Has anyone bought their invitaitons from michaels?  I did because they were on sale, but I'm not sure how they will look once they are put together and sent out.  Any insight?

I haven't yet, but we plan on buying them from Michael's in a few weeks. We are going with one of the folding envelope card sets. I think its black and white. Its not exactly what I wanted, but it saves us a ton of cash. We are going to also buy the little wax seals from Michael's and put them on the instead envelope. I think they will look great. I am actually pretty excited about doing them. I had DIY projects because normally you have to cut things and use glue, but with these projects they are pre-assembled.

 

I would love to see pictures of any finished Michael's Invites!

 

You can always buy additional embelishments online if you want to dress them up a bit. I might buy some bright envolope liners to spice up the black and white invites.

I bought these orange and cream ones, but I'm going to use blue ribbon, instead of the brown, because those are my wedding colors.  And i'm going to print thiem in royal blue ink as well. 

 

I agree, I 'm excited to do-it myself as well.  If I tried those other DYI projects it would like like a 2nd grade art project...lol.

 

Where are you going to print them out?  And are you printing on the envelope or hand-writing them?

My undergrads is in graphic design so I will probably do something fun for the printed portion. I was thinking about using my printer at home, however if the stock is too thick or odd shaped I might just give the design files to a local printers and make them deal with it.

 

When you said your DYI projects would look like a 2nd grader I got a laugh out of that. Mine would look just like that. I am good at designing stuff ,but I HATE crafts. I would have glue on everything and probably just start crying hehe.

 

I will probably print my envelopes unless a family member wants to do them for me. I am dyslexic and have unreadable hand writing. Chances are only half of the invites would get their.

 

When are you going to create yours? You soooo have to post a pictures.

 

I was pretty impressed with all the chooses Michael's had. I looked at Target/Walmart and online. They by far had the best templates sets. To do them how I want with an online vendor or store would probably cost me hundreds. Which I just cant afford after spending so much on everything else.

 

I might use Michael's for my AHR as well.

 

I have gotten a few wedding invites in the mail lately and I think by far the Micheal's ones look a ton better. if you do them right.

I bought invites from Michaels also. Just plain white with a pearl border but I plan on 'dressing them up a bite'. I'll have to play around with the font, colors, etc for printing and I did buy ribbon, flowers and cardstock in my wedding colors for added details.

 

Check out Michaels website for some ideas on invites.

 

Good luck and post back whatever you end up doing.

Hi Kristamarie!  I actually purch my invitations from A.C Moore but I felt they were kinds of boring so I add my own special touches to them to jazz it up a bit and I  loved the way they turned out

    • what kind of headpiece did you wear? or are planning to wear?
    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
