Well...according to The Knot I'm way behind on figuring out my wedding invitations (even though the wedding is still five and a half months away...?) so I've decided to start thinking about what to do!!
My original plan was to DIY them all the way. This is a DIY/craft blog right??? But I'm getting a little overwhelmed by the idea :-/
My original inspiration came from this tutorial over on the Silhouette Blog.
I really liked the idea but I'm a little confused about executing it and how everything would fit together. Does the envelope with the bow go inside another larger envelope that you mail everything in? The actual invitation would not be that big either. The white square part could only be about 4.3 x 4.3 inches due to the envelope size constraints with the Silhouette, which is pretty small. Do you think that is too small for a wedding invitation? I also know it would take a long time to cut out 100 cards, design and print 100 invites, assemble everything, etc.
I started looking online for invitations. I found these two that I liked:
But for 100 invites they will cost about $250 dollars...about $2.50 an invite. Is that expensive for a low budget wedding? I don't even know.
Do you think it would be worth it to DIY and save some cash...but have to put a lot of time and possibly frustration into it, or just fork out the cash and order them and not have to worry about it? Any advice or more DIY ideas would be appreciated from you all who have been through this before!!!
