Hi all!
So I’ve been looking into wedding invitations that suit my vision or theme and I can’t seem to find anything I like. And if I do, they cost over 300 dollars! (Why are weddings so expensive!? Haha)

Anyway I looked into making my own that are exactly what I pictured and I came up with a unique and fun idea!
Here’s a mock up of it!It will be laser printed on vellum, with our names foiled over the toner/ink. The background is veneer paper made out of real wood slices!Tied together with a nice bit of twine. And yes the URL is on there because that is how we are doing RSVPs😬diy wedding invitations!? 1

Obviously the champagne foil will look better upon proper printing and adhering, but that’s the general idea.Saved a ton of money too😅I think it’s unique and very rustic yet elegant! 🙂Thoughts, concerns, critiques, or suggestions?!

    That is SO COOL!!! I am glad it's working out for you! I did my own custom printed ones with my own printer cuz I found the the same issue as you did pricing and not exactly how I wanted them

    Weddings are probably so expensive because they only happen once for most of us, so companies charge a lifetime. I love it!! I was considering making my own invitations as well. Well really I plan on DIYing as much of my decor as I can, including the altar, so that I can put more of my money towards food and photography.
