    These are so gorgeous and the snitch is amazing. I definitely think this is something I’ll DIY for my own (future) wedding!

    This is such a brilliant idea! I always think that creating your own wedding invites can be totally achievable and so much more special and personalised… especially with things like Etsy where you can get templates!

    I will totally create my own invites for a next event I launch – there’s nothing nicer than thick stock to make them feel luxurious! x

      So true what you say about good quality stock paper and I think that is one of the main key items to making them really special.
      I’d love to see your invites for your next event, make sure you share them online 🙂

    Love love love the golden snitch!!! Such a unique embellishment for your invitations and reflects who you are =) We DIYed our save the dates and invitations too…even folded my own “lace” inner envelopes each by hand from large doilies. Doing it yourself is a labor of love, but it does save you a lot of money! (totally worth it)

      Thanks Lottie! I found planning my wedding so hard as most people you talk with have only done it once, and trying to plan everything can be stressful so I really wanted to share my tips to help future brides out. I hope you enjoyed all the wedding inspiration. <3

    Good on you for doing your own invites! They turned out beautifully. I’m currently planning my wedding and it’s expensive however I’m picking and choosing where to spend our money. Invites were important to us to set the mood for the wedding and I like supporting small local business so we’ve decided to get ours made… We DIY’d our engagement invitations and it was so much work/stress so that definitely spurred us to pay for invites too!

      I love that you are deciding what is important to you both and what you can save some money on Sarah. Like you said weddings are expensive, and if we can save a penny here or there why not?! I am actually a graphic designer so invites where an easier one for me to do a bit of DIY there. I do know heaps of ladies who made their own wedding cake, which I wouldn’t attempt myself, but is all about using your skills to your advantage. I am sure you have the beauty angle covered!! <3

    Can I ask how many invites you made and hownmych time it took?

      Sure Chrissy! I made about 50 invites and to be honest, I am not sure how long it took me all up, as I did break each job up over a few days, but maybe 3-4 hours? The printing and cutting took no time, but putting the cards altogether and into envelopes was probably the longest part. Hope this is helpful for you.

    Hello! Thank you so much for your post!! I made my wedding invites a year ago and it literally saved me hundreds! Although it is tedious at times, it truly is easy. I used invitation pockets (i ordered them from Cards and Pockets.com) and used cardstock I purchased from staples. I wish brides would realize how easy it is to make their own invites, so they could save money and put it towards other things…. like the honeymoon.

    Silly questions, but what is A5 and A4? What do they mean?And what did you use as resopnse/rsvp cards?

      Sorry, A4 & A5 is Australian and UK paper sizing, similar I guess to your Letter paper size? I actually used the same paper and changed up the design a little and used it for RSVP, I actually cut the paper in quarters for that (instead of half for the invites). Good Luck! 🙂
