Hello Bees!! I need HELP. I am freaking out about having finally gotten engaged and my parents are pushing the Engagement party on me – they want to have it by the end of the summer. Which is fine. But WHAT ABOUT THE INVITATIONS?!?! My parents aren’t understanding that I’d like to stay true to a theme; light, earthy, and simple. I’m trying to find the most affordable basic invitations & dress them up myself. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’ve checked paperpresentation.com, but I don’t really want to spend $200 on paper alone….is that crazy? the total for the invitations from that site (unprinted upon) would be ~$330.00 is that reasonable? I have no idea what I’ve gotten myself into.

Weddingchicks.com has several “free printables” that you customize with your information then download for free. I then took that and went over to Vistaprint. Uploaded the design to a flat postcard with a coupon (sign up for email, they send tons of offers) and ordered it for very little money.

I would check Etsy. They have lots of printables that the shop will customize with your info (name, date, etc & colors). My SIL has bought invites off there for $10 and then has taken them to Kinkos to print.
For printing I would look at VistaPrint.com & google coupon codes 🙂
Also – Shutterfly has lots of invite options too & they almost always have coupon codes!
