I recently had the opportunity to help my sister with her wedding. She (like many of you) decided to make her own wedding invitations. After 3 weeks of running around, many late nights assembling invitations, and tying ribbons she figured out that making her own invitations does not save you money, and causes a lot of undue stress. The invitations we made were beautiful, but not nearly as nice as what pro's can do. Save your self time and money and go with someone who knows what they are doing.
