When you decide to get married at your home, your to-do list contains many things that a couple getting married at a venue wouldn’t normally have to think about. You have to build a lot from scratch, and it certainly eats up a significant chunk of your time available to take on other tasks. I haven’t taken on too many labour intensive DIYs for this reason (I still have one big one I will share in the next couple of months).
With our invitations, they weren’t extremely time consuming per se, but a DIY that I definitely prioritized. I had so much fun creating them and seeing how they came together. And, while waiting out the winter, I definitely had the time to take it on.
I was actually kind of surprised how the math per invitation worked out on this one, because I really felt like this was a low-cost project because it was done over many months. Wedding planning at its finest—you don’t realize how much something is costing you until you add it all together!
