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! 😛

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.”

MexiPino: boxes sure will be fun for them. I hope you also have 100 paper pompom flowers for them to make 😀
FromA2B2013: I love that idea! Maybe having a reminder magnet promotes it to MS level and a meal choice pushes it to PhD, LOL.

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.

ktsteimel: yeah, all that comes from FI’s family. His parents didn’t even take the initations, they said just count them in and chose the meal. He went and RSVP’ed for them. Regular mail will take a week or 2 to deliver even within the city, so fiance went and handed it to everybody. As far as I know, my side of family and friends said thank you and later messaged me with compliments on the invites. I’m not sure what other people on his side said, I only know of these 2 cases.
I guess his family is just not into formalities or making things pretty. They don’t celebrate most of the holidays and if they do get a birthday present for sombody, they’d just hand it out exaclty as they bought it, in the store bag. Luckily I taught my fiance to wrap my presents and that presentation is half the joy. 🙂

DanaWeddingGuest: I guess it’s changing now, but 7 years ago I was invited to 2 weddings in the same city, both about a week prior by a phone call from the bride or groom. Cosidering that most of the weddings are planned in a month or 2, it’s understandable.

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!

RobbieAndJuliahaha: that’s true, I’ve got tons of compliments on our invites and just these two were.. ugh. I’m going to have to coach myself into being nice to the guy during the wedding))

The tickets are super cool, and wayyy better than the hearts and doves 😉 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!
