Wedding Wednesday – Print at Home Invitations

It’s been a week since our last Wedding Wednesday already? This week is flying by and it makes me a little sad, as this is my last week on full time maternity leave. Next week I start back at work for 6 weeks part-time. Check back and I’ll be sharing my maternity leave experience.

Hopefully you know the drill, each Wednesday, I link up with Macy from To Travel and Beyond and Meg from Borrowed Heaven for Wedding Wednesday to share small details from our big day each Wednesday.

Jump over there 😛

This week I’ll be sharing our invitations! My hubby thought it would be a good idea to create and print our own!IMG_1665

This was a lot more work than I was expecting. Ben designed our invitation, RSVP, and accommodations card. He did an amazing job. I love, love, love them. It even inspired us to have a two seater bike at the wedding.


This took awhile to get printed because we printed at home. It took awhile to print the first side and then second side (correctly). We invited over 200 people, so I spent a lot of time near the printer. So the big question: Would I print them again? Hmm…


I don’t think I’d do it again. Between the cost of paper, ink, and the time it took to get these done, I’d suggest getting yours ordered. This would save stress and the hassle. Have you printed your own invitations? Did you have the same experience?

    We thought about printing ours, but then decided to still design them and send the images to Cards and Pockets for them to print. It was a little more expensive, but saved us so much time. A bicycle built for two is such a sweet idea!

      You and Dave are super skilled when it comes to graphic design! It all worked out, but I’ll never volunteer to print 200 double sided invitations at home again 😛

      Thanks for the link up opportunity!!

    I’m not that creative, so I don’t think I could design my own and print them. We ended up with simple and affordable invitations. I think it was less stress to order them, like you said.

    There are some things that are definitely way too much of a stress to DIY. Then you realize after all the cost (ink, paper, etc) it’s actually cheaper to just have them made lol. But for all of that hard work ya’ll put out, the invites do look gorgeous!

    I love these invites! The bicycle is so cute! I made my own invitations, too, and it saved me so much money. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday! See you tomorrow night for another party!
