- Wedding: June 2013
So I am budget bride, to the MAX! I spent maaaybe $20 on our save the date postcards, through a vistaprint deal. and ~$13 on our invitations and inserts, another groupon deal, even though I had budgeted $150 dollars for everything, once I figured out how cheap and yet high quality i could have them printed, I was on cloud frugal and never going back!
Well my vistaprint invites got here earlier this week, and i love them, except one thing. The free envelopes look…… bad. Cheap. Free? Not what I wanted. So I set out on a hunt for some nice and cheap envelopes for a 6 x 9 booklet size.
Turns out those don’t exist.
After two days of going back and forth on whether I wanted a cheaper envelope, or the fancy ~~dream sparkly metallic envelopes, I decided i wanted them and tried placing an order for them on envelopemall.com (that was cheaper than anywhere else) and literally… 9 tries (between two separate days) later and my order still wouldn’t go through. SO I said: F this, and ordered 100 quartz metallic envelopes from envelopes.com for $56!! ACK!! I know they will look really nice and really dress up our vistaprint invites and set the tone for our classic, some-what-fancy and somehow still laid back wedding.
Have you had a splurge yet that just makes you cringe a little? What was it?
