So this wedding is costing what feels like an arm and a leg so I refuse to spend hundreds of dollar on invites..so I am attempting to make them. Attached is my first pass.
Our wedding colors are pink, champagne and black with a nyc theme.
The invites are on champagne paper. I also have an example of something I might put on the hotel welcome bag.
For the placecards, we are taking pictures around the city of different places and designating those as the table numbers instead of a traditional table number – people turn over their place card and that is where they sit – the example on this one is “gansevoort street”
What does everyone think? I am the least artistic/crafty person I know and this is my first pass – I still need a paper cutter so I can cut them straight…any suggestions?

Does the paper have a shimmer to it? Or is that the flash?
Either way, they look great! DIY invitations all the way! (And as a tip, don’t worry if the invtiations don’t all look the same, guests will not be comparing notes.)
I love the table names too! Would you be using the same photo from the escort card on the table name cards themselves?

Yeah..the black paper has a shimmer – I am going to switch that though to regular black cardstock bc the black shimmer paper gives off like a grey look – but I am going to keep the metallic champagne paper.
Yup…same photos on each of the tables to identify where people sit!

my only comment is you have “reception to follow” so is there a seperate card for reception details? just mentioning it for just in case but otherwise great job

Typically you only put “reception to follow” if it will be taking place at the same location as the ceremony. I don’t think that’s the case for you…
