We used Vista Print for our wedding invitations and saved a ton of money. They have lots of different options to choose from. I was afriad that the invitations would look cheap because the price was so inexpensive. The invitations themselves were perfect. However, we didn’t really like the quality of envelopes.

We also used vistaprint. If you sign up for the emails, you’ll get promotional codes.


I had the same thing, the invitations looked great but the envelopes weren’t a very good quality. I got over it though. Cheappppppppppp.

We used sep and send invites from the wedding accessory superstore in arizona. We are from here and went into the store to order but you can order online. These invites come in a set with 3 pieces. you seperate them and send them and they are pretty inexpensive and pretty cheap in price but look nice! We used the big card as the invite, one little card as the return card, and one as a thank you note. The envelopes are cheap as well.

The cheapest way is probably to design them yourself, and print them on your own computer.

Second up, would design them yourself… and then take them to a place to print them for you (like Staples)

There are also Vendors on-line that will sell you the layout… which you customize, and then play a flat fee for using (Esty in particular has Vendors that offer this service) … and they send you the file that you can downroad… and again take out to print

Lastly… there are On-Line Vendors where you can pick out whatever you like, customize and then they print it up for you

Depending on how fancy the Invites… the more you pay.

Also how many pieces you have… a single Invite… or things like Reply Cards etc.  Single Envelopes, Double Envelopes, or Pocket Folders, Presentation Boxes etc.

Personally, we went with Option # 4.  And found what we were looking for with Wedding Paper Divas (but there is also a ton of other companies… like WBee – VistaPrint – Shutterfly – Zazzle – etc)

In our case, it was a straight forward, simple invite.  One card… one envelope.  We went low end with Quality… which was quite fine for our casual Back Home Reception Party.  And they still looked great.  We ordered 70 Invites with Envelopes and it worked out to aprox $ 2 per invite.  BUT that was Taxes & Shipping in as well as a bunch of extra Envelopes (error allowance).

(REMEMBER it is not ONE Invite per person… so that keeps costs down.  Plenty of Brides have messed up their numbers and ordered too many or too little, so be sure and sit down and figure all that beforehand… and the Etiquette required when it come to WHO gets an Invite.)

Mind you, these Websites have SALES / Discount Codes going on continually… sign up for email notifications from them.

Actually I would suggest beginning your search really early for Wedding Stationery… and playing around with what is out there… because if you save files, and don’t order… the websites will follow up with you and send you Discount Codes / Ofers etc… in hope you’ll purchase (Wedding Stationery Biz is VERY COMPETITIVE)

Hope this helps,

Honestly, you could have someone design them for you (I do this and have friends that do it if you want to PM me) and print them at Staples or Kinkos. They can also lazer-cut them so you don’t have to cut them by hand.

Vistaprint is the cheapest – but (IMO) pretty poor quality. :/

I used http://www.vponsale.com/invitations/ and they were a lot less expensive than most places I got quotes from online plus they turned out so so pretty!  They were also really great to work with.

I used 123print because I liked their designs better than vistaprint. I got 125 invitations, envelopes, response cards with envelopes, info cards, and some clear labels for about $150 with shipping. The envelopes weren’t the best quality but I didn’t really care.
