I was going to order from formal-invitations.com until I fell in love with the pocketfolds over at cardsandpockets.com. I bought the outsides and then made all the inserts, invitations, and belly bands for them. It cost me about $150 total for 100 invites.

Lots of people have also said that Michael’s has nice invites and with 40% off coupons you can get them cheap.

I agree! When my Fiance told me that he spent $10/invite for his Bar Mitzvah, I thought that was just ridiculous. We explored a LOT of options, including DIY, and ended up getting ours custom made by an Etsy seller. We recently got all the invites and they look GORGEOUS. They only cost $300 but they look like we spent twice as much. 

The shop we used was: http://www.etsy.com/shop/lvandy27. I highly recommend it. Or if you are looking for a different style, just spend some time browsing – there are many many sellers who do invites.

I used Womancraft, inspired by one of the Bees (I forget who!).  For about 4.25/invite, I got a trifold with several inserts, but there were several less expensive options available. The paper is made from shredded office paper, so its green as well. It’s also quite beautiful.

What really sets them apart, however, is their social mission rather than price. They are a nonprofit that helps women get back on their feet and provides them with work experience. Anytime I can spend my money and give back at the same time, I feel so much better about spending it!

I totally understand, our invites were close to $3K and I was like “Seriously??!” That is the one aspect I promised myself I would skimp on because everyone just throws it away, but I couldn’t help myself in the end and HAD to have an envelope liner, map, direction card, wallpaper back, etc etc.
