My biggest wedding dillema right now is our invites. We’re coming home in December/January and we have to distribute the invitations by that time so the invites should be ready in December. I am still contemplating on whether we’ll be doing DIY or ask a supplier to execute the design for us. I started asking for quotations from various suppliers and was really surprised on how expensive these invitations could get! P350 for a single invite – REALLY? L seems to be ok with spending that much with an invite but NOT ME!

Milestones by Adworks sent me a quotation and darn was it expensive. I asked them to send me samples and turns out the invites are too expensive for something I don’t even like. Their invites are not tacky at all, they are actually quite nice but they’re just too formal for my taste. And for something I could do myslef, it’s way expensive – I couldn’t accept it haha!

P205 each EXCLUDING table number, menu card and napkin holders! WTH??

This is easily DIYable and it costs P165 per set!

So now, I’m 80% set on doing DIY. I’ve checked ebay for 2nd hand printers and I found some that costs less than $100 but I didn’t check the printer specs (no. of dpi, paper gsm it can handle, etc) and ink cost. I have yet to scour cost for paper then I can do the calculation.

I’ve changed my mind yet again (surprise) and found a new inspiration for our invites. This time it’s FINAL!! Invitation inspiration will be blogged on my next post!!! šŸ™‚
