DIY Wedding Invites: The Finale

Just to update my avid followers (yehess naman, like I have a lot hehe), I'm finally done with all the invites! Woohoo! I have already sent some away while the others are still to be sent within the week. Hopefully we're done giving them out next week, at the latest. Based on the feedback I got from a couple of lovely followers on the previous DIY post, this was a pretty amazing idea and I pretty much was able to execute it well. Thanks to them, I kinda feel encouraged now that these invites will also be appreciated by my guests. Though I don't deny the possibility that some of them might bash my hand writing or my face on the picture haha! Me can't please everyone. No one can. And that's fine.




Anyway, I'm giving you guys a rundown of the total damage of this DIY invites. If you haven't read it yet, let me reiterate. I'm frugal. No, I'm Venus. But FRUGAL is my middle name. haha! And that's one of the major reasons I'm DIY-ing a lot of stuff for my wedding :)

834.25


wedding invitation ideas, DIY wedding invitations

So that's a total damage of 834.25 for 40 pieces of invites. Something that's worth taking note of, by the way, is the amount of materials left with me after finishing all these. The ribbon in the picture, the puncher, and the pens (yey!). So technically, I spent a total of even less than 834.25. Yeah baby! Like a boss I did. *wink*
