That was a pretty detailed crash-course. My eyes kind of hurt when brides post their proofs and the entire thing is done in a script or a billion different fonts and colors.

This is amazing, thank you.

I’m working on our invitation design right now; I would trade my left kidney for your critique.

Thanks for all of the tips! These are great things to keep in mind. I second the fonts tips. It’s so painful to see abuse of script.

Awesome advice – thanks very much!

I learnt an envelope lesson the hard way this weekend – thought I’d found the perfect size to put 6×4 photo in, had a couple of mm leeway both sides.. wrong!! Lucky my envelopes were cheap or I would have been super cranky.

Oh my goodness! This is SO helpful! I kid you not, I’ve spent AT LEAST 35 hours working on finding invites. I want to print them through cardsandpockets.com and assemble them ourselves, but have not been able to find a design that is reasonably priced and would work with the the pockets, and I have concerns doing this for 150 invitations when I’ve never done anything like this before. I am a teacher and on Spring Break this week, so I was really hoping to get them assembled this week, but since I haven’t figured this out, that clearly is not going to happen. 

Do you have any suggestions of where I might find a pocket design? I have sent about 30 emails (no joke) to etsy designers to try to get a design that I could send to get printed, but those that I like (simplistic and elegant) are all very expensive or else haven’t responded regarding selling me the design. I even started designing an invite in Word, but have some serious concerns about trying to do it myself since all of the design stuff is so foreign to me. Any chance you know of a place that I could get a digital design for a pocket invite for a reasonable price (i.e. $25-$50)?

THANK YOU! πŸ™‚

Thank you this was helpful! I could you some invitation advice – what weight cardstock do you think is better – 110lb or 130lb? The 130 felt a little heavy to me, but it was a little sample in a booklet so I don’t know!
