I have been busily working on details for my upcoming wedding. I still have 160ish days, but doing things early is essential to my sanity. Right now I am figuring out what things I want to do myself and what I am leaving up to the professionals. This weekend we attempted to tackle wedding invitations.
Wedding invitations are EXPENSIVE. I thought $400 would be enough for all the stationary (save the dates, invitations, thank you cards). Well that was so wrong. Invitations have at least 4-5 pieces so the cost added up quickly. After much research, I decided that I would buy a kit from Michael’s and print them myself. I bought 3 kits of these:
Simple with a touch of shimmer. Perfect right? So Sunday we got to work. We figured out the template, got through the hurdle of formatting, and had our printer in working order. And then…I don’t know what happened. Several trials and many profanities later this is all I got:
Ugh!!!!!! Was this whole thing a waste of time? What was I going to do?
Thankfully, I later found out that I could bring them to a printing shop and get them to print them. Crisis averted (I hope 🙏🏾).
Ever had a DIY project go terribly bad?
