DIY invitations are TOO expensive!

So many brides actually think do-it-yourself invitations (DIY) will save money. Designing your very own wedding stationery can be stressful and expensive! The low-priced invitation kits at the hobby shop only look easy. The instructions neglect to tell you that a professional grade printer  is needed to produce an invite that does not smear and smudge all over your hands. Avoid the mess and expense of home-made invitations! Instead, we strongly suggest you relax and work with a local stationery professional who can guide you to the best values and guarantee no embarrassing errors and minimal stress.

A professional stationer actually saves you money because she has access to numerous vendors for every budget, she knows what products only look expensive and is able to direct you accordingly. Her expertise in etiquette, trends and value can help you avoid embarrassing and often costly errors. If you give her a budget, she can show you which particular invitations will not deplete your bank account. There are so many beautiful options to choose from, and many are a bargain!  Most bridal salons offer premier invitation service specifically designed for their brides, so remember to ask for their help. It is always to your benefit to keep your purchases local and under one roof!

Brides who are trained printers &/or artists have the skill sets to make their own invitations. However, even experienced crafters realize that such projects require a commitment of time, energy & money. Beginners frequently make many costly mistakes. Why would you bother making invitations for the most important day of your life if you really don’t save significant money?

The invitation is the actual preview of your special day; it sets the mood of what is to come. Your guests will make an initial impression from the quality of your invitation; some guests will even determine the size of their gift.  Do you really want to send a wedding invitation that looks like it was made by an amateur? Do you want your first impression to be a disappointment?
