Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!
This week, let’s talk weddings. Weddings are expensive. This week I’ll share a few tips to cut down the costs, but still make your special day fabulous!
Today, let’s talk invitations. With professional-type printing and any type of paper we could imagine at our fingertips, it’s easier than ever to make your own invitations. There’s so many cute ideas out there, the hard part is deciding on just one! I settled on a pocket design for ours thinking it would be easier for the guests to keep the information in one place. We used Vistaprint for designing and printing our invitations. They have a great selection of designs and the price is very reasonable. I highly recommend them! Other than printing the actual invitation, the rest was done DIY style. Shout out to my bestie for helping me make the final product. What fun we had that afternoon!

That’s all for today. See you all in my next post.

I like this idea a lot. I am trying to design my own wedding invitations now. We are looking at Vista print for the invitation too. So you printed the directions and map on your own paper and then made the pocket?
Hi, Krista! Yes, we printed the directions and map on our own paper and then made the pocket. I followed the directions at the link below. The instructions are very detailed and were quite helpful. I adjusted some of the measurements, but for the most part, I followed this pretty closely. Thanks for your question and let me know if I can offer any further assistance!
Thanks! I will hopefully be able to do a “mockup” on one and see if it will work. My biggest concern is our invitations being too large (they are 6×9″).
Making a “mockup” is a great idea. Then, take it to the post office and see how much it will cost to mail. Let me know how it turns out!
