Picture from The Knot
This weekend I was going over invitations with two of my clients, Anna & Scott. Since it was on my mind, I thought I would post information on Do It Yourself Invitations. It really is fairly simple..you just have to be creative! Yes, it can be a little time consuming, but think about how much money you are going to save! Like I had suggested to Anna, this is something that your bridesmaids can help you with. Have a fun "invitation party" with your bridesmaids and anyone else who wants to help. Have a bottle of champagne some desserts and make it a party! Being on a budget doesn't mean that you have to stress about things..it just means that you have to be a little more creative..and it gives you a chance to hang out with your closest BFFs while you are still a bachelorette.
Any stationary store should have the items that it takes to do your own invitations. Check Hobby Lobby or any other craft store that is in your area to see what kind of papers that they have. While you are in "saving money mode" go ahead and make your programs to match your invitations! I wouldn't make them exactly alike, but play off of one another to make it all tie in.
