DIY Wedding Invitations Rustic

Rustic DIY wedding: Laura + Thomas | Real Weddings | 100 Layer Cake

The Inspiration:

The design of our invitation is very simple and i wanted to have that vintage feel…because that’s the theme of our wedding. The color i chose are earth tones which became the color palette of our wedding with some hint of pastel to add some girlieness.

The Materials:
I used our home printer to print the invitations and maps/directions on vellum papers. I used recycled taupe brown fiber paper for the pocketfold, recycled taupe brown envelops for the outer(biggest envelope) and RSVP envelopes. I used 5-1/4×2-5/8 manila tags as the RSVP card. To get that vintage price tag look, i soaked the tags overnight in a bowl with 5 tea bags then i laid them out to dry. Then i used martha stewart Craft punchers to design the edges of the invitation, RSVP card, and pocketfold.
I ordered custom rubber stamps from froyoo through Etsy for the return address and RSVP.

DIY Brides Beware: Wedding Shop!

2009-05-07 06:15:05 by jennut1

I am a DIY bride, and I've relied on the internet to provide most of my extraordinary deals. For example, my invitations were a total cost (inc. all postage) of $92. My invites were very chic, and I have gotten tons of compliments on them! We have purchased nearly everything online, from a waterproof camera for the honeymoon (and the honeymoon!), to our wedding rings. My number one site for this:
Some of my bigger fears of shopping online has been getting things in time for the wedding, and correcting problems that arise in a timely fashion.

    I m trying to surprise my wife, when we married, I was on my way to Iraq so it was just signing the papers before I left (in case I didn t come back). Now that I m back I want to give her a proper wedding. This is to the person that said this is a Vow renewal . This will indeed be a wedding, you only say vows, during a WEDDING.

    • Yes. Start researching wedding stuff, the new thing is rustic personal diy weddings . No one has 25k to spend on a wedding when youre young and most parents arent helping much now a days. There are places you can skimp- like spending 1 on invitations- and places you ll want to splurge - like the food. I m getting married in August with a guest list of 150 people, and we re not spending more than 6k. Were having it in a park, with the ceremony in the gazebo and the reception in a barn. I m making a ton of stuff myself (thank god i have 6 bridesmaids to help), and getting all of my inspiration from …

    • Save save save. throw any extra money you have at the end of the month into a savings account. save change. put all those left over quarters and pennies and nickles and dimes in a jar, cash it in once and a while, stick it all in the savings account. there is a lot of stuff you can diy for way cheaper than it is to rent. you can get stuff to make centerpieces from walmart. my fiance and i priced it out one day, a glass fish bowl, some of those colorful rocks in our wedding colors, and a few tea lights came out to $4 a centerpiece. the exact same thing would have cost us $15 EACH to rent from …
