Look through the DIY section on this site. Look at the top of your screen and you will see a link that says DIY. When you are inside that link, there are different categories that you can look for to do if you want to do DIY.

A good site for inexpensive, partial DIY and non-DIY invitations is: http://www.yourinvitationplace.com/Default.aspx?WebName=grannysbridalboutique

@FutureMrs.C: Remember, count HOUSES, not guests when ordering invitations 🙂

Also, you could totally make your own… or recruit some help here on WB. There are tons of helpful people on here.

Have you found a style that you really like? I’m sure we could replicate it.

Also, check etsy.com – The mecca of DIY for people not into doing it themselves 😉

I am making my own using paperandmore.com! 150 guests, 65 invitations = $100 in supplies and $30 in postage. And? They are going to be amazing!

Also, don’t forget that the more you buy at a lot of sites (vistaprints, overnightprints, zazzle, etc) the less it costs. 

Another option is to have someone make up a basic template in a program and then take it someplace that makes copies.  It sometimes is cheaper to buy the paper and make copies or have somewhere like Staples print it from a pdf file. 

I think at Staples and places like that, you can choose your paper type and color and it MIGHT be cheaper.  I’m not certain because I’m getting mine from Zazzle. 

I just did a quick estimate using the “create your own option” and 300 5″x7″ invites are $225.  Not sure what your budget is, but that at least gives you an idea of one place.  It comes out to .75 (75 cents) for each invite and they come with their own envelopes.
