    i really like the last one best. My second choice would be the first one. The one in the middle does not do anything for me personally.

    Which is your favourite? (Also- which fits best into your budget?)

    Oh my favourite is definitely the calligraphy one – elegant and subtle, but really stylish!

    We made our own invitations, so it worked out at about 80p per invite, even with over-ordering on materials in case it went wrong, so £40 for 50 invites give or take. I’d have loved to have spent loads getting professional ones done, butI couldn’t justify it knowing that they would end up in the bin!

    simply.gould:  Haha, they are somewhat labour-intensive, although it’s doing the calligraphy for the envelopes that’s proving the hardest task!

    I think I like the calligraphy the best because it’s letterpress, and I am such a sucker for letterpress stationary.

    That calligraphy invite is gorgeous.

    We got two deals for $200 of minted.com merchandise for only $100 from gilt (thanks to a tip from a bee), so we paid $253 for 130 minted.com minibook invitations and silver envelopes. 

    Our invites are a mix of sale from minted.com and diy for a total of $357 for 130 invites including inserts and everything but stamps.  Breaks down to $2.75 each, with some extras left over.

    I’m in love with this one from Vistaprint! My venue is from the 1920s but we are going with a glamorous white/gold/blush color palette and NOT a Great Gatsby theme. We’ll be changing the font to make it look a bit less “Roaring 20s” themed.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Forever invites. They are extremely classic but fun.

    We had ours printed with CardsandPockets.com. I would recommend them because their printing is actually extremely affordable and with excellent quality.

    I did the map and gold bellybands myself along with the envelope liners. I spent $250 on 45 invitations, so honestly, I think your budget is possible. If you’re willing to spend more money on letterpress, you should do it! Otherwise, there are DIY letterpress machines. My best friend did them for her wedding and they turned out GORGEOUS. I don’t have a picture of them though 🙁

    Oops! Forgot to post the cost! We’re getting Save-the-Date postcards, invitations and matching envelopes, RSVP cards and addressed return envelopes, envelope closure stickers, place cards and thank-you cards for about $200 total– our guest count is about 100 people, so probably 65-70 invites.

    With stamps the total cost should be $300 or so. I wanted those gorgeous luxurious letterpress pocketfold invites but our wedding is VERY low budget in the paper area.
