Literanista:  Soooo, what is the “wow-factor” that you are going for? Can you tell us anything about your wedding/budget/colors/”theme”/etc.? Maybe we could help you!

Literanista:  The link didn’t work. I’ll see if I can look around. So your colors are dark blue and lilac and your wedding has a vintage feel to it? Is that right?

Bascially, your invitation is the first impression your guests will have of your wedding. Therefore, I think invitations can be very informative and important! They let guests know what to expect. I generally even know how to dress from the invitation (not because it specifies, but because the invitation gives you an idea about the wedding!)

Literanista:  Also, do you have any inspiration photos? BM dresses, centerpieces, venue, etc?

i’d recommend magnet street.  you can adjust the colors to your colors and the invitations are top notch.

Did you look at papersource? They have nice stuff that you can pick out in person so you can feel the paper and get a good idea of what things will look like before you order.

If you have somewhere to print them, you could order fancy paper and pocketfolds from cardsandpockets (or similar) and design them yourself.

Literanista:  I got my invites at: annsbridalbargains.com. They were the cheapest pricewise, not looks wise I found. Also they often have promotions for an addiditional percentage off. I don’t remember the exact amount I paid, but I got 215 invites for around $200. They were very fast and looked great! 

 

Note: I did get the “seal and send” invite, which is not what I would have loved, but budget wise they are perfect! I didn’t want to spend $5 per invite that I saw many other places.

Literanista:  What is your budget? We’re getting ours from Minted, they are a little more expensive as i’m going for some of the fancier options of thick stock and lined envelopes etc but they have some designs for like $2-3 per invite, is that stretching it? I’ve seen budgets for invites range from $20 for 100 to $1000 for 50 so I don’t want to assume what you consider expensive/cheap! lol

You can try Vistaprint- they have hundreds of designs you can filter by color and they’re pretty inexpensive. They always have sales and vouchers on Groupon and Living Social. The linen finish upgrade is really nice (you can request paper samples, too). 

Also, have you considered asking your designer friends to help you with the invites?

Literanista:  Maybe try invitationsbydawn.com I have no idea if you’ll like that but I had a great experience with them, much more affordable than some other invitations can be (especially etsy) and very nice.
