SurelyAsTheSunWillRise:   We used Wedding Paper Divas.  They will send you free samples so you can see what the various paper types look and feel like.   Their Pearl Shimmer was pretty on our invitations but we used the regular paper for the RSVP cards since ink smeared on the Pearl Shimmer sample.

100lb is a decent weight, they’ll be fine (:

We purchased our paper from and it was fairly reasonably. We purchased a template for really cheap on etsy, and then had them printed at staples for 12 cents a page which totalled only $12 at staples.

I purchased my paper from and just printed at home.  My home printer has a rear loading tray and doesn’t have any issues printing on heavy cardstock, otherwise I’ve heard staples and costco both have pretty affordable printing.

  • Wedding: September 2014 has plenty of options on paper, you can request free samples, and their prices are fairly reasonable. They even send you a hard copy proof before you print all your invites to make sure that everything is correct.  I just ordered mine earlier this week so I will keep you updated on how it turns out.
