I’ve made all my invitations through Zazzle.com and I could not be happier with them. It’s easy and completely customizable. I found a pinup image online and used it in photo shop to create my invite image. They are having a 50% off sale right now and they do all the time.
Here they are!

These are cute, but it’s a little strange to me that you’re designing and buying invitations for your own bachelorette party.

I think they are really cute, the only thing that strikes me is the word debauchery. I know it is mostly used now to just mean “partying” but that isn’t what it actually means and it always gives me pause when I see it used in that context… lol

Also, I would blur out the personal information.

@windcriesamy: Yeah I agree, the maid of honor is the person who is in charge of all of that usually

I would edit out your personal info

@janetsnakehole: Super cute! I love the wording, but maybe that’s because it’s something my friends and I would say to each other (esp. “It’s a Celebration Bitches” lol). I’m sure you and your girls will have a blast.

@janetsnakehole: I would be having your Maid/Matron of Honor doing these invitations instead of you. I think etiquette states that the Maid/Matron of Honor and the BMs are usually the ones who plan and pay for your bachelorette party. I don’t like the word bitches but then I think depends on the context of the party and also how your friends would react. And I wouldn’t have said debauchery, maybe revelry instead? Otherwise those are very cute. 🙂

Yeah, I like them the way they are. I’ll blur out the info. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister and she has an 18 month old with no disposable income. The bms are planning and putting together everything else, this is something I wanted to do because I really enjoyed making the invitations for the wedding and (GASP) my shower as well. All my girls are spread out across the state and aren’t available to get together and plan so most things are done via email.
While ‘etiquette’ might state that they pay for everything, that isn’t always a possibility for the people you love enough to have stand up with you on your wedding day. We’re paying for the wedding ourselves as well, which traditionally is paid for by the brides parents. Not an option. I wanted to design them so I did. I paid for them and I’ll pay postage as well. I have a hard time allowing people to spend money on me and this is no exception. I’m a full time nanny so I have a good deal of free time during the day when most people would not. It has allowed me to be superorganized and ahead of schedule. I’m happy with that.

I think the main reason why many people would see this as an “etiquette issue” is that bridal showers, and to some extent bachelorette parties, are parties focused around receiving gifts. If you’re throwing yourself a party where the sole purpose is to give you gifts, it’s kind of tacky.

People don’t always throw bachelorette parties or bridal/couples shower to get gifts. 🙂 I think it depends on the people.

@cmbr: Just because I paid for the invitations does not mean i’m throwing myself a party expecting gifts. There is no mention of gifts anywhere. I didn’t include my size because I really don’t want people buying me stuff. I want to go out and celebrate with my favorite people and have penis cake, and have a time to see people I haven’t seen in a long time and who aren’t the bachelorette party type that I probably won’t be able to spend any quality time with on the wedding day.
They are planning everything else. I’m helping with decor ideas. I have free time, most of them do not.
I did the invitations. Chill the eff out. I am proud of them.
Tried to blur out info but it’s too late to edit. my sister maid the email address just for wedding stuff and rsvps and the address is not a big deal either.
Tacky, indeed. You people really know how to turn good intentions into something negative
