Stephanie's DIY Pocketfolder Invites are Finally DONE! *With Pics!*

Recommended Posts

Holy Cow! I am NOT a DIY person! I about died getting these dang things done! I had 3 breakdowns over them in the last 2 weeks, where after I needed to apologize to my FI and thank him for marrying me anyways even though I am a crazy bride! Everything that could go wrong did, from smudges on the cardstock, graphics problems, envelope problems, cutting problems...even glue/adhesive issues! I could go on.

 

However, I ordered my supplies from Cards & Pockets and I love them! They are wonderful to work with and their products are fantastic. We had some issues with some backstock not coming in on time so they pulled part of it from another order that wasn't shipping yet to get me mine and then covered 2nd day air for me! They are amazing!

 

So after all that, I do love them. I hope you do too!

Ooo lala. These are awesome.

 

Just out of curiosity did they turn out with it to do them DIY? I see the final product is awesome but IYO would it have been better to purchase and save yourself the stress?

STEPHANIE!!! Those invitations are beautiful. All your hard work definitely paid off and I'm sure your guests will love them.

 

Your pocketfolds are exactly what I have been looking for at cards & pockets. I'd like to pick your brain about a few things:

 

(1) did you buy the pre-cut card stock? If so, what printer did you use to print? If not, how did you print and cut your card stock? Seems like a lot of work either way!

 

(2) how much postage did each invite require?

 

Thanks in advance for your help! Excited to hear your answers... :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
