Invites are never going in the mail

This is why I should never DIY, or have someone help me DIY. My cousin is super crafty and offered to make invites for me. She made a couple samples, we picked one. All I had to do was print them and get the supplies to make them. Well. I got the paper purchased, got them printed and had my mom drop them off when she was there today. I didn't buy the stupid ribbon and flowers. That involves a two hour round trip to the store (which I have no time for) or ordering online and waiting on it. Ugh. Hopefully my fiance feels like going to town one day this week.

  • Try not to stress, although its hard for me to even follow that advice. Everything will work out :)

  • I'm also DIYing my invites. I'm doing a pocket layered invite.  I have everything...most of them are printed, I just need to put them together.  I did like 25 of them.... But I have so many more to go I feel like it's never going to get done.  :-( and I have no one to help me put them together.  UGH.

  • I feel the same! I have designed, printed and put together only about half of my invites...seems like it's never ending!

    We're going to haul the kids out on Friday night after work to go pick up stuff. I think we'll be okay. Maybe. We need to get the RSVPs printed too so I can start pre-addressing those dumb things.
  • I did partial DIY, and then got all the inside stuff printed, and they look great, they're ready and good to go...
    except the stamps. 

    I ordered stamps and they should have been here a week ago, but they "accidentally" got sorted into the wrong tray and ended up in California... where they have now been sitting for several days.  If I don't get the stamps this week, I'll just have to go buy more I suppose.  Our invitations are being sent in about a week and half!

  • I was going to DIY them. even bought some. then I decided against it. I guess I am lazy, lol. but I wouldn't stress. its only mid july you still have well over a month before you need to send them out! that's a long time!

    Yes, yes you can! I added a lace ribbon bellyband to my invites and they were a nightmare to work with!

    To OP, just take it one day at a time.  Ask your girlfriends to come over, have some wine, watch a movie, and get to work.  I had some help, and they were finished in no time.  This doesn't help the 2 hour drive situation, but it will work out and they will be beautiful!

    I know!! I had never used them before, and thought they would be easy. I hate trying to get one dot off the damn roll without ruining the others.

    Glue dots are the devil. I remember them from my scrapbooking days.
    My cousin sent me a text that everything is cut, so I just have to pick up the rest of the stuff today after work and haul it over. I think we'll be okay. I'm just a basket case about everything all the time, even non-wedding stuff ha
