When do you need it by? I designed my invites and my friends (printed at Vista Print), and I’d be willing to take a shot at something like this, but unfortunately I’m super busy for the next week and a half so I wouldn’t even be able to take a shot at it until later :S

Feel free to PM me if you’d like!

I found Vistaprint to have relatively poor quality for the price. I don’t know what budget you’re trying to stick to, but this is who we used:

I was 100% happy with her. You can customize what components you want which will lower the price per invitation.

Also check, they have 50% off deals al the time, like $50 for $100 and increments go up to maybe $500 for $1000…they just had a deal with them a week or two ago!

Etsy, and if you buy a printable PDF one, they’re even cheaper.

Before we decided to DIY our invites, your second option was our first choice, haha. They are certainly gorgeous, but have you checked into trying to create something like this yourself in order to save money? If not, weddpaperdivas is ALWAYS having sales. I get coupons on what feels like the daily.

Gwendolyn88:  Aw I really like the second one! Very garden party-ish….but shop around till you find the one you love and is the right price…there’s tons of online wedding invitation sites…I’m sure you’ll find the one

Gwendolyn88:  Definitely check out etsy for a similar template (there are tonnes in that style!), they can customise it for you and send it to you so you can get it printed yourself. Should work out much cheaper!
