I am recently engaged and will be planning an early March wedding.
Does anyone know where to get good quality wedding invitations that aren’t priced by the bulk? I’m finding it difficult to purchase 40 invitations that aren’t ridiculously expensive. Can anyone suggest any websites that might specialize in selling in small quantities?

have you thought about getting some of those diy box set of invitations? they have a wide selection and generally look pretty nice. i’ve seen them at michaels, target, and hobby lobby to name a few places.

They have a ton of different people who make invitations and will make them to your liking and your style. That’s where my fiance and I are getting ours. The seller we’re working with is:
She’s absolutely amazing!!

i ordered ours through Moira Design Studio. you can order in packs of 10. i liked them becuase they offer semi custom invitations. they have all their available designs on line, but then let us customize our wording, fonts and colors (she actually matched my red, which was more like raspberry, to my bridesmaids dresses to ensure they matched perfectly)

I agree that it is hard to find good deals on small numbers of invites.
I got 50 invites, 30 RSVP cards, 50 reception cards, and 30 accomodation cards (we are not giving accomadation cards to people who won’t need hotel information, and we aren’t sending RSVP cards to our internet saavy guests who can reply online) from wedding paper divas for $190. They are printed on thick textured paper, and while I don’t love them like I love letterpress, they are nice.
I also got 50 pocketfolds for $38, 50 invitation mats for $9, 50 belly bands for $10, and 50 2 inch squares (to use for closing our belly band) for $7…but obviously these are extra expenses that you can certainly skip.
Costco.com lets you order many of their invites in small quantities, although I didn’t find any samples I loved.

I got my invitations yesterday!
I posted pictures of mine and the shop I got them from on this thread. The store I worked with on Etsy told me that they usually only do quantities of 50 or more but we were able to get only 25 sets. Ours were $125 for 25 sets and for 50 it would have been $180. Look around on Etsy though, they have a lot of sellers willing to work within different price ranges.

My best invitation advice is to do an alchemy request on etsy. Describe what you’re looking for in terms of colors, looks, invitation parts, and quantity. That way, sellers can bid on your request intelligently. I poked around the etsy listings for weeks, trying to find something that fit our budget and style, to no avail. I put up an alchemy request and got about 40 responses with a few days, and we found our winner super easily!
I think ours are $2.00 apiece (flat rectangle invitation, postcard for RSVP, and outer envelope only). I don’t remember my seller saying anything about minimum quantities… I just remember her mentioning that you get a discount for bulk orders. Check her out: http://www.etsy.com/listing/61234009/damask-flat-wedding-invitation?ref=pr_shop
Plus, she’s ridiculously nice and absurdly easy to work with 🙂 Good luck!

I used Etsy as well! I used LittleLadyBugPress and she was awesome to work with! I saw 2 different invitations of hers that I loved but I wanted aspects of each invitation so she worked with me to create a custom invitation suite. She was so easy to communicate with and let me have a part in every step – always asking me to approve something before doing it! Here is her link and this is my invitation (the front cover) – http://www.etsy.com/shop/littleladybugpress?ga_search_query=littleladybugpress&ga_search_type=seller_usernames

I am planning to order this:
It costs $2.3 CDN per invitations. Oh well, my mom, MH, FI and I all agree that better save money here because people are going to throw away the invitations after the event. So better use the money wisely elsewhere instead of invites. That’s why I found these low cost ones, but still look great 🙂
BTW, it is from etsy.
