The trouble i am running into on the invitation sites is they dont really have the theme I am looking for. We are having a fall wedding, but without all the usual things that people think of when you hear fall, (i.e. no orange or yellow. no pumpkins, etc). The main color is deep red/burgundy, and then accents of green and brown and cream. Below is one of the first inspiration boards i made. Maybe that will help you visualize the look and feel we are going for.
Even though I am pretty artistic, and crafty, I cannot justify DYI’ing the invites. Ordering paper, supplies, and downloading tutorials, etc. and then spending hours upon hours being the perfectionist I am to make them all, knowing that they will get thrown out, makes me sick. But so does the thought of spending several hundred dollars.
There are several possibilites that could work off of Etsy, but I wanted to know from you ladies what a decent price would be for about 60 pocketfolds with response cards/envelopes, and menu cards? Can you guys help me find what it is that I am looking for, from a site/person that isnt going to cost me more than $250? Is that even possible?
My eyes feel like they are bleeding, from surfing the internet for so long, so any help/advice/leads you ladies can provide, would be so greatly appreciated.

@ Lilubird: I am so sorry if I was self promoting myself. I did not intend on that I was just trying to help a fellow bee that was asking for help.

I’m doing a rustic chic theme I guess you could say and I’ve been eye-balling these DIY invites just short of forever. I love them, just haven’t committed yet.

I know right? All I’m going to say is that I’m scared I will totally eff them up doing them on my own printer. Can invites like these be taken to a print shop?
(Sorry to threadjack OP!)

Thanks ladies, for your responses! (I know how much everyone hates the “invite question” threads, so I really didnt think I would get any responses, haha).
@Lilubird, thank you for your information. I will have to check out your site. 🙂
@Mrs.tobe, those ARE really nice! and for the price, I would totally consider them, and then maybe do a little DYI with some rinestones, or a colored ink stamp of some sort, to personalize them a bit. Very nice find 🙂
