DIY Couture Wedding Invitations

Hey DIYers, There’s a big, fat omission in the directions/illustrations for the Couture Silk Invitation in The DIY Bride: 40 Fun Projects For Your Ultimate One-of-a-Kind Wedding on pages 35 – 41. It looks like the cutting diagram and info for the pocketfold are missing. If you follow the book directions, you’ll make a pocket fold that’s 6″ wide x 9 1/4″ long. Wrong, wrong, wrong! The finished size is should be 4 1/8″ x 9 1/4. So, once you laminate the fabric to the cardstock for the pocket fold, you’ll need to trim the laminated piece to 8 1/4″ wide, not 12″ as demonstrated in the book. This also affects the insert sizes. Wherever the directions call for 4 1/4″ width (either cutting or MS Word settings), that needs to be changed to 4 1/8″ (4.125″). I do most sincerely apologize for any confusion this has caused! I know how frustrating incorrect directions can be.

Wedding Invitation From "Stranger"

2006-06-12 23:04:21 by -

Just got an invitation from my cousin's daughter. My cousin died several years ago and I have never met the daughter. She addressed the invitation to Mrs. (I've never been married) and misspelled my name. This young woman lives in San Diego and I'm in SF, so I'm not compelled to attend the wedding. Am I wrong to feel this invite is just sort of an invoice or should I be honored to be invited? My cousin and I lived in different parts of the country and didn't see each other but a few times in our lives. I'm wrestling with this and would appreciate some input.

    • It would help to have more information. Are you planning to get DIY invites from the craft/stationery store. I think if you would check around to the local printing places, you would find their prices reasonable if you don t need anything with too many images or fancy cuts on it. Let s say you want some thing nice and classic like this: are a lot of ways you could do it. The wording on this one lists the parents, but if you and your fiance are doing your own, then it would be something like this. You are cordially invited to witness the Marriage of Amanda Kathryn Bell to Michael Damien …
