Hi ladies, it’s me again!
Well I am currently looking at Engagement Party Invitations. (Engagement parties are popular over in Australia). And since we are going to elope in the next couple of years we are going all out with invites, venue, outfits and flowers etc. This will be our only time to have a celebration with all of our family and friends together 🙂
So I have been looking on Etsy at invites and OMG some of them are just gorgeous. Has anyone had experience buying/creating invites online? We are able to do samples before we buy in bulk which is great!
Here is an example of my favourite so far. Keep in mind this is shown as a wedding invitation, yet the lady said she can easily make it to suit for our engagement.
Give me your advice/opinions/other invites similar.
Thanks and enjoy!!

Very pretty! We ordered our invitations from the US (not Etsy though) and my main piece of advice would be to leave plenty of time for the entire process. The design and proofing process, plus shipping, took much longer than what was promised by the designer. Also, check their shipping policy too – we were charged $400 in shipping and then she over-declared the value, so we were hit with GST as well. A bit of a shambles and I’m still cross about it – but our invites were beautiful in the end.

peonyinparis: oh wow, that sounds awful. I would be annoyed aswell!
Are you from australia, do you mind sending me a link of your designer.I’m wanting to see a wide range of examples.

MatildaFae: Yeah it was really infuriating. The designer was really awful, to be honest.
The company is called Momental Designs.

peonyinparis: +1000000 I ordered my wedding invitations off etsy. They are GORG, but it came with a headache. Etsy sellers are usually very overwhelmed with order and do not give themselves enough time to complete them all. I was back and forth with my seller two weeks after my invitations were set to ship. Which set me back about two weeks on getting my invites out. Very frustrating.

Hmm, maybe I will keep searching then.
I would hate to book a venue and the invites come out too late to give people notice. Thanks for your advice, it’s definitely made me rethink the process!
