There are a bunch of letter press that are on clearance at Target right now.

If you go to the brides section at Michaels they have a section where you can get invitations for a great price.  Just make sure to bring your Michaels coupon or google a coupon online to get 40-50% off them. This girl at my work did that and her invitations looked amazing!

When I was ordering my Save the Date magnets (yay!) from vistaprint.com, I saw that they had reasonably priced, cute, wedding invitations as well.

They also do “matching sets” of popular designs, so you could get matching envelopes, RSVPs, and Thank You cards. I have also found that Paper and More has pretty good rates too. If we weren’t making our own invites, I’d probably go with them (cute designs, some as low as $0.40 per invite!).

There are also other printing sites, such as Over Night Prints, which I’ve heard good things of:

If you decide to brave printing your own (its very scary at first, but it gets better, I promise!) Cards & Pockets is a good site for coordinating card stock:

Also, take a look at these sites:

Good luck finding invitations you love! 🙂

What do you consider cheap? I think we got ours for pretty cheap on Etsy. We got 67 complete sets (invite, response, thank you cards all with return addressed envelopes) for $192. We got them from Whimsical Prints.

I know this is going against what everyone else seems to love to do, but I would actually suggest against doing your own. Its really time consuming, and in my opinion not worth stressing over because most people will just look at them and, at the most, hang them on their fridge for a month then throw them away. Some will throw them away right after looking, then call you constantly asking for information that you painstakenly PUT ON THE CARD.

We used http://www.theamericanwedding.com/

It was about $280 for 150 invitations/inner envelope/outer envelope/reply cards w/ envelope. They also printed our return address on all of the outer envelopes. So I thought that was super affordable. And I think that they look pretty nice.

Good luck!

All our inviatations (90 count) were in a kit from Michaels with a coupon, I think I got all the kits (3 kits with 30 invites each) for $90. I thought that was pretty good, the program is really easy to follow, we printed out a practice one and it looks great. I know Wal-mart and Target also have some great options for kits, and if you like any at Target, if you register there (at least 10 items) they’ll send you a $20 gift card (at least they did for us), which would help out. Hope this helps!

Definitely check out the options that Michael’s has– we are using one of their invitation kits to make ours. I was a little worried that they would turn out looking cheap, but we finished the first one last night and it looks great!

I got mine at Swoozie’s (www.swoozies.com) and they cost me less than $2 per invited including rsvp card & envelope, invitation, and envelope. They look FABULOUS!
