Our budget for all paper/stationary is also $600 🙂

I went with an Etsy designer http://www.etsy.com/shop/gwenmariedesigns?section_id=6523751

She’s really great to work with. She answers all my e-mails and question promptly and I’ve never waited more than a day for her to get back to me.  Usually, I hear from her within the hour.   Her prices are VERY reasonable.

I love her unique invitations that can include pictures on them.  We chose a 3-fold invitation and it’s almost ready!

Our invite budget is closer to $200, but we only need 50-60 invites and we’re using Vistaprint.

We spent about $220 on 250 invitations, addressed envelopes, Response cards

I refused to spend a lot on paper. It wasn’t important to us. We got our invites off of 123print.com.

They’re not the prettiest of most extravagant, but the paper is great quality and you can add little things to touch it up.

Everyone loved them!

I know this is an unpopular choice, but we sent paperless invitations to everyone with an email address, and for the few holdouts with no email, we sent simple cards. The whole thing cost us less than $5. 

Paper invitations are lovely, but we just *could not* justify that kind of expense.

We used Olive Press Paper for our STD.  www.facebook.com/olivepresspaper

She was amazing – best customer service and turned everything around so quickly.  Cute selection of invites too.  They even customzied color and some font selections. Awesome experience and ppl have raved over our photo STD!

We are planning to spend less than $400. I am going to DIY with purchased template sets from Etsy sellers. This knocked about $400+ off of our wedding budget so it made sense…it paid for our harpist!

Ours ending up costing $750 not including postage.

I should invest in fancy paper!

I am making my own.  Order some of the basic elements from Paper Presentations and am drawing (via computer) my image-finally a talent that is paying off.  I wanted a specific graphic so if you don’t need that you could easily use basic elements and word.  I have definitely getting fonts from fontspace.com (just download, click on the download and install-then it goes into word).   Also utilizing stamps with embossing powder and embossing gun to give it something special.  Good luck!

We live literally on the other side of the world from our families and are going with these custom passports that I thought would be appropriate.  I don’t think they break the bank at all, around $3-$4 each with all the bits & bobs.
