DIY.  I made 40 invitations for about $40.  BUT I also had to buy a printer on top of that.

You can buy 40 premade invites and envolopes from micheals for $11.99 (not including 40% off coupon, which you can get online)

I ordered labels from onlinelabels.com, made monograms and put them on cardstock then put ribbon on, and printed the inside myself.

If I really planned it well I could have done it for $20. 

You can do flat ones too… and just buy pretty beach coloured paper, and ribbon and stuff.  Very easy, and cheap

My friend got married in April (she had a very small budget too) and got hers from Hobby Lobby. I think 50 came in a pack and they were very inexpensive and very cute!  Also, Hobby Lobby most always has coupons online so you might get them even cheaper.

I bought my invitations from Michael’s on sale and with a coupon and we got enough to do simple invites with an RSVP card and the envelopes for both for $45 for 60 sets. The other option I was considering was ordering a custom design off of Etsy and printing it with VistaPrint. If you’re tech savvy and crafty you can use Publisher or Photoshop to make a cute invite then have it printed at Staples or another printer.

I used Vistaprint with a groupon for mine. I spent $40 or so for 500, though they were postcards. I was very happy with the quality.

I purchased mine at Michaels. Each week they release 40-50% coupons on one full price item. I only needed one box, but depending on how many guests you might only have to go 2-3 times. I found it helpful to download the app on my iphone, display the coupon on your phone, and then also cut out the coupon from the flyer. That way you can use one coupon and then go back a little later and use the 2nd one. You just use the templates provided, change your font, size and colour and print on your home printer. I did a test run, and it came out great!
