Oh yeah, definitely worry about that!  No matter how pretty they are 99% of them will end up in the trash (or at least hopefully the recycling) anyways.  Besides, we’re pretty much the only ones who pay attention to that sort of thing!  Your guests will just be thrilled to be invited.

@Lexatron, not to worry!!! we are always harder on ourselves then others are. And i agree, your guests won’t critique the invitations..they will appreciate your invite and be excited for your wedding day!!

Oh, Lexatron! I had so many troubles with making my invites, too! I got to the same point as you did, but I think mine still look adorable and I’m sure yours do, too. Don’t stress (I say that, but it’s harder to practice what I preach!) !

As caitlanc said, 99% of those invitations are going to end up in the garbage – which is just sad, right? But, I too, can admit that two of my bridesmaids have gotten married in the past 11 months, both went DIY for invites and I even threw theirs away. I probably spent over 200+ hours working on my own invitations (without a finger of help) and they turned out, beyond-my-wildest-dreams awesome… but you know what? They have been out with my guests for a week now and probably are already in a dumpster somewhere 🙂 No one will remember!

*HUGS* I’m sorry that your invites didn’t turn out the way you wanted.

That said, the other posters are right…people really won’t care, and even the prettiest of invites end up in the trash/recycle. Sigh.

I got a kit on clearance for mine since it was one of the least things I worried about.  LIke everyone else said, they usually only end up in the trash anyway…don’t stress

Things go wrong all the time, i had a friend diy her own flowers and she ordered them 4 days out and they mostly died by the time of the wedding. after the wedding no one remembered the flowers tho–they were too busy talking about the fabulous dress and great food. only brides notice the details…and how we do obsess over them!

**HUGS**  I can completely identify with you, I feel physically sick everytime I think about them.  You’re right, everyone throws away their invitations.  Can you even remember what the invitations of other weddings you’ve gotten even looked like?  Probably not.  Even if you do remember, do you even have any opinion on them?  Probably not.
