I’ve never purchased from any of these shops… but I was browsing and came across some really cute stuff.
(Etsy.com is a great site where artists can sell their goods online)

i was just going to post about etsy!!
question: if i had one of the sellers make my invitations do you think it would be cheaper than if i DIYed them? because i know it would be a heck of a lot easier!! and it seems as if the quality is good.
on the other hand, is it a better value than purchasing paper and having it printed at kinkos?
pricing looks like $450ish for 100 invites. Here are my favorites:
Has anyone ever purchased invites from etsy before?

If you’re buying from Etsy look into the seller’s sales records/recommentations or negative feedback – that will give you a reference for how they do business.
Also feel free to email the seller and ask for specific references – for something like invitations or another "can’t go back" kind of purchase, it would be best to hear about the quality and timeliness from another purchaser.
Etsy is amazing and any purchase I’ve made has been a smooth and great transaction and I’ve always been impressed with the product.

I am an Etsy seller myself (http://www.waisze.etsy.com) and Etsy is a wonderful place especially for DIY wedding stuff. There’s a whole section of wedding items. There’s a wide range of prices so you should definitely check it out. Even though Etsy is comprised of mostly small at home businesses, many are professionals at what they do. (Hey have to start somewhere!) If you are unsure about the seller, just check the feedback to gain some reassurance!

I actually bought all my jewelry and bridesmaid jewelry from etsy. If you just ask anyone would customize for you. colors, sizes etc. Here were there postings for the items I purchased. All the sellers I dealt with were really friendly and offered great service. bridesmaid necklaces and "something blue" anklet (These looked a lot more prettier in person too) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6956338 http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7270858

teacherbride – I am getting my invites cutom made from the second etsy seller heatherjeany and she has been so nice so far, and her feedback is awesome, she is very reasonable as far as pricing goes as well. I was very conflicted with the decision on my invites since they are my biggest obsession and I knew from the start I would not be diy’ng them, but I am so happy I decided to go with her, I can’t wait to start the design process. I love etsy!!!

I bought my veil on etsy. I had a great experience with the vendor. Heidi is so nice and the veil came fast and it’s beautiful! Mine was custom made and still amazingly afordable, I’d definitely check her out. I was really scared of the whole thing, but it was a great experience. Hooray for Etsy!

Heatherjeany did my invitations from etsy. Everyone really loved them – I received a ton of compliments on how "fancy dancy" they were.

Heatherjeany is AMAZING. She did my invitations and thank you notes and I can’t say enough about her. She’s a FANTASTIC deal for custom invites. We also bought the boy’s ties off Etsy (One of the bees blogged about the seller the other day).
Etsy is a gem. Love it.
