They look handmade to me, but in a good way.
You have to consider your audience, though. You’re asking a group of women who are very involved in the “wedding world” to judge. I bet if you asked family or friends, they would think they were bought. Since we read blogs and frequent wedding websites, we can tell between DIY and what you can get a designer to make from Etsy and even sites like Wedding Paper Divas and Vistaprint. I know I definitely can.
I think the invites are very nice. You should be proud of your hard work. I’m sure your guests will be impressed 🙂

You’re asking a crowd of wedding-crazed, DIY-obesessed ladies (in a good way!)…
I bet 95% of your guests will think you bought them and about 50% of them don’t know that people actually DIY invites these days 🙂

Thank you for you help girls, I don’t mind that they look handmade I just didn’t want them to look cheap or bad quality.

exactly. I’ve gotten to the point I can figure out where the invites were done that my FI’s parents get and leave out for everyone to see, lol. (If I’m gonna be family, I’m allowed to be a little nosy, right? especially if they leave it on the counter for anyone who walks into the kitchen to see…)

I’ve seen bought ones that looked just like this, so it can go either way… some “bought” ones are made by someone… I think the main giveaway with made ones is the printing… you can tell if it’s inkjet or sent to a press type of thing. If that makes sense.
