Your invitations look absolutely amazing! Your guest should totally be impressed. They are exactly what I want for my invitations, but I have no clue on how to make them and do not want to spend the $$$$$ to have them custom made. Where did you find the woven background paper? How did you do it?? Would you still do the invites yourself if you were only making 20?

Not sure if I'm even using the right terminology as I am not a DIYer.

They look great! All your work paid off. We ended up using a professional printer for the same reason. (And I'd do it again to keep what little sanity I have left!)

Thanks everyone!!! I am now getting my response cards back and some people actually wrote that they loved the invitation right on the response card... I felt so special... they were so much work I love hearing that the guests appreciate them :)

To answer your questions:

 

1. I ordered the woven paper from papermojo.com - just search "woven grass paper" on their website... I ordered the "brown harvest" color

 

2. They werent really hard to make, just time consuming. My advice to you is if you have the money, use a commercial printer. I spent around $350.00 on thermography printing, and that covered all paper cutting (including the grass paper), the actual invite, response card, hotel and travel card, and a welcome dinner card. I think it was definitely the right move for me because my printer wasn't cutting it and I would have wasted TONS of paper trying to get them just right. If it's something you are serious about I can totally walk you through it. Oh, and double sided tape from paper source was the best thing to enter my life since I discovered circle cutters (I know, I am a little obsessed with this wedding)!

 

3. All in all, I probably ended up spending around $750, but if I had paid to have them made it would have been atleast twice as much, so it was totally worth it... 100 invitations was a lot, but knowing that my guests loved them was so rewarding... I would totally do it again.

 

Hope this helps!
