    I need to start doing my STD's, & Invitations, but do not know where to start. I've seen some nice invitations that look like booklets for the guests. I would love to go with the DIY method, but I'm really not talented with stationary, so I'm looking for someone who does this. Any suggestions....
    Also, I still have yet to come up with a monogram. Do I need a monogram before anything?

      Ok I will see if I can help you here. It may be a good idea to do a monogram first so you have that on all your stuff. It ties it all together.

      To make the save the date I would recommend doing just a simple magnet or postcard sized envelope. Here is a helpful site Save The Date Magnets, Wedding Invitations, Postcards for Weddings, Magnetic Favors
      I sent my STD's with out much thought but have put a lot of thought into my invites and I am happy I did. Let me know if you need anymore help and have fun!!

        Thanks for the useful info. Yeah, I actually looked into the magnet idea. My wedding is not too far from now, so I better get to those STD's. But the Invites, I'm very concerned with. I want something nice but do not want to spend a fortune either. I Like the Message in the bottle invites. How do I go about doing these, Any suggestions, if you have any...?

        Thanks

          Do you have colors or a theme picked out? I can do a monogram for you if you let me know what you want.

          I made my own pocketfold invites- it's very doable, just takes a little patience. Here's the thread with more info: http://bestdestinati....you-think.html

            We DIYed Message-in-a-Bottle for our save the dates. Our guests really liked them. They came out pretty cheap. They were just expensive to mail.

              I ordered my invites from Invitations by Dawn. They are very nice. You can google it if you'd like.

              I didn't want to deal with DIYing it! Much easier for me.

                  Thanks for that webiste stephanie, I'm def. gonna get my STD's from here. Your right about the Monogram thingy. I would quickly chose one, but I'm still deciding on my wedding colors.

                  Thanks again.

                    Wow, you are a true DIY Queen, Congrats!!! I just saw your invites and they are beautiful :0. I can imagine mailing them out must be costly due to the weighty paperstock. Maybe i'm wrong though. Anyway, I wish I gained the courage you have to do them myself. I'm so scared to give it a shot to only end up hating them and end up wasting more money getting already made ones later on..lol But seriously, I'm def. gonna look into the webites you mentioned. About the monogram, I'm so anxious to get one done already, one of the brides-2-b on here mentioned how it's best to first have one ready because it actually helps to bring everything together. But I haven't even decided on my wedding colors yet. I seem to be stuck on three right now, and I can't decide. Should this even matter? Maybe I could use them all three for the monogram, besides this would probobly make it stand out more right? Have you helped other brides in this forum create their monograms?
                    If so, I'd love to see your work :)

                      No, I didn't take pics of my save the date. I made them before I joined this forum. But I ordered my bottles from Specialty Bottle
