I really don't want to spend $800 - $900 on invites!! How much of a cost savings was it to DIY?
They actually didn't take me that long... I think what took the longest for me was picking fonts that I liked, and getting the spacing right before printing. I bought the inserts as a packet deal, so they were already cut to the right size. I did cut the pink accent layer myself, but that didn't take long at all. I printed all of the pieces myself, put the flower and pearls on, and made the logo stickers for the envelope... I'd say once I decided on fonts, etc, and started printing, all together it took me about 10 hours, spread out over a few nights. I looked at my reciepts and I think it was a total of about $60 for 25 invitations. So just over $2 each.

That really isn't that bad, and the cost savings is great! I think I may have to look into DIY invites a little further :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
