"This is such a great opportunity for many of us small business owners to band together and get
the word out about our products and services." says Delilah Hatch, owner and editor of Do-it-
yourself-invitations.com. In her own words, budget friendly wedding invitations are her
specialty. "With the economy on the down turn and weddings costing as much as they do, many
brides are looking for ways to cut costs. Making handmade invitations is just one of them,"
Delilah explains. "I wanted to host a DIY invitations contest to give these brides an outlet for
showing off their great work, but also with the focus of inspiring each other on their journey."
Do-It-Yourself-Invitations.com is an invitations and card making website that has soared in
readership since its launch in Late 2006 and is ranked among the top 1% of all websites for
traffic according to Alexa traffic rankings. Hatch believes the popularity is in part due to a
combination of the economy and DIY bridal trends. "The online community of DIY brides is
exploding right now. Whether they have financial reasons, r are creating items to fit in with their
unique style sense, more brides are turning back towards making items themselves."
The Handmade Invitations Contest runs through April 30th, 2011, giving brides plenty of time to
finish up projects.
