I don’t have any personal experience, but it would probably work to have an invitation made up in both English and Spanish.  Try contacting a few of the vendors who sell invitations you like and ask what their policies are for multilingual families.   Feliz…navidad!  =)

My Invitation Lady (http://www.myinvitationlady.com/Default.aspx) might be able to work with you even though you’re not local.  She made my Save-The-Date Cards – in both Japanese and English.  She even downloaded Japanese fonts and everything!  All I had to do was send her the Japanese text.  Even though she doesn’t speak Japanese, she was very detail-oriented and made sure not to miss a single character.  She was very easy to work with, and I highly recommend her.

@julyweddinglovebirds:  I’m just sending our english invite with a personalized spanish insert that I wrote myself. I’m calling those guests ahead of time and letting them know, inviting them over the phone. My fam would feel weird if they got an invite and I never verbally invited them. It’s a cultural thing so beware 🙂

I think I am just going to go with Spanish because although most of my families are bilingual, the predominant language is Spanish in my family for those that only speak English I will give them a call. Still looking for vendors as well in the Bay Area, California.

I’m doing mine from mixbook.com and just copying the one side of the template onto the back (since they don’t charge extra for it) and changing it to spanish. So it is the same exact design, one side english, one side spanish. Hope this helps!

I know this is an old post, but when I did my invites, I needed to do some in Dutch for my husbands family.  I ended up purchasing DIY kits from Michaels and just printing some in English and some in Dutch!

Looking at the cost of things I’m strongly considering just DIY invitations, thank you ladies!

Hmm most of my guests know English and not Spanish or both and only a few know only Spanish and not English. I think I will send Spanish invites to the people who only know Spanish and English to the ones to everyone else.

Good luck with your DIY, I am doing it that way and having a hard time finding a template I like.

@julyweddinglovebirds:  I did my invites in Spanish and English. I actually bought my invitations at Michaels and it comes with a template online. BUT I googled examples of spanish invite templates and went from there. It came out really nice and everyone loved it.

We DIY-ed our invites, so we did one in Spanish, one in English. Consider the mail system where you’re sending the invitation. There is none where we were sending them, so some people received them by email.
