I thought ours turned out great. I didn’t want to spend big bucks on a invite when people are going to end up throwing them out after the wedding anyways. Here is ours. Vistaprint was great because you can customize them anyway you want. I don’t like the envelopes that they came with but I don’t regret our invites at all. I edited the important information.

I didn’t think it was flimsy at all. It turned out better than I thought it would. I am having a small wedding so I only purchase 30 invites so the money wouldn’t be a huge loss if I ended up not liking it.

dojx:  here’s ours sorry for the blacked out details kinda ruins the look! I’ve attached a print screen from the website too. I think the quality is great but I would recommend buying the matching envelopes. The standard free envelopes are very business like!

You can request a free sample pack from Vistaprint that has sample invitations and envelopes and things so you can physically inspect. It was quite helpful for me.

dojx:  I’m on my phone, so not at the moment. But I did post a pic of the digital image in an earlier thread. It looks exactly like the ones we received. If you can’t find it, tell me and I’ll post it again when I have a computer.

It’s not at all flimsy. All the card stock feels heavy and rich.

I didn’t want to DIY, as I feel that can easily add up to be more than cheap invitations. I got a groupon and ended up spending less than $100.

We’re also doing online RSVPs, to save on weight and return postage. The insert card doubled as the RSVP.

Oooo – yes – do what PP poster mentioned and get the sample pack if you have time! It really helps you see which style paper you like. I always upgraded the paper. 

Also, I’ve found the retail me not coupons or just waiting for a vistaprint sale can be better than the groupons. Whenever I ordered something I would load up my cart then apply each coupon to see which got me the best savings. Such as waiting for a sale that applies to the upgrades as well as the base price – those are the best! Some coupons let you double up and some don’t. Sometimes I’d have to unload my whole cart and start over to do this but it’s soooo worth it! Saves tons!!! All your work is saved in your portfolio.

I’d reccommend it to anyone and everyone. I mean, unless your thing is envelopes. I upgraded the envelopes and I still wasn’t too impressed. But you have to draw the line somewhere. lol

Here’s my real life pictures:

dojx:  I think mine were the designer range ha ha! The matching envelopes looked lovely but I was too stingy! I did get the envelope stickers though with our names and wedding date to match the invite. They were soooooo cheap and looked really cute!

dojx:  We’re doing that to. We got 10 regular RSVP cards for those people. I can only count 3 that actually need them, so some computer savvy people may be getting them, cause that’s how the numbers worked out. The smallest quantity you can buy from Vista print is 10.

I picked whichever one was free. If I could have gotten away with invitation emails I would have! (We did for save the dates) there are so many parts of our wedding that I would rather have spent that money. It just gets thrown out. 

Invitations were so far down my list of priorities it’s not even funny.
