Nope, I haven’t. I may get to it in June…we’ll see.  I’m not worried.

Mine aren’t DIY by any means, but:

I haven’t gotten my invites done yet! The knot’s checklist is screaming at me to get them done, but I haven’t. I’d like to have them ordered this month at least.

Mine are DIY and I probably won’t start until the end of June, beginning of July.

My mom is anxious about the invites.  I’m researching DIY and ordering online since the price of these things is RIDICULOUS!  But we’ll probably have them decided on by the end of the month.

I haven’t started this yet, either! All the invites I like are so expensive . . . and I don’t have a home printer to DIY. Any advice?

I have mine all figured out but I want to wait to print them until the last min in case any changes come up.

I’m pretty sure mine are going to be DIY, but I haven’t even started thinking about invitations.  I JUST put the last batch of Save-The-Date Cards in the mail this morning (I’ve been sending batches all week).  I’m planning on getting more serious about the design in June, and then actually making them in July.  I hope to get them out in early-mid August, and giving guests about a month to RSVP.

Ours aren’t DIY but we have already received them. Next step, calligraphy!

We had ours letterpressed, and they are currently occupying valuable space in my bedroom. I still need to find paper that is long enough to do a bellyband on a 5×7 invite lengthwise and order a custom stamp to embellish the bellyband. Oh, and I need to get one of those invisible ink pens and find a calligrapher. But I am not worrying about any of that stuff this month. Right now figuring out our dessert course and rehersal lunch venue, and finding an affordable DOC are at the top of my to-do list.

@babylou- You can always design your own, and them take the design file and your paper supplies to Staples or another office store to get them printed. Typically those stores have higher quality printers anyway.

I don’t think I’ll be doing DIY Invites, but I haven’t ordered mine yet. However, ours will be a little less complex cuz they are all reception only invites since we’re having a private Las Vegas ceremony with no guests.

I have just started looking into different invitation designs and companies and comparing prices so my goal is to order them within the next month.

There’s still a reasonable amount of time left so try not to worry.
