Hi ladies!!! My wedding is in 61 days and we’ve been working tirelessly to get all of our DIY projects done. I recently finished my biggest project and decided to share some of the hard work with y’all!
The biggest task was invitations. I decided early on that I wanted to go this route to save money. I know I saved some but I’m not sure it was enough to be worth all the hassle... given I went with a simple look but more intricate process. Those seals took me FOREVER to do.diy Photo Dump 1diy Photo Dump 2
Next, we finished two of our wedding signs recently. Printed the letters out with the cricut. The wood sign is plywood that my fiancé cut out and put together was some hinges!diy Photo Dump 3diy Photo Dump 4
We did table numbers with blocks of wood that my fiancé cut out and stained.diy Photo Dump 5
Lastly, I bought a bucket from Michaels and decided to do a bucket list instead of a guestbook! I created the template and printed these cards for people to write on!

    Of course! I ordered the envelopes off of a website that was going out of business. I think it was called envelopemall.com. It was $30ish for 250 A7 envelopes and 250 A1 envelopes.

    I got the template for the envelopes off of etsy for $3.99: https://www.etsy.com/listing/778862713/envelope-address-template-elegant-script?ref=yr_purchases

    I purchased the invitation template off of etsy as well for $10: https://www.etsy.com/listing/657011050/editable-wedding-invitation-set-template?ref=yr_purchases

    I tried to print them myself but I wasn't super fond of the way they all looked so I ended up having them printed on catprint.com. Best decision ever!!! They looked so much nicer and the paper was gorgeous. For 125 invites, rsvp's, and business card sized website inserts, it was $105.

    The ribbon was from Michaels. I ordered it offline and was able to utilize a 40% off coupon. I think it took 13 rolls of ribbon. Probably spend around $30 for all of it. https://www.michaels.com/1.5in-woven-slub-ribbon-by-celebrate-it/10216190.html

    The wax seal was personalized from Aliexpress. I spent like $6 on it!

    The wax was from Amazon. I purchased two boxes of it for $15.

    All in all, I spent around $200 for 115 invitations! You could probably do a really simple invite/rsvp from Ann's Bridal Bargains for less than that but I really wanted to do the seal/ribbon. Paying to have that done costs a fortune (I now know why!!! SUCH hard work.)

    My advice to you is to use catprint to print them. I chose linen paper because it looks nicer. Don't waste your time buying precut paper and trying to print yourself. You'll end up flustered and wasting money. Black and white is also much cheaper than colored invitations. If you want a more colorful suite, opt for a colored envelope or a pretty ribbonSmiley smile

    Hope this helps!

    Very thorough. Thank you so much! I have already made the pocket invitation using the Cricut, but I am having such a hard time printing the invites at home like you mentioned. I guess it's a good thing that our wedding got postponed, so now I have more time to work on it. Going to check out catprint. Thank you!
