  • Friends wedding invites

    I went to my pals last night for dinner and to show them the designs ive made for their wedding invites.
    Ribbon was used and a tartan theme was relevant so I did a few weaving designs and they really liked them!
    Kept the price down as alot of money was going to other things.
    But at the end of it we got a proper colour scheme, a more defined idea of a final design for wedding/evening invites and...most importantly...I get a guillotine out of it!!!

    Yay!! My tip would be to start them early and keep going at them when you have any spare chance - I left my friends til the last minute and sitting up at 3 in the morning putting seed beads onto thread wasn't my idea of fun!!

      Yep, I subtley said the earlier we start I wont have to rush and the cost will be spread out for them.They are getting married in over a year so should get them done in time.

      I think its July 08 they are getting married, when should the cards go out?

        I can't remember off hand but if you look at confetti.co.uk I think they have a link - if not some other wedding sites do. If you can't find it on confetti then I will have a look through my bookmarks for you.

          Hey there,

          I made my own invites and only just got them finished in time to send for my wedding last August .

          Am a newbie, but we sent them mid may for a mid August wedding. It's typically I think about 2.5 months before the date you are meant to send them.

                  Can you believe Ihad to google how to weave!!

                  I started by putting alternate coloured ribbon down each side and I couldnt work out why it didnt look right, so googled weaving and realised I had to put the same colour down each side!!

                  I dont feel too bad about it as Im 31 and I havnt weaved for quite some time.

                    6 weeks at the very latest, and peeps have started sending out "save the date" magnets a lot earlier too just to let people know so they dont book holidays etc at the same time

                    They sounds lovely and you've got plenty of time too.

                      6-8 weeks before is when we sent them. We didn't bother with Save the Date magnets or cards or other things as that never occurred to us. Besides, unless you are invited Great Aunt Bessie who lives in South Africa and haven't spoken to in 10 years nearly all guests hear by word of mouth or blatantly asking outright what the date is anyway, so to me it seems an unneccessary expense.

                      I think you'll have plenty of time to get the invites made if you are already getting close to the final design. I made my own invites and it took me about 2 months (just doing a little bit in the evenings, and not every day either).

                          I've done a similar thing. My nephew is getting married on 1 September and he asked if I would make the wedding favours and the centre pieces. No problem I said (this was in May). Got quite busy with the site so kept putting back his candles. Well I really need to get my fingers out only a month to go - 9 centre piece candles and 60 personalised favours to make AAARRRGGGHHHH.

                          Think I will be bored soon too.

                          Cheers.

                              If it helps, I have a piece of paper and mark a 'I' on it - when I get to 4 'I' then a diagonal across to make it a 5. Bit like counting down the days to get out of jail. heheheh

                              And then I'm chuffed when I've done 5!!
