What type of website are you looking for? Somewhere to print? I printed mine on Vista Print and am very happy with them (and the price – wait for their big sales like I did at 50% off).  I have also heard great things about CatPrint if you have your own file you want printed.  And if you are looking for pockets, belly bands etc I have read good things about cardsandpockets.com

Saddiebug:  I designed mine myself on Word and printed at home.  I bought the linen cardstock from Office Depot but everything else came from cardsandpockets.com – They are awesome.  I got mattes for the invites already cut to size, silver pocketfolds and all my envelopes.  I don’t have pictures yet since I just finished them over the weekend but I will upload one soon.

I bought a Wilton kit from Joann’s fabrics.  I waited until they went on sale, and had a coupon, and spent about 50 dollars for 100 invitations.  They look gorgeous too and fit our wedding colors perfectly

I 2nd PP I got 2 Wilton kits at Joann’s. Maybe $30 for 50 invites. They were gorgeous and I loved them. And don’t forget they are going to end up in everyone’s garbage can 😉

I made my invites.

I designed them in MS Publisher and printed via VistaPrint.

Then I used cardstock and punches from Michael’s to do backing on the cards and make my bellybands.

Got my envleopes from LCI Paper.

A good paper cutter was essenital. I got this one (Swingline ClassicCut) from Amazon, and I also loved my tape gun for sealing envelopes and putting things together (Scotch Tape Glider).

Here’s a pic of mine kind of put together..

I also stamped and embossed my invites with a lavender stamp…I used ink the same purple at my card stock and clear embossing powder.

I don’t seem to have a photo on my computer of that part though…but this was the stamp I used.

i bought a full kit from michaels or somewhere like that.  they were on the clearance rack for $10 or $15 for 25 of them.  they came with the jackets, envelopes, rsvp and everything.  i just added a bit of coloured ribbon and a monogrammed sticker to seal them.  they were less than $1/each overall.
