galephys:  Haha. Yeah it’s crazy but I’m kind of known for super detailed invitations, so it’s no wonder I went insane on these ones. Though, at several points I’ve thought of giving up and doing what my cousin’s friend did- she bought fill-in-the-blank party invitations! Like, not even wedding themed ones. It didn’t say “wedding” anywhere on them!

I totally hear you on needing to feel in the mood. I have two “helpers” coming today because my aunt and cousin happen to be in town and “want to do wedding stuff!!!!!!!!!!!”. I am NOT in the mood after a disasterous craft session yesterday but I have no choice. But I won’t let them near my invitations! Hope they enjoy gluing together 250 favor boxes! ๐Ÿ˜›

Your invites are awesome! If someone said that to me I would say, “so basically what you’re saying is you only understand things up to primary/elementary school level as you don’t get my ‘high school’ invites.”

To call them overboard/highschool-ish just sounds dumb and immature… what highschoolers send wedding invites? That makes about as much sense as not comprehending a wedding dress code. Plus, to be critical in any way is just rude. 

Are most of the comments from people whom you handed them out to in person? This puts them in a position of having to give you a reaction (which most people would politly say they love them no matter what they really think). 

I think your invites are awesome and creative! Just laugh off people who like to diss others in order to make themselves feel better, don’t let it get the best of you.

I think your invitation is beautiful, and I have never heard of a wedding invitation that could be called “high schoolish”.

Also, no where is a phone call considered an adequate wedding invitation.

I also don’t know where anyone gets off crabbing about anyone else’s wedding.

Disregard unintelligent people such as these.

Speck_:  love this idea! OP you totally should do this lol.

But yeah I totally remember the time I got married in highschool and made these travel themed invitations-  said no-one ever   so try not to let comments that are hurtful or just plain odd get to you. People can be insensitive about all kinds of things. I mean, let’s face it, if you had a friend or relative that sent out DIY invitations and you honestly thought they were silly or ugly or over the top or whatever, would you really say something needlessly mean or thoughtless or would you keep it to yourself and be happy you’re invited to join their celebration? And I’m willing to bet that for every negative comment you’ve heard there are lots more people commenting on how cool and innovative these invites are!

The tickets are super cool, and wayyy better than the hearts and doves ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would have been tickled to get a travel-themed invitation. Annnd, invitations are sent our for a reason: So people aren’t always bugging you, asking for wedding details. Don’t listen to those people. Weddings are kind of a big deal!
