Our invitations are printed!

I was dreading the thought of designing them myself and discovered DIYPaperie's Etsy site through reading Bride On a Shoestring's blog. Thank goodness for them both.

Husband and I picked the one below, sent her our color combo and that was that! I spent $25 on the PDF printable design and about $15 bucks on 5x7 cardstock (I haven't bought envelopes yet). With every invite order you receive a mailable RSVP card as well but we're having people respond through our wedding website.

Here are our lovelies ~

I'm very pleased with the way they turned out, and not the least bit upset that we didn't splurge on letterpress. I respect and admire the antique art of papergoods but can't even for a minute consider spending precious money on something people will recycle! My heart is in woodcuts, and if I had the time and resources wouldn't it be so cool to have woodcut prints for invitations? Yes, it would.


  1. Oh shiiiiiiiiiit. Those are nice and cheap. I die of envy.

  2. They are truly perfect. Love the design and the price is amazing! Can't wait to see more of your wedding - I'm a bride to be too. Thank you for the great ideas!

  4. oh wow - that's BEAUTIFUL!! What a keepsake too!
