Since you all seemed to like our DIY STDs so much, I thought it was time to share the DIY invitations we did. Although these were, DIY, they were not cheap to make I used a fabulous template from http://www.a-very-potter-wedding.com/ . This was the best template I was able to find. You'll need Adobe Photoshop or Gimp to edit this file though. It does take some know how, so you'll need to learn from YouTube videos or enlist the help of a savvy friend. Once I had the invite edited and customised to my liking I had to get them printed which was one of the more difficult parts of the process. It was really difficult to explain (even with pictures) what I was looking for and how the invitations were meant to go together to the different print shops I went to. I was turned down by two print shops before I found one that was willing to do some trial and error to figure it out. I had the print shop print and cut the invitations and to save money I folded and assembled them myself. There is also a matching RSVP card as well. In the end it ended up costing me around $250. I found some nice antique colored envelopes and used our Hogwarts wax seal again. I hope you enjoy!
