I HATE DIY Invitations

If they don't kill me this weekend I will be surprised. 4 hours last night, going on 7 hours today... and that was just printing/figuring things out. UGH.

    Exactly why I just bought something off a website. I have ZERO patience for DIY projects, so I decided not to even attempt it :P

    Good luck!

    I bought them like MB and then just had to assemble them. That was ENOUGH for me! Good luck! You can do it! =)

    Good luck!!  That is something I am way too afraid to try.  It will all be worth it when you finish.

    you can do it!!

    It sucks, but it's sucha a HUGE weight lifted when you're done.

    Trust me, I am about 0% crafty and we pulled it off. =)

    Good luck!

    (p.s. Wine helps.)

    It does take a ridiculously long time. Especially if you're a perfectionist. Just do a little bit at a time if you can. i.e. cutting one day, glueing another, maybe 20 at a time. But it'll be worth it in the end!

    and pp is right... wine!

    Ditto to what Jen said.  I thought I was going to go crazy, but in the end you'll be glad that you did it.

    We DIYed our invites, and it took us just as much time .. maybe even longer.. But the end product made us both happy + we saved so much $ which made us even happier.

    Good luck & lots of snacks & wine will do the trick :)

    Hang in there... mine took/are taking WAAAY longer than I expected, but I'm soooo happy with the results.  It'll be worth it in the end!  My last ones go in the mail tomorrow morning, so I'm right with you!
