Lauren continues, in her own words: “In my instance, I didn’t even know that custom invitations were possible – nonetheless that they would be about the same cost as what “customizable” invitations were. The difference? Custom invitations are designed for your wedding and your wedding only – unique and one-of-a-kind. Unfortunately, by the time I found out about the amazingness of custom invitations, I didn’t have enough time to get them designed and printed – but I don’t want you to make the same mistake I did!” [Read more: Wedding Invitations: Everything You Need to Know!]
