I can’t tell you how hard they are as I am one of the most design challenged people on the planet.  If you find yourself opting out of the DIY approach, check out vistaprints.com.  I got mine there and with a coupon I found on the internet, I got 200 for twenty dollars (plus a whole bunch of extras).  They turned out really nice.

You might think about taking an adult education course at a local college.  There is one locally here that has classes on the different design programs.  Wish they fit into my crazy schedule.

Have you thought about going to Michaels and getting a print it yourself invite? They always have good coupons, and you could always jazz it up by tying a ribbon on it or putting on some sparkles.

I like the print at home invites.  There are so many different types so you could find something that fits in with your colors, styles, or theme.  You can even just center align your text in word and then print them out at home or take them somewhere to be printed.  It can be as simple or as complicated as you make it.

Ohhh I would love more info about this too… I’m not really the DIY type, but I have a lot of time until my wedding, so I was thinking about doing some trial runs to see if I can save myself some money on invites and make something pretty!

Maybe the print at home kits are the way to go?

I would recommend DIY, so long as you start early….you don’t need to be too fancy or creative to create a nice looking invite.  Also, there are many sites that offer free templates that you could easily use and print at home.  There have been plenty of them here done on the boards.  Good lukc to you!  And, I agree that looking at the print at home ones is a good idea.  They offer so many options now and I have heard that you can use the 40% coupons to save more money!
