DIY Wedding Invitations

I have not exactly been discreet about my wedding preparation. If you have been reading my posts, you are one of those in the know of this little DIY endeavor of mine.

Just to share with you lovely fellas, one of the things that really keep me busy lately is DIY-ing our wedding invites. Boy has it become a nightly thing. As in I am this close to getting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to excessive Photoshopping (yehesss! as if I'm an expert. which obviously I'm not because otherwise I should have gotten things done fast and won't have to be lingering on PS for weeks now! Lol.) while right hand also gets shaky and sweaty at times due to so much handwriting (eew!) Aside from that I am the most frugal bride you'll ever meet, I also aim to make things a little personalized here so yes, this is so me to DIY things. (Note to self: future blog entry on all my other DIYs)

These are my realizations while completing 40 pieces of our 4-paged invites:

  1. It's like hitting two birds with one stone. I got my invites for less without the worry of having any invites with the same style and art (as in arte. hehe) as mine. As I write, I have already spent a total of 250php and I'm already around 60% done. I'm anticipating a total damage of 1k. Not bad, huh?
  2. It made me get attached to my Principal Sponsors, Secondary Sponsors, and Entourage more. I have written their names 40 friggin times not including those I had to scrap due to errors! I mean, who does that?
  3. My Metal (a brand of metallic pen if you're not familiar), just like in grade school, is still amazing! The dead pen-collector in me just got ressurrected. 
  4. I realized that I actually have calligraphy and Photoshop skills. Killer combo! Haha
  5. It's laborious. Seriously. Very time-consuming. But hey, I'm not complaining! :P
Now here's a glimpse to mi obra, ladies and gentlemen. Please keep this out of my invitees' radar for now as I'm not giving them away until the first week of April. Hehe
