im doing the same type of diy invites, i was figuring it would take me a month or so to finish everything( thats working on invites in the evenings after work and some on the weekends). with help from bridesmaids it would go faster!

I made similar invites and after I got the invite part back from the printers, it took me, my Fiance, and my parents approximately 8 hours to put them all together…and it sucked.  We did have to make about 250 off them though, which is more invites than most people need, so it might take you less time.  That time did not include addressing all the envelopes, so that took another several hours.

it took me 2 weeks to get all my invites out with school in between. One word of advice, start early! Things WILL go wrong. I would have a bit of concern about your wood-grain card stock aswell. The printer might struggle with it it might be difficult to read. Good luck!

I think my invites took a total of 16 hours (I designed, printed, cut and assembled at home).

I made these as well.  They are fairly time consuming.  I only work on them a few times a week, maybe an hour or so at a time and I am about 1/2 way done with the 70 I am making.  I am also making everything though, including the inserts, printing, design, etc.
