I DIY our invitattions but it was not an art project for me. I didnt get creative or anything LOL. I just bought invitations in the clearance aisle at Michaels and printed them out. Made a map, reception card, and RSVP card and threw ’em in double envelopes. It cost me like $50 bucks I think. It ended up kinda being a pain in the ass trying to get them centered because the size of my invites were all weird but totally worth it in the end. I highly recommend at least getting 10 more than you actually need for practicing. Also, once you have them “perfect” only print one and have several people proof read. Plus double check name spellings, addresses, times, etc. VERY IMPORTANT!

For us, yeah, it was definitely worth it. We wanted to include a lot of cards and detail, and we couldn’t have purchased all of that without breaking the bank. Also, Fiance loves the fact that no one else on Earth has the same invitations that we do (and insists that they have to be significantly revamped if I want to put them in my Etsy store). And you know what? It was actually pretty great spending all that time together, just the two of us, cutting and pasting everything. Good memories…

I bought a kit from micheals on sale. I needed 2 kits and they ended up costing me around $60 for 80 invites. They turned out really nice except I found hte toner doesn’t stick well to the cardstock – maybe it was just my printer… I had to be very careful or the toner would lietterally fall off!! Not smudge, but just dissappear!
