I had never even heard of those so I just searched it. I agree they are less expensive, but they do kind of look cheapy. I think it really depends on the style of your wedding and if would put off the vibe you’re looking for.

@SimplyEuphoric:  I don’t think they look bad by any means, but I also don’t think they would be my first choice if I had other options. As far as going to budget route, I designed my own invites using a Photoshop-type program and uploading to VistaPrint. I bought a groupon that was $20 for $60 of services and then coupled it with a 50% off coupon from retailmenot.com and got 60 invites plus 60 each of my 3 inserts for a grand total of $53 including shipping and the groupon. If you don’t want to design your own you can buy a template off etsy, they have super cute ones!

@SimplyEuphoric:  I’m not sure what your budget is but I just got flat invites from David’s Bridal when they were on SUPER sale last year, bought my own pocketfolds from cards and pockets, attached them and bought then printed my own inserts using the free templates from cards and pockets and cardstock on sale at Staples. Very afforadable!

I used them, and so glad I did. Saved me so much money and people just throw them away anyway!

@SimplyEuphoric:  Can I ask what your budget is? or what you are trying to keep it around?

Storkie is what I used for wedding invites and the quality is great.

@SimplyEuphoric:  Do you mean arrive to the guest dirty? Then yes, some of them had a few marks on the outside but nothing terrible. For the postage I used a regular stamp on the outside and a postcard stamp for the RSVP so we did save money that way too!

@SimplyEuphoric:  We used these for our wedding! We liked them a lot and they held up really well in the mail. We got ours from David’s Bridal adn they were really good quality.

We wanted them mostly because they would save us money, but I was initally worried since they aren’t common but everyone thought they were really nice. My parent’s said theirs had a small tear when it arrived, but everyone else said they arrived fine.

I wanted to do those but went with traditional invites instead. My parents who were picking out invitations witb me commented that they looked cheap. I didnt think so but the I ended up seeing    other invites that I liked better. They are a good idea and I think guests would appreciate them more because they are more convenient.

I made my own from scratch…. Paper, materials, enevloped and stamps (which took half the budget alone) was just about $200. I designed them on word, spent a lot of quality time with a paper cutter, and addressed everything myself. I love how they turned out and many people commented on how professional they look. You have plenty of time to search around for a lot of options. 200 is a great budget!
