Make your own Wedding Invitation Cards
Do you want to make your own wedding invitation cards? The kind of invitations that truly make a statement? Of course you do. Why else would you have found this site.
Why make your own
I'm sure I don't even need to sell you on the virtues of making your own invitations. You get exactly what you want, you get to have some fun making them but the kicker for most diy brides is that it's a whole lot cheaper making them yourself than it is to purchase them custom made. That is to say, if you don't factor in the time it will take you to complete the task, because they can take up a lot of your time, especially the design process. I know it takes me forever to decide even the simplest wedding invitation design, I can't help but change my mind every 5 minutes. But once you have settled on your design the job is 60% done. The gluing and folding and printing part can be over in a snap if you play your cards right, I'm sure your bridesmaids must be itching to get started on their "wedding tasks" Get them over to your place along with your mom and sisters for a girls night in. As they say many hands make light work.
For me, I couldn't imagine buying my invitations because I'm the crafty type that simply has to make my own. I couldn't have it any other way.
