MY DIY Invites and a few other crafts!

So today, since i've been home because of my surgery i decided to knock out a major hurtle in my wedding planning and worked on my invites. I originally made invites from scratch, but having diffculty to print them somewhere, went a different DIY route and bought those pre-made kits. It was cute, sort of in my color scheme, and fairly cheap. I bought them from micheals, 3 boxes (which i may or may not use the third box) useing a coupon for 95 bucks total! (then i spent an additional 33 on a new ink for my printer)

So tell me ladies what do you think of my invites/wording?

I know the RSVP's arnt centered, and are too close to the top but i spent hours getting it to fit on the card where it wouldnt print over the birds... so i settled for decent since it wasnt the actual invite.

I'm also working on designing a little insert for family who have small children, that i will only toss into the invites that i know the family has small children. Feel free to tell me what you think on the wording and such. It's round because i have a button machine and similar color card stock to the invites... and a paper cutter for the button machine.... so i figured id have neat little cards evenly cut if i used it. 

.... then i want to share some crafts in the next post!

 and then i wanted to share with you all the hard work my mom is putting into the wedding. So far she has decorated my toasting flutes, cake cutting utensils, made the flower girl basket, re-made the ring bearer pillow, is working on the card basket, and helped design/make my center pieces! it makes me so happy that she is so into it and is crafting up a storm!

so let me know what you ladies think!

 The invites are ADORABLE!!!!!  We scored invites from Michaels, too, but ours were boring!!!  In the end, the invites get tossed anyway, so great deal!!!  This is defintely something not to stress over cost with!

 

The wording seems great to me!  And I love the little punch out idea for the kids!!!!

 

And applause to having an awesome mom!!!!  What a great help she is!!!!!!!!

 Thank you miss hammy. Do you think I should make another insert for my wedding website as well? I'm trying to figure out how to pass along my registry along without actually asking for gifts, money or going hey here's my registry. :P

Are you not having a bridal shower?

 

I would send your wedding site via email... Non-formal, per say.
