@hiroshymatetrastar:  Oh man…this is rough…I am a whore for all things paper and I honest to god LOVE squares…I know it’s expensive, and that a sensible, frugal person would just change the size to a more economical one to mail….but I have NEVER advertised as either of those things..if it were me, I would stick with the square, pay the $$ and relish the fact that I sent, what I wanted and my guests, appreicated it.

An invitation is the FIRST impression a host/hostess gets to make in connection with their event, I loathe to admit it, but when I open some cheap peice of crap invitation, my enthusiasm for the wedding drops dramatically.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  I did 5×7 just for this reason.  If you have it in your budget, and you really love the invites, stick with the squares.

I would change them to be cheaper to mail. In the end, the invitation is a piece of paper. People are going to throw it away. With the money issues you’re having right now, it doesn’t make sense to spend a big chunk of change on paper, but that’s just my opinion.

I’m the opposite of Nona99, I cannot recall a single wedding invitation I’ve received in my whole life, except the most recent one which came while we have been planning our wedding.  If I was excited for a couple who was getting married, getting a 5×7 over a square invite wouldn’t change my enthusiam whatsoever.  I think after going through all this planning I would notice if the invite wasn’t good quality (paper quality, bad printing), but I wouldn’t care.  So really if you have the budget and really love the square, do them, if not, don’t stress and go with the 5 x 7’s.  It all up to what’s important to you two.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  It sounded like on the thread you posted on not being able to take a honeymoon the other day that you are looking for some places to cut back. This might be one of them. If I were in your shoes I would do the smaller one.
