I am a moron when it comes to invitations and all things paper.. I am jealous of ladies that love and know paper! Anyhow, I have been searching and searching Etsy for inspiration and have just not been feeling anything. However, I think I might love these but was looking for some other opinions. I’m slightly concerned that this seller has never sold anything, but I’m trying to not let that bother me : )
Obviously, invitiations is such a personal decision, so I understand if they are just not your style. But I would appreciate any and all input! Also, if we decide to go with these, any ideas on how to package them? Thanks, ladies!

I think thats a great idea! I am making my own invitations, so I think $25 is a good price for all the font and written work. I would definetly pay that price to have someone else do the work lol its a pain in the butt. I would print them, and maybe stick them to slightly larger cardstock that is your wedding colors, stack them on top of eachother with a belly band (strip of cardstock in another wedding color) and stick the bellyband together with your monogram or something.

I really like it! Very classy, but also kind of modern 🙂

very pretty! it’s a little odd that she doesn’t give you a proof, but $25 is a great deal. i would definitely spend a little more to get the proof.

Oh, I looked on her page and I see two reviews for the invites. So it looks like she has sold these and the buyers were happy with them.

Oooh I love those! So pretty! And it’s always worthwhile to give newbies a chance, they’ll bend over backwards to make you happy! I used a relatively new Etsy shop for my thank you cards, and she shipped them without a tracking number. Guess who’s thank you cards got eaten by the mail system? It sucks, but she’s been wonderful and offered me a full refund. I asked her to reprint them instead and send them with a tracking number this time. I’m more than willing to give her a second chance, it’s just sort of lesson learned for her I think. Everyone deserves a shot!

I think they are LOVELY! But i definitely would look at maybe having them printed on heavier card stock than the 110lb. Look for 14 or 16pt card stock. It’ll make the designs that much cleaner and crisper. 🙂

love these! I second the idea of making sure they are printed on a heavy stock, I would probably even mount them on another piece of paper as well (maybe on a black, so you have a thin black border surrounding it). I would’t be concerned about trying a new seller. Ask her to send a proof before you purchase, but even if you don’t like them, you are only out $25, it is not a huge risk.

Yup. These are classic, simple and you can pa-zaz them with other things (like a belly band, or envelope liners) if you wanted.
And when I looked, she had 10 reviews, so she must have just started out when you looked 🙂
