DIY Invitations Finished!

At last, I've completed the invites. I used Microsoft Publisher to design them. With the help of my fantastic 'print guy' at a local printers, they turned out beautifully on metallic and smooth cardstock. Paper and pocket folds are from www.cardsandpockets.com. The RSVP postcards are on their way from www.vistaprint.com. I also designed them in Publisher. I love the way they turned out with the finishing touches of the monogram detail with a crystal embellishment and satin ribbon.

Thanks ladies.

I forgot to mention...the estimated cost including printing came to a whopping total of $3.75 each. Not bad, huh.

Now I have to wait another 2 months to mail them...hahaha. I started them so early because some of our 'out-of-country' guests need them to apply for visas.

Thanks for the kudos!

d1rtymart1n1: I haven't decided on the postage yet. We'll probably go with whatever the post office has.

SeptBride: Good color choice ;)

Hulaprncs: It really wasn't too difficult. Start designing early so you don't feel rushed. Experiment with fonts and layouts til you get want you want. I had it all planned out long before they were printed and assembled.

You're invites are beautiful! I'm a little invite snob and those are by far one of the best I've seen. Great job! So clean and classic. Love it!
