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 :)
