should only have about 50 to make, since we’re having a small wedding, so I don’t think it should be that difficult, but talk to me again after I start the project! 

I haven’t found the type of invite and design I want in a reasonable price range, so DIY seems like the best way to go.

I think its because they want to get crafty. I don’t have time or the supplies :e(

I just went to kinkos.

Mainly because I can.

Other reason:

I enjoyed doing this 

I felt I could get invites that were equal to something I really loved but wasn’t willing to pay the exorbitant price for. 

I wanted a personal wedding with personal touches.

 Best of luck!

In short, the price. I found some great ones out there….but they were all about $5.50 per set. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but we have 300 guests and it adds up! I wanted to make my splurges on the food and decorations, not the paper products.

Im using my Gocco and so far, so good. Better than anything I could have bought!

I hired Mrs. Plumeria to do my main invitations. As for the rehearsal dinner and tea ceremony invites, I wanted to do them on my own because I didn’t want to spend that much money on them but I also wanted a particular look, concept, and feel. The main invitation was custom designed because I wasn’t seeing anything I liked and this way, we got exactly what we wanted and it wasn’t extremely expensive, either.
