    So I decided to save myself some money and DIY my invites and I ordered supplies from cards and pockets.

    I made some truly bad decisions while making these invites (knowing that ink doesn't stay well on metallic paper, I still insisted on having metallic Tiffany Blue invites, and metallic envelopes) Needless to say, I dealt with it - laid every invite and envelope out flat to dry for 2-3 days, to be safe. I still had some smudges, mostly on the envelopes, but nothing too major.

    Even though it took so much work and soooo much trial and error, I don't think I would have done it any differently if I could go back. I know that my invites are exactly what I want and totally 100% original.

    I apologize in advance, these are pictures of my VERY rough draft (not finished edges, printing just a bit off). I mailed out all of the good copies yesterday, and had no invites left over except for my draft. Hopefully I can borrow my sister's copy to get pictures of the real final product.

      They look amazing, not DIY at all! I would have guessed they were done by a professional. Congrats!
