::::::::Starting My Own Invitation Business:::::::

Hey Ladies!! Im really thinking about starting my own invitation business..and I need your honest opinions here! I enjoyed making mine so much, that I want to start making them for other brides!! I'm really good with designing, and I can make more then just wedding invites, I could offer abit of everything - Wedding, Engagement, Showers, Birthdays, etc. A bonus that I have is that I'm not working right now, since DH and I are TTC, so I have so much free time it would be perfect :)

Here are some picture's of my own invitations, I made everything from scratch ( except the pocketfolds, diamonds and ribbon of course!) and some signs as well:

I think you should go for it!  Those look fabulous!  You could have your own little etsy shop!


What did people do before etsy???

I love it Bella! I think it would be perfect. I may need you... if you check out my bio you'll see that you invites are almost identical to the ones that I want!

I think they look great! I would maybe do a few more for brides so you have a bit more experience before you open up an etsy shop...but it looks like you are well on the way!

I agree with miss_em that I would do a couple more things before you open an etsy shop.  Looks like what you have is great though!

Definitely do it! I would make up a few samples of different things you can do - designs, colors, so when you do open a shop, people have a wider range of ideas. =)

I think they're gorgeous! I would buy those! I think you should give it a try! Make some more samples of what you can do and set yourself up little Etsy shop. :)

Those look great! That's how I started a few months ago!


FYI though, we're not supposed to advertise here on the forums. Just the classifieds/deals section if we change our profile to a business account on PW. I already made that mistake! lol

Looks like you did an awesome job on your own. I hope that everything works out well for you if you do decide to open your own shop.
