    I think they are great! STDs are usually not that formal anyway. She'll probably gets tons of phonecalls from people who just want to tell her how much they love them & then she'll realize she was wrong. People love unique invites. The traditional ones get so boring.

      Please do not pay your FMIL ANY attention! Those are great! The time & effort you put into those alone definitely make them even better. They are nice & personal which is also a great touch!

      Like Yari asked is she old school? Maybe she expected something more "traditional". But since you're having a DW those are perfect.

          Those are amazing! They are so cute... I would be so excited to get those in the mail. Your guests will love them!

          Plus as others mentioned... STDs are generally more informal. Do you have any thoughts/plans for your actual invites? If they are a bit more formal... maybe your FI could mention that to the parents and it might not be such a big deal.

            I absolutely love that idea! They're creative, unique and very appropriate for a DW.

            The way I look at it, its your day, your memories, your work, your way.

            They had their day to do how they wanted.

            You guys are the bestest!!! I think I'll send you all the STDs and tell FMIL to stay home.

            Thanks for the positive feedback (and the money you're saving me by not having to go to group therapy)!! I really needed it today!

            Happily married since 2008

                Wow, those look like they took a lot of planning and hard work... and they are PERFECT for a DW! Seriously, I wish I had that kind of patience (and skill, hehe) to come up with something so creative. Be proud of what you did and nicely remind her that what's "proper" for a NY wedding isnt the same as a DW... FMIL and I have had that conversation atleast a gazzilion times!

                  First of all, these came out sooo nice!!!! Secondly, why are some people so close-minded Maybe you need to remind your FMIL that you're having a DW so it won't be a formal, stuffy one with white STD's and white invitations.
