Hi All! Does anyone know of (preferably have experience with) a place to get eco-friendly invitations that aren’t super expensive? I’ve found a few places online that are in the $3-$4 a piece range and that’s just not in my budget. Any thoughts?

Ive never seen them for less that that. Paper-Source sells an eco friendly paper, you could always DIY

Yeah eco-friendly can be expensive unfortunately.
Either DIY or try to contact sellers on etsy to see what you can work with.
Kraft invites are eco-friendly… maybe look into those as well, you can find pretty ones for cheap!

Thanks! I’ll check out all those places. I don’t think I’ve seen some of them yet. 🙂
Let me clarify a little bit. I mean recycled ot tree free invites.

I made my own for about $1 apiece and that included all the extra necesities, like envelopes and place cards and basically all my paper products b/c i had leftover paper

@ejs4y8 Where did you get all the materials to make them?

We got ours from pasaiipaperie on etsy – she didn’t advertise recycled content, but they are partially. There’s also a local woman that was at the Tapestry House bridal show that had amazing invitations (I would have gotten them from her if I knew she existed). Also, an etsy seller from Denver Lauren Lowe who’s eco friendly, but her stuff didn’t fit us as well. Where did you end up deciding to have your wedding?

I found my bridal show list – I would guess the woman I liked was Amanda Gentile of Paper and Print Invitations ([email protected]) but I can’t find a website. Local= eco-friendly!

Thanks rachelss! I’ll check into those. If that’s not her, I’ll just call the Tapestry House and ask them. We ended up picking the Tapestry House, but we’re doing the ceremony at the Flower’s House. I wanted to get married at the Flower’s house and my Boyfriend or Best Friend didn’t care as much but could tell I wasn’t satisfied with the early end time. In the end we got a deal on both places (a little off from each) so the Flower’s House will end up being “free” because we get a discount for not having the ceremony at the Tapestry House. I finally feel settled about it which feels good!

i bought mine online from invitations by dawn and they were recycled seal and send invites…i don’t know what type of color/design scheme you have in mind but i really like my invites and they were super cheap < $1.50 each.
I believe you can also search the website for only recycled invites….
BTW-make sure you join the list serve if you’re interested because they have tons of specials (i got mine for %15 off)

Can I just throw something out there for all of you that intend on keeping your invites as keepsakes? Go with the tree-free paper, NOT recycled.
Recycled paper after 17 years that I go through at work every day is falling apart and very, very dark. It is NOT a good choice if you’re sentimental! Good luck!
