I made DIY wedding invites they are printed card scrolls with a damask pattern and Edwardian script font, tied with a black ribbon due to some needing to be posted I have made boxes to put them in, I thought it would be a nice personal touch to make the invites but im worried my SO family will make bad remarks about the fact that there handmade they like to judge me for everything. I like the invites but now every little imperfection jumps out at me like a sore thumb have I made a mistake making my own?

Can we see pics?
Personally I think just the idea of doing your own and using scrolls is awesome! Just remember that everyone already does the standard!

Do you have any pics to post so we can give a better response? I DEFINITELY don’t think it is wrong doing your own, I’m just having a hard time envisioning your though.

Doing your own invites isn’t tacky. And I’ve actually seen some invites in the form you describe… scroll inside a pretty box. I thought it was a cute idea and a little different from what most people do. Obviously with DIY projects it’s not going to be 100% like getting it done by a professional, but I suspect you did a good job. It also shows quite the bit of dedication and work.
I think the deeper issue here is that you feel your in laws won’t be happy with anything you do. You would probably feel the same way if you went the traditional route… did I pick the right paper? Did I choose the right wording? Etc. Don’t worry! There is no way you can please everyone especially people who are hard to please.
What does your fiance and your family/friends think about the invites? If they say they’re nice, then you should believe them.

If you try to please everyone, you’ll end up pleasing no one. Don’t worry about what others think, if you like them, then thats enough. 🙂
