Did you look at Wedding Paper Divas?

Also, as a local invite designer – I would suggest going to a local bridal show and seeing if you can find some new talent there. New designers can’t afford to charge much since they need to get a portfolio started and get their name out there.

I did three free weddings, two weddings at cost and two very low profit weddings before I could charge even close to what Wedding Paper Divas does. Plus if you go with a local designer you get to have a say on everything! Its completely custom! πŸ™‚ You just show them a bunch of designs you like and they throw it all together for you exactly in the way you want it. (eg. perfect color match, exact words you like, change any design to fit your style better, adding details, etc).

PS Etsy has some cute ones but you have to REALLY comb through them to find quality designs.

I actually found most of the invitations on Etsy to be overpriced. Maybe I just need to brush up on my searching skills :-/

Is Elli a knock-off of Wedding Paper Divas? That design is IDENTICAL to a Wedding Paper Divas design, and the invites I ordered from WPD is also on the Elli site. Strange.

I was very happy with my invites from WPD – and they often have coupon codes, so they are quite affordable. Not to mention that my designer contacted me by phone to discuss my custom choices and helped create “custom” invites.

@bellaluna290:  Since you’re wedding isn’t for some time, I would suggest (if you’re not already) signing up for Gilt.com (it’s like Groupon, but for higher end stuff). I got a Gilt coupon  for Minted (spend $100, get $200 credit) and that is how I got our STD’s from them. Also, I waited for a % off sale. 

They haven’t had a Gilt sale in a while, so they are due. I linked you to an invite to join (you need an invite.) If you’re patient, it could pay off!

@bellaluna290:  We chose a design that is now discontinued, sadly, called Inspired Peony. It was really beautiful. Very similar (identical flowers) to this one on Elli.com: http://www.elli.com/peony-love-1.html

But with the customization I removed all traces of orange and just had shades of pink and coral. So beautiful!

@bellaluna290:  They usually run it as part of a “wedding sale”, along with wedding gowns, shoes, accessories, etc. You won’t be able to miss it if you check the Gilt email every day.

Good Luck!!
